Sophomore Brian Teague’s goal 43 seconds into the second overtime lifted Wheaton to an 8-7 New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference men’s lacrosse victory over Massachusetts Maritime Wednesday.

Teague’s golden goal capped a second half comeback for the visiting Lyons (4-8, 1-3 NEWMAC), who trailed 5-2 at the break but roared back to take a 6-5 lead heading into the final frame with four unanswered third quarter tallies, the last on freshman Will Morrison’s marker with six seconds to play in the stanza. The host Buccaneers (7-6, 1-3 NEWMAC) evened matters with 9:44 remaining in regulation on sophomore Sean Staples’s goal and took a 7-6 advantage just 1:27 later on fellow sophomore Anthony Kurylak’s man-up marker, but Morrison knotted the score for Wheaton with 5:18 remaining in regulation to force the extra sessions. After a scoreless first overtime period, freshman Kyle Neale won his 10th face-off of the night for the Lyons, setting up Teague’s heroics on the game-winner.
