“First and foremost, all the credit in the world for Coach [Kevin] Warne, his staff and his players, “head coach Bill Tierney said. “They brought it to us. Your goalkeeper was fabulous and they fought for 60 minutes. It was a great lacrosse defensive game with two goalkeepers who both played well. Our boys found a way to win a slow game today , Our defense played well and Trevor was obviously great and had a big goal to start the fourth quarter for us, but in the end it was thanks to Georgetown for the way they came out today, we haven’t had a close relationship with them yet them during, and you could tell that their children wanted it. “
