Men's Lacrosse vs. Washington College
That was the reaction when Corey Gwin netted the game winner over Eastern Shore rival Washington College on Saturday afternoon at Sea Gull Stadium to deliver the 7-6 overtime victory. It was just the second time in the 52 game series history that a game has gone to overtime with the last time coming on May 1, 1999 in a 16-15 win for the Sea Gulls in Chestertown, Maryland. Gwin netted four goals on the afternoon including the first and last goals of the game. He gave Salisbury a 1-0 lead finishing off a nice pass from Josh Melton and also was in the right place at the right time to push the lead to two midway through the third quarter. However, his most important marker of the contest came with 56 seconds left in overtime as Gwin did the work himself finding the back of the net on this unassisted effort to deliver the maroon and the Charles B. Clark Cup. Brandon Warren anchored a strong day on the defensive end tallying a career-high 12 saves including nine in the second half. Warren also scooped up three groundballs on his way to claiming his third win of the season. The win is Salisbury’s fifth straight victory in the series with Washington College and 32nd overall in the series. Salisbury returns to action on Saturday, March 24 when it opens Capital Athletic Conference play on the road against No. 4 York College of Pennsylvania in a rematch of last season’s CAC championship game. Face-off between the Sea Gulls and Spartans is set for 1 p.m.
