Host Wittenberg University jumped out to an 8-3 halftime lead on Wednesday evening, en route to a 14-6 win over the Mount. The Lions, who drop to 4-5 overall this season, will host a Midwest Lacrosse Conference game on April 6 against Aurora University. The Mount has a 2-1 record in the conference.

The Tigers scored the first three goals in the game, while Mount junior Ryan Gallagher (Chicago, IL/St. Rita) broke through with 1:28 showing on the first quarter clock to ge the Lions on the scoreboard and cut the deficit to 3-1. Wittenberg, however, would tally five unanswered goals at that point, to lead 8-1, while the Lions would get the last two goals of the first half, with scores from Patrick McClanahan (Cincinnati, OH/Madeira) and Will McClanahan (Cincinnati, OH/Madeira).

Wittenberg would go on a three-goal scoring spree in the second half, to move out to an 11-1 lead. Gallagher added two second half goals, and teammate Peter Thompson (Homewood, IL/Homewood-Flossmoor) would close the scoring in the game. The Tigers out-shot the Lions, 49-27 in the game, including 34-16 in shots on goal. Wittenberg held a 20-7 edge in shots in the first half as they built their five-goal advantage at the intermission.

Gallagher led the Mount with three goals while goalie Joe Illencik (Youngstown, OH/Cardinal Mooney) had 20 saves in the game.
