Emmitsburg, Md. (February 26, 2017) – The Mount St. Mary's men's lacrosse team dropped a 14-7 decision at the hands of Furman on Sunday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium.

Lou Yovino led the way for the Paladins with a game-high three goals, while William Holcomb and David Williamson added a pair of goals apiece. Jonah Moore registered four points on a goal and three assists. Hil Blaze went 17-for-25 on faceoffs and also scored his first goal of the season on the team's opening possession.

Bubba Johnson tallied two goals to pace the Mount, and five other Mountaineers scored a goal each, including rookies Keaton Mitchell and Aaron Weisel, who registered the first tallies of their collegiate careers.

After a pair of goals from Furman to open the contest, the Mount got on the board on a man-up opportunity as Cameron Stone found Chris DiPretoro to cut the deficit to 2-1.

The Paladins responded with the next pair of scores, but the Mount answered back as Johnson and Austin Short tallied consecutive goals to once again bring the Mount within a score, 4-3, with just over a minute remaining in the first.

Yovino scored his first of three goals with just 12 seconds showing on the clock, sending Furman into the second with a 5-3 advantage.

The Furman defense stymied the Mountaineers in the second, holding them scoreless while five different Paladins tallied a goal apiece in the period to pad their lead to 10-3 at the halftime break.

Holcomb and Johnson traded goals early in the third frame, before Furman scored the final three goals of the quarter to extend the advantage to 14-4.

After Brenden McCarthy opened the scoring in the fourth, Weisel got on the board at the 9:53 mark for his first career goal. Mitchell followed just over four minutes later with his first career tally, but the Paladins closed out the 14-7 victory to grab their first win of the season, improving to 1-4.

The Mount drops to 0-4 following the loss, and is back in action on March 11 for the first road test of the season at Bellarmine at noon.
