Point University celebrates lone senior on senior night but lose to Shorter

Published 8:29 pm Thursday, March 31, 2022

The Point University lacrosse team celebrated senior night on Thursday, but there was precious little to celebrate on the field as the Skyhawks were trounced 15-5 by Shorter University.

The Skyhawks only had one senior, Jassiem Josse, to honor at halftime during the game as they are a young team still learning how to play together.

Josse actually got the opening goal for the Skyhawks to tie the game at one apiece with 6:15 left to go in the first period. Shorter retook the lead a few minutes later, but the Skyhawks kept the game close going into the second period as they only trailed by one at the end of the first period.

Shorter rattled off eight unanswered goals across the second and third periods to take a 10-1 lead going into the fourth and final period.

Malyke Sillers grabbed back-to-back goals to start the fourth period to stop the bleeding for the Skyhawks.

Shorter scored another four unanswered goals to kill off any momentum the Skyhawks were building.

Josse and Sillers each got their third goal of the game down the stretch with a Shorter goal inbetween their scores.

Point University falls to 0-11 overall and 0-6 in the conference on the season. The Skyhawks only have three games left on the schedule with their next game against Mount Vernon Nazarene (Tenn.) on April 5.
