MIDDLETOWN, R.I. — The Endicott men's lacrosse team defeated Salve Regina University, 14-8, on Saturday night at Gaudet Field in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) opener for both teams.
Endicott found its form when it mattered most as the Gulls outscored Salve Regina 6-1 in the fourth quarter to pull away with the win.
Meanwhile, in the third, freshman attack Jack Sutherland (Sudbury, Mass.) jumpstarted Endicott's offense when he buried a goal with two seconds remaining in the quarter for an 8-7 lead headed into the fourth.
From there, Nick Arcadipane (Groveland, Mass.), Derek Yannone (Lynnfield, Mass.) and Myles Horn (Pocasset, Mass.) all scored in succession to make it 11-7 before Arcadipane, Will Clark (Burnt Hills, N.Y.), and Horn followed with markers later in the quarter to finish off the victory.
