Men's Lacrosse falls to nationally-ranked foe

GRANVILLE, Ohio – Albion College had few possessions in its offensive zone Wednesday and that helped fourth-ranked Denison University score a 18-1 victory over the Britons at Piper Stadium.

Denison won 18 of the 23 face-offs in the game, and when Albion did gain possession in the defensive end, it was able to complete 8 of 18 clearing opportunities.

Alec Palmer scored Albion's goal in the third quarter. It was his fifth of the season, pulling him into a tie with Brandon Lebioda for second-most on the team. David DiRado leads the Britons with six goals on the season.

Seven men scored goals for Denison. Spencer Butler led the Big Red with four goals and an assist.

Albion will play on campus for the first time this season at 7 p.m. Tuesday against John Carroll University.
