Whippen Tallies Five, and No. 12 Massachusetts Defeats Army

Both teams would find the cage twice more before the first quarter ended with a 4-4 tie score. Glesener netted his second of the day, a man-up tally with 5:20 to go as Army took a 3-2 lead. Back-to-back UMass goals gave the home team a 4-3 edge with time winding down. Glesener then found Brennan for a 12-yard rip that would tie the score at 4-all to end the half.

The Minutemen opened the second quarter with three unanswered goals, taking a 7-4 lead with 3:47 to play in the half. Thul's lone goal of the day, a left-handed laser, came with 43 seconds on the clock and evaded a scoreless period for the Black Knights. Army entered the break trailing the Minutemen 7-5.

UMass proceeded to outscore the Black Knights 9-4 over the final 30 minutes to put the game out of reach. Van Krevel accounted for two of Army's second-half goals, along with Glesener completing his hat trick with a stinger from 17-yards out at the 8:23 mark of the third quarter. The Black Knights' fourth goal of the half came thanks to Newsome curling around the back of the crease for his third career score with 2:33 remaining in the third.

Continuing a span of three games in seven days to open 2013, Army looks to rebound with a pair of home games this week at Michie Stadium. The Black Knights host Manhattan on Wednesday at 3 p.m. and VMI next Saturday, Feb. 16, at noon.
