Army Takes Down Bucknell in Overtime

from press release

LEWISBURG, Pa. - Army senior attackman Tyler Seymour scored the overtime game-winning goal off an assist from sophomore defender Larry LoRusso to steal a 7-6 victory from Bucknell in Patriot League lacrosse action Saturday night at Mathewson Memorial Stadium.

Bucknell went man-up with 1:58 to play in overtime following an unnecessary roughness penalty on the Black Knights (5-5, 3-0 PL).  After the restart, LoRusso checked the ball out of Bucknell sophomore attackman Charlie Streep's stick in front of the Army goal. Following a scrum, Army junior goalkeeper Tom Palesky came up with the loose ball and sent a long outlet pass down the right side of the field to a streaking LoRusso, who ran the ball into the Bucknell zone and hit a wide-open Seymour on the left side of the Bison goal where he beat freshman goalkeeper Kyle Feeney for the short-handed game-winner.

It was Army's second straight overtime victory after also taking an 11-10 OT victory at Colgate last Saturday at Michie Stadium. The victory also broke a five-game skid against the Bison (6-5, 1-3 PL).
