Sophomore star Tehoka Nanticoke did not play for the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team in Saturday’s 17-16 loss to third-ranked Cornell due to what an athletic department spokesman described as an “internal matter.”

Nanticoke did not travel with the team and his status for Tuesday’s game at Tom & Mary Casey Stadium against UMass is “undetermined.”

Nanticoke missed the fall semester at UAlbany for personal reasons. He scored 50 goals and 32 assists during his freshman season.

Connor Fletcher’s goal with 13.1 seconds left in regulation gave the Big Red the win and ruined a comeback that saw the Great Danes (1-2) overcome a 16-11 deficit. Jack Burgmaster’s goal with 1:13 to play tied it at 16-16.

“We just kept competing,” UAlbany’s head coach Scott Marr said. “That’s all we talked about it. It’s still early in the season for this young group, and I’m proud as heck of the effort.”

Jakob Patterson had three goals and three assists to lead the Great Danes. Kyle Casey had two goals and two assists, and Sean Eccles added three goals.

Austin Jones was dominant on faceoffs for the Great Danes, winning 25 of 37. Jones also had 14 ground balls.

“We didn’t stop all game,” Marr said. “We played right to the last second. We just talked about competing and executing. We have to work on the execution a little bit, but I thought we competed really well.”
