Scots Record Most Lopsided Victory Since 2002, 24-0 Over DePauw
The College of Wooster men's lacrosse team put together its most decisive win in more than a decade, cruising past DePauw University 24-0 during the teams' first North Coast Athletic Conference tilt, played Saturday in Greencastle, Ind.
The 24-point margin of victory was the largest for Wooster (6-3, 2-1 NCAC) since dominating Washington & Jefferson College 28-1 on April 20, 2002, while it was the Fighting Scots fifth shutout overall and first since the 2010 season opener against Milwaukee School of Engineering (22-0).
Wooster controlled the action right from the outset against DePauw (0-9, 0-3 NCAC), a first-year program still in search of its first victory. The Scots connected on six goals in the first quarter, four coming from the stick of Tom Herold.
Five more tallies came in the third period, highlighted by the first career goal for defender Sean Hohan during a man-down situation, and Wooster poured it on with a nine-goal fourth, featuring the first career scores for John Michael Bogusz, Seth Brown, Niall Cronin, Nick Halle, Taylor Norton, and Trevor Shoemaker.
Next up for Wooster is another Indiana opponent, as Trine University will visit on Tuesday night.
