The Shoremen responded with a goal by Grant Hughes two minutes later, and then Bennett Cord struck for the second time with his team playing two men up to extend Washington’s lead to 10-6. It was one of three extra-man goals the hosts scored on the day.

Senior attackman Steve Rijo struck for a career-high seven goals as Colorado College added to its string of Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference regular-season championships with a 12-4 victory over Southwestern University on Sunday afternoon at Washburn Field.
The Tigers improved to 10-4 overall and clinched their fourth consecutive crown with a 4-0 conference record. CC also ran its all-time record to 24-0 in SCAC regular-season games.
Senior attackman Charles Curtis also figured prominently in the outcome, scoring twice and setting up three other Tiger goals. His tally with 3:44 remaining in the second quarter proved to be his second game winner of the season.
At the other end of the field, senior defenders Nate Pearson and James Iglehart cause three turnovers apiece.
“I am real proud of our seniors and how they represented our program the last four years,” head coach Sean Woods said. “It was nice to see them play so well on Senior Day.”
After respectfully watching the pre-game ceremony, the Pirates did their best to try to spoil the day for Colorado College.
Southwestern frustrated the Tigers’ attack for much of the first quarter and grabbed a 1-0 lead when Ross Warkentin converted off a feed from Tyler Downing with 7:05 to play.
Just when it appeared the Pirates might hold the advantage after 15 minutes, Rijo took things into his own hands.
He put CC on the board with 1:58 remaining in the frame and then added a pair of markers during the final minute, the last of which came with five ticks on the clock.
“There was a point in the first quarter when it was getting a little slow, a little stale,” Rijo said. “I figured why not go out there and ignite something. Thankfully I was able to get a pass from Tyler (Allen) and put it in.”
After freshman midfielder Eric Neumeyer gave the Tigers a 4-1 lead early in the second quarter, SU had a golden opportunity to close the gap when Colorado College had three players in the box. The Pirates, however, managed just two shots, only one of which was on target.
