March 23 - BETHANY, W.Va. – The Bethany College men’s lacrosse team could not contain a consistent King’s (Pa.) College attack, which scored four goals in each quarter en route to taking a 16-2 victory over the Bison Saturday afternoon.
The Monarchs (5-1) posted their first goal with 1:33 off the clock and added three more by the end of the first quarter. The lead could have been much larger, but BC junior goalie C.J. Studnicky (Severna Park, Md.) turned aside 11 King’s shots in the initial period. The visitors continued to control the tempo of the game in the second quarter, tacking on four more goals to run its lead up to 8-0 at intermission.
Bethany (2-5) scored its first goal around the midway point of the third quarter when senior Kyle Arrington (Jackson Twp., Ohio/Jackson) scored off a nice feed from freshman Kyle Dashiell (Parsonsburg, Md./Wicomico). Arrington now has a goal in all six games he’s played this season and has a team-best 11 goals, while Dashiell recorded his second assist of the year.
King’s closed the scoring in the third with a late goal to take a 12-1 lead and after the Monarchs fired in the first score of the fourth period, Bethany registered its second goal. This time it was Arrington flipping a pass from behind the net to sophomore Vince Frammartino (right - Sterling, Va./Potomac Falls), who finished for his third goal of the season. The Monarchs would complete the scoring with three more goals to build the final margin.
Studnicky, who leads Division III in saves per game and has the single-game high for saves in a game this season, made 29 stops in Saturday’s tilt. It’s the fifth time this year he’s made 20 or more saves in a game. A pair of Bison finished the afternoon with five ground balls to lead the team, including junior Dylan Radwanski (Toronto, Ohio) and sophomore Trey Moore (Dublin, Ohio/Dublin Scioto).
The Bison will be on the road for their next two games, starting Wednesday with a match-up at Mount Union, scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
