AMHERST, Mass. – The No. 10 nationally ranked Amherst men's lacrosse team outscored Endicott 3-2 with under nine minutes left in the fourth quarter to register an eventual 12-10 win over the Gulls on Wednesday night.

After Colin Bannon (Westport, Conn.) pulled Endicott within one goal (9-8) at the 13:19 mark of the fourth, Amherst potted back-to-back tallies at 8:53 and 7:35, respectively, which gave the hosts an insurmountable three-goal advantage late in the contest.

Will Jennings (Danvers, Mass.) paced the Gulls on offense with three goals and three assists, while Bannon finished with three tallies and one helper. Bryan McManus (Madison, Conn.) added two strikes, and Hayden Souza (West Hartford, Conn.) and Matthew Faucher (Western Springs, Ill.) chipped in with solo tallies.

Grant Thompson (South Hamilton, Mass.) recorded a career-high 16 saves, while Tommy Hughes (Coram, N.Y.) went 15-for-24 at the face-off X to round out the highlights for the Gulls.
