The Lords traveled to Meadville, Pa. on Sunday to match up against Allegheny College. After getting off to a slow start in the first half, the Lords rallied, going into halftime up 5-1. The second half saw the Lords take a 10-2 lead into the fourth quarter. Kenyon ended up winning 13-4.
Goalie David Metzger ’21 was happy with the win, but believes his team needs to clean up their mistakes. “We excelled later in the game, but we need to improve on being mentally engaged for all 60 minutes if we hope to be crowned NCAC champions,” he said.
The Lords will have some time to perfect their game before the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) Championship game on Saturday, May 1, when they will face Oberlin College. The championship game will take place at either Ohio Wesleyan University or Denison University.
