The men’s lacrosse team journeyed to Gambier, Ohio Wednesday for its annual rivalry matchup against the Ke­nyon College Lords. After Saturday’s loss to Denison Uni­versity — ranked fifth in the nation — the Yeomen were looking to get back into the win column against their conference foe. While the Lords boast one of the North Coast Athletic Conference’s best offenses, the Yeomen were looking to keep their Conference hopes alive with a win in Gambier. Kenyon started the game aggressively, scoring eight goals in the first half alone. Junior attacker Eric Hager had the Yeomen’s lone goal in the first half, sending Oberlin into the halftime down by a score of 8–1. Senior attacker Nick Lobley and sophomore...

Senior attacker Alex Wagman takes aim Feb. 20 against the visiting Olivet College Comets. Wagman had three goals on Sunday as the Yeo­men lost an overtime thriller to the visiting St. Mary’s College Seahawks 11–10. Wagman’s last goal came with four seconds left in regulation to keep Oberlin’s chances alive and force an extra period of play. However, just over a minute into overtime, the Yeomen’s costly 29th turnover led to a transition fast-break, which the Seahawks’ Matt Carey converted...
