FREDERICKSBURG, VA - Senior midfielder Lee Thompson scored unassisted with 1:29 remaining to give the University of Mary Washington men's lacrosse team a 9-8 win over visiting Dickinson College on Saturday at the Battleground. The Eagles even their record at 2-2, while Dickinson drops to 0-2.
Dickinson scored first on a goal by Ed Boyd, but Mary Washington led, 2-1, after one quarter, thanks to goals by juniors Greg Rose and Dave Morris, whose tally was assisted by Mark Fiore. Dickinson scored three straight goals in the second quarter to take a 4-2 lead, but the Eagles answered with four straight goals by Matt Morrell, Morris, Fiore, and Dave Justen, to hold a 6-4 halftime lead.
