Rollason Breaks Scoring Record as Men's Lax Takes on Wooster

HIRAM, Ohio – Senior Nick Rollason once again etched his name in the Hiram men's lacrosse history books as the Terriers took on The College of Wooster on Saturday afternoon.

With two minutes remaining in the first half of action, Rollason tallied his second goal of the game, giving him 86 for his career and becoming the all-time scoring leader in Terrier history. His mark bested the previous tally of 85, originally held by Greg Summers (2013-16).

The senior finished the day with three goals, giving him 87 for his career. His trio of scores now gave him seven-consecutive multi-goal games to open the 2018 season. He has scored at least three, five times, and bested the single-game goals record (seven) in a 19-8 win over Franciscan.

Throughout his career, Rollason has amassed 26 multi-goal games, and became just the second player in school history to reach 80 career markers. Additionally, with eight games to play in the season, the Terriers senior has the opportunity to become the first to break both 90 and 100 career tallies.

As for the game, the men's lacrosse team fell by a 24-13 score, not being able to shake off a 10-2, first-quarter deficit. Rollason and sophomore Tim Stucky provided the scoring for Hiram, but the Terriers found themselves trailing by eight after 15 minutes.

After three more consecutive goals by the Scots, the Terriers responded to end the half. Hiram controlled the final 10 minutes of the second stanza, outscoring Wooster 6-1 to pull within six by the break.

After Evan Pinney scored on an assist from Stucky, the senior assisted on Hunter Jenkins' first tally of the afternoon.

Stucky followed Jenkins with his second goal of the game, before Jenkins collected his second on a returned favor from Stucky. The Terrier sophomores combined for 13 points in the game.

Jenkins would assist on two more goals, including Rollason's record-breaker at the two-minute mark, which was followed by another from Stucky. When the dust settled, Hiram had rattled off a six-goal swing, cutting an 11-goal deficit down to five.

The second half was controlled by the Scots, outscoring the Terriers 10-5 to come away with the 11-goal win.

Rollason added his third of the game, while Stucky scored twice more in the third quarter. The Terrier scoring was rounded out by a second from Pinney and Jonah Austin's fifth of the season with just over a minute to play.

Stucky led the Terrier offensive effort with five goals and seven total points. Jenkins added six points (two goals/three assists), while Rollason totaled five and Pinney, four.

Hiram will be back in action on Wednesday, March 28, as they play the middle game of a three-game home stand. The matchup with Bethany College is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.
