MEN’S LACROSSEDelhi 8, Genesee 7

Colby Treat scored twice Saturday to lead SUNY Delhi to a victory at Genesee Community College, which entered the week as the second-ranked NJCAA Division III team in the country.

“That’s the highest-ranked team we’ve ever beaten, that’s for sure,” said Broncos coach Bob Leary, whose eighth-ranked squad jumped to a 5-0 lead after one period. “We were up from the beginning, then we kind of held on to win.”

Jake Gui contributed a goal and four assists for Delhi (2-1), which received two assists from Paul Hylan. Although the Broncos were outshot, 43-18, they finished with advantages of 32-13 in groundballs and 13-5 in faceoffs.

Robert Rohan keyed the victory with 23 saves in goal for Delhi, which held a 6-4 lead at halftime.

“He’s a really good goalie,” Leary said. “He’s done a great job and he was a huge part as to why we won.”

Genesee (1-1) capped the scoring with less than a second remaining.

Delhi will host Anne Arundel on March 20.
