Spencer Rees, Patrick Skalniak lead Navy men’s lacrosse to 13-10 victory over Bucknell after month-long layoff

When you haven’t played a game for a month and went three weeks without practicing as a team, you’ll take a win whatever way you can get it.

Coach Joe Amplo thought the Navy men’s lacrosse team was rusty and a bit sloppy at times Sunday but was thrilled to come away with a valuable Patriot League win.

Sophomore midfielder Patrick Skalniak amassed a career-best six points to spark a balanced offensive effort, while senior goalie Spencer Rees recorded a career-high 17 saves to cover for some defensive breakdowns as No. 16 Navy beat Bucknell, 13-10, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
