POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The University of Delaware scored three goals in the fourth quarter, including the game-winner with 1:53 left to defeat the Marist men’s lacrosse team 8-7 Wednesday afternoon at Tenney Stadium.

Mike Begley (Brookeville, Md.) and Jim Marks (Camillus, N.Y.) each scored two goals and Drew Nesmith (Montclair, N.J.) had a pair of assists. Connor Rice (Penfield, N.Y.), Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and Aedan Herman (Stafford, Va.) also all scored once. Dave Scarcello (Buffalo, N.Y.) tied a career-high with 12 saves in net for the Red Foxes.

Marist (7-2, 3-0 MAAC) came out a bit slow in the first quarter, falling behind 4-1 after the first 15 minutes. Begley scored an unassisted tally at the 5:46 mark of the opening period to get the Red Foxes on the board after Delaware (3-8, 0-3 CAA) had scored twice in a 43 second span to take a quick 2-0 lead.

After the Blue Hens scored with 14 seconds left in the first quarter, the Marist defense kept Delaware scoreless for the next 23:27. Goals by Marks and Begley, with the latter being assisted by Nesmith, brought the Red Foxes within one at 4-3 at the midway point.

Delaware won the face-off to open the third quarter, but promptly turned it over and Gannon Osborn (Canandaigua, N.Y.) scooped up the ground ball and fed it to Patrick Eaker (Redding, Conn.). He ran the length of the field for the clear and fed Doherty at the side of the net. Doherty stepped around a defenseman and buried his shot low into the back of the net to tie the score at four just 31 seconds into the quarter.

Nesmith found Marks for his second goal of the game at the 7:55 mark to give the Red Foxes their first lead of the game at 5-4.

Just 1:08 later however, Delaware knotted things back up at five.

Rice and Herman scored twice in a 1:26 span, both coming on 30-second warnings, to give Marist a 7-5 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Delaware scored twice in the first 3:30 of the final period to tie the score at seven before scoring the game-winner late.

Marist will rest this weekend before returning to the field next Saturday, April 13 when it travels to Jacksonville for a conference game. The Dolphins are currently tied with the Red Foxes at the top of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) with a 3-0 record.
