UNION – Junior Andy Hilton (Rochester, N.Y.) scored the winning goal with just over seven minutes remaining in the fourth period to give the College at Brockport a 7-6 win over Kean in men’s lacrosse action Saturday afternoon at Kean Alumni Stadium.
It was a see-saw affair throughout, with no team winning by more than two goals at any point in the match. Kean (3-4) took their first lead of the match in the third period as senior C.J. Gannon (Morris Plains) took a feed from junior J.R. Glita (Wayne) to put KU ahead, 5-4.
The Golden Eagles (3-1) would tie things up with 30 seconds to go in the third period and quickly went ahead, 6-5, off the opening faceoff for the fourth period. Just over a minute later, senior Anthony Bertucci (Edison) tied things up for the Cougars off a pass from Jazimar Bailey (Hoboken). But that would be as close as Kean would get, as Hilton scored what would be the game-winner with just over seven minutes to go in the match.
Kean held a 40-23 overall advantage in shots as well as a slight 26-23 edge in groundballs. The KU offense scattered the goals this afternoon as seven different Cougars found the back of the net.
The Cougars return to action on Wednesday evening when they face Centenary College at 7 p.m.
