ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Freshman Ian King (Cincinnati, Ohio/St. Xavier) scored his school-record 26th and 27th goals of the season, but the University of Michigan men's lacrosse team fell to No. 13 Yale by a score of 13-7 Saturday(April 19) inside Michigan Stadium. King broke Trevor Yealy's previous mark of 26 scores set in 2012.
He scored the historic goal on a bounce shot in traffic with 2:33 left in the second quarter.
No. 13 Yale scored the first goal of the game, capitalizing on a man-up opportunity to take a 1-0 lead with 3:36 left in the first quarter. The Bulldogs scored again just 15 seconds later, when Conrad Oberbeck fed Brandon Mangan in the crease for a score.
The second quarter opened with another Yale goal, as Jeff Cimbalista scored off a pass from Mangan, giving the Bulldogs a 3-0 lead.
Michigan sophomore David Joseph (Westlake, Ohio/St. Ignatius) put the Wolverines on the board at the 11:54 mark of the second quarter, but Yale came back with three unanswered goals to take a 6-1 lead with 8:09 left in the half.
King scored a man-up goal with 5:11 remaining in the half to end the Bulldog run, good for his eighth man-up goal of the season. King scored again less than three minutes later for his record-breaking goal on a bounce shot making the score 6-3, as Yale rode three-score lead going into halftime.
The Bulldogs had the first three goals of the second half to lead 9-3, before Kyle Jackson (Sarnia, Ontario/The Hill Academy) scored on a shot from 15 yards out on a pick-and-pop from Joseph. This made the score 9-4 at the 6:26 mark of the third quarter, and Yale scored once more before the quarter ended, taking a 10-4 lead going into the fourth quarter.
U-M played the Bulldogs even in the final quarter, as sophomore/freshman Brendan Gaughan (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) scored his first career goal with 5:37 left in the game to cut U-M's deficit to 11-5. Two minutes later, junior Will Meter (Beverly Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) scored off a feed from Mike Hernandez (Piedmont, Calif./Piedmont) to make the score 12-6. With a little more than two minutes left to play, Gaughan scored again off a right wing crank from Hernandez to bring the score to 13-7. Yale scored once more after that, closing the game with a 13-7 lead.
Michigan recorded 40 shots to Yale's 32, and the Wolverines led in ground balls, 37-28. Freshman Robbie Zonino (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) recorded 10 saves, and Bobby Riso (North Potomac, Md./Thomas S. Wootton) appeared in his first career game at goalie.
The Wolverines wrap up regular-season action next Saturday (April 26) at noon, as the Wolverines play host to the Robert Morris Colonials. The contest will also serve as Senior Day, as U-M will honor their eight departing seniors.
