Shorthanded Goal Spurs Late RMC Comeback

Shorthanded Goal Spurs Late RMC Comeback

ASHLAND, Va. – A shorthanded goal spurred a Yellow Jacket rally, as Randolph-Macon came back from three down in the fourth quarter to edge the Bridgewater College men's lacrosse team 9-8.

Steven Cosgrove made it 7-4 Bridgewater with 14:11 remaining, and there were two slashing penalties on the play to give the Eagles a golden opportunity to add to their lead.

Things went the other way however, as RMC faceoff midfielder Miles Muncie won the draw and went right down to score 4-on-6.

That play kick-started a four-goal unanswered run, with Alex Camilliere scoring twice to tie it at 7-all and Sam Mayer giving Randolph-Macon the lead with 4:35 remaining.

Chris Voorhees tied it for the Eagles less than a minute later, but Camilliere would net the winner- his third goal of the fourth quarter and fifth overall- with 2:41 remaining.

Voorhees totaled four goals, with Daniel Brown contributing a goal and two assists.

Goalie Kevin Metzger had another solid game in the cage, totaling 13 saves and four ground balls. Nick Strider also picked up four ground balls while winning 12-of-19 faceoffs.

The Eagles had surged ahead in the third quarter. Trailing 4-2 with 11:18 on the clock, Brown assisted Voorhees to cut it to one. Voorhees then scored again off an assist from Sean MacLeish.

Justin Calabrese gave Bridgewater a 5-4 lead with 6:42 left in the third quarter, and Brown then scored to put BC ahead 6-4 heading into the final 15 minutes.

Bridgewater is 5-5, 1-2 ODAC and will travel to Washington & Lee on Wednesday as part of a three-game road trip- one that finishes at Guilford and Randolph with two games that loom large for the Eagles postseason hopes.
