The Keene State College men’s lacrosse team topped the University of Massachusetts Boston Beacons by a score of 22-3 on Saturday, April 15 to extend their win streak to five games.

The Owls were led by Rob Hart and Hunter Arnold, who each tallied three goals in the rout of the Beacons. Hart and Arnold weren’t alone, however, as 13 other Owls found their way onto the scoreboard, including Tyler Reilly who started the scoring with just over ten minutes remaining in the first quarter. KSC would go on to put up eight unanswered goals before UMass Boston got on the board.

The first Beacons goal came from Kroy Arnold, who factored into every point that UMass Boston scored on the day.

Arnold added two assists later in the game. His teammate Calvin Lee also tallied a goal and an assist, but the Beacons’ effort was no match for the Owls’ offense.

Following Arnold’s goal, the Owls went on to score four more, pushing the score to 12-1.

Just a couple minutes before halftime, UMass Boston’s Eric Wollrath got onto the board after receiving a pass from Arnold. The teams entered the half with the Owls on top 12-2.

In the third quarter, the Owls added on three more goals, one each from Jake Genest, Charles Katz and Alex Faubert. Faubert, Bobby Carey and Bryan Rotatori all scored two goals along the way.

In the fourth quarter, the Owls dominated the Beacons, scoring seven goals to UMass Boston’s one. The final goal of the game came from Carey, who was fed a pass from Curt Serafini to beat UMass Boston’s goalie, making the score 22-3.

On the back end for KSC, four players made their way into the game. Matt Howe, J.J. Tinney, Jeff Bernard and Cameron Eddy all played several minutes for the Owls, but Howe earned the win as he exited the game when the score was 8-3. He finished the day with  three shots against and one save.

Bernard and Eddy also made one save in the win.

KSC hosts Plymouth State University on Wednesday, April 19 in a Little East Conference matchup and will look to earn their sixth straight victory.
