Niskayuna graduate Mark Panneton capped a superb season with the Stevenson University men’s lacrosse team Sunday by scoring five goals in the Mustangs’ 16-14 NCAA Division III championship-game win over RIT.

Panneton, a high school All-American and Empire State Games participant, was named the D-III tournament’s Most Outstanding Player after connecting for 16 goals in Stevenson’s five victories.

Stevenson (Maryland) set a program record for wins, going 22-2, and ended on a 10-game winning streak. The Mustangs won their first NCAA championship.

Panneton had 62 goals and seven assists to go with 44 ground balls. The sophomore attackman’s 62 goals are No. 2 on the all-time Stevenson single-season list. Only two other Mustangs reached 60 goals.

The business communications major scored at least one goal in every game, and had as many as eight in a game, against Hood in a 22-3 triumph.

Panneton was twice named a Suburban Council first-team all-star.

LACROSSE SCORING

Blogged the other day about boys' lacrosse teams that had scored 20 goals or more in Section II tournament games.

Add Queensbury to the list. The Spartans beat Scotia-Glenville in the 2001 Class B championship game, 20-5.

Niskayuna became the second team to pile up 20 goals in a title game when it beat Ballston Spa for the Class B top spot Saturday, 20-4.

As for the Section II girls' championship games, the record for goals scored is also 20. Scotia-Glenville beat Albany Academy in the 1996 Division II final, 20-12, and Niskayuna beat Averill Park in the 2007 Class B final, 20-5.
