Also in the Fairfield game, Colgate's John Donnally (Madison, Sr.) assisted on a goal and came by three ground balls, with one turnover caused. The Stags got a goal and an assist from Colin McLinden (Madison, Fr.), who also picked up a ground ball. Donnally also worked up five ground balls and caused a turnover in the Binghamton game. Colgate, now ranked 12th in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Ass'n. Coaches Poll, is 7-1.

Katie Leto (Chatham, Jr.) and Sam Lillo (Short Hills, Sr.) both scored a goal in Tuesday's Lafayette-Monmouth skirmish in Easton, Pa. The difference? Leto got to enjoy a short, enjoyable walk back to her dorm room after the Leopards' 15-9 win, while Lillo had time to ponder the loss on the bus ride back to West Long Branch. The win puts Lafayette at 6-4 for the campaign, while Monmouth dropped to 1-7.

Massachusetts' Melissa Carelli (Maplewood, Soph.) scored a goal on a free position shot in the Minutewomen's 19-7 loss to no. 1 Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. on Saturday. That was the first loss of the year for no. 19 UMass (7-1).

She previously had a 4-for-5 game at the plate as Massachusetts edged Chattanooga, 12-11, in Clearwater, Fla. on Saturday. Matthew, who roams centerfield on defense, had three singles and a double, and contributed to the seventh-inning rally that scored the winning run. Matthew touched home three times and drove in one run.
