Lacrosse loses its second

St. John’s men’s lacrosse team swallowed a difficult loss at the hands of the Bellarmine Knights Saturday afternoon in Louisville, Ky. In their second road game of the season, the Red Storm (0-2) was hoping for a win but fell just short by a final score of 12-11.

The hard fought game between the two teams went back and forth with St. John’s capturing the lead late in the third with a score of 10-8. Bellarmine (1-1), however, rallied back with a late second goal by Justin Norbaten. The Knights scored again to push their lead to 11-10 with only seconds left. Sophomore Bobby Fitton and Junior Trevor Michaelsen lead the team with four goals each. Tom Michaelsen added one goal and three assists for four team points. Junior Felix Forbes added another goal and assist and junior Jark Rosson contributed with one goal.

The game saw goalkeepers on both sides working overtime. Red Storm goalkeeper Dave Saccente recorded nine saves. The Knights goalkeeper J.C. Hutchens led the day with twelve saves.

The Storm, coming off a losing season, are off to a stuttering start in this new year. First-year head coach Jason Miller and the lacrosse team hope to notch their first victory in their home opener against Georgetown on March 3.
