UNF lacrosse will have to fix mistakes, and do it quickly, as it takes to the road for the first time this season over the upcoming weekend.


The team continued its struggles as it suffered its worst loss of the young season Feb. 11.


Savannah College of Art and Design came to UNF and had its way with the Ospreys, leaving with a dominant 22-1 win. The Bees had nine players score goals, including six by attacker George McManus. Meanwhile, the Ospreys’ lone goal came from freshman mid-fielder Winston Taylor.


“We knew our backs were up against the wall when we played UCF and SCAD,” senior Kyle Nelson said. “We’re not generating the goals on offense thus far. That’s why we’re losing games.”


The Ospreys will have a double-header Feb. 18-19 against the College of Charleston and the Citadel. The team has been in this position before, but the last time it had its back against the wall, it rose to the challenge.


“In 2010 we started 0-3; we finished the season with a 3-1 record in the conference and made the Division II SELC playoffs in Atlanta, Georgia,” Nelson said. “There is no doubt in my mind we can do it again.”
