CONWAY, Ark. - The University of Dubuque men's lacrosse team traveled to Hendix College for their second of three straight road contests, falling to the Warriors, 10-2.
Davis Behrns got the Spartan attack rolling early when he took a pass from Tanner Weis and snuck a shot past the Hendrx goalie to give UD a 1-0 lead less than three minutes into the game. Both offense remained quiet until Hendix scored two goals within a 30 second span late in the second quarter to give the Warriors a 2-1 lead at halftime.
The Spartans started the second half similar to the first half, with a quick goal from Davis Behrns and an assist from Tanner Weis.
