Air Force lacrosse tops VMI, 14-4

Posted: Updated:

Chris Walsch led Air Force to victory over VMI with a hat trick performance in conference action, Saturday afternoon, in Lexington, Va. The Falcons, now 8-5 with a 4-1 mark in the SoCon, will take on conference front-runner, No. 15 Richmond, next week at home for Senior’s Day.

Walsch was the first to add his name to the score sheet with an unassisted goal two minutes into the game. Moments later, Trent Harper won the ensuing face-off in stride and found Walsch open for his second shot for a goal, just six seconds after his first. The assist marked Harper’s third of the season, while Walsch tallied his 30th goal.

The Keydets responded with three unanswered goals of their own, including one in a man-up situation, to take the lead, 3-2, at the 4:19 mark. Determined to keep things from getting out of control, Matthew Schwartz found Walsch open for a shot and his third goal in the first period. With two minutes remaining in the opening period, sophomore midfielder Jack Flynn assisted Grant Gould his first goal of the game to lift the Falcons to a 4-3 lead heading into the next period.

The Falcons dominated the second period of play, netting three goals while holding VMI to three shots and no goals. Sophomore defender Roland Wheeler IV added his name to the season scorebook with his first assist as he fed Schwartz for his first goal of the game, eighth of the season. Andrew Tien followed up with an unassisted goal for his ninth of the season. Flynn capped the first half with his 10th goal from Walsch’s feed, extending Air Force’s lead, 7-3.
