John Burke scored three goals, including the game-winner, and two assists in a 14-13 win over Lynchburg College on Saturday.

The win clinched the #2 seed for the Tigers in the ODAC Tournament and a first-round bye. He scored a go-ahead goal with 1:28 left in the fourth quarter, then following a Lynchburg game-tying score at 40 seconds, Burke delivered again with the game-winner with 7.8 seconds left in the contest.

The junior attackman is having a career-best season, contributing 41 points on 21 goals and 20 assists. Burke has emerged as a clutch player as he also assisted on the game-winning score with less than a minute to play against then #16 Roanoke College.
