BALTIMORE, MD – Senior Anthony Caputo had a hand in seven Pace goals against Lynn University on Saturday afternoon, leading the men’s lacrosse team to a 12-6 neutral-site victory over the Fighting Knights of Boca Raton, Florida.

Pace improves to 3-0 on the season, with its first Northeast-10 Conference game coming up next, as Lynn falls to 5-4.

The Setters utilized another stifling defensive performance to down the Fighting Knights, as the Blue & Gold defensive unit is allowing a modest 6.3 goals-per-game while scoring 14.3 goals-per-game.

Caputo finished with a monster seven-point stat-line for the second time in his career, distributing a career-high five assists and also scoring two goals of his own.

The Long Islander, who had 19 assists in 15 games last season, already has eight in just three contests this season, diversifying his game in a manner that has set his teammates up for success time and time again. Caputo has also netted eight tallies, the second most on the team to this point.

Pace begins the all-important NE10 portion of its season on Wednesday afternoon, with a spring break home tilt against Saint Michael’s College from Pace Stadium at 3:30 p.m.
