The Binghamton men’s lacrosse team scored its first victory of the 2011 campaign, 11-7, over the host Canisius Golden Griffins (0-3) at the Demske Sports Complex on March 5. Six different Bearcats registered a goal while four different players notched an assist to pace Binghamton’s highest-scoring contest of the season.
Binghamton’s two captains on the offensive side combined for six of the squad’s 11 goals. In a breakout performance, senior David Raleigh rattled off a game-high four goals. Fellow captain Frank Donlon scored a pair of goals, each of which directly followed a score from Raleigh.
“I thought we had some really good leadership out there today,” head coach Ed Stephenson said. “David [Raleigh] had a breakout game for us and every time the game got close, he put his mark on the game. Overall, it was a great effort from our team.”
Sophomore attackman Matt Springer was the third Bearcat to post a multi-goal performance as he scored twice and assisted on Donlon’s second goal of the game to open the fourth quarter. With three points on the day, Springer extended his consecutive game-scoring streak to 18 straight with a point, dating back to Feb. 20, 2010. His streak warrants national recognition as he ranks among the top-20 national leaders for consecutive games with a point.
