Men's Lacrosse Defeated by Kenyon on Senior Day

HIRAM, OHIO  --  The Hiram College men's lacrosse team was defeated by Kenyon College, 17-1, in a North Coast Athletic Conference game at Charles A. Henry Field on senior day.

Kenyon (7-6, 3-2 NCAC) took control right from the start scoring seven goals in the first quarter, including scoring their first goal just eight seconds in, to lead 7-0 after the first 15 minutes.

In the second quarter, the Lords tallied the only two scores of the period at the 14:53 and 3:57 minute marks to take a sizeable 9-0 advantage into the locker rooms.

Kenyon continued the scoring in the third quarter finding the back of the net three more times to boast a 12-0 margin heading into the final 15 minutes.

In the fourth quarter, Hiram (1-8, 1-3 NCAC) got on the board with what would be its only score of the game with a score from freshman Chris Lekan (North Olmsted/Holy Name) on a man-up advantage and an assist from senior Caleb Capron (Salem/West Branch) to make the score 12-1.  But the Lords scored five goals following the Lekan marker to cruise to the 17-1 final.

Hiram recorded 23 shots in the game, but Lekan and Capron were the only point scorers with a goal and an assist respectively.

In net, freshman Sawyer Lott (Sunbury/Big Walnut) started the game and played 43:14 making 10 saves in 22 shots faced.  Fellow freshman Mike Malloy (Norristown, Pa./Norristown) played the final 16:46 and made five saves in 10 shots faced.

Hiram returns to action tomorrow (Sunday, Apr. 14) to host The College of Wooster in a NCAC game at Henry Field.  The game is slated to begin at 1 p.m.
