POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (www.lafayette.edu) - Andrew Walsh scored with 32 seconds left in the second overtime to give Marist an 8-7 victory over Lafayette on Tuesday night at Leonidoff Field.

Sean Burek scored all three of Lafayette's goals in the first half, each time answering a score by the Red Foxes, before Marist netted a pair of goals in the final 3:56 of the second quarter to lead 5-3 at intermission.
Ortolano scored the only goal of the third quarter with help from Andrew Horton with 9:33 left in the period, and Stinson leveled the score at 5-5 2:59 into the final stanza.

Ortolano's tying score came 49 seconds after Marist went ahead on Hautau's third goal of the game. The match was scoreless for 11:41 until Walsh delivered the game-winner.
Lafayette (2-8) held a 41-29 advantage in shots to offset a 14-6 edge in face-offs by Marist (5-4). Both teams were efficient in the clearing game, but the Red Foxes converted three-of-five man-ups opportunities while Lafayette was unsuccessful on its only extra-man chance.
