ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. - The No. 6 Salisbury University men's lacrosse team ended its regular-season Capital Athletic Conference schedule on Saturday with a 15-4 win over St. Mary's College of Maryland.
Salisbury was led by attackmen, senior Zach Hill and sophomore Wade Korvin, who both netted hat tricks. Hill had a team-high four points. Midfielders, senior Eric Kluge and junior Greg Korvin tied for a team-high two assists.
After nearly nine minutes of scoreless action to start the game, the Sea Gulls fell to an early deficit on a goal by Tim Perugini, but the Seahawks' early lead was short lived.
Junior midfielder Tyler Smith put away the Gulls' first goal at the 4:45 mark to tie the game, which was followed by sophomore midfielder John Brewer's first goal of the season, giving Salisbury (13-3, 6-0 CAC) a 2-1 lead.
SU entered the second quarter with the lead, but the second goal for St. Mary's tied the game, before Salisbury outscored the Seahawks 4-1 in the remainder of the half.
Freshman attackman Brady Dashiell scored twice in the second quarter at the 5:34 and 3:07 marks, sandwiching a man-down goal by senior defender Brett Baer. Dashiell's goals were assisted by Smith and Hill, respectively.
The Seahawks' Gordy Long cut the Salisbury lead to 5-3, but Smith netted his second goal in the final minute of the first half, giving SU a 6-3 lead heading into the break.
At the half, Salisbury held a slight edge in shots (20-17), ground balls (19-17) and faceoffs won (7-of-12).
Greg Korvin led the Sea Gull scoring in the third quarter, registering a point on each of SU's two goals. He netted his first score of the game with 4:56 left in the period, before assisting Wade Korvin's goal at the 3:48 mark, increasing Salisbury's lead to 8-3.
The Sea Gulls netted seven goals in the fourth quarter to cap the win, including three by Hill.
Junior goalkeeper Alex Taylor played 58:30 in the goal, with five saves, for the win.
Salisbury now looks forward to its final regular-season game against Washington (Md.) College, as it travels to Chestertown, Md. to chase the Charles B. Clark cup on Wednesday; the game is set for 7 p.m.
