Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Junior attack Kevin Colleluori scored three goals and dished out a pair of assists, leading Colgate (6-5) to a 9-7 win at Binghamton (2-5) in a non-conference men's lacrosse game on Tuesday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The loss marked the final non-conference game of the season for the Bearcats.

Sophomore midfielder Ian Murphy and sophomore attack Zack Craumer added two goals each for the Raiders. Sophomore Andy Cook (Vestal, N.Y.) scored a career-high three goals and had an assist to lead Binghamton while sophomore midfielder Steve Carlson (Penn Yan, N.Y.) chipped in two goals and two assists.

Colleluori and Murphy each scored twice during a four-goal blitz in a span of 1:43 that gave Colgate a 5-1 advantage with 11:41 left to go in the first half. Cook countered with a pair of goals to cut the deficit to 6-3 at the break.

Following a scoreless third quarter, junior midfielder Kevin Joy (Camillus, N.Y.) trimmed the Raider lead to 6-4 with 12:31 remaining in regulation. Just 28 seconds later, however, Colgate went on a three-goal outburst in a span of 5:27 to take a 9-4 lead with 6:36 left. Craumer scored both of his goals and Colleluori had his final goal during the run.

Binghamton refused to go quietly, scoring three goals in the final five minutes of play. Carlson had a goal and an assist during the run and Cook closed the scoring with the final score of the night with 1:15 remaining. Colgate, however, controlled the ball the final minute of the game to secure the victory.
