PROTECT THEIR DEN — Gettysburg College’s Jack Harvey is crunched as Ursinus goalie Nick Kirk guards the net during Saturday’s Centennial Conference Championship game at Shirk Field. The Bears won, 10-8.

The 21st time was a charm.

Ursinus had never beaten Gettysburg in men’s lacrosse, going 0-for-20 against Hank Janczyk-coached squads prior to Saturday afternoon. The Bears broke the skein at last, riding a hot goalie and a physical style to a 10-8 bludgeoning of the Bullets in the Centennial Conference championship game at Shirk Field. With the win – its first-ever conference crown – Ursinus received an automatic berth in the NCAA Division III tournament. Gettysburg (14-4) received an at-large bid.
