GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro College broke a 3-3 tie at the break with three goals in the third quarter and three more in the fourth to grab a 9-5 non-conference men's lacrosse win over Ferrum College this afternoon at Pride Field.

Greensboro (3-2)
Ferrum (0-3)

It took Greensboro all of seven seconds to open scoring with Patrick Bell drawing first blood. The Panthers responded with a goal each from Jacob Boswell and Mackoy Bodmer to go out in front 2-1 after one quarter.

Ronald Carney made it 3-1 when he beat Greensboro goalkeeper Kyle Ishler at 4:49 of the second quarter. David Miller scored two goals in less than a minute before the end of the first half and the two teams were deadlocked at 3-3 at halftime.

Carney scored his second goal of the game 1:41 into the third quarter for a 4-3 Panther lead, but Greensboro got hot and scored four straight to take a 7-4 lead five minutes into the fourth quarter. Jack Sheehan found the back of the net for Ferrum's final goal and trimmed the lead to 7-5 with 5:25 left in regulation, but that was as close as the Panthers would get. Greensboro added a pair of insurance goals in the waning moments of play.

Greensboro: Miller 2 goals; Philip Gerber 2 goals; Spencer Kontoulas goal, 2 asst;
           Ishler 60 min, 6 saves
Ferrum: Carney 2 goals; Sheehan goal, 2 asst; GK Koby McMahon 60 min, 12 saves
