Connor Greene from Shelton contributed his first career point when the Eastern Connecticut State University men's lacrosse team held Gordon College without a goal for 32 minutes during a run of eight unanswered goals in a 12-6 season-opening non-conference win Saturday afternoon at the Brigham Athletic Complex.

Greene, a freshman midfielder for the Warriors, was credited with 100-plus points during his three-year varsity career at Shelton. A senior captain, Greene is fifth all time in points for the Gaels, second-most by a midfielder.

Trailing 3-2 three minutes into the second quarter, the Warriors shut out the Scots (0-3) for 32 minutes, getting eight goals from six players in a 26-minute run that vaulted Eastern into a 10-3 lead with 12 minutes left in the game in winning its season-opener (on the road) for the second straight season under second-year head coach Marc Graham.

Junior Tyler Koppy (Attleboro, MA) led the defense by forcing six turnovers and picking up seven ground balls, helping Eastern to a +10 advantage in ground balls. Sophomore LSM Jack Lombardo (Berlin) scooped up five.

Eastern hosts Johnson & Wales March 8 at 1 p.m. at Rick McCarthy Field.
