Binghamton men's lacrosse loses 17-16 to No. 17 Stony Brook

Box score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Jordan McBride scored a game-high seven goals, including the game winner with 2:56 left in regulation, as No. 17 Stony Brook (8-3, 3-0 AE) outlasted Binghamton (3-9, 0-3 AE) 17-16 in an America East Conference men's lacrosse game at the Bearcats Sports Complex on Saturday evening. The game marked the highest-scoring contest in the three year history of Binghamton's home facility.

McBride's performance overshadowed a record-setting day by senior midfielder Andy Cook , who finished with a career-high six goals and four assists. His 10 points breaks the school record of eight point, which was established by senior attack Jeff Rurey against Lehigh back on March 30.

Junior midfielder Frank Donlon added three goals and an assist while freshman attack Matt Springer had two goals and three assists. Rurey scored twice as did senior midfielder Steve Carlson.

Cook and McBride each recorded a hat trick during a wild first quarter in which Binghamton outscored Stony Brook 6-5. After McBride scored just 22 seconds into the contest, the Bearcats errupted for six straight goals to go up 6-1 with 4:58 left in the first quarter. The Seawolves, however, roared right back with four goals in a span of 2:21 to pull within 6-5 with 2:37 still left in the opening period.

In the second quarter, Cook netted his fourth goal of the game, giving Binghamton an 8-6 lead with 12:02 left before halftime. Stony Brook responded with three unanswered goals to go up 9-8 with 4:35 left in the second quarter. Freshman attack Matt Springer, however, stopped the run with the game-tying goal with 1:47 left in the period.

Each team scored four times in the third quarter, as the game was deadlocked at 13-13 heading into the final 15 minutes. Cook netted his fifth goal of the game and Tom Compitello of Stony Brook had a goal and an assist during that span.

The Bearcats went up 16-14 with 6:35 left in the fourth quarter on Cook's sixth and final goal of the game. McBride answered just 31 seconds later and Kyle Belton deadlocked the game at 15-15 with 4:25 left to go. That set the stage for McBride's game-winner.

Binghamton outshot Stony Brook 44-30 but the Seawolves won 28 of the 36 faceoffs.

The Bearcats head to Hartford next Saturday for a 7 p.m. game.

NOTE: The previous record for the highest scoring men's lacrosse game at the Bearcats Sports Complex was a 16-15 loss to Lehigh on March 30 in the same game Rurey had eight points (all goals).
