Another Loss for Men’s Lacrosse


Mason Brooks, Staff Writer

Hartford Men’s Lacrosse team traveled to take on the defending America East Conference Champion, UAlbany, Saturday, March 30. Albany got off to a fast start, scoring the first three goals of the day.  This quick deficit woke the Hawks up, as Hartford would come back with three goals of their own before the end of the first.  After closing the opening quarter with one final goal, the Great Danes got the early advantage in the second quarter, going up 5-3.  The Hawks pulled within one throughout the quarter and ended the half down 6-5 to Albany.  Sophomore Christian Paley brought the game back to a tie with a score 34 seconds into the second half.  Following this however, UAlbany put the game away.  Three straight goals for the Great Danes led to a slippery deficit the Hawks could not climb back from.  At the final buzzer, the score held 14-10, in favor of UAlbany. Though Hartford was handed another loss in their challenging, young season, there were some bright spots on the day.  Two Hawks scored hat tricks on the day.  Junior Owen Trepeta and sophomore Christian Paley each netted three goals on the day. Junior Ty Thompson also scored multiple goals with two of his own, while leading the team in points thanks to his two assists as well.  In goal, freshman Cam Logan made a game-high 12 saves during the contest. This loss to UAlbany puts Hartford Men’s Lacrosse at a 1-9 record on the season, with a 1-2 America East record.  The Hawks will be coming home Saturday, April 6, at 2p.m. to face off in a Conference battle against UMass Lowell.
