UMBC Drops Lacrosse Opener After Fluke Overtime Goal

February 20, 2010 |

With just a minute remaining in the games third overtime Delaware attack Curtis Dickson’s scored his seventh goal after his shot bounced off a UMBC defender’s stick and slowly rolled into the goal past freshman goalie Adam Cohen, sinking UMBC 11-10.

The team’s offense really struggled to get going until the fourth quarter, only scoring four goals in the first half and going scoreless in the third quarter. But in the fourth quarter UMBC rallied off six goals, and at one point took the lead after junior midfielder Bobby Stockton scored two consecutive goals. However, Delaware matched those and went up with time winding down. Hoever, Stockton netted his third goal with just 36 second left in the game to tied it.

Both teams had plenty of chances to score in the first two overtimes, but neither team could manage to end the game, until Dickson went for his seventh goal in the third.

Senior Kyle Wimer made a switch to from midfield to attack and had a career high six points off three goals and three assists.

Also, in a pre-planned move senior Kevin Kohri started the game in goal but was replaced by highly touted freshman goalie Adam Cohen. Cohen showed a lot of potential but failed to save a shot in two quarters and three overtime periods.
