After winning two games last weekend, the Georgia men’s club lacrosse team returned to the intramural fields this afternoon for the Bulldogs’ first contest in the Classic City in a month. After rebounding from a 1-4 start with back-to-back SELC victories over Alabama and South Florida, the Red and Black evened their season ledger by taking their third straight against Auburn on Saturday.
The Tigers, who have not beaten the Bulldogs since 2009, came into the game sporting an overall 0-5 record after falling to Clemson last night. Georgia, which was determined not to become the Plainsmen’s first victim of the year, leapt out to a 7-1 halftime lead, then cruised to a 14-4 win. Auburn’s four goals against the Red and Black are tied for the fewest the Tigers have scored in an outing this season, and for the second-fewest the Athenians have allowed in 2014.
The Georgia gentlemen will travel to Fort Hill tomorrow for an afternoon contest against the Country Gentlemen. Clemson currently leads the North East Division of the SELC, while the Bulldogs have clawed their way back into contention in the league’s South West Division.
