Game Stats

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-- No. 3 Virginia went on a five-goal rampage in the decisive fourth quarter and defeated Binghamton (2-5) 10-7 in a non-conference men's lacrosse game on Tuesday afternoon at Klöckner Stadium. The Bearcats played valiantly but were unable to record their second-ever upset over a Top 10 program.

Sophomore attack Danny Glading, who finished the game with three goals, scored once and had an assist during the decisive fourth period. For Binghamton, sophomore attack Jake Boyce tied for the game high with three goals, marking his second hat trick in as many games. Freshman midfielder Steve Carlson (Penn Yan, N.Y.) added a goal and an assist.

Binghamton surprised the Cavaliers in the first half and took a 4-2 lead into the break. Carlson had his goal and assist during the first 30 minutes of play. Boyce, senior midfielder Nate Kerstein (Rochester, N.Y.) and senior midfielder Jeff Kaylor (Beverly, Mass.) had the other three goals.

The Bearcats showed no signs of letting up in the third quarter as Boyce took a feed from senior midfielder Jeff Santucci (Cicero, N.Y.) with 9:33 remaining to stretch the lead to 5-2. Just 38 seconds later, however, Danny Glading scored his second goal of the game to pull the Cavaliers back to within a pair of goals. From there, Virginia's offense reeled off two more goals to tie the game at 5-5 with 5:10 left to go in the third quarter.

Despite the setback, the Bearcats refused to go away, taking a 6-5 lead on an unassisted goal by sophomore midfielder Duncan Streeten (Corning, N.Y.) with 3:19 left in the third quarter. That set the stage for the pivotal fourth quarter.

The decisive run of the game started at the 13:00 mark on a goal by junior midfielder Will Barrow. In the ensuing 7:50, the Cavaliers took control of the game with three unanswered goals.

Boyce completed his hat trick with 4:40 left, pulling Binghamton to within 9-7. Sophomore midfielder Steve Giannone, however, gave Virginia an insurance goal with 3:34 remaining.

Binghamton returns home to host Vermont on Saturday at 1 p.m.
