GEORGETOWN, Texas – With a 24-0 win on senior day the Southwestern men's lacrosse team tied the record for most goals in a game and end the regular season with their best record ever, 10-4.

The Pirates continued to roll in the second half and scored seven goals in the third quarter before working the clock and scoring two goals in the fourth to arrive at the 24-0 record tying final.

SU first scored 24 goals against the University of Dallas in 2011 and matched the effort against Centenary in 2013 and again today.
