BETHANY, W.Va. – Chancey Cothren scored a pair of goals for Earlham men's lacrosse, but host Bethany College went on a 13-goal run spanning all four quarters on its way to an 18-2 win over the Quakers, Saturday afternoon at Bison Stadium.

Cothren's first goal tied the game up at 1-1 at the 10:38 mark of the first quarter, responding to an earlier strike from the Bison's Tristan Shaffer.

The next goal from Cothren snapped Bethany's streak of 13 straight goals, when he beat Bison reserve goalie Zac Wyman with 6:22 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Nine different players scored for Bethany, led by Bryan Uth with four goals and two assists. Nichlas Melita, Shaka Conteh, Hunter Jackson, Anthony Helias, and Tritan Shaffer each had two goals.

Quaker goalie Xavier Flores finished with six saves on the day, while Bethany's Sean Rhodes played just over 50 minutes and earned the win with four saves. Wyman charted a little under 10 minutes and had two saves.

Bethany outshot Earlham, 54-12, and had 56 ground balls to the Quakers' 37.

Earlham is back in action on Wednesday, April 11, when it hosts Mount St. Joseph University in a conference game starting at 7:00 p.m.
