D3 Lacrosse: Wesleyan Wins First-Ever NCAA Championship

fP0ILBHzBy NoontimeSports.com (@NoontimeSports) 

For the first-time in school history, the Wesleyan University men’s lacrosse team captured the national crown, defeating Salisbury University, 8-6, on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium in the 2018 NCAA Division III championship.

Harry Stanton capped his impressive four-year career with the Red and Black by netting a pair of goals, while setting-up his team’s final marker late in the third quarter, which provided Wesleyan with an 8-4 lead heading into the final session.

Wesleyan’s defense limited Salisbury to just a pair of goals during the final 15 minutes, while Otto Bohan halted the rally with his final save with 13 seconds remaining.

Bohan concluded the contest with 11 stops – he also ended the season with an impressive 17-2 record between the pipes.

The Cardinals secured a 4-0 lead to begin the game, thanks to goals from Stanton and Carter Hawthorne before Salisbury halted the short spurt with a Zach Pompea strike with two seconds remaining. Salisbury would close the gap with back-to-back markers in the second quarter from Corey Gwin before Stanton netted his final goal with 3:07 remaining in the stanza to provide Wesleyan with a 5-3 lead at the break.

Salisbury would again pull within one goal early in the third as Josh Melton buried a feed from Pierre Armstrong before Taylor Ghesquiere jumpstarted a three-goal run with 8:52 remaining in the session that helped the Cardinals enter the final stanza with an 8-4 advantage.

Wesleyan, which concludes its season at 19-3 overall, scored five impressive postseason wins this month, including a pair of victories against RIT and Tufts University to secure a match-up with the Sea Gulls. Wesleyan attempted to reach the finals last season, but saw their run conclude against the Tigers of RIT.
