The Game Story:
BINGHAMTON, N.Y.--Junior midfielder Raweras Mitchell, senior attacker Phil Lavoie and freshman midfielder Garett Kilkot each netted three goals, leading Hartford (8-5, 4-0 AE) to a 13-7 win over Binghamton (3-7, 1-4 AE) in an America East Conference men's lacrosse game on Saturday afternoon. The visiting Hawks broke open a 5-5, third quarter tie with five consecutive goals to take the lead for good.

Hartford took a 2-0 lead into the second quarter before the Bearcats errupted for three goals in a span of 5:02 in the second quarter. Freshman attacker Phil Cavallo (Cedarhurst, N.Y./ Lawrence), who finished the game with a team-high three goals, scored twice during that span. The other goal was scored by freshman midfielder Aaron LaFlair (Watertown, N.Y./ General Brown. The Hawks, however, rebounded with two goals in the final two minutes to take a 4-3 lead at the break. Binghamton wasted little time in tying the game up at 4-4 as junior defender Chris Healy (Freeport, N.Y.) sprinted the length of the field and scored an unassisted goal with just 1:08 elapsed in the third quarter. After Kikot put Hartford ahead 5-4 five minutes into the quarter, senior defender Tyler Moore knotted the game up at 5-5 just 54 seconds later.

In the ensuing eight minutes, the visiting Hawks went on their five-goal rampage. Mitchell scored twice and Kikot scored on goal during that span. The Bearcats would get a third goal from Cavallo as well as a goal from Brian Chaapel (Penn Yan, N.Y./ Penn Yan Academy) but would get no closer than five goals for the rest of the game.
