Brunetti Sets School Record for Saves in Falcons' Loss to Norwich

New Haven, Conn. – Junior goalkeeper John Brunetti (West Haven, Conn.) of the Albertus Magnus College men's lacrosse team set a new school record in saves with 30, but the Falcons fell at home to Norwich University, 18-3, on Saturday afternoon in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference showdown at Celentano Field.

FINAL SCORE: Norwich 18 | Albertus Magnus 3

Norwich came out of the gate hot scoring three unanswered goals to take the early lead until back-to-back goals from junior James May (Branford, Conn.) cut the Cadets' lead to one, 3-2, with 4:06 left in the first. However, Norwich would score a pair of goals with less than five seconds left on the clock to take a four-goal advantage, 6-2.
