s UConn Men's Lacrosse: UConn Defeats Boston University In PCLL Opener

(Boston, MA) The UConn Men’s Lacrosse team started conference play this past Friday when the Huskies traveled to Nickerson Field to play the Boston University Terriers. The Huskies started the game off by scoring the first two goals. Freshman Charlie Ogalin had his first career goal as he fired a shot into an open net, while another newcomer, Freshmen Zach Rubin also buried one in the back of the net, with an assist going to Charlie Ogalin.

The Terriers then scored on a man-up opportunity to make it 2-1. Sophomore Sean Murphy scored in the second quarter to make it 3-1 and Sophomore Travis Church added another to make it 4-1. The Terriers got another man-up goal in the second quarter. The half ended with the Huskies leading 4-2, and that would be the end of the scoring for the Terriers.

The beginning of the second half started off the same as the first half, but soon the Huskies found their groove and started rolling. The Huskies riding game was particularly well, forcing several dropped passes and turnovers, including one that Junior Mason Banwell scooped up and hit an open Charlie Ogalin for his second goal of the night. With man-up goals from Senior Wes Downing, and another two from Zach Rubin, the Huskies were able to increase their lead and never let go.

The defense for the Huskies played particularly well, helping Junior goalie Peter Gabriele keep the Terriers shooters at bay. After giving up two goals early on in man down situations the Huskies defense tightened up, giving up no goals in the second half. The win was a big one for the Huskies, improving their record to 2-0, but more importantly, starting conference play off with a win. The Huskies travel to WPI on Tuesday, March 30th and then host conference foe Northeastern at Sherman Field at 8 pm on April 2nd.
