Arlington, Va. – Marymount University's men's lacrosse team won its fifth-straight game to open the 2014 campaign with a decisive 11-2 victory over visiting Hood on Saturday. The Saints 5-0 start ties the program record set in 2001.
Garrett Nealon and Chad Niergarth both led the Saints with three goals each while Matt Justice added a pair. Connor Kellogg, Nico Burns and Jimmy Wendell each posted a lone goal for the Blue and White.
Marymount opened the game on a 4-0 run over the first 10 minutes of action and never looked back. Hood (0-2) managed just one goal in the first period and was shutout until late in the fourth. The Saints blanked the Blazers for 40 minutes of action spanning four different quarters.
Brett Humphries and Tai Foster both had goals for Hood.
Marymount returns to action on Wednesday as it faces Kean in Charlotte, N.C., over spring break.
