YORK, Pa. – Salisbury University men's lacrosse seniors Carson Kalama and Andrew Ternahan picked up both the offensive and defensive players of the week, respectively, the Capital Athletics Conference announced Monday. With it being the first report of the season, the team's three games were all taken into account for the award.
Kalama was named the Co-Offensive Player of the Week after starting the team's first three games with nine goals and three assists. Kalama scored the game-winning goal in two of the Gulls' games and scored his nine goals on just 20 shots (45 percent). The Bel Air, Maryland native also added eight groundballs and three caused turnovers to start the season.
Ternahan produced on both ends of the field for Salisbury to pick up his Defensive Player of the Week nod with team-leading marks in groundballs (15) and caused turnovers (six). The Gulls' defense has only allowed 5.67 goals against per contest and has cleared the ball at a 98.2 percent rate (56-for-57). On the offensive end, Ternahan has one point in each game this season to sit at three assists going into the team's next contest.
That next contest will be on Saturday, February 25 when the Gulls welcome Gettysburg College to Sea Gull Stadium for a 1 p.m., faceoff.
