BLA and Canisius College alum Jon Domres (number 66) helped command Durham University en route to a record setting performance in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (the UK’s NCAA equivalent) opening game.  Domres found the back of the net 8 times as he and his fellow teammates racked up an astounding 39 goals against a helpless Sheffield University.  Domres, also a coach of Durham JV lacrosse squad, will look to lead Durham to its fourth straight national championship this spring.
