Amherst did something Saturday that nobody had done for nearly two years – pin a regular-season loss on the Rochester Institute of Technology.
The battle between the Mammoths and No. 2 RIT as part of the Mustang Classic in Owings Mills, Md., was an instant classic, with the Mammoths rallying from five goals down at halftime to earn a 17-16 win.
“It was such a great lacrosse game,” said Amherst coach Jon Thompson. “That’s the way you hope it is when you play RIT. It was up and down; there were a couple giant swings of momentum. … It was fun as heck.”
