Peter Troup scored four goals and Jared Mills and Jake Bergey each scored three times to help Salisbury State rout Washington College, 16-5, yesterday in men's lacrosse at Salisbury.
The Sea Gulls' win was the seventh straight over the Shoremen in regular-season play, but Washington College still leads the overall series, 16-10.
Ahead 5-3 after one quarter, the Sea Gulls (10-1) broke away by scoring nine of the next 10 goals over the second and third periods to build a 12-3 lead. Bergey and Troup combined for four goals and two assists over that span.
The Shoremen (10-3) were held to just one goal in the middle periods, that coming from John Fuller at the 11: 02 mark of the third quarter. Washington converted on only two of 12 extra-man opportunities.
Senior goalkeeper Anthony Tufano made a season-high 16 saves for Salisbury, who had 10 players who scored at least one point.
"In the last six weeks this team has gotten a lot better," Salisbury State coach Jim Berkman said. "And that's not just one or two guys, that's a lot of guys."
