PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State University overcame a 5-1 deficit Wednesday afternoon and came back to defeat Lasell College, 9-7, in non-conference men’s lacrosse action at Panther Field, PSU’s final game of the regular season.

Junior Adam Krinsky (Concord, N.H.) led the Panther attack, scoring three goals and assisting on two others. Freshmen Wes Downing (Glastonbury, Conn.) also scored twice for PSU and junior midfielder Mike Russell (Concord, N.H.) collected two assists. Juniors Dan Maiorana (Walpole, Mass.), Tony Aguiar (Northborough, Mass.) and John Cogswell (Jefferson, Mass.) and sophomore Jordan Buzzell (Bath, Maine) each added a goal in the victory.

Lasell outscored the home team 4-1 in the first quarter and opened the scoring in the second frame to take a 5-1 advantage. PSU regrouped and pulled to within two goals (6-4) by halftime, and Krinsky scored the only two goals of the third quarter to even the score at 6-6 after three. The Panthers scored the first two goals of the fourth quarter to go ahead 8-6; Lasell get back to within one with nine minutes remaining, but Plymouth State added an insurance goal with less than three minutes to play, then ran out the clock.
