Kline, Defense lead Men's Lacrosse to 5-1 win over Marist
Poughkeepsie, N.Y.-- Junior goalie Larry Kline (Beverly, Mass.) made 12 saves and the Bearcat defense held host Marist scoreless until the 8:17 mark of the third quarter en route to a 5-1 victory on Saturday afternoon from Tenney Stadium.
The Bearcats' 5-6 netminder turned away five Marist shots in the fourth quarter and finished with 12 saves for the game as BU tied a school record for fewest goals allowed (1, vs. Wagner on 3-30-04). After two games, Kline and the Bearcat defense have allowed just four total goals.
Junior attack Jake Boyce (Pittsford, N.Y.) scored a pair of goals, sophomore Drew Wichmann (Syracuse, N.Y.) had a goal and an assist to lead the BU offense. Boyce now leads the Bearcats with three goals and an assist on the season.
Juniors Chris Mulheron (Canandaigua, N.Y.) and Kevin Joy (Camillus, N.Y.) each had scores to round out Binghamton's scoring on the afternoon.
Joy opened the game's scoring at 8:31 mark of the second quarter on an assist from junior Duncan Streeten (Corning, N.Y.). Wichmann converted a man-up opportunity with 3:41 remaining to put the Bearcats ahead 2-0. Just 1:23 later, Wichmann fed Mulheron for his first score of the season to give Binghamton a 3-0 halftime advantage.
With 8:17 remaining in the third quarter, Marist's Zachary Walsh ended the Red Foxes' 36:43 scoreless streak with an unassisted score. Boyce added a pair of scores in the final quarter to create the final margin.
The Bearcats are back in action on Saturday, March 15 at 2 p.m. when Sacred Heart visits the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Bearcats lead the all-time series with the Pioneers, 1-0.
Notes: Binghamton now leads the all-time series, 2-0...The Bearcats won last year's meeting, 11-4, on March 10 at Binghamton's Alumni Stadium.
