The University of Scranton men's lacrosse team scored nine times in the opening period and did not look back, thumping Washington & Jefferson, 13-3, in a non-conference matchup on Senior Day at Fitzpatrick Field on Saturday.

The Royals (8-6), who were playing their regular season finale, scored 12 first-half goals en route to a 12-1 lead. The 12 goals in a half are the most since they scored 12 in the second half of an 18-3 win at Western Connecticut State on March 12 of last season. 

Junior attackman Matt Carfaro (Long Valley, N.J./West Morris) led the offense with three goals and an assist. Junior attackman Patrick O'Rourke (Floral Park, N.Y./Chaminade) had three goals and freshman attackman Quinn Killeen (Berkeley Heights, N.J./New Providence) added two. Sophomore attackman Tim Dolan (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) also had a big game with a goal and three assists.

Scranton also received a goal apiece from junior midfielder Conor Carey (Long Beach, N.Y./Chaminade), junior attackman Casey Green (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius) and freshman midfielders Joe Hill (South Hempstead, N.Y./South Side) and Justin Jordan (Farmingville, N.Y./Sachem East). Junior midfielder Adam Drury (Chatham, N.J./Chatham), freshman attackman Connor Kirkwood (Millburn, N.J./St. Peter's Prep) and freshman midfielder Michael Elefonte (Kinnelon, N.J./Kinnelon) added assists. 

The Royals enjoyed a commanding 47-21 edge in shots and won 15 of 20 faceoffs, including 11 of 12 by Drury. Scranton committed just eight turnovers compared to 16 by Washington & Jefferson (5-11). Scranton also won the ground ball battle, 46-30.

Drury led Scranton with eight ground balls and freshman defender Alex Dadourian (Summit, N.J./Summit) had four ground balls and a team-high two caused turnovers. Four Scranton goalkeepers combined to make six saves, led by senior Alex Malecki (Hillsborough, N.J./Hillsborough), who made three first-half saves to earn his seventh win of the season. 

Prior to faceoff, the University honored seniors Sean Ebert (Woolwich Township, N.J./St. Joseph's Prep), Jake Haimson (Montville, N.J./Montville), Mattias Jones (Exton, Pa./Malvern Prep), William Joyce (Bethesda, Md./St. John's), Malecki, Patrick Sawyer (Doylestown, Pa./Germantown Academy), John Sheridan (Ridgewood, N.J./Ridgewood) and Brian Smith (Montville, N.J./Montville Township).

The Royals will return to action on Wednesday, May 3, as the fourth seed in a Landmark Conference semifinal at top-seeded Elizabethtown at 4 p.m.
