St. Mary's Becraft Nodded for Goal That Sunk Salisbury

from press release

Following his heroics of last Friday, sophomore midfielder Chris Becraft (Rockville, Md./Good Counsel) was named the Capital Athletic Conference Men's Lacrosse Player-of-the-Week as announced by the conference commissioner, Tom Byrnes, Monday afternoon.  Becraft garnered the weekly honor for the week ending April 12.

The Seahawks (7-5, 5-2 CAC) garnered the No. 2 seed in the CAC Tournament and their first win against the 14-time defending conference champion Salisbury in 32 years when Becraft netted the game-winner at :00.2 seconds as St. Mary's posted an 11-10 victory for the Sea Gulls' second consecutive loss.

St. Mary's last win against the Sea Gulls came on April 5, 1977 with a 13-12 overtime decision at home.  For Salisbury, it was the first time since 2002 that the Sea Gulls have posted back-to-back losses as well as the first time in program history that SU has notched consecutive conference losses. 

Becraft started the week with two goals and an assist in the Seahawks' 17-2 rout of Hood.

The 6-0 attackman is second on the team in scoring with 25 points on 18 goals and seven assists.  He has two game-winning goals, three man-up goals, and one man-down goal.

With a first-round bye in the CAC Tournament, St. Mary's will host No. 3 seed Salisbury on Thursday, April 16 at Seahawk Stadium in CAC semifinal action at 4:00.  Salisbury was a 14-5 winner over No. 6 seed University of Mary Washington Monday afternoon in first round play.
