Catholic Wins Season-Opener Versus Sewanee, 10-9

WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America men's lacrosse team won its season-opener in a neutral site game versus 2016 NCAA Tournament qualifier Sewanee, 10-9. All-American Tim Keith led the way with four goals.

Keith scored four of Catholic's first eight goals as the Cardinals never trailed. Sewanee was able to tie it up four times in the first half, but Catholic was able to answer each time.

The two teams went into the half knotted at five-all, but Catholic opened up the scoring in the third as senior Victor Licata converted on the feed from classmate Jack Murphy to go up for good.

Six different Cardinals scored as junior Bennett Bradley joined Keith as a multi-time scorer with two goals.

Keith added an assist for a five-point day.

Both Licata and Ethan Rodriguez registered two-point days with a goal and an assist each.

Catholic held in edge in man-up goals, as the Cards scored twice on seven opportunities while they held Sewanee scoreless in three chances.

The Cardinals also made the most of their offensive sets, scoring 10 times on 34 shots, while Sewanee only converted nine on 43 shots.

Next up, the Cards travel to Randolph-Macon on Saturday with face-off set for 1 p.m.
