Binghamton men's lacrosse wins 15-9 at Marist

Box score

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.-- Senior attack Jeff Rurey and freshman attack Matt Springer each scored a game-high four goals and senior midfielder Steve Carlson added three goals, leading Binghamton (2-4) to a 15-9 win at Marist (3-1) on Saturday afternoon. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Bearcats.

The 15 goals is the highest recorded by Binghamton since its 16-8 win at Hartford on April 1, 2006. Furthermore, Saturday's game against the Red Foxes marked the first time in school history that three Bearcat players recorded hat tricks in the same game.

Rurey's four goals and six points (he also had a pair of assists) are both career highs. Springer, meanwhile, has 11 goals in his last three games and leads Binghamton with 17 goals so far this season. Carlson now has four career hat tricks.

In the opening 15 minutes, Rurey scored three times as the Bearcats jumped out to a 6-2 lead. Springer and Carlson each added a goal during that span. Rurey and senior midfielder Andy Cook (who finished with two goals and an assist) each scored in the second quarter as the Bearcats took an 8-5 lead at the half.

Springer led the Bearcat attack in the third quarter with two goals. With 15 minutes remaining in regulation, the score was 12-5.

Carlson and Springer scored their final goals eight seconds apart in the fourth quarter, increasing the lead to 14-5 with nine minutes to go. Sophomore defender Ryan Button added the Bearcats' final tally three minutes later.

Sophomore faceoff specialist Jeff Donigan won 24 of the 27 faceoffs. In the process, he broke the school record of 19 faceoff wins, set by J.P. Wioncek against Sacred Heart on March 18, 2006. In addition, Donigan's .889 faceoff win percentage broke Wioncek's .863 mark (which he also set in the game against Sacred Heart four years ago).

Binghamton heads to Hobart on Tuesday for a 3:30 p.m. game.
