Lacrosse: UAlbany needs OT to run table in America East

BALTIMORE — Kyle McClancy scored in overtime to give the UAlbany men 15-14 victory over UMBC Saturday afternoon, as the Great Danes earned their fourth straight perfect America East regular season.

UAlbany (6-0, 12-2) appeared to have the game well in hand, leading 13-8 after three quarters, but UMBC outscored the Great Danes 6-1 in the fourth quarter to force overtime.

“Give [UMBC] a ton of credit for sticking with their gameplan and playing really hard in the second half,” UAlbany coach Scott Marr said.

UAlbany is the first program to earn a perfect America East regular season four straight times since Hofstra from 1995-98. UAlbany has won its last 22 America East regular season games and 28 games against America East opponents.

Seth Oakes tied a career-high with six goals, while Connor Fields had three goals and three assists.

For UMBC (4-10, 1-5 AE), Nate Lewnes set a program record with 10 goals, including the final four for the Retrievers.

UAlbany will now get set for the America East tournament, playing in its first game on 7 p.m. Thursday at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium.
