Men’s LAX Outlasts Binghamton

It took a late strike from Seawolves junior Jordan McBride, but the #14/#14 Stony Brook men’s lacrosse team defeated the Binghamton Bearcats, 17-16, in Vestal, N.Y. on Saturday, retaining its position atop the conference standings.

McBride had a game-high seven goals, including the game-winner with 2:55 left on the clock, in the Seawolves’ fourth-straight victory.

Senior goaltender Charlie Paar made 11 saves for Stony Brook (8-3, 3-0), including two in the final minute.

Binghamton (3-9, 0-3) led for much of the game, and the Bearcats scored with 6:31 left in the fourth quarter to take a two-goal lead.

But junior Adam Rand won the ensuing faceoff for the Seawolves, and 27 seconds later Stony Brook was back within one courtesy of McBride, who was assisted by junior Kevin Crowley.

Binghamton would have another chance following McBride’s goal, but Stony Brook successfully cleared and sophomore Kyle Belton finished it with 4:25 to play to pull the Seawolves back to equal footing.

Rand again won the faceoff and the Seawolves laid siege to the Bearcats goal.

Crowley missed wide and sophomore Robbie Campbell missed high before McBride finally found net with 2:55 left in the game.

Stony Brook repelled all invaders over the final three minutes, with Paar making two saves in the final minute to seal the win.

Rand, one of the top faceoff men in the country, was phenomenal once again from the ‘X,’ winning 28-of-36.

The Seawolves now have a long break before playing Albany away on April 24, then returning home for the regular-season finale against Vermont on May 1.
