LEWISTON — Matt Chlastawa scored five goals and dished out five assists as the Bates College men’s lacrosse team took down defending national champion and top-ranked Wesleyan 15-12 at Garcelon Field on Saturday.

The last time Bates defeated a top-ranked team was in 2015 when it defeated Tufts.

The No. 20 Bobcats spotted the Cardinals a 1-0 lead but bounced back with a pair of goals to take a lead they never relinquished.

“We had the right people assigned to the right people; this win was keyed by outstanding one-on-one defense,” Bates coach Peter Lasagna said in a news release. “Offensively, we wanted to get our quick-strike offense going because they play the best zone defense in the country and most of the time we were able to do that.”
