GEORGETOWN, Texas - Southwestern easily handled new SCAC foe Johnson & Wales (CO) Friday evening, defeating the Wildcats 24-3.

Thomas Volpe's back-to-back goals to open the third quarter set the tone for the Pirates. After four Pirate goals JWU broke their drought as Deshaunte Longley found the back of the net, assisted by Joshua Williamson. 

JWU struck first in the fourth quarter but were unable to get a run as the Pirates cruised to the win. 

Southwestern dominated every category including losing just two faceoffs all evening. Zac Asbury led offensively with four goals and six assists while Matt Amerie posted five goals and one assist. 

Jordan Riggs headed up the defense with four caused turnovers while Tyler Watts and Achilles Armendarez had ten ground balls each.
