Sierra Nevada College lacrosse | Eagles rout Santa Rosa
October 15, 2014
INCLINE VILLAGE — The Sierra Nevada College lacrosse team hosted Santa Rosa Junior College this past Saturday and came up with a 19-6 victory.
Sierra Nevada College (SNC) dominated its inaugural season last spring by going 7-0. SNC has continued that winning streak by starting fall ball 4-0, including the win over Santa Rosa.
"It was a great game," said junior Jordan Kousky. "They were a very physical team, which made it tough but fun."
The Eagles took an early lead at the end of the first quarter and led Santa Rosa 8-1 after the first 15 minutes of play. SNC's leading scorers for the day were Kyle Rockwell and Luke Durkin, who both had hat tricks during the game. Durkin, a sophomore, had a breakout day, displaying his ability with stick control and accuracy around the cage.
"The team played well," said SNC head coach Bruce Meierdiercks. "I was happy with the outcome and how they played."
Although the Eagles dominated the first quarter against Santa Rosa, they had a hard time keeping the streak through the second quarter. Santa Rosa stepped up and held SNC to only four goals in the second quarter, while scoring two against SNC's starting goalie Robert O'Hare. All three of SNC's goalies played Saturday and it was Austin Farina's first game in the cage.
