SAVANNAH, Ga. (February 27, 2022) – The Webber International University men’s lacrosse team travel to Savannah, Georgia to battle the SCAD-Savannah Bees for its second game in three days on Sunday afternoon, resulting in a 15-6 victory for the Warriors.

Less than a minute into the game, the Warriors would draw first blood after a goal from Alexander Kew assisted by Jack Ostrander. Six minutes later, SCAD would respond with a goal of their own to tie the game up. With just 27 seconds left in the quarter, Webber would retake the lead on a goal from Christian Tapia assisted by Houston Finlayson.

The second quarter included two goals from Chase Jackson and two from Finlayson, both of which were man-up goals. Jonathan Schrager and Blake Nelson would pick up the other two goals in the quarter.

The third quarter would be more of the same as the Warriors would outscore the Bees 5-1. First, a goal from Kew assisted by Nelson and then later, four goals in less than four minutes would extend the Warrior-lead to 13-2 heading into the final quarter. Jackson would pick up his hat-trick in the third quarter followed by another goal from Nelson and Dave Becker’s first goal of the season. The fourth quarter would be the only quarter that SCAD would outscore the Warriors. The Bees would score four times while Webber would score twice, first from Schrager for his second of the game followed by Connor Herring’s first goal of the season.
