Dartmouth men’s lacrosse will head south on I-89 on Tuesday for a mid-week game against Boston University, taking on the Terriers for the first time in program history.
LAST TIME OUT
A goal by captain Jack Korzelius with 1.9 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter lifted the Big Green over Canisius, 13-12, in the season opener at Scully-Fahey Field on Saturday.
Korzelius ended the afternoon with three goals, while six other players had multi-point performances. In his first collegiate game, George Prince led the team with one goal and three assists for four points, and Matt Paul and Richie Loftus had a pair of tallies each. Will Randell, Ben Martin and Liam O’Connell had one of each.
Goalie George Christopher scored his first collegiate tally at the end of the first quarter, firing from two-thirds down the field while the Canisius netminder was off his post. He was the first Division I goalie to find the back of the net this season.
Dartmouth outshot the Golden Griffs, 41-26. Both teams went 13-for-26 in face-offs.
SCOUTING THE TERRIERS
BU enters Tuesday’s contest with a 1-1 mark, opening the season with an exciting 12-11 overtime win against Providence at home before falling to Ohio State, 15-9. Through two games, James Burr and Chris Gray are tied for first on the team with seven points.
BETWEEN THE PIPES
Both Christopher and Alex Burnley played in the game against the Golden Griffins on Saturday. Christopher started and played the first 32 minutes, making three saves and netting one goal before making way for Burnley, who was in net for the remaining 27. The rookie made a trio of saves as well.
LEADING THE WAY
Nine Big Green players ended the game on Saturday with at least one point, being led by Prince with four. Four Dartmouth players netted man-up tallies (Korzelius, Loftus, O’Connell and Martin), while Chris Bacotti was first with seven ground balls. He also went 8-for-15 at the X.
