Binghamton men's lacrosse loses season opener at No. 7 Cornell 19-4
ITHACA, N.Y.--Junior midfielder John Glynn scored a game-high four goals and added a pair of assists, leading No. 7 Cornell (1-0) to a 19-4 win over visiting Binghamton (0-1) in a non-conference men's lacrosse game on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field. The game marked to first contest of the Bearcats' sixth season as an intercollegiate program.
"Cornell looked like they were in midseason form but it was a disappointing game because we turned the ball over way too much," Binghamton head coach Ed Stephenson said. "We've got to get back to the fundamentals this week. If we do, we'll be fine."
Glynn scored two of his goals and had both of his assists in the first half as the Big Red built an 8-0 advantage. On defense, Cornell surrendered just 17 shots on goal and kept Binghamton off the scoreboard for the first 35 minutes of the game.
Senior attack Eric Pittard added three goals and two assists for Cornell while senior attack Henry Bartlett also turned in a three-goal game.
Binghamton got all four of its goals in the third quarter. Senior attack Rob Williams (Fulton, N.Y.) and freshman midfielder Steve Carlson (Penn Yan, N.Y.) scored 1:14 apart, cutting the deficit to 12-2. Freshman attack Chris Welch (Skaneateles, N.Y.) was credited with the assist on Williams' goal.
Sophomore attack Jake Boyce (Pittsford, N.Y.) and freshman attack Drew Wichman (Syracuse, N.Y.) also scored during the third quarter but by then, Cornell had built a 15-4 advantage. The Big Red went on a 4-0 run in the final quarter of player.
Binghamton heads to Hobart for a 1 p.m. game next Saturday.
