WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel put together a six-goal second quarter en route to a 13-7 victory over Swarthmore in Centennial Conference (CC) men's lacrosse action on Wednesday.
Pat Woglom (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) and Zach Monzo (Collegeville, Pa./Spring-Ford) scored four goals apiece to lead the Green Terror (4-9, 1-4 CC), who finished the game with a 48-28 advantage in shots.
Ian Lukaszewicz led the Garnet (3-7, 2-2 CC) with two goals and an assist.
Tied at 1-all after Monzo and Wes Marcik traded tallies in the first quarter, Jason Lawrence (Fallston, Md./Fallston) scored 57 seconds into the second quarter to give McDaniel the lead for good.
Woglom pushed the lead to 3-1 just 14 seconds later before Lukaszewicz cut the deficit to one at the 12:39 mark.

Monzo tallies twice and Woglom added one goal during the run. Lawrence also had one of his two assists.
After Lukaszewicz cut the deficit to 7-3 on a close-range shot with 2:02 to play, the Green Terror was flagged for an unreleasable unsportsmanlike penalty that gave the ball to Swarthmore.
