Lakers Come Up One Goal Short Against Union County College

Lakers Come Up One Goal Short Against Union County College

CRANFORD, NJ. – The Lakers (1-3), in their latest game, fell to Union County College on Sunday by a mere goal. Finger Lakes, who fell 12-11 in the road contest, received 3 goals and 3 assists from midfielder Albert Thompson.

The Lakers, despite trailing 7-4 at the end of the second quarter, climbed their way back into the game in the third. Four third quarter FLCC goals closed UCC's lead heading into the fourth. UCC, after scoring a pair of helpers in the third, saw its lead shrink to 9-8 with one quarter to play.

Both teams played an even style of lacrosse in terms of scoring in the remaining quarter. Finger Lakes knotted the game at 11, but it would be UCC who would prevail as time expired. With just single-digit seconds left on the game clock, the hosts would find room for one more goal on the scoreboard. That marker would turn out to be the game deciding goal.

The Lakers, despite falling, received a solid flow of scoring out of their offense. In all, 8 members of FLCC's roster registered at least one point apiece on the afternoon.

Following Thompson in the point's column for the Lakers was Jack Timerson. The sophomore, on the day, recorded 4 goals in the losing effort. With his 4-goal effort, Timerson has now scored two or more goals in each game he has appeared in thus far this spring.

Brandon Grace found the net once and was on the passing end of a pair of assists for FLCC. Supplying the Lakers with one goal apiece were Robert Pelkey, Thomas Loudon, and Cullen Smith.

Parker Weeks and Joshua Spence each contributed one assist apiece for FLCC in the weekend matchup.

The Lakers will remain on the road for their next game. They will travel to Syracuse, NY this Wednesday for an evening pairing with Onondaga CC. The Lakers and Lazers will faceoff beginning at 6:00 p.m.
