Catholic Edged By Arcadia, 13-10

WASHINGTON - The Catholic University of America men's lacrosse team was edged by Arcadia on Saturday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium as the Knights outscored the Cards, 13-10.

Catholic scored first in the game and lead 2-1 after two early goals by senior Bennett Bradley but Arcadia rallied with four-straight goals to take a lead they would not surrender.

Bradley, who finished with a game-high five points on five goals, scored with 15 seconds left in the first and again 1:31 into the second to make it a one-score game but again the Knight had an answer with back-to-back scores of their own.

Bradley continued to attack and go one back with 6:33 to play and classmate Samuel Montgomery added one with 46 seconds left to make it 8-6 at the half.

Arcadia was able to control the third however with three goals to take an 11-6 lead.

Catholic got three back in the fourth, two by senior Liam Clancy and one from rookie Owen Smith as it was a three-goal game with 5:34 left.

Arcadia would let the Cards get no closer however as they got one back before sophomore Mark Tocchio's score with eight seconds left.

Arcadia won the groundball battle, 42-32, and took 18 of 27 faceoffs.

Catholic will look to get back on the winning track this coming Wednesday when they host Marymount at 6 p.m.
