After opening the weekend by notching a huge win over rival Florida on Friday, the Georgia men’s lacrosse team hosted N.C. State on Sunday afternoon. Though the outcome remained in doubt until the closing moments of the contest, Georgia came away with a 7-6 victory.
The Bulldogs leapt out to an early 2-0 advantage and held a 3-1 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Wolfpack surged back to cut the Georgia edge to 4-3 by halftime, then the visitors tied the game at four goals apiece midway through the third quarter.
The contestants were deadlocked, 5-5, with eight minutes remaining to play, but the Red and Black took a 7-5 lead on two fourth-quarter scores. N.C. State scored with 103 seconds remaining to cut the final margin to a lone goal.
Georgia’s leading scorer was attacker Trent Dean, who accounted for a trio of goals, but the Bulldogs also received one score each from midfielders Jeff Campbell, Daniel Naughton, and Conner Reed, plus another goal off the stick of attacker Michael Trainer.
