Senior Jamie Lincoln tied a season-high with five goals as No. 10 Hofstra topped host Towson, 12-5, in a CAA men's lacrosse game Saturday.
It was the third straight win for the Pride (8-1, 2-1 CAA).
Hofstra is trying to keep pace with Delaware (7-3, 3-0), which remained undefeated in conference play with a 9-7 win over Drexel Saturday, and Penn State.
The Nittany Lions (5-4, 2-0) topped Lehigh, 8-7, in overtime of a non-conference game Saturday.
Towson took a 3-2 lead with 1:59 left in the first half on a goal by Matt Damon.
However, Lincoln scored twice and Stephen Bentz added a goal and an assist as Hofstra went on a 7-0 run over the next 16 minutes and led 9-3 with 56 seconds left in the third quarter.
Pride goalkeeper Andrew Gvozden had eight saves in the win.
Matt Lamon led Towson (2-6, 0-2) with two goals and Sean Maquire added a goal and an assist. Towson pulled to within 9-4 with 14:31 left in the fourth after Peter Mezzanotte fed Maquire for a score.
But Jay Card, Lincoln and Bentz each scored goals over the next 10:29 to give Hofstra a 12-4 lead with 4:12 left.
Lincoln had five goals earlier this season in Hofstra's loss to Harvard, while Card, a senior, has scored at least one point in 37 straight games for the Pride.
