MIDDLETOWN, Conn. - The Wesleyan University men's lacrosse team scored 12 straight goals to rally from a 4-1 deficit to take a 13-5 win over Bowdoin College in a NESCAC contest on Saturday afternoon. The Cardinals stand at 4-2 (2-0 NESCAC) while the Polar Bears dip to 4-3 (1-2).
Bowdoin stormed out of the gate, as Adam Tracy scored the Polar Bears' first three goals and Kevin Raymond capped the run to give the visitors a 4-1 edge with 9:19 to go in the second quarter. The Cardinals closed the half on a 3-0 run, as a Lonny Blumenthal goal deadlocked the contest heading into intermission.
Grayson Connors scored consecutive goals to open the second period and spark a 6-0 third quarter for the Cardinals. Connors, who finished with a game-high five goals, scored twice more in the fourth quarter to up Wesleyan's lead to 13-4 with under five minutes to play.
Alex Gluck (five saves, nine goals) and Gordon Convery (eight saves, four goals) split time in net for Bowdoin. Wesleyan's Mike Borrero stopped 11 shots (four goals) before giving way to Colin Campbell (one goal) in the final 4:28.
Bowdoin will return to action on April 2 when they travel to Exeter, New Hampshire to play Springfield College.
