WESTON, Mass. – AJ Karofsky (Barrington, R.I.) scored a game-high four goals, Brent Young (Feeding Hills, Mass.) added two goals and five assists and the Regis (Mass.) men's lacrosse team doubled up Mitchell in a 14-7 win over the Mariners Monday afternoon at Regis Stadium.
Nick Penta (Andover, Mass.) and JJ LaRose (Litchfield, N.H.) each played a half in net for the Pride (2-2) who saw Mitchell score the game's first three goals and not get on the board until Karofsky's score from Young with 11:21 remaining in the second quarter. Kyle Marsh (Oakdale, Conn.) and Jack Dalton (Middletown, Del.) provided the offense for the Mariners (0-4) in the first quarter. Marsh opened the game with an unassisted goal and assisted on the second of Dalton's first two goals for the 3-0 lead after one quarter.
