The Western Connecticut State University men’s lacrosse team is ready for their first home game this season against Scranton University. They are looking to turn their season around after losing to Vassar and Kean the first two games of the season.
Western has lost by a margin of 31 points in their first two games. A lose to Vassar 19-7 and Kean 22-3. Western is looking to get back on track offensively to catch-up to these high scoring teams.
Scranton already has five games under their belt with a 4-1 record. Scranton has scored 46 goals and has only let up 32 goals. Western has let up 41 goals in only two games which doesn’t look good to what Scranton has done defensively.
Nate Wilson is the leading scorer for Western with two goals. But he is also leading the team in turnovers with 14. The turnover battle is an important part of the game which needs to be low in order for Western to win.
Western is hoping to play better this week to get a little winning streak going. The game will be played on the Westside Campus at Western Connecticut State University at 12:00 p.m.
