ST. MARY'S, Md. – The Southern Virginia University men's lacrosse team improved to 2-0 in the Capital Athletic Conference with an 18-15 Capital Athletic Conference win over St. Mary's College of Maryland on Saturday.

After falling behind in the first quarter with only a pair of goals, the Knights (4-3, 2-0 CAC) bounced back with seven goal quarters to take a 16-11 lead heading into the fourth.

Although the Seahawks (0-8, 0-1 CAC) outscored the Knights in the final period, they were unable to overcome the deficit.

Anthony Good started off the scoring for the Knights, landing a goal from a Shawn Lamb assist. Spencer Tunick scored the only other Southern Virginia goal in the first period.

After the Seahawks went up 8-3 with 11:44 in the second period, the Knights went on a six-goal run to take a halftime lead. Good and Casey Rich each had three goals in the period, with Lamb adding one.

Seven more Southern Virginia shots found the back of the net in the third quarter, and the final two goals of the game went the way of the Knights.

Good finished with a career-high eight goals. Rich added five and two assists, while Lamb had two goals and five assists. Tunick finished with a pair, and Logan Lund added his first goal of the season.
