The Game Story:
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Junior Frank Donlon scored two goals and dropped off an assist leading Binghamton (1-0) to a close 7-6 win over No. 20 Colgate (0-1) in a non-conference men's lacrosse game on a chilly Saturday afternoon at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The win was Binghamton's fifth win over a ranked team in program history.

Binghamton opened the game with quick goal from Donlon at the 13:46 mark in the first quarter. Colgate quickly answered with three goals before Donlon would get his second goal of the day just before the period ended to end the first 3-2 in Colgate's favor.

The Bearcats scored four of the next five goals, including a pair from freshman Matt Springer to take a 6-4 lead into the fourth.

The Raiders would strike back and freshman Peter Baum would complete his hat-trick with a goal at the 9:24 mark knotting the game at 6 apiece. However, freshman Tyler Perrelle would score the eventual game winner a little more than a minute later leading Binghamton to the win.

The Raiders out-shot Binghamton 28-27 and won 12 of the 17 face-offs. Each team had 27 ground balls.

Senior Steve Carlson and Junior David Raleigh also scored for the Bearcats, while Senior Andy Cook picked up an assist. Junior goalie Dan Solazzo made 12 saves in his debut.

Binghamton stays home to face LaFayette at noon on Saturday, February 27.
