For the second-straight season, the New England College men’s lacrosse team captured the Northeast Athletic Conference (NAC), defeating Castleton in tournament final this afternoon, 12-3.

New England’s Matt Richard led all scorers with five points on three goals and two assists, while Daniel Medvetz concluded the contest with a trio of assists one goal.

The Pilgrims, who led the Spartans 4-2 at the break, pushed ahead for good with a six-goal third quarter, which provided the hosts with a commanding 10-2 lead. Richard and Sean Largay would net New England’s final goals in the fourth quarter to secure the team’s second-straight conference crown.

Similar to last season, the Pilgrims secured an automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Division III Tournament, which will commence next week. The pairings for this year’s tournament will be announced tomorrow evening at 9:00 p.m.
