Berry's Comeback Bid Falls Short in 6-4 Loss at Sewanee

Sewanee jumped out to a 5-0 lead and never looked back in defeating Berry 6-4 in a men's lacrosse game in Sewanee, Tenn., Saturday.

Sewanee scored four times in the first period, then added a fifth goal just over a minute into the second period to take a commanding lead.

Michael Emanuelo put Berry on the board with a goal with 12:28 remaining in the half, just 32 seconds before teammate Cal Supik pulled the Vikings to within 5-2 with a goal of his own.

Sewanee's Michael Morris would score his second goal of the match with 5:29 left in the half to give the Tigers a 6-2 advantage, which they would take with them into the intermission.

After a scoreless third quarter, Berry would tack on a pair of goals in the game's late stages. Bryan Byers took a pass from Supik and found the net with 4:04 remaining in the contest, before Supik would add his second goal on an assist from Michael Harper with 3:40 left to play.

However, the Vikings' comeback bid ran out of time.

Sewanee outshot the Vikings 27-22 overall, but Berry had more chances in the second half, taking 17 shots, compared to nine by the Tigers.

Berry goalie Jordan Boreman finished with 12 saves. Tommy Healy saves eight shots for Sewanee.

The Vikings are scheduled to return to action Wednesday against Carthage.
