            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Eleven different players scored at least one goal Saturday afternoon as Plymouth State University celebrated Senior Day with an 18-5 non-conference victory over Wentworth Institute of Technology in men's lacrosse action at Panther Field.

            The Panthers led 5-0 after one quarter and extended the lead to 10-1 at halftime.  The Panthers pulled away to a 14-2 advantage after three quarters before coasting home with the win.  PSU completes the regular season with a 10-5 overall record, while Wentworth drops to 5-8.

            Senior John Cogswell (Jefferson, Mass.) and sophomore Brian Giroux (Wolfeboro Falls, N.H.) led the PSU scoring parade with three goals and two assists apiece.  Seniors Adam Krinsky (Concord, N.H.) and Mike Russell (Concord, N.H.) contributed two goals and two assists each, and sophomore Kyle Belanger (Southington, Conn.) chipped in with two goals and an assist.

            Junior Chris Wesche (Holden, Mass.) led the visitors with two goals, while senior Nick Lambros (Forestdale, Mass.), junior Cory Benulis (Victor, N.Y.) and sophomore Bryan McCarthy (Medfield, Mass.) contributed one each.
