Three goals in the fourth quarter for UMBC (1-1) was the difference as the Retrievers came from behind to defeat Mt. St. Mary's, 7-5, at Golibart Field in Emmitsburg, MD. Junior Adam Shiley scored three goals and senior Gavin Stringer added a pair of goals and an assist in the win. Mount jumped out to a 3-0 first quarter lead, before UMBC cut the deficit to 3-2 at halftime. The teams each scored twice in the third quarter, as UMBC's Josh Gerber ended the stanza to get UMBC to within 5-4.
