Ashland, OR- The SOU Men's Lacrosse Team hosted the Wildcats from Central Washington on Sunday in Raider Stadium.   The Raiders won the contest 9-8 by shutting out CWU in the 4th quarter while scoring 5 times for a thrilling come from behind victory. 

Central Washington looked like the team that hadn't played the night before as SOU started out very sluggish and sloppy.  SOU's freshman Goalie #24 Cameron Saecho really kept the Raiders in the game as he recorded 8 first half saves. Sophomore #94 Connor Mason scored the Raiders first two goals of the game folowed by a career first goal for Sophomore #7 Jacob Kritzer.  The Raiders found themselves down 6-4 at the end of the first half. 

The third qt. belonged to the Wildcats as they shut out the Raiders offense and put in two more goals to lead 8-4 going into the final quarter. 

SOU showed a ton of heart and character not giving up.  Senior #29 Spencer Pregal led the comeback for the Raiders scoring 3 of the next 4 goals with the last one tying the game 8-8.  Pregal also assisted Freshman #11 Spencer Burch for his 2nd goal of the game which pulled the Raiders to within 1 goal.    Sophomore #2 Auberon Dones scored the game winner on an assist from #94 Mason with exactly two minutes left in the game. 

The Raiders defense stepped up in the 4th quarter shutting out the Wildcats by causing 4 turnovers and out ground balling CWU in the 4th. 

Game ball went to Goalie #24 Cameron Saecho who made 5 4th quarter saves including one at the last second to seal the victory for the Raiders.

With 13 of the 15 players dressed for this game being under-classmen the future looks bright for the Raiders as long as they can continue to learn how to play together and improve.
