via press release – photo via Lynn web site   North Canton, Ohio – Lynn University’s lacrosse team never trailed on Monday, but also never created enough of a cushion to coast comfortably against Walsh University. The 17th-ranked Fighting Knights at least had an answer for every Cavaliers push as the Blue and White ended their northern road trip with a 13-12 nonconference triumph to get back in the win column.
