Binghamton men's lacrosse drops 12-6 decision at Colgate
HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Junior attack Matt Lalli scored a game-high four goals, leading Colgate (7-5) to a 12-6 win over Binghamton (3-6) in a non-conference men's lacrosse game on Tuesday evening at Tyler's Field. The game marked the final non-conference contest of the season for the visiting Bearcats.
Sophomore midfielder Brandon Corp and sophomore attack Kevin Colleluori each added three goals. Senior attack Matt McNamara (Oswego, N.Y.) led Binghamton with a pair of goals.
Ahead 3-2 after the first quarter, the Red Raiders blew the game open with four unanswered goals to take a 7-2 advantage with 14 seconds left in the first half. Corp had two of his goals and Lalli had a goal and an assist during that span. Freshman attack Andy Cook (Vestal, N.Y.), however, got a goal back for Binghamton with just one second left in the half.
Corp completed the hat trick with an unassisted goal at the 6:05 mark of the third quarter. Sophomore attack Kevin Colleluori followed with an unassisted goal nearly four minutes later, increasing the lead to 9-3. With 48 seconds left in the third quarter, freshman attack Jeff Rurey (Vestal, N.Y.) scored a man-up goal, narrowing the deficit to 9-4.
Sophomore attack Jake Boyce (Pittsford, N.Y.) narrowed the deficit to 9-5 just 53 second into the fourth quarter but Colleluori scored an important insurance goal less than three minutes later, reclaiming a five-goal cushion for the Red Raiders. From there, Colgate scored two of the final three goals, capped by Lalli's final tally with five seconds left in the game.
The Bearcats outshot the Red Raiders 33-24 and won 12 of the 21 draws. Sophomore goalie Brian Cain, however, made 11 saves in the winning effort.
Binghamton heads to No. 15 UMBC on Saturday for a 7 p.m. game.
