Firebirds hustled in second half but came up short in game against the NYIT Bears.

Westbury, N.Y.- The University of the District of Columbia men's lacrosse team fell to the NYIT Bears, Saturday Afternoon at the President's Stadium field.

Senior Syrrus Nash led the Firebirds with a season high of four goals and two assists. Jacob Saunders, Eric Boco and Alan Singleton contributed two goals each and Tyler Mace assisted three goals. 

It was a slow start for the Firebirds as the first quarter saw the Bears outscoring them 7-2. During the second quarter, both defensive teams played very well with the goalies receding only two goals each. The heat would turn up in the last two quarters with UDC scoring six goals, but it would prove not to be enough as they eventually fell to NYIT 21-11.
