The Merrimack College men's lacrosse team silenced Wagner Saturday afternoon at Hameline Field, as a strong outing from the defense and Henry Vogt lifted the visitors to an 8-6 triumph.
Score: Merrimack 8, Wagner 6
Records: Merrimack (6-5, 3-3 NEC) | Wagner (3-8, 1-5 NEC)
Vogt stood tall with 16 saves on the game to continue his exceptional sophomore campaign and the defense held the Seahawks to just 22 shots on goal on 40 attempts. Offensively, Christian Thomas came through in the clutch with a four-point effort led by his sixth hat trick of the year.
Tommy Rooney also had a strong effort offensively with a pair of goals and Trace Hogan and Sean Black also both had multi-point outings.
Riley Reed played tough all game and tied for the game-high with three ground balls and also caused a turnover.
Just in the program's second full season at the Division I level, the win guarantees that the Warriors will finish 2022 with a .500 record or better for the second consecutive year.
