MEN'S LACROSSE OFF TARGET IN 8-6 LOSS AT #18 TOWSON
UMBC, which had averaged 13 goals over the last four games, outshot
The Tigers built the lead to 5-2 and held that advantage until late in the third quarter when the Retriever began their surge. Junior midfielder Andy Gallagher scored a man-up goal with 1:10 to play in the third stanza and sophomore attackman Drew Westervelt cut the deficit to 5-4 on another extra-man score just 32 seconds in the fourth quarter. After UMBC killed off a one-minute penalty, Westervelt knotted the game at 5-all, converting a Hyland feed with 10:25 remaining.
But the deadlock lasted less than one minute as Brian Vetter’s shot with 9:28 to play triggered a 3-0 Tiger rally. TU’s Bobby Griebe scored twice in a two-minute span before Gallagher countered for UMBC with 4:52 remaining. UMBC controlled the ensuing draw and had three shots, but
Hyland led UMBC with a goal and 2 assists, while Westervelt and Gallagher had a pair of goals, and Mundorf added a goal and an assist. It was Mundorf’s fewest point total in a game this season, but he maintained his goal scoring streak at 23, and he has multiple points in 20 straight.
UMBC netminder Kevin Cepelak made 9 saves for UMBC as the Retrievers dropped to 0-4 in games decided by 3 goals of less in 2005. The Retrievers are also 0-4 when allowing the game’s first goal.
