Scots Dropped By Tigers

Alma, Mich. – The Alma College men's lacrosse team dropped one, 13-8, to DePauw University (IN) on Saturday (Mar. 23) at Bahlke Field. With the loss, the Scots are 4-6 on the season while the Tigers improve to 2-5. 

How It Happened

  • Alma found themselves in a 3-0 hole until junior midfielder Trevor Bailey (Sault Ste. Marie, ich. / Sault Area) netted one with a just over three minutes remaining in the first period. 
  • Back down three early in the second, with a man up advantage, senior midfielder Jared Nycz (Buffalo, N.Y. / Iroquois) scored. The goal was Nycz's 120th of his career making him the program's all-time leading scorer. Freshman attacker Timothy Gearig (Vicksburg, Mich. / Vicksburg) scored late in the half as the Scots found themselves down by four heading to the second half. 
  • A Gearig goal was sandwiched in between two Tiger goals to start the third quarter. The Scots would then go a 3-0 run to close out the period with a goal by junior attacker Chase Hunyadi  and back-to-back scores by junior attacker Connor Alley (Powell, Ohio / Worthington Kilbourne). Heading into the final quarter, Alma trailed by two. 
  • DePauw would answer the Scots' run with a 3-0 run of their own to start the quarter to put the game away. Hunyadi would add the final goal of the game for Alma with just over five minutes remaining. 

Notables 

  • Nycz led the team with a four-point day. The senior is the program's record holder for all-time goals, assists and points. 
  • Senior goalie Cameron Stelljes (Okemos, Mich. / Okemos) made 16 saves in net. He now has 411 career saves. 
  • Alley and Bailey extended their season-long goal streaks to 10.
