Bulldogs blow lead, match at UDC
WASHINGTON — A five-goal lead in the second quarter wasn’t enough to sustain the Barton men’s lacrosse team to its first victory of the season as host University of District of Columbia rallied to tie the score before pulling out a 17-16 overtime victory.
The Bulldogs, now 0-2, charged to a 3-0 lead on unassisted goals by Jake Copio, B.J. Wilson and Alexander Czibur, before going up 6-0 on Mason Cheney’s unassisted goal seconds into the second quarter. But the Firebirds (1-1) fought back, scoring four straight goals in the fourth quarter to take a 16-15 lead with 3:41 left to play.
However, Barton’s Mark Crawford got the equalizer a little more than a minute later, sending the match to overtime.
However, the extra session lasted just 49 seconds as UDC’s Zander Torres found the net for his fourth goal and the sudden victory.
Crawford and Copio each scored four goals for Barton, which held a 49-31 advantage in shots. Bulldogs sophomore Trevor Witholt came up with seven saves in goal.
