With the win, Salisbury wins its 12th national championship in program history, with the last coming last season and ends its 2017 campaign with a 22-1 record. The win sends the 2017 senior class off with their second national title as they end their careers with back-to-back championships. "This senior class is right up there as one of the greatest classes at Salisbury," Head Coach Jim Berkman said. "They played in three championships and won two. They've now won [83 games], which is an unheard of number in the game of lacrosse." The Tigers struck first in the championship bout, but Salisbury was able to settle in and rattle off two in a row to end the quarter. Garrett Reynolds opened the SU scoring after Kevin McDermott inverted his mark, drew the slide, and found Reynolds who stepped into a 12-yard rip that found the top-left corner. Josh Melton then doubled the Gulls' lead when there was a flag down following an RIT penalty and Melton got topside on his defender and went low-to-high to bury it under the ...
