UNF lacrosse returns to the field Feb. 25 for a divisional matchup against Georgia Southern.

 

With only three divisional games remaining, this game will be crucial to the remainder of the season for the Ospreys.

 

“Winning against Georgia Southern is critical because we want to control how our season goes and not leave it up to the other teams in our division,” sophomore attacker Austin Wittman said. “We’re going to give it everything we’ve got against them.”

 

UNF continued its disappointing start this week. After beginning the season 0-3, the team hoped to use games against the Citadel and College of Charleston to get back on the winning track. However, the Citadel and Charleston served up two more losses for the Ospreys, bringing their record to 0-5 for the year and 0-1 in the division.

 

In the first matchup, Charleston beat the Ospreys 12-7 behind Casey Scagnelli’s six points.

 

For the Ospreys, Wittman led the way with four goals.

 

In their second game, the Bulldogs defeated the Ospreys with a score of 16-8, leaving UNF 0-2 for the weekend. George Sourlis had a big game for the Bulldogs, with five points off two goals and three assists. Jacob Stenson added three goals for the Citadel, and the game quickly grew out of UNF’s favor.

 

“Nobody is happy about losing, especially to teams that we have easily beaten in previous years,” Wittman said. “We hate it, and right now we need to focus on the positives.”
