Salisbury Cruises By Christopher Newport Plus Loyola Sinks Navy And Other Scores
Thanks to ten seniors taking their extra year of eligibility the Salisbury men’s lacrosse team was top ranked in all of the preseason polls. The Gulls lost their first game of the season 10-8 at Lynchburg. It should be noted they were without a couple key contributors including Brett Malamphy (AA FOGO) due to Covid protocols and injuries. Since that game Salisbury has been on a mission to reestablish their dominance. The latest team to feel that was fifth ranked Christopher Newport. The Captains (6-2) fell 25-12 at Sea Gull Stadium to the second ranked Sea Gulls.
Jarrett Bromwell finished with seven goals and two assists including a couple amazing individual efforts. The attack team of Griffin Moroney, Josh Melton and Cross Ferrara combined for 10 goals and 10 assists. Only 13 of Salisbury’s 45 shots weren’t goals or saves. St Mary’s College comes to Salisbury for a Wednesday 4pm start before the rematch between these two teams on March 14th at CNU.
