Buzzer-Beater Upends Catholic at Moravian

Bethlehem, Pa. — The Catholic University of America men's lacrosse team was topped at Moravian on Saturday afternoon as the Greyhounds won with a buzzer-beating goal, scoring with 6.5 seconds left to take the victory, 5-4.

In a close game, the Cards led by a goal at the half, 3-2. Moravian knotted it up with less than three minutes to play in the third but Catholic came back with a go-ahead goal by senior Daniel Cannon off the feed from sophomore Brendan Leniw.

It was all Greyhounds from there however as they scored with 1:44 left to tie it up prior to the gamewinner in the final seconds.

Seniors Bennett Bradley, Samuel Montgomery and Liam Clancy joined their classmate as the goal-scorers for the Cardinals.

Moravian goalie Kurt Dick came up with 15 saves to help keep the Catholic in check as the Cards outshot Moravian, 36-23.

Catholic is now set for its season-finale and senior day next Saturday, April 28, against Elizabethtown at 1 p.m.
