BABSON PARK, Fla. (March 1, 2021) – The second ever game in the history of the Webber International University men’s lacrosse team was also the first win in program history for the Warriors, who defeated Point University 21-6 on Monday to improve to 1-1 both overall and in the Appalachian Athletic Conference.
Webber scored first less than 10 seconds into the game on a goal by Alex West assisted by Chase Jackson, led 2-0 less than a minute in on a goal by Alexander Kew, and then led 3-0 less than a minute and a half in on a goal by Blake Nelson assisted by Jack Ostrander.
Nelson would go on to add two more goals in the first quarter while West added another, giving Webber an 8-2 advantage after the opening 15 minutes.
In the end, Nelson and West both finished with five goals and had one assist for six total points.
Jackson paced the Warriors in assists with two and has now reached at least three points in both games so far this season, something both he and Nelson have accomplished so far.
Winning the first game in program history in goal for the Warriors was Brad Taylor.
Webber’s Head Men’s Lacrosse Coach Chris Burdick said, “First off, you have to really respect Coach Feeley’s Point squad. That Point team can teach us all a lot about heart and what this game is all about. From our perspective, this is a big moment for all of the players, but especially for Alex Germilus and Reynold Rey, who helped start this program. We will enjoy this first win for a few minutes, but we have to get to work preparing for a very good Keiser team on Wednesday”.
Next up in only two days, Webber will play on the road for the first time in program history as the Warriors head to West Palm Beach, Florida, to battle No. 4 nationally-ranked Keiser University at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3. It will be the second game against a top-five nationally-ranked team for the Warriors only three games into their inaugural season.
