Binghamton rally falls short against Colgate in 9-7 loss
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.
The Bearcats outshot Colgate 29-19 for the game, including 18-4
in the final half of play. Sophomore goalie Tim Harrington, however,
came up with 10 saves, including seven in the second half to
preserve the win.
Binghamton heads to Vermont for a 1 p.m. America East Conference
game on Saturday.
