Genord, Kehoe Shine As Britons Sail Past Flying Durtchmen
HOLLAND, Mich. – Dan Genord and Jamie Kehoe scored three goals apiece as Albion College inched closer to securing its berth in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Men's Lacrosse Tournament with a 14-4 victory over Hope College.
Coach Jake DeCola was unhappy with the production of the extra-man unit in the first quarter, but Albion took control in the second quarter as Genord scored twice and Albion built a 4-0 lead 4 ½ minutes into the frame. Tim Urso dished out the assists on both of Genord's goals.
Kehoe's second tally of the quarter extended the Albion lead to 5-0.
"(Goalkeeper) Kyle Formanczyk made some fine stops in early and the offense took off once we settled in," DeCola said. "Jeff Irish had a nice game holding his man to one assist and he caused four turnovers."
Albion led 5-2 at halftime and it dominated the third quarter by scoring five times. Joel Hedemark scored a goal and dished out two assists in the quarter, and Genord and Kehoe each struck again.
Albion, 9-4 overall and 4-0 against MIAA rivals, visits Alma College Wednesday to begin the final week of the regular season.
