WASHINGTON - The Catholic University men's lacrosse team wrapped up its season with a 7-6 overtime loss to Landmark foe Susquehanna on Saturday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium.

Senior Sean Cummins led CUA with three goals, while Tim Keith, Cam Feldman, and William Cowan each found the back of the net once.

Susquehanna took an early 2-0 lead after the first quarter.

Cummins scored twice in the second period to offset two Crusaders' goals and take a 4-2 score into the halftime intermission. Cowan and Billy Kirmsse set up each of Cummins goals.

Cam Feldman assisted on Cowan's score at the 13:19 mark in the third period to cut the deficit to one before Cummins tied the game at 4-4 on an unassisted score with 5:31 left in the quarter.

The Crusaders took back the lead with Nick Reardon's second goal of the game but Tim Keith answered back with less than two minutes left to play in the third for a 5-5 tie.

Feldman gave Catholic its first lead of the game just 39 seconds into the final quarter from Kirmsse's second helper.

With neither team giving an inch, the game would remain scoreless for the next seven minutes. Reardon scored again for Susquehanna to tie it at 6 a piece and force overtime.

In the four minute extra period, Kevin Murray won his ninth faceoff of the game, giving the Cardinals the first posession. Brian Keith ripped a shot off but Jared Knowlton came up with his 15th save of the game for the Crusaders.

Susquehanna would score on the ensuing posession and take the overtime win, 7-6.

Harrison Holak picked up 13 saves in the loss. Kevin Murray scooped up a game-high six ground balls and Jack Drexel picked up five. Dan McCallan forced three turnovers to go with four ground balls.
