Senior attacker Gus Sturm (Devon, Pa./Conestoga) scored three straight goals in the fourth period to help The University of Scranton men's lacrosse team defeat Muhlenberg, 12-6, on Saturday, March 1, in Allentown, Pa. As a result, he has been named the University's Athlete of the Week.
Sturm's three goals were part of a six-goal run by the Royals that turned a 6-4 game into a 12-4 Scranton lead. He scored three times in the span of 82 seconds to end the six-goal spurt and put the game away for the Royals, their first victory of the season.
The goals were the first three of the season for Sturm, who took six shots and also collected a ground ball. He now has 24 career goals on 41 career shots on goal.
Sturm and the Royals will play their home opener on Wednesday, March 5, when they host York (Pa.) at 4 p.m. at Fitzpatrick Field.
