Collegian: Grant Whiteway has career day for UMass men's lacrosse

Daily Collegian staff writer Andrew Cyr spoke with men's lacrosse head coach Greg Cannella and junior attackman Grant Whiteway following Tuesday's 16-11 win over Providence, during which Whiteway tallied a career-high seven goals to lead the team to victory. Cyr highlighted Whiteway's big day with his game wrap-up below:

"To say Grant Whiteway had a good game is an understatement.

The attackman finished with a career-high seven goals and an assist as the No. 14 Massachusetts men's lacrosse team defeated Providence 16-11 on Tuesday at Garber Field.

'It feels good,' Whiteway said of his performance. 'The offense was moving good today and I was on the receiving end of a lot of stuff. My teammates were finding me when I was open and everyone was moving off ball so it made it easy.'

Whiteway entered Tuesday's game with just five goals on the season to go along with three assists. He was the Minutemen's leading returning scorer this season after finishing his 2013 campaign with 26 goals.

Whiteway received a pass from Connor Mooney in front of the cage just two minutes, 27 seconds into the game. He snuck it past Friars goalkeeper Tyler Hines, who was pulled after the first quarter, and from that point forward the Minutemen never looked back..."
