The number 8 ranked NYIT Bears lacrosse team had its annual Senior Day on April 23rd at President’s Field and the team sent their seniors off in style with a 9-8 victory over the Seton Hill Griffins in East Coast Conference play. Prior to the game, families and friends of the 11 senior Bears gathered for a short ceremony to recognize the achievements of these student-athletes.

The Bears, who improved to 8-3 on the season and 6-2 in East Coast Conference play, were led by senior Mike Palmer’s hat trick. Graduate student Chris Lubin and senior Ryan Amengual added two goals each, while junior Joe Herman and freshman Cory Triola chipped in with one a piece. Triola’s second goal of the game turned out to be the game-winner.

The win in the goal went to junior Billy McGee who collected 20 saves on 30 shots faced. With the victory, McGee improved to 7-3 on the year. The Bears took a 1-0 lead with 12:12 to play on a goal from Palmer but the Griffins quickly responded with a man-up goal from Alex Hill. That was the only time the game was knotted as NYIT went on to score three in a row to claim a 4-1 advantage. Triola, Amengual and Palmer all scored in the spurt.

Both the second and third quarters were relatively quiet as NYIT continued to hold the upper hand with a 4-2 run. However, the Griffins were revived in the fourth quarter and had multiple opportunities to send the game into overtime. With 2:32 remaining Kevin Cala brought Seton Hill within one goal apart, 9-8. NYIT earned possession off the faceoff but a turnover after a called time out gave Seton Hill control with 1:44 to play.

Kevin Welty and Matt Delmonico peppered NYIT’s net but chief of homeland security McGee held strong and made impressive point blank saves. However, the Griffins would lose possession on a turnover by Welty with 32 seconds to play and NYIT would hold on for the win.

In addition to the win and celebration of the seniors, freshman Cory Triola was also named Rookie of the Week by the East Coast Conference. He notched his fourth hat trick of the season as he netted a game-best five goals to lead NYIT to a 17-11 victory over Chestnut Hill earlier this month.
