CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Behind sophomore Brent Noseworthy's six goals and senior Ian King's four assists, both of which tied school records, the University of Michigan men's lacrosse team defeated the Cleveland State Vikings, 13-8, Saturday (Feb. 4) inside a sold-out Krenzler Dome.
The Vikings, playing in their first-ever NCAA contest, took the early lead at the 3:23 mark of the contest on a score by Nick Wendel. The Wolverines then went on a 6-0 run that spanned two quarters of action, featuring a pair of goals from senior Mikie Schlosser and Noseworthy, as well as markers from freshman Avery Myers and junior Chase Young.
The Vikings then answered back with a 3-0 run of their own to make it 6-4 with less than five minutes to go in the second stanza. A tally at the 4:27 mark of the quarter by Noseworthy from King made it 7-4 as the matchup went into the half.
Coming out the intermission, the Wolverines ran off three straight goals. Beginning at the 11:37 mark, Schlosser netted his third of the night, while junior Patrick Tracy followed a minute later to make the score 9-4. Noseworthy started off his big second half with a marker at the 9:56 portion of the third off a feed from fellow attackman Rocco Sutherland to stretch the lead to 10-5.
Following a Viking goal, the Wolverines rattled off three straight, two courtesy of Noseworthy, to extend the U-M advantage to 13-6. CSU then tacked on two late goals to bring the tally to its final resting place.
Junior/sophomore Tommy Heidt, playing in the second game of career and his first start, made 14 saves in goal, and was relieved by senior Robbie Zonino late in the fourth quarter. Heidt as well as junior Michael McDonnell excelled at the dot going 15-of-22, while sophomore longstick midfielder Nick DeCaprio collected five ground balls and caused a turnover.
U-M will host Lafayette for their first regular-season home game on Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. at Oosterbaan Field House.
