The UMBC men’s lacrosse team fell to 1-6 with their fourth straight loss to a nationally ranked team as they fell to Stony Brook, 14-11.
In their America East Conference opener the team fell behind by a quick three goals and were outscored 5-2 in the first quarter.
After that the team was able to match Stony Brook goal-for-goal, scoring nine, but the three early goals by Stony Brook proved to be the difference.
Jordan McBride scored six goals off six shot for Stony Brook while Kevin Crowley has three goals and two assists and Robbie Campbell had one goal and four assists.
Stony Brook goalie Charlie Paar had 15 saves in just over 58 minutes of action.
After falling behind 3-0 the Retrievers finally got on the board when Matt Latham scored his first of four goals after scooping up a blocked shot by Jamie Kimble.
But the Stony Brook offense did not back down as they were able to put up six more goals in the first half.
UMBC was able to score four straight goals (two at the end of the first half and two more at the beginning of the second half) to get UMBC within one, 9-8, but were outscored 5-3 the rest of the game.
Kimbles and Kyle Wimer each scored two goals in the game. Wimer extended his nation-leading scoring streak to 26 straight games.
The Retrievers will return to action with a game against Towson on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
