Men's Lacrosse Spoil Northland's First Home Game
Mar 25, 2017
ASHLAND, Wis. - In the first-ever home game for the Northland College Men's Lacrosse Program, the Jacks struck first and even built a two-goal lead before UD spoiled the LumberJack home debut as the Spartans won 17-6 on Saturday afternoon.
Dubuque's Josh Berry-Wingate would make sure that the Northland lead would not last long as he would win 19 of 21 faceoffs in the game, including several that led to breakout, unassisted goals by himself. Three straight Spartan goals gave Dubuque their first lead of the game.
The second quarter belonged to the Spartans as they would outscore Northland 7-1. Northland trailed at halftime 10-4. Looking to get back into the game, it was UD's defensive pressure which kept the Jacks at bay allowing two Northland shots in the third quarter and none reaching the net.
Tyson Svoboda led UD after he scored five goals, Matt Penalvert and Josh Berry-Wingate both finished with four goals, Michael Jango had three and Michael Julius one goal. UD held the large margin in shots in the game, 48-16 and shots on goal 39-10. UD collectd 59 ground balls with Berry-Wingate leading all players with 17 ground balls.
The Spartans improved to 4-4 overall.
