Bucknell rode an eight-goal effort from their first midfield line and a record day from freshman faceoff specialist Jarett Witzal to a 15-10 victory over visiting Mount St Mary’s on Friday evening.
Witzal was the key in the victory winning an astounding 21 of 27 draws which helped Bucknell dominate possession. Had Witzal not totally schooled his opponents, this game would have gone down to the wire as The Mount out-shot the Bison over the first three periods despite the huge possession disparity.
Both Bucknell and Mount St Mary’s have thus far posted winning records, and have looked decent at times. Both are jockeying for position in their conference tourney’s and both are currently sitting in or near the last spot, meaning each really needed this win in the event non-conference tie breakers came into play for tourney seeding. #AdvantageBucknell
Bucknell will host Lafayette in a near must-win conference match-up on 4/15 and Mount St Mary’s will take UMBC at home on 4/12.
