Binghamton men's lacrosse falls to No. 12 Maryland 15-6

Box score

COLLEGE PARK, MD.-- Nine goals in the opening 18 minutes of play proved to be more than enough for No. 12 Maryland (7-5) to defeat visiting Binghamton (2-10) 15-6 in non-conference men's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon at Ludwig Field. The Bearcats have now faced five nationally-ranked opponents in their past six games.

The Terps controlled the tempo from the start, with three goals in a span of 1:26 to go up 3-0 just four minutes into the game. Junior attack Andy Cook cut the deficit to 3-1 at the 7:31 mark of the opening quarter but Maryland responded with eight straight goals to go up 11-1 with 3:20 left in the first half. Senior attack Chris Mulheron, who finished the game with a goal and two assists, made the score 11-2 on a goal at the 2:50 mark of the second quarter.

Things settled down in the second half, with each team scoring twice in both the third and fourth quarters.

Maryland outshot Binghamton 37-30 but the most telling statistic of the game was the Terps' 53-20 advantage in ground balls. The Bearcats also struggled defensively, with 10 failed clears in 24 overall attempts.

Binghamton heads to Stony Brook on Saturday for a 7 p.m. game.
