This past Wednesday at President’s Stadium, the NYIT Bears Lacrosse team won 17-13 over the Dominican Chargers in conference play. This was a game in which they made a comeback to win. The Bears were led by freshman Cory Triola who scored 7 goals in the victory. Also, in his first appearance in goal, freshman Scott Spencer earned the win for the Bears after he subbed in for starter Billy McGee in the second half. Spencer made seven saves in 33:57 minutes played and faced three goals.

The Bears took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter with goals from Chris Lubin, Ryan Amengual, and Cory Triola. The Chargers later came back to take a 6-3 lead and later took a 10-6 lead into halftime.

After having a break, Cory Triola came back to rescue the Bears from the Chargers by scoring back-to-back goals to make it a 10-8 contest. Both goals were set up by Chris Lubin. Although the Chargers continued to dominate the game, a different Bears’ squad was on the field in the second half. The Bears rallied to tie the game at 12 with back-to-back goals from Chris Lubin. Lubin’s pair of scores were 38 seconds apart. Yet, Dominican would have the final say in the third quarter as a goal put the Chargers up by one, 13-12.

The Bears then owned the fourth quarter as they kept the Chargers at bay while scoring five goals for the win. NYIT evened the score with 12:28 to play on a shot from Keith Clancy. Once again, Lubin set up Triola twice for two goals within a minute to take a 15-13 lead over Dominican. Sophomore A.P. Nist and Amengual then closed out the match for NYIT. Nist scored on a man-up opportunity at 4:50 and Amengual had the final tally mark with 3:24 minutes remaining. The Bears return to action on Saturday, April 16th against Chestnut Hill College. Faceoff is slated for 1 p.m. at President’s Stadium. All results for the NYIT Lacrosse team can be found at
