BOSTON, Mass. – Senior Ryan Madden (Hingham, Mass.) and sophomore Colby Buccheri (Rowley, Mass.) scored four goals apiece Tuesday evening as the Lasell College men's lacrosse team extended its winning streak to eight games with a 14-7 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) victory over Emmanuel College at Roberto Clemente Field.

Buccheri scored twice in the first quarter and Madded added one in the first quarter and one in the second as the Lasers took a 7-0 lead. They led 10-2 at halftime and 12-4 after three quarters before closing out the win. Lasell improves to 9-1 overall and 4-0 in the GNAC, while Emmanuel drops to 2-8 overall and 2-2 in conference play.

Freshman Jordan Hines (Essex Junction, Vt.) chipped in with two goals for the Lasers, and senior Mike Susi (Gorham, Maine) added a goal and three assists. Lasell won 17-of-24 face-offs, with junior Ben Werner (Boxford, Mass.) winning 12-of-17 with a team-high seven ground balls and freshman Steven Phelps (Stamford, Conn.) winning 5-of-6 with five ground balls.

Senior Matt Katon (East Falmouth, Mass.) led the Saints with three of the seven goals, while junior Alex Flanagan (Westford, Mass.) and senior Steve Gervasio (Johnston, R.I.) both scored twice.

The Lasers used two goalies, with freshman Alex Beauchemin (Westfield, Mass.) making four saves in the first half and junior Ryan Janovic (East Lyme, Conn.) making three stops in the second half.
