Panther City Lacrosse Club Stung By Georgia Swarm

DULUTH, GA (January 6, 2023) – The Panther City Lacrosse Club got off to a slow start that ultimately did them in, in a 12-10, loss to the Georgia Swarm on Saturday evening at the Gas South Arena. Panther City outscored the Swarm, 6-3, in the second half, including blanking them in the third quarter, but the comeback effort fell short.

18-year veteran Callum Crawford was the offensive standout for Panther City as he recorded eight points (3G/5A), which brings his season total up to 23 points and has now recorded at least four points in each game this season. With his three-goal effort tonight, Crawford has now recorded five hat tricks in 14 games with Panther City. Will Malcom led the club with four assists. Phil Caputo added two goals and one assist and scored a power play goal.

Second-year goalie, Cam MacLeod came in to relieve Nick Damude in the second quarter and ended up playing 42 minutes for his first action of the 2023-24 season. MacLeod stopped 23 of the 29 shots he faced, including the aforementioned blank slate in the third quarter. Second-year defender Ronin Pusch also made his season debut and led the team with 10 loose balls and went 13-24 (54.2%) from the face-off dot. Transition player Tony Malcom added two points (1G/1A), nine loose balls and two caused turnovers.

Panther City continues their road trip next weekend as they face the New York Riptide on Saturday, January 13 at 6:30 p.m.
