Milford's Tyler Stein has six goals for ECSU lacrosse

Tyler Stein from Milford has scored six goals with two assists through three games for the Eastern Connecticut State University men’s lacrosse team, which competes in the Division III Little East Conference.

He had two goals with an assist and two groundballs when the Warriors, coached by Marc Graham, saw their six-match regular-season winning streak over parts of three seasons came to a halt in a 13-5 non-conference loss at Roger Williams University on Tuesday.

Eastern had won its final two regular season matches of 2019, the only two played in the abbreviated 2020 season and had opened 2021 with road wins over Mitchell College (19-4) and University of Saint Joseph (8-2).

Stein, a 6-foot-2 senior midfielder also takes faceoffs, for the Warriors. He had two goals against Mitchell and two goals and an assist versus St. Joseph.

A four-year starter and team MVP as a senior at Notre Dame-Fairfield, Stein played in all 16 games at Eastern and earned his second letter as a sophomore when he won 49.1 percent of his faceoffs with a team-high 65 ground balls.
