WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America men's lacrosse team continued its best start in program history as the Cardinals improved to 10-1 and 2-0 in Landmark play as they downed Scranton, 12-4.
Catholic led 3-1 at halftime but exploded out of the break with five goals in the third to take control of the game.
Scranton actually scored the first goal of the game, but Catholic answered just a minute and a half late as Licata tied it up. The gamewinner came off the stick of Bradley at 9:02 in the second.
While the offense clicked in the second, the Cards' defense was strong throughout as they caused 15 turnovers and forced the Royals into 19 miscues.
Sophomore Patrick Kamm led the charge with game-highs of four caused turnovers and six ground balls.
Sophomore goalie Jack Schmidt improved to 5-0 on the year as he stops six shots and allowed just three goals. He now boasts a 5.72 goals against average and .603 save percentage.
The Cardinals outshot Scranton, 40-25 and earned the advantage in the faceoff circle, 12-8.
Catholic will look to continue its nine-game winning streak when they travel to Susquehanna next Saturday at 1 p.m.
