NEWARK, Del. -- In a season that has already seen its share of heartbreaking losses, this one just might have been the toughest for the University of Delaware men's lacrosse.

The Blue Hens took an 8-5 lead midway through the final stanza, but Binghamton raced back and scored the game's final four goals, including the game-winner by Tyler Perrelle with just 19 seconds left to play, to post the 9-8 victory.

Delaware (2-5), which is now 0-3 at home this season will all three losses coming by a single goal, gained the lead late in the second quarter and stayed in front deep into the final quarter. When Delaware's Connor McRoy (at right) scored his second goal of the game with 7:10 remaining,, the Hens had built their biggest lead of the game at 8-5.

But Binghamton (2-2) stormed back, scoring two consecutive man-up goals just two minutes apart and tying the game with 1:47 on a goal by Perrelle. Perrelle then scored the game-winner with 19 seconds left to play.

McRoy finished with two goals and three assists for the Blue Hens with teammates Nick Diachenko and Brian Kormondy also scoring twice. Blue Hens sophomore goalkeeper Chris Herbert was brilliant in the nets, posting a career-high 16 saves.

Binghamton got two goals from Matt Springer while Michael Antinozzi had a goal and an assist and Tucker Nelson dished our four assists.
