NCAA Div III Lacrosse: Colorado College Men’s Lacrosse (5-2) Keeps It Close In First-Half, Loses To #7 Salisbury 9-4 At Sea Gull Stadium On March 20

Colorado College Men's Lacrosse vs. Salisbury

Coaches will tell you there is no such thing as a moral victory, but Colorado College can feel pretty good about its effort on Wednesday night at No. 7 Salisbury University.
Senior attackman Charles Curtis struck for two goals and added a pair of assists, while freshman goaltender Chase Murphy recorded 12 assists to keep the Tigers within striking distance. The reigning Division III national champion Seagulls, however, broke the game open with four consecutive markers in the third period and went on to post a 9-4 victory.
Thanks to tallies by junior midfielder Jack Kreitler and freshman midfielder Eric Neumeyer, both off of feeds from Curtis, CC trailed just 4-2 at halftime. The deficit was still manageable after Salisbury’s Eric Kluge notched his third goal of the contest 4:26 into the second half.
But with less than five minutes to play in the third quarter, the Seagulls extended their lead to 7-2 when Greg Korvin and Zeke Smith scored just 22 seconds apart, and Wade Korvin gave his team a six-goal advantage with 31 seconds to go in the frame.
Curtis scored his first goal with two seconds remaining in the third quarter to make the count 8-3, and after Luke Phipps added a man-up tally 1:20 into the fourth stanza, the Colorado College co-captain struck for a man-up goal of his own off a pass from senior attackman Steve Rijo to close out the scoring.
Once again, Murphy was stellar between the pipes, finishing with double-digit saves for the fourth time this season. Freshman defenseman Tim Jenkins paced the defensive effort with thee caused turnovers and four ground balls.

NCAA Div III Lacrosse: Colorado College Men’s Lacrosse (5-1) Rolls Over Babson (MA) 7-2 At Johns Hopkins’ Homewood Field On March 16; Next Up Is Defending National Champion Salisbury

Colorado College Men's Lacrosse vs Babson

Colorado College made the most of its first appearance at one of the meccas of lacrosse, using five consecutive goals in the second quarter to post a 7-2 victory over Babson College on Saturday night at Johns Hopkins University.
“It was a good game and a great night,” head coach Sean Woods said. “We talked about the history of Homewood Field and how many great games have been played here. It was a solid effort by everybody, especially the defense.”
Freshman goaltender Chase Murphy stopped 14 shots, the third time this season he finished with double-digit saves. It also marked the third game in a row CC the defense has held an opponent to fewer than five goals.
“Chase was standing on his head,” Woods said. “He really had a fabulous game and our defense was giving up the right shots. Chase made all the saves he should have and, quite frankly, a few that he should not have made.”
After falling behind 1-0 early in the second quarter, the Tigers struck for five unanswered markers to build a four-point lead after 30 minutes.
“We put the brakes on a little bit in the second half and focused on having quality possessions,” Woods said. “We were up four goals so we took our opportunities when they came.”
Colorado College (5-1) puts its three-game winning streak on the line when it visits No. 7 Salisbury University on Wednesday night.
“Our guys were up to the challenge of playing under the bright lights at Homewood Field and they’ll be up for the challenge of playing under the bright lights at Salisbury,” Woods said. “It’s a big challenge, but one that we’re excited about.”

NCAA Div III Lacrosse: Colorado College Men’s Lacrosse (4-1) Defeats Wheaton 9-4 On March 13; Heads East On “Tough” 4-Game Roadtrip Against Babson, Salisbury, Dickinson And Marymount

Colorado College Men's Lacrosse vs Wheaton

After spending the last three days cramming for finals, Colorado College had all the answers during Wednesday’s 9-4 victory over Wheaton College.
“I’m extremely proud of the way our guys handled this game,” head coach Sean Woods said. “We had every excuse not to play well. We were coming off of a big win, it was the end of the block and our players just finished their finals, and it is the start of spring break.”
With the score tied at 1-1 late in the second quarter, Jack Kreitler ignited the Tigers’ attack when he scored back-to-back goals during a 4-0 run that helped CC kick off its spring break in fine fashion at a sun-splashed Washburn Field.
Kreitler drove all the way on around the net and beat junior goalkeeper Harrison Bramhall from point-blank range with 3:06 remaining in the first half to give CC a 3-1 lead. Just 1:13 later, the junior midfielder picked up a ground ball in the defensive zone and went coast-to-coast for his eighth goal of the season.
Seven seconds after the ensuing faceoff, sophomore midfielder Henri Halle grabbed a loose ball and found Tyler Allen to the left of the cage. The junior attackman struck for the Tigers’ fourth tally in a span of 3:19 and notched what proved to be the game-winning goal.
“Kreitler provides instant offense,” Woods said. “His back-to-back goals provided a big spark when we really needed it. Henri was fantastic at both ends of the field.
“We played very smart and handled their zone extremely well. We moved the ball around and were very unselfish.”
Wheaton scored three times in the second half, the first of which came when senior attackman Billy McNamara’s muscled his way through the CC defense to make the score 5-2 with 3:00 to play in the third quarter.
