The Alfred State lacrosse team traveled to Broome CC to complete their contest that was suspended last Wednesday due to lightning. Alfred trailed 6-1 at half and was never able to fully recover and fell 11-5.
The game resumed today with the Pioneers (3-7, 2-3 Region III West) trailing 6-1 at the start of the 3rd quarter. The blue & gold scored the first three goals of the quarter and cut the lead to 6-4 but never could get any closer. Broome led 8-4 at the end of three and never looked back.
Five different players found the back of the net for Alfred. Brandon Griffin (Corning East) finished with a goal and an assist while Keegan Phalen (East Aurora), Nate Spoor (Penn Yan), Bradley Murdoch (Auburn), and Dave Ford (Elmont/Sewanhaka) all scored once. Frank Martin (Whitney Point) and Jonathan Prendergast (Freeport) each picked up an assist.
