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...

The men’s lacrosse team continues to search for an­swers as the season progresses. Before the break, the Yeo­men were 1–3 as they entered their game against the Ohio Wesleyan University Battling Bishops on March 19. The Yeomen’s defense could not withstand the Bat­tling Bishops’ offensive onslaught. It took a goal toward the end of the first half from senior attacker Nick Lobley to answer the Bishops’ 11–0 run. After a tough first half, the Yeomen kept the Bishops close to even in the second half, which led to a 19–9 loss for the Yeomen. A bright spot in the disappointing afternoon came when senior midfielder Alex Wright notched his first goal of the season. Wright felt that the team’s second-half...
