Eagles End Road Trip With 16-9 Win At Ferrum


Dave Darling netted four goals and dealt out two assists as the Eagles topped the Ferrum College Panthers. Darling has eight goals and 13 assists this season.

FERRUM, Va.--Eastern Men's Lacrosse wrapped up its five-game road swing with a 16-9 win over Ferrum College on Saturday and improved to 4-1 this season.

Eastern's Dave Darling scored a game-high four goals and also dealt out two assists. Grant Ferguson and Eric Waibel each added three goals and an assist. Andrew Travers and Kyle Killam each scored twice. Freshmen Tim Lamb and Jamar Hall also added a goal.

Eastern's Pat Groschan recorded 10 saves in the win. Matt Lee won 10-of-14 faceoffs.

After committing a season-high nine penalties at Christopher Newport on Thursday, the Eagles went penalty free on Saturday. Ferrum committed three penalties and the scored on two of those extra man opportunities.

The Eagles, who probably weren't expecting to have to help shovel snow on their spring break, got an extra warmup session in this morning when they helped clear off  several inches of snow from the Virginia school's field.

The Eagles capitalized early, scoring 1:02 into the game with a goal from Andrew Travers. Eastern rattled off four straight goals before Ferrum took to the scoreboard with 3:51 to play in the first.

Grant Ferguson scored his second goal of the game with 35 seconds left in the quarter, putting Eastern up 5-1. Over the entirety of the second quarter and 11 minutes of the third quarter, Ferrum went on a 5-2 scoring run. With 2:22 to play in the third quarter, Eastern's lead was down to 7-6.

The Eagles responded with four straight goals to close out the third and open the fourth quarter and then put up another four-goal stretch in the middle of the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.

Eastern has its home opener on Friday at 3:30 p.m. against Colorado College.
