HARTFORD, Conn. – After a competitive first period, The College of Wooster men's lacrosse team fell on the wrong end of an 8-1 second quarter run and suffered a 22-6 loss to Trinity College (Conn.) on Wednesday.

After falling behind early 3-0, the Scots stayed competitive in the first period. Cullen Kuhn scored to put Wooster on the board, and after Trinity scored again Wooster received back-to-back goals from Joe Altieri and Cooper Pewitt.

Another goal from Trinity made it a 5-3 game after one period. However, Wooster could not keep up with the scoring of Trinity who opened the second period with four consecutive goals.

Ted Wells stopped the run with an assist from Zach Cunanan with 5:55 to go in the half, but Trinity closed the period with four unanswered and led 13-4 at halftime.

The two teams swapped goals to start the third. Wells scored again with an assist from Shaun Peirce. Later, Peirce scored a man-up goal off an assist from Drake Nickolaison.

That would be all the scoring from the Scots as Trinity scored the game's final six goals.

Wesley Wagner made 14 saves in the loss.

Wooster won just three face offs, collected 10 groundballs and was outshot 55-27.

The Scots are now 0-5, while Trinity moves to 2-1. Wooster heads to Western Connecticut State for a 1 p.m. Saturday matchup next.
