The men's lacrosse team dropped a 10-7 non-league decision at Hood College Saturday afternoon.

FREDERICK, Md. – Host Hood College scored the game's final three goals on its way to a 10-7 non-league men's lacrosse victory over Shenandoah University Saturday afternoon.

After Michael Brooks scored unassisted for SU (1-2) with 9:16 to play to tie it at 7-7, Hood (1-1) answered with three straight goals to earn its first win over the Hornets since the 2012 season.

Shenandoah had won five straight over the Blazers since Hood's last victory.

The Blazers closing rally capped a contest in which the two teams traded the lead four times and were tied on four additional occasions.

After SU took a 3-1 lead with first quarter goals from Brooks and Orlando Levins followed by a Kyle Morien tally to start the second, Hood took its first lead by sandwiching a four-goal run around halftime.

Shenandoah answered with a three-goal run of its own to lead 6-5 with 4:45 remaining in the third, but this would be the Hornets final advantage.

Following that Zack Zimmerman-to-Davon Weaver tally at 4:45, HC scored with 1:50 left in the third to tie the contest at 6-6 and again 99 seconds into the fourth to lead 7-6.

Brooks, with his second goal of the game and team-leading sixth of the season, tied it for the final time with an unassisted goal at 9:16.

Hood scored the game-winner with 6:32 left.

Shenandoah outshot the Blazers 36-24, had a 28-24 advantage in groundballs and won 12-of-20 face-offs.

Goalkeeper Jason Simpson had all seven of his saves in the first half.

Brooks and Ryan Schott had two goals each with Zimmerman dishing out three assists.

The Hornets are back in action on Wednesday in a 4:00 non-league contest at Albright.
