Men’s Lacrosse Defeated by Augustana 20-0
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
ROCK ISLAND, IL - Calvin dropped a 20-0 decision to Augustana College Wednesday night. Calvin is now 1-6 on the year.
Calvin trailed 7-0 through one period of play but dug in to allow just one goal in the second quarter to trail 8-0 at halftime.
An undermanned Calvin squad then allowed 12 second half goals. Junior Casey Harless (DeWitt/DeWitt HS) had 10 ground balls for the Knights and won five faceoffs.
“Even though we were out-manned in extremely cold conditions, we fought hard and didn’t quit,” said Calvin head coach Joel Kamstra. “In particular, I thought Jon Ptashnik, Tyler DeKryger and Adam Wiersma all played great.”
Calvin will now travel to the Chicago area and will play Wheaton’s club team on Friday night. Because the game will be against a non varsity team, the result will not count on Calvin’s won-loss record.
