PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College men's lacrosse team fell to cross-town rival Brown, 11-6, on April 17 on the campus of Brown University in Providence, R.I. Jake Nolan (Wesport, Conn.) and Sean Wright (Silver Spring, Md.) each recorded two goals in the Friar effort.
The Friars found themselves trailing by four goals (5-1) after the first quarter, as Brown found the back of the cage five times on eight shots. The Friars attempted seven shots in the opening quarter, but were unable to capitalize.
Brown increased its lead to 7-1 with two goals early in the second quarter. Wright and Nolan were responsible for two of the next three goals heading into halftime, while Brown tacked on the other. Brown took an 8-3 lead into halftime.
In the third quarter, Providence cut the deficit to three goals (9-6). Nolan got things started with 10:55 on the clock to make the score 8-4. Neither team could muster a goal for the next eight minutes, until Brown converted with 2:59 remaining in the quarter. Providence answered with back-to-back goals from Andrew Barton (Timonium, Md.) and Ryan Shaw (East Hampton, N.Y.) within nine seconds of one another at 1:45 and 1:36. Brown halted the Friar run on a goal with 47-seconds left in the third to take a 10-6 advantage into the final quarter.
Brown scored the lone goal of the fourth quarter with 49-seconds remaining in the game to take the 11-6 win.
The Friars were dominant at the face-off "X", having earned victories in 16 of 21 opportunities. But despite earning possession of the ball at the "X", the Friars turned the ball over 27 times during the game, compared to 11 miscues by the Bears.
Providence returns to action on Saturday, April 21 against BIG EAST foe St. John's. The game will be played in Queens, N.Y. at 1:00 p.m.
