Eagles Lose Season Opener at Frostburg State

FROSTBURG, Md. – Frostburg State outscored the Bridgewater College men's lacrosse team 4-1 in each of the game's four quarters, as the Eagles dropped their season opener 16-4 on the road Saturday.

Senior goalie Andrew Buss stopped over 50% of his shots faced, finishing with 17 saves. Sean Nevin picked up five ground balls, while freshman Sean MacLeish earned the start in his first collegiate contest and added three ground balls.

Thomas Maher led the attack with two goals, while Chris Voorhees added a goal and an assist.

The Bobcats, who are receiving votes in the top-20 polls and were nationally-ranked when they came to Jopson Field last spring, were bolstered by the faceoff work of Kyle Horak (9-of-10) and Erik Geiser (10-of-13, seven ground balls).

After FSU had opened up a 3-0 lead, Voorhees got the Eagles on the board with 2:48 left in the first quarter. Bridgewater trailed 4-1 after one.

Following a Nate Collins tally, Maher scored unassisted midway through the second quarter as the Eagles were hanging in down 5-2.

Frostburg State opened things up with consecutive goals from Keegan Colegrove however, and Tate Rolland followed 22 seconds after the second Colegrove tally to make it 8-2 at halftime.

Sophomore Blake Mann finished off a Voorhees pass with 9:49 left in the contest, but by that point the Eagles trailed 13-4.

Colegrove finished with a game-high five points (three goals, two assists) for Frostburg State, while Rolland and Nate Collins also had hat tricks.

Bridgewater (0-1) will continue a three game road trip on Wednesday at Ferrum.
