The unranked Colgate men's lacrosse team scored four unanswered goals in the fourth quarter to upset No. 4 Navy, 6-3, yesterday in Hamilton, N.Y.

It was Navy's second loss in conference play since joining the Patriot League three years ago.

The Raiders scored three goals in a span of 1:59 in the final period.

Navy is the highest-ranked team Colgate has ever beaten.

The Raiders' goalkeeper, Andrew Jarolimek, had one of the strongest performances of his career and finished with nine saves.

Colgate (5-1, 1-0) dominated the pace of the game early on as Navy struggled to get the ball to the offensive end of the field.

The Mids (5-1, 2-1) had multiple clearing opportunities that went awry, most likely because of the strong winds and heavy snow in the opening period.

Navy was 0-for-4 on clear attempts before finally getting its first offensive possession after four minutes had elapsed.

The Mids were held scoreless for the final 17 minutes, while Colgate had an offensive explosion in the final quarter, scoring four goals on eight shots in the last 15 minutes.

Navy held a 33-24 advantage on shots and a 30-28 edge in groundballs over the Raiders.

The Colgate defense allowed the Mids to clear just 16 of 22 times. Colgate was successful on 17 of 19 clears.

The Raiders were 2-for-4 on man-up opportunities, while Navy was 0-for-1.

Billy Looney scored all three goals for the Mids and goalie Matt Russell had five saves.
