Miles Thompson Holds Longest Active Goal Scoring Streak in DI Men’s Lacrosse
ALBANY, N.Y. – Having scored at least one goal in each of his last 30 games played, UAlbany attackman Miles Thompson has the longest active goal-scoring streak in Division I.
The streak became Thompson’s after the previous leader, Tommy McKee of Air Force, has held without a goal against Fairfield, snapping his streak of 33 games.
Thompson’s streak started on May 2, 2012 with a five-goal performance at UMBC. Including that game, Thompson has tallied 123 goals in his 30 games played.
In comparison, currently second on the active goal-scoring streak in Matt Springer of Binghamton with a 27-game streak, tallying 73 goals in that time.
Thompson continued that streak this weekend with a pair of seven-goal performances against Stony Brook and UMBC. This season, he has scored at least four goals in 11 of UAlbany’s 16 games.
In addition, Thompson has scored a point in each of his last 51 games played, the third-longest active streak in DI. He has scored 258 points in that time.
