The Men’s Lacrosse Team (0-9, 0-2 Big East) is still looking for a win this season. The Friars have suffered a string of nine losses up to this point, but they have shown in their recent games the potential that their offense has to put up points.The most recent four losses began with a heartbreaker against former MAAC rival Siena on Saturday, March 27, in Loudonville, N.Y., in which the Friars lost the contest by a score of 11-9. The Friars and Saints entered the fourth quarter with the score tied at eight, but Siena posted three of the game’s final four goals to secure the victory. Midfielder Mike Feldberg ’11 paced the Friars with a career-high three goals while midfielder Jake Nolan ’12 added a personal-best three assists for PC.The Friars were then defeated by in-state rival Bryant University by a score of 9-8 on Saturday, April 3, at the Friar Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. The Friars overcame one or two goal deficits five times in the match to even the score with the Bulldogs, but Bryant scored two of the game’s final three goals to secure the victory. Offensively, Providence was led by midfielder Kyle Dexter ’13 who posted two goals in the game and won four-of-six face-offs to win PC a number of key possessions. In addition to Dexter, midfielders Jackson Fallon ’10 and Feldburg each notched two goals to pace the Friars.On the defensive side, goaltender Christian Dzwilewski’12 played a superb game in the cage for Providence, recording a career-best 11 saves while allowing nine goals in all 60 minutes of action. Dzwilewski stopped a number of difficult shots sent forth by Bryant to anchor a strong PC defensive unit in the game.The following Saturday, April 10, the Friars were defeated by Big East foe St. John’s University
