Last season was a disappointment for the Salisbury University Men’s lacrosse team. They finished 16-4, had several long winning streaks stopped, and lost in the quarterfinals to Stevenson. Keep in mind though the last time the Sea Gulls had at least four losses in a season was 2002. In 2003 they followed that up with a 20-1 season and a national title.
Today they took the first step. The #5 ranked Sea Gulls won their season opener 19-6 over host Greensboro College. Jake DeLillo led Salisbury with 5 goals, Sam Bradman and Matt Cannone added four apiece in the win. The Gulls out shot Greensboro 53-23 including 36-9 in the second half. The downside for Salisbury was they were 2-9 with the extra man and committed 10 penalties for 8:30. They did hold Greensboro to 1-10 when they were up a man.
Next week #18 Lynchburg comes to town for the home opener at 1pm. This years schedule features defending national champion Cortland State, Gettysburg, the annual “War On The Shore” vs. Washington College, and a trip to Stevenson on April 3rd.
I will be here all season long to keep you updated on the Sea Gulls and other local college lacrosse.
