Salisbury, N.C. – Brevard College’s men’s lacrosse team concluded the 2016 season on Tuesday afternoon at Catawba, losing to the hosts 15-7. Brevard ends the campaign with a 2-13 overall record and 0-8 record in South Atlantic Conference play.
In the season finale, Dennis Rammacher caused one turnover to set the program record for most caused in a season. The junior caused 1.53 per game for a total of 23.
Freshman Natron Curtis ended the season with 150 faceoffs won, the most by a player in program history. His 45 percent faceoff win percentage ranks third in program history.
Fellow freshman Kyle Hunziker also etched his name in the single season program record book, finishing the season with the second-most point total at 43. His 15 assists on the season are tied for the second-most while his 28 goals are tied for fourth.
Brevard opened up the contest on a 4-1 run to take the early advantage. Ryan Taylor scored the first goal of the contest two minutes in, followed by Josh Nicholson who doubled Brevard’s lead. Catawba (5-8, 3-4 SAC) countered with a goal, but the royal blue and white responded via a Jackson McKaig score. In the final minute of the first period, Taylor scored his second goal of the contest to extend the lead to three.
A defensive second frame allowed Catawba to chip into the Tornados’ lead with a goal midway through the period. Brevard took eight shots with four going on target, but the host’s goalkeeper stopped all of them to keep BC scoreless during the 15 minutes.
The Tornados wasted no time scoring in the second half, as Curtis won the initial faceoff and drove the ball into the attacking third for an unassisted score. In the same minute, Catawba scored but Hunziker recorded his first goal of the contest to make it 6-3. Catawba responded with a 10-0 run to put the hosts ahead 13-6 midway through the final frame. Curtis scored a goal in identical fashion to his first goal to end the spree, but Catawba ended the contest with back-to-back goals.
