Late Rally by Men's Lacrosse Gives Archbell First Career Victory

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Bowdoin College men's lacrosse team gave first-year coach Jason Archbell his first career win as head coach in a 9-6 victory over St. Lawrence in a game played at Georgetown University on Wednesday night.

19th-ranked Bowdoin moves to 1-1 this season while St. Lawrence falls to 2-2.

Franklin Reis had a goal and two assists for the Polar Bears while Dan Hanley, Griffin Cardew and Tyler Williams had two goals each in the victory. Christopher Williamson had seven saves in the win for Bowdoin.

Up 4-3 at halftime, Bowdoin found themselves down 6-4 after three periods. The Polar Bears were able to rally, however, to score the final five goals of the contest - including a back-breaking goal in the fourth quarter from Billy Bergner off a clean faceoff win by Rob Talcott and feed from Will Wise- to clinch the victory.

Bowdoin will return to action against NESCAC foe Amherst on Saturday at Brown University. Complete stats will be posted from this game when available.
