The Roanoke College lacrosse team will play their Old Dominion Athletic Conference opener on Saturday at Salem’s Kerr Stadium. Game time is 1 pm as the Maroons host Virginia Wesleyan.

Roanoke was 2-1 on the season after defeating Sewanee last Saturday in Sewanee, Tennessee, 14-5. Reigning ODAC Player of the Week Peter Lindley scored seven times to lead Roanoke, as Lindley was named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for the second week in a row.

Lindley, a junior from Darien, Conn, increased his season-high by one tally. In three games, he has scored four, six, and seven goals. Lindley currently leads the ODAC with 17 goals scored and is tied for third with 19 points.

Ian Davies started in the cage for RC and made 14 saves in 50 minutes of action before giving way to Burke McManus, who made two stops.

The Maroons were scheduled to meet Wittenberg on Tuesday evening, but results were too late for publication. After Saturday’s home game with Virginia Wesleyan the Maroons will meet Gettysburg next Wednesday. The game will be played at a neutral site at St. Anne’s-Belfield School in Charlottesville.
