The KSU lacrosse team went 1-1 over the weekend as they lost to Georgia on Saturday, 19-4, but rebounded and stomped Georgia College and State University, 13-3 on Sunday. “It was great to see the team respond so well after a loss,” said team vice president and public relations director Michael “Red” McCabe. The Owls started the game against the Bobcats by scoring three goals. The strong play on offense was led by J.D. Douthit. At the end of the first quarter, Douthit had one goal and two assists as the Owls led 4-1 at the end of the first quarter. The onslaught of the Owls’ offensive pressure was relentless.

The Bobcats played on their heels the entire first half as KSU managed to score five additional goals in the second quarter to make the halftime score 9-2.

With a comfortable lead, the Owls came out in the second half and played a strong defensive-minded strategy to come away with the victory.

The Owls’ offensive threat was led by Douthit, Ian Lehrer and Tim Minick. All were able to dash through the tough defense of GCSU to lead KSU to a lopsided victory. Douthit ended the game with three goals and five assists.

When GCSU was able to break out of their zone, the Owls’ goaltender tandem of Wes Bass or Kyle Hansen was there to stop the threat.

The lacrosse team will match up against SELC division rivals in their next four games. All games will be played on the road against The Citadel, Coastal Carolina, Emory and Eckerd.

The next home game for the Owls [4-1] will be against Carleton College on March 16 at 3 p.m.
