Hofstra MLAX Defeats CAA Foe Delaware in Rainy Matinee

The Hofstra Pride men’s lacrosse team improved its season record to 7-4 with a 13-7 victory over a Colonial Athletic Association rival, the University of Delaware Blue Hens. This is the Pride’s first conference win after losing to the Fairfield Stags in a close 9-8 matchup last Saturday, bringing them to a 1-1 record in CAA play. Securing this CAA win is important for the Pride as they look ahead to tournament hopes.

While the rain that descended on James M. Shuart Stadium presented conditions that weren’t ideal, the Pride dominated in the special Alumni Day matinee. Scoring was balanced as contributions came from up and down the Hofstra lineup. Junior Josh Byrne recorded six points in the game, including two goals and four assists, to lead his Pride. Sophomore Brendan Kavanagh had a career-high four points in the game with two goals and two assists. The Pride will head to the road for the next two games, taking on Drexel on April 16 and UMass Amherst on April 23, before closing out the regular season at home on April 30. All three of these battles are within the CAA conference.
