A big second period scoring burst keyed Medina to a come-from-behind 15-6 victory over host Salamanca this evening in a rain soaked Class D Division lacrosse game.

Trailing 4-3, Medina scored five straight goals to close the second period, including two by Brendan Luthart and one each by Coby Albone, Jake Cotter and Mike Carson, to rally into an 8-4 lead at the half.

“That was the turning point of the game,” said Coach Gordy Luthart. “We played very solid defense.”

Keeping the momentum, the Mustangs increased their advantage to 12-5 at the three-quarter mark.

Luthart and Cotter both finished with 4 goals, Albone 3, Mason Lewis 2 and Carson and Tyler Howard 1 each.  Luthart also had 3 assists and Cotter 2.

Improving to 2-0 in the division at 3-0 overall, Medina next hosts Silver Creek in another D Division contest at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
