BALTIMORE, Md. - Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) scored with one second remaining in overtime leading the Marist men's lacrosse team to a thrilling 10-9 victory over Towson Friday night. The win moved the Red Foxes to 4-0 on the season.

Doherty scored a team-high four goals on the night and Drew Nesmith (Montclair, N.J.) registered four points on three goals and an assist. Joseph Radin (Long Beach, N.Y.) had a goal and an assist and long-stick midfielder Patrick Eaker (Redding, Conn.) scored his first career goal. Dave Scarcello (Buffalo, N.Y.) made 12 saves in the Marist goal, including two in the overtime period.

Nesmith got the Red Foxes on the board first, scoring just thirty seconds into the game on an unassisted tally.

Towson (2-4) scored the next two goals to take a 2-1 lead with 11:04 left in the first quarter, but Mike Begley (Brookeville, Md.) evened things up at the 6:56 mark on an assist by Aedan Herman (Stafford, Va.). Nesmith put Marist back on top off of a feed from Jim Marks (Camillus, N.Y.) just two minutes later.

Towson scored twice in the final 2:08 of the quarter to reclaim the lead and once again just 1:30 into the second quarter to go ahead by two at 5-3.

Eaker scored his first career goal at the 11:52 mark to pull Marist within one with 10:14 left in the half.

After a Towson goal, Doherty scored his first of the night, on an assist from Connor Rice (Penfield, N.Y.).

However, Towson answered just 36 seconds later to again take a two-goal lead at 7-5, with 4:05 left before halftime.

Nesmith completed his hat trick with a man-up goal with 1:38 remaining to bring the score to 7-6. That score stood at halftime.

Radin evened the score just 1:28 into the third quarter and Doherty put Marist back in the lead with 7:46 on the clock with an unassisted goal.

Towson scored twice in an 11-second span to retake the lead, but Doherty knotted things back up at nine with a goal assisted by Radin at the 3:54 mark.

The two teams remained scoreless through the fourth quarter as Scarcello made four saves to keep the Tigers off the board, setting up Doherty's heroics in overtime.

Marist returns home next Saturday, March 16 to open conference play against Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference opponent Detroit.
