FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s lacrosse team rebounded from Monday’s loss with a four-goal victory over another former conference opponent Saturday afternoon. St. Mary’s College (10-3) picked up a 14-10 non-conference win on the road over the University of Mary Washington (8-7) behind three-goal performances from senior captain Abe Hubbard (Owings, Md./Northern) and first-year attackman Aiden Doyle (Arnold, Md./Broadneck).

How It Happened

  • Mary Washington staked a 2-1 lead in the first period as the Eagles sandwiched a goal by Jack Brocato (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul’s School).

UMW scored twice in 50 seconds before Hubbard found the back of the net with his second of the afternoon with 16 ticks on the clock to send the game into halftime tied at 5-all.
  • It was back-and-forth once again in the third frame as the Seahawks notched the first two goals of the second half before Mary Washington scored the next two. St. Mary’s then tallied three of the next five goals to go into the final period with a 10-9 lead after Garrett Keough netted a man-up goal for the Eagles with three seconds left.
  • The Seahawk defense limited UMW to just one goal in the fourth as St. Mary’s outscored the hosts, 4-1, in the final 15 minutes, including the game’s last three goals over the final eight minutes.
