College lacrosse: The top seven goal scorers in Division I
Editor's note: All stats through April 26.
Between slicing through defenders and faking out goalkeepers, these guys can tickle the twine like no one else. Here are the top goal scorers in Division I men's lacrosse:
Kylor Bellistri | Brown | Sr. | Attack | 44 goals
The senior attackman from Potomac, Maryland, is one of the best around, scoring at an insane clip of 3.38 goals per game. His 44 goals in 13 games are tied for the top mark in Division I, and his playmaking ability helped catapult the Bears to a No. 2 overall ranking and an Ivy League title.
Luke Laszkiewicz | Robert Morris | Sr. | Attack | 44 goals
Laszkiewicz has been tearing through the Northeast Conference ever since he joined the Colonials in 2013. The senior from Ontario, Canada, has scored in every game except one this season and his numbers are tied with Bellistri. While he averages a hat trick per game (3.38 gpg), he has been known to bust open for more, scoring more than three goals five times and putting up a seven-and nine-goal performances.
Dylan Molloy | Brown | Jr. | Attack | 43 goals
It’s no surprise that two of the top three goalscorers hail from Brown, the highest scoring team in Division I. Molloy sits a hair behind Bellistri and Laszkiewicz with 43 goals in 13 games, or 3.31 goals per game. The reigning Ivy League Player of the Year also dishes the rock as much as he scores with 43 assists on the year.
Joseph Radin | Marist | Sr. | Attack | 43 goals
Radin's goalscoring tendencies have helped him set multiple records and milestones in his final year at Marist. The senior attackman is tied with Molloy for third with 43 goals this season, or 3.31 goals per game, and he became the first Red Fox to be drafted by a Major League Lacrosse team -- Radin was selected in the sixth round by the Charlotte Hounds. On April 9, Radin set the school record for goals when he scored his 146th in a four-goal outing against Siena.
Deemer Class | Duke | Sr. | Attack | 42 goals
The 10th overall pick in the MLL draft, Class was drafted for his innate ability to score. The senior accrued over 30 goals in his past three seasons, and this year he ranks fourth with 42 goals in 15 games. While his 2.80 goals per game average is only good for tenth in the country, Class has scored 22 goals against eight ranked opponents, including seven against then-No. 9 Syracuse on March 26.
Jon Vogel | Holy Cross | Jr. | Attack | 39 goals
Vogel had a breakout year in 2016, improving on a 10-goal 2015 to score 39 this season, which is tied for sixth all-time in Holy Cross program history. With the Crusaders bowing out of the Patriot League tournament with a loss to Bucknell on Tuesday, Vogel recorded a goal in every game of the 2016 season and has a 17-game goal streak going back to last year.
Jake Froccaro | Villanova | Jr. | Attack/Midfield | 38 goals
A junior transfer from Princeton, Froccaro picked up right where he left off with the Tigers in his first season at Villanova. In his first game as a Wildcat, Froccaro scored a hat trick, and in his second game, he set a school record with eight goals in a 19-9 win over then-No.15 Penn. Froccaro currently has 38 goals in 12 games with Villanova.
