Lions Too Much for Bobcats

The Lees-McRae Bobcats lacrosse team hosted regional rival Mars Hill College Saturday afternoon, falling 24-4 to the mighty Lions in non-conference action.

After Kevin Woods opened the scoring just 31 seconds in with a man up goal, Landon Yong responded for the Bobcats at 12:14 of the first quarter with his first collegiate goal. Woods regained the lead for the Lions at 10:48, igniting an 8-0 run allowing the visitors to gain full control of the contest.

Woods led the Lions with a game high four goals while David Hodgins all scorers with seven points, scoring three and setting up four. Christian McLean and Brad Campbell and Danny Farmer also registered hat tricks for Mars Hill while eight others chipped in singles.

Jason Schafhauser scored his team leading 13th goal of the season, while Neil Sleight scored his ninth, tying his last season's output. Young and Kyle Ficken round out the scoring for the Bobcats, with Ficken, (pictured top left), drawing an assist on Young's goal for his second straight multi point game.

The Bobcats will resume non-conference action Wednesday afternoon when they travel to Greensboro College for a 3:30pm start.
