Ben Connelly, Junior, Men's Lacrosse

Tufts scored five man-up goals in their 18-11 victory over Ithaca College in the NCAA Championship 3rd Round at Bello Field on Saturday and Connelly had three of them. He scored twice on the man-advantage during a devastating four-goal run by the Jumbos while Ithaca served a locked-in two-minute penalty late in the first quarter. That turned a 3-2 lead into 7-2 and Connelly’s third man-up goal at 7:13 of the second quarter put Tufts ahead 9-2. They did not lead by less than four goals the rest of the way. Connelly had four goals overall.
