Engelke's 4th-OT goal wins for Towson, 10-9


Last year, Towson's Jonathan Engelke scored a national single-game-best eight goals against Villanova.

Last night, he scored only one goal, but it came in the fourth overtime as the Tigers outlasted the Wildcats, 10-9, in a Colonial Athletic Association game.

The win preserved Towson's perfect record against Villanova (6-4, 2-1), building its series mark to 13-0.

Although Engelke was the eventual hero, it was his teammates on the attack, Bobby Griebe and Steve Mull, and an aggressive defense that put the Tigers (7-3, 2-1) in position for the win.

Griebe scored a career-high five goals and Mull had a career-high five assists.

"That was a great lacrosse game," said Tigers coach Tony Seaman. "Both teams played phenomenal. Both goalies made saves throughout the overtimes. Nobody deserved to lose."
