Men's lacrosse roundup (March 12): UMBC defeats Marist in OT, 9-8

The UMBC men's lacrosse team rallied from a five-goal halftime deficit and prevailed, 9-8, over visiting Marist just six seconds into overtime on defenseman Garrett Hasken's first collegiate goal Saturday.

The Retrievers (1-3) allowed six consecutive goals and fell behind 7-2 after 30 minutes. But the hosts outscored the Red Foxes (1-3) 4-0 in the third quarter and tied the game at 7 and then at 8 late in the fourth quarter.


Hasken, a starter on close defense, was one of four Retrievers to take draws in the game and won four of six in regulation. In the extra period, he popped the draw forward and raced into the offensive zone. No defender slid to him and Hasken beat goalkeeper Brian Corrigan with a 7-yard shot to the keeper's stick side and just under the crossbar.

"We went [into the locker room] and said, 'We need to keep our poise, it's a long game and it's a 0-0 score right now,'" UMBC coach Don Zimmerman said. "Our offense started to work the ball and take better shots."
