Junior Defenseman Causes Seven Turnovers in Two Games

MADISON, N.J. — Goucher's Bryce Carson (Wyomissing, Pa./Lancaster Country Day School) was named Men's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week in the Landmark Conference for April 2-8.

The junior close defenseman, who has started 30 consecutive games for the Gophers over the past two seasons, was credited with causing five turnovers by the opposing team in a 13-7 victory over Eastern and two more in a 15-3 triumph over Christopher Newport. He's now had five caused turnovers in a game three times during his career at Goucher.

Through the first 13 games of the season, Carson ranks second on the team with 27 caused turnovers.

In addition, he picked up a total of eight ground balls in the two games the Gophers played last week.

Goucher ranks sixth among the 185 Division III men's lacrosse programs throughout the nation in scoring defense through games played April 8. The Gophers allowed their first 13 opponents to score 68 goals, an average of 5.23 per contest.
