men's lacrosse suffers 11-4 setback at Drexel
PHILADELPHIA, Pa.-- Colin Ambler had a goal and four assists,
leading host Drexel (1-2) to an 11-4 win over Binghamton (0-3)
on Saturday afternoon in a non-conference men's lacrosse game.
The loss keeps the Bearcats winless for the first time after
three games since 2007.
Both teams struck early and often as the game was deadlocked
at 3-3 after one quarter. Sophomore attack Brian
Donahue had two of the Bearcats' three goals. The second
quarter belonged to Ambler who had a goal and an assist, leading
the Dragons to a 5-3 lead at the half.
It was the third quarter, however, in which the Dragons blew
the game open, scoring all five goals in the period and outshooting
the Bearcats 15-3. Ambler notched a pair of assists during that
Junior midfielder Steve
Carlson scored 2:31 into the fourth quarter, trimming
the deficit to 10-4. The Bearcats, however, would be held scoreless
the rest of the way.
Senior goalie Larry
Kline made 12 saves for the Bearcats.
The Dragons outshot Binghamton 36-25, won 12 of the 19 face offs
and held a 43-29 advantage in ground balls.
Binghamton hosts Villanova on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
