T.J. Hanzsche (Malvern Prep), Gabe Voumard (St. Augustine Prep) and Sam Jones each had hat tricks to lead host Navy to a 12-11 victory over Lafayette Saturday in a Patriot League contest at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
The win snapped a three-game skid by the Mids that featured a pair of one-goal losses to Fairfield and Georgetown. Meanwhile it also extended Navy’s home-game winning streak to four in a row dating back to last year’s regular-season finale against Johns Hopkins.
The Mids improve to 3-3 and 1-1 in the Patriot League, while the Leopards fall to 2-5 and 0-1 in the League.
Sophomore Brian Bock (Spring-Ford) and freshman Kevin Wanke led the way for the Leopards with four goals apiece. Junior goalkeeper Jake Hyatt made 13 saves in the loss dropping to 2-5 overall.
Binghamton 9, Delaware 8
In a season that has already seen its share of heartbreaking losses, this one just might have been the toughest for the Blue Hens.
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.
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 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. The Bearcats then won the ensuing faceoff and ran out the clock to win their second straight game.
McRoy finished with two goals and three assists for the Blue Hens with teammates Nick Diachenko scored twice and dished out an assist and Brian Kormondy scored twice for his fourth multi-goal effort of the season. Blue Hens sophomore goalkeeper Chris Herbert was brilliant in the nets, posting a career-high 16 saves. Delaware’s leading scorer, senior Eric Smith, was held without a point, snapping a streak of 24 straight games with a point that dated back to the 2011 campaign.
