HOLLAND, Mich. – The men's lacrosse team (7-3, 2-0) pulled away from Hope College (6-2, 1-1) in the second quarter en route to a 10-5 win Thursday night in Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association action as Cody Kilcoyne tied an Adrian lacrosse record for most points in a single game with 10.

Cody Kilcoyne scored nine goals and had one assist in one of the best offensive showings in Adrian lacrosse history. The 10-point effort would tie Jeff Ivey, Ryan Knautz and T.J Cook for most points by an Adrian player in one game, while the nine goals would be the second-most scored in a game by a Bulldog- one short of Ivey's 10-goal performance against Hendrix College in 2008.

The nine goals and 10 points do tie for the most by an Adrian player in a conference game, however.

The teams went back and forth in the early going with the Flying Dutchmen tying the match at 5-5 with about 12 minutes left in the first half.

Tom Thielman scored twice to restore Adrian's lead as the Bulldogs would score the next six goals and coast from there.
