By Matt Noonan
Endicott College men’s lacrosse head coach Eric Hagarty earned his first official win on the sidelines as the Gulls earned a dramatic 13-12 double-overtime win against 14th ranked Union College on Wednesday afternoon.
Peter Field Jr. netted the game-winning goal in the second overtime session to snap an early two-game skid.

Field Jr. finished with four goals, Colin Bannon recorded a trio of goals and assists, and Cameron Bell stopped 10 shots. Bannon was credited with the assist on the game-winning goal.
Endicott will enjoy a six-day layoff before facing sixth-ranked Middlebury College on Tuesday, March 8 at 5:00 p.m.
