Alex Demopoulos totaled three goals and three assists, as Denver broke away in the second half for a 17-13 victory over the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team Saturday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. The Great Danes were playing their season opener.

Denver (1-2) broke a 9-9 tie in the third quarter by scoring four straight times. Todd Baxter hit the back of the net off Demopoulos’ assist with 8:59 left in the period. Charley Dickenson and Patrick Rogers followed with unassisted goals and freshman attack Colin Scott ended the outburst. Dem­opoulos capped the decisive eight-goal quarter by finishing off a pair of shots in the last 34 seconds of the period.

The Pioneers won for the first time under former Princeton coach Bill Tierney, who took his current position last summer after winning six national titles at his former school. John Dickenson and Cameron Flint broke a 7-7 halftime deadlock by converting in man-advantage situations 26 seconds apart. UAlbany (0-1) rallied behind goals by Dave Brock and Kyle Brunk. The game featured three lead changes and six ties to that point.

“They did a good job of capitalizing on our mistakes,” said UAlb­any coach Scott Marr, whose team dropped a 10-9 decision to Denver in last year’s opener. “They did a better job of scoring off our turnovers than we did on theirs. We had a chance to go up 10-9 in the third quarter and just missed the goal. They came back and scored, got the momentum, and things snowballed.”

UAlbany’s Pompo had three goals and two assists, while Brock and Kreuzer each scored three times.
