Men's lacrosse in brief

It was the Garrett Billings show Saturday, as the Virginia men’s lacrosse team topped Stony Brook 20-10 in Long Island. The senior attackman scored eight goals to tie a school record for scores in a game, and also added three assists. His seventh netting of the game marked his 100th career goal and made him only the 11th Cavalier to reach the mark.

Virginia (3-0) got off to a quick start by scoring the first five goals of the game. Stony Brook was unable to respond until freshman Kyle Belton scored with 2.9 seconds left in the first quarter.

The Cavaliers then reeled off five unanswered goals to begin the second period and allowed only two Seawolf scores to head into halftime with a comfortable seven-goal lead.

While sophomore midfielder Rhamel Bratton contributed his first career hat trick, Virginia’s attack dominated the offensive charge, with Billings, senior Danny Glading and freshman Steele Stanwick combining for 10 goals and 11 assists total. Coach Dom Starsia also found an opportunity to exercise his team’s depth by playing 37 players. Sophomore midfielder Chris Clements and freshman attackman Matt Kugler took advantage of their increased playing time by scoring their first career goals.

The stick-wielding Cavaliers, seeking their fourth win in as many games this season, will return Tuesday to Klöckner Stadium to take on Mount St. Mary’s.
