Frostburg State, ranked No. 16 in Division III, was too much for Wesley College on Thursday evening, rolling to an 18-5 men’s lacrosse victory over the Wolverines in Miller Stadium.
Sam Seibert contributed on all five goals for the Wolverines (3-6). The senior netted four of them, and assisted on the fifth with Nate Gemmato putting it away. Seibert also led Wesley with five ground balls and won four out of eight faceoffs. Eric Bohns and Nolan Vesey each gained a team-high three caused turnovers while goalie Cody Ireland made 13 saves.
The contest started with Nate Gemmato winning the opening faceoff and the Wolverines working the ball to Seibert at the top of zone. The senior charged left and fired a rocket, beating the Bobcats’ goalie top shelf to put Wesley ahead 1-0.
But the tally marked Wesley’s only first-quarter score as the Bobcats went on a 9-0 run stretching into the second frame. Gemmato and Seibert scored back-to-back goals to cut the lead to 9-3, but the Frostburg offense netted four more before halftime to take a 13-3 lead into the break.
