BUZZARDS BAY, Mass. – Wheaton College sophomore Brian Teague (Cross River, N.Y./Salisbury School) netted the game-winning goal at 3:17 in the second overtime to lift the Lyons past Massachusetts Maritime Academy, 8-7, on Wednesday evening in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) play.
Wheaton freshman Will Morrison (Osterville, Mass./Salisbury School) recorded a career-best four tallies, while classmate Devin Higgins (Nantucket, Mass./Nantucket) scored two goals. Sophomore Kyle Rumberger (Hyannis, Mass./Barnstable) matched Teague with one marker.
Morrison jumpstarted Wheaton's comeback with an unassisted strike at 8:26 in the third quarter, which initiated a 4-0 run that provided the Lyons with a 6-5 advantage heading into the final session. The Buccaneers responded with back-to-back tallies by sophomores Sean Staples (Norwell, Mass./Norwell) and Anthony Kurylak (Exeter, N.H./Portsmouth) to give the hosts a 7-6 differential with 8:17 remaining.
