Men’s Lacrosse

Sacred Heart 15, Dartmouth 8

Hanover — Dartmouth lost to visiting Sacred Heart on Saturday at Scully-Field. The Big Green is 0-2 this season and 1-8 outside Ivy League play during the past two campaigns.

Jack Korzelius scored four goals, Wiley Osborne had three tallies and Cameron Nolting struck once for the hosts, who had a lone assist, by Ben Martin. The Big Green started three freshmen, including goaltender Christopher George (12 saves), and two sophomores. Six of its 14 substitutes were freshmen.

Dartmouth opened the scoring during the second minute, but never again led or was in a tie. The hosts were scoreless with six man advantages and the Pioneers were 2 of 9 during an aggressive game. The Big Green committed 23 turnovers while forcing 15 and had six faceoff violations. Ground balls, faceoffs, clears and shots were relatively even.

“Things got chippy and we focused more on that than on what we needed to do,” said third-year coach Brendan Callahan, whose team hosts Vermont (3-1) on Tuesday. Sacred Heart “is a tough, hard-nosed team and they got us out of our game. Today was the first time a lot of our guys had been in something like that and you could tell they were gripping their sticks a little too hard. It’s great experience to have for the upcoming games, however.”

Callahan, who cut seven players and had three others quit the team shortly before this season, was verbally heckled throughout the contest by a group of about two dozen male students sitting behind the home bench. It included some of his former competitors. One held a sign reading “We Want Towers,” a reference to Callahan’s predecessor, Andy Towers, who resigned in 2014. Callahan is 6-23 at Dartmouth.
