Jeff Cimbalista (La Salle) scored 14 seconds into overtime as the No. 6 Yale University men’s lacrosse team remained undefeated, beating St. John’s 11-10 on a snowy afternoon.
The Bulldogs, who last started 4-0 in 2011, received three goals from Conrad Oberbeck, now tied for 11th in school history with 137 points. Cimbalista and Michael Keasey scored twice in the victory.
St. John’s got on the board first 3:30 into the game. The goal was scored by Jason DeBenedictis assisted by Eric DeJohn (Syracuse, N.Y.).
Jason Alessi tied the game at one with 9:24 left in the opening period. The rookie’s third goal of the season was unassisted.
The Red Storm – which got six groundballs and a caused turnover from defenseman Mark DiFrangia (La Salle) – broke the deadlock when Stefan Diachenko capitalized off a failed clear attempt at the 9:01 mark. Thomas Marron was credited with the helper.
Monmouth 7, Wagner 3
Paced by three goals from sophomore Tyler Keen (Downingtown West), the Hawks posted their second straight victory with a win over Wagner at Monmouth Stadiumn. Keen, who now leads the team with six goals, has scored all six in Monmouth’s last two victories, including Saturday’s win at Rutgers.
The Hawks, who led 3-2 at the half, outscored the Seahawks 2-0 in the third and led 7-2 until Wagner scored its lone goal of the second half with 1:31 remaining in the contest.
“To get another win and our first at home feels great,” stated head coach Brian Fisher (Ridley). “We did not play a mistake free game, nor a perfect game, but I thought our intensity, focus and determination helped us pull through today to get another solid win.”
Sophomore Eric Berger (Penn Charter) notched a pair of assists for the Hawks, while senior goalkeeper Garrett Conaway, who entered the game ranked fifth in the NCAA in goals-against-average (6.50), made nine saves, allowing three goals, while facing 26 shots.
