Men’s Lacrosse picks up first ODAC win

The men’s lacrosse team picked up its first ODAC win of the year against Ferrum College. The 15-6 victory was the first ODAC win since April 14, 2018 when Guilford beat Randolph College 22-6. The Quakers have won two straight games as they beat Greensboro College and Ferrum. Junior midfielder Brennan Sweeney scored four goals and dished out four assists in the game. Senior attacker/midfielder Joe Egglestone added four goals on four shots in the victory.

Guilford holds a 7-6 overall record and is 1-5 in conference play. Brennan Sweeney leads the team with a career-high 31 goals and has 22 assists. Junior attacker Connor Sweeney trails him with 29 goals and 19 assists, both second best on the team. Senior attacker Zach Berkowitz has added 18 goals and 13 assists and junior attacker Derek Zacatenco has put 16 into the back of the net. The Quakers have had junior Jack Rogers in net for the season and he has allowed an average 11.96 goals per game. He is third in the ODAC with 160 saves.

Guilford sits outside an ODAC playoff position with four games remaining. The Quakers are in ninth place and only the top six teams make the playoffs.

The next two games are important as they are against Bridgewater College and Virginia Wesleyan University. Bridgewater is in eighth place with a 2-4 conference record and Virginia Wesleyan is tied for sixth with a 3-3 record.

The last time Guilford made the ODAC Tournament was in the 2015-16 season when they got knocked out in the ODAC Quarterfinals to Hampden-Sydney College.
