EASTON, Pa. - Lafayette’s late comeback came up short as Navy held on for a 12-11 victory on Saturday afternoon in Annapolis, Md. The Mids improve to 3-3 and 1-1 in the Patriot League, while the Leopards fall to 2-5 and 0-1 in the League.

Sophomore Brian Bock and freshman Kevin Wanke led the way for the Leopards with four goals apiece. Junior goalkeeper Jake Hyatt made 13 saves in the loss dropping to 2-5 overall.

The Mids were led by TJ Hanzsche, Sam Jones and Gabe Voumard with three goals each. Nolan Hickey made 13 saves for Navy to register his third win of the season.

Navy took a 2-0 lead with 12 minutes to play in the first quarter on goals less than a minute apart, but the Leopards were able to answer back with goals by Bock from sophomore Sonny Round and Wanke from Bock to close the first quarter tied at two.

Navy netted two of the next three goals, with Wanke tallying Lafayette’s lone goal of the second quarter. Lafayette went into the break, down 4-3.

After a quick goal from the Mids to start the second half, the Leopards rattled off three straight tallies. Bock scored back-to-back goals to tie the game at five, followed by another tally by Wanke to give Lafayette its first lead, 6-5.

The Mids went on to score three of the next four with freshman midfielder Brendan Dunlap netting his first collegiate goal to break up the Navy run at the 6:46 mark of the third quarter. Navy closed the third quarter with an 8-7 lead.

Bock tied the game for the Leopards to start the fourth-quarter scoring, but the Mids put in the next two goals, before Wanke slowed the run with his third goal to cut the Navy lead to 10-9. Navy’s next two goals gave the Mids a three-goal cushion with 2:18 left in the game.

A late rally from the Leopards on Wanke’s fourth goal and a tally from senior midfielder Greg Rau wasn’t enough to send the game to overtime, as Navy held on to beat the Leopards, 12-11 in Lafayette’s first Patriot League contest.

Lafayette is back in action on Saturday afternoon when the Leopards host Bucknell in their Patriot League home opener at 7 p.m. inside Fisher Stadium.
