HARROGATE, Tenn. -- Lincoln Memorial pulled away from visiting Catawba in the second half to post an 11-8 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at the LMU Lacrosse Complex. The Railsplitters improve to 9-1 overall and 3-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 4-5 and 2-2.

Catawba fell behind 3-0 after a quarter then put home six in the second period to go up 6-5. Cole Fanzo’s second gave the Indians that lead, but LMU tied the score with just 12 second left in the half on a goal from Kairos Bodley.

The Railsplitters used that momentum to score the opening four goals of the second half. Adam Golia had two of those goals as LMU went up 10-6. Justin Warnock pulled the Indians within 10-7 on his goal late in the period, but that was as close as Catawba could get as each team managed just one goal in the fourth quarter.

Dalton Cook picked up a pair of goals with two assists for Catawba. Fanzo added his two goals with Joe Barber scoring a goal and helping on another. Kevin Geiger had 13 saves in the pipes.

Dylan Neisler posted three goals for LMU. Billy Kopsky had two goals and three assists, while Golia had two goals and two assists. Robert Tucker also found the net twice. Michael Kessler recorded a dozen saves.

Catawba is set to host Mars Hill next Saturday at 3 pm.
