    Men’s Lacrosse Beats Binghamton

    The Men’s Lacrosse team had a back-and-forth night, including an 8-1 run and a 6-goal lead shrink to 2 within 5 minutes. The Seawolves still prevailed with an 11-8 win over their rival Binghamton Bearcats. The win pushes to their record to 7-3 overall and 2-2 in conference play. SB currently sits in a tie for 3rd with Binghamton in the 6-team conference.

    The first 9:20 of the game was scoreless until Binghamton’s Jeff Rurey put the team on the board. Eight seconds later, junior attack Bo Tipodi answered, assisted by senior attack Sean Chamberlain. The two connected twice more to put SB up 3-1 at the end of the first.

    Bryan Johansmeyer went down late in the 1st quarter after Binghamton’s Tom Wilmot slammed into him. At press time, the report was that Johansmeyer, who was helped off the field after being down for several minutes, may have a concussion. Wilmot was given a 2-minute penalty for an illegal body check and SB’s 3rd goal was scored on the resulting man up situation.

    In the 2nd, Owen Adams and Larry Cerasi each scored, putting SB up 5-1. With just over a minute left in the half, Binghamton’s Rob Williams scored, to make it 5-2 at halftime. Williams, a substitute, led the Bearcats in scoring with four goals.

    In the 3rd, the teams combined for 9 goals. SB scored three to put themselves up 8-2. Williams answered with three goals, assisted twice by Jake Boyce. Both are New York natives. Binghamton would score two more goals in the period, while SB would only one more thanks to Tripodi and Robert Trenkle.

    The Seawolves lead was now down to 9-7 going into the final quarter. However, SB was able to shut them down, holding them to just one more goal which came late in the quarter. Two SB goals earlier in the quarter were enough to seal Binghamton’s fate.

    The Seawolf offense was led by Tripodi and Chamberlain who each had 5 points. Tripodi scored four goals, and Chamberlain three. Goalie Brendan Callahan had 15 saves, and only eight goals against.

    Head Coach Rick Sowell said he ‘knew they would make a run,’ referring to the Binghamton comeback in the 3rd. He added that they ‘played the way they practiced all week.’

    The Seawolves travel to nearby Hempstead to take on local rival Hofstra on Tuesday. The game starts at 7PM.
