UMBC lacrosse ends losing streak, beats Binghamton 12-6

UMBC scored a season-high 12 goals and pulled away in the second half against Binghamton in Vestal, N.Y., ending a six-game losing streak and offering some hope of a late-season turnaround for the Retrievers (2-7, 1-1 America East Conference.)

Now that the streak is over, perhaps UMBC lacrosse can focus on finishing the conference schedule strong and making a run into the America East Tournament.

Retrievers sophomore attackman Rob Grimm scored three goals and added a pair of assists for a career-high five points. Meanwhile, freshman Adam Cohen made six saves in goal. Cohen has been the starter in both of UMBC's wins this season.

The game was actually tight for a half, as the Retrievers came off the field with a 4-2 lead. But UMBC scored the first five goals of the third quarter to take control of the game.

While it may have taken significantly longer than planned, the Retrievers' second win of the season marked UMBC coach Don Zimmerman's 200th career victory. Zimmerman is the 11th active coach with 200 or more wins.
