“We played solid game on both sides of the ball to give us a much need road victory,” said head coach Jamie Munro. “We controlled the ball and found a way to score on a strong Penn defense. Pete Lowell posted a great game for us between the pipes and our defense really stepped up to help him out.”
The University of Denver men’s lacrosse team (4-1) turned in a 12-6 road win over the University of Pennsylvania (1-2) on Friday afternoon at Franklin Field.
Sophomore midfielder Jamie Lincoln (St. Catharines, Ontario) led the Pioneers with three goals as Denver secured its fourth straight win of the season. Also contributing for the Pioneers was senior Joey Murray (Denver, Colo.) as he finished with two goals and one assist, while sophomore Andrew Lay (Denver, Colo.) added two goals of his own.
After finding themselves trailing 4-2 mid-way through the second quarter, the Pioneers switch gears and scored eight straight goals that stretched two quarters to take a 10-4 lead over the Quakers.
In the second, Andrzejewski scored off a Corey Winkoff feed, and then Al Kohart scored unassisted to give Penn a 3-1 lead before the quarter was two minutes old. Denver’s Lay got one of the goals back a minute after Kohart’s score, but Andrzejewski matched with his second goal and third point of the day with 6:35 left before the break.
Denver remains on the road this weekend, traveling to Providence, R.I., to face the Brown Bears at 11 a.m. (MT) on Sunday.
