(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) – The Walsh men's lacrosse team fell to visiting Wheeling Jesuit by a score of 13-5 on a chilly Saturday afternoon at Vasco Field. The Cavaliers dropped to 1-8 on the season while the Cardinals now stand at 2-8.
The Cavs initially got on the board first in the battle of Catholic colleges when Bryan Crim scored unassisted just 1:10 into the game. However, the Cardinals were able to answer just over a minute later in a 5-0 run. Crim scored his second goal of the game just before the half to make the score 5-2 at the break.
Jesuit scored the first two of the third before Dylan Ciolino made a save and went coast-to-coast to score a goal at the 6:34 mark. It's the first goal by a goalie in program history.
That made the score 7-3, but Walsh was unable to cut the deficit smaller than four goals.
Ciolino ended up with eight saves on the day. Crim added four ground balls and Ryan Rafact went 9-for-17 on face-offs.
The Cavs will now start a three-game stretch on the road and will return to action a week from today at Indianapolis. Face-off is set for 1 p.m.
