Remarkable Towson Rally Ends in 2OT Win at Hofstra

Posted on 01 April 2012 by WNST Staff

TIGERS PULL OFF STUNNING RALLY IN 10-9 2OT WIN

Justin Mabus Scores Game-Winner With 38 Seconds Left In Second Overtime

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Freshman Justin Mabus scored the game-winning goal off a pass from senior Matt Lamon with 38 seconds left in the second overtime period as Towson University (7-3, 2-0) pulled off a stunning 10-9 Colonial Athletic Association comeback victory over No. 20 Hofstra University (4-5, 1-2) at Shuart Stadium on Saturday night.

The Tigers’ victory capped off a frantic rally in which they erased a 9-3 deficit in the final 11:27 of the game.

In the second overtime period, the Tigers received a great opportunity to win when senior Mike DeNapoli of Hofstra was called for two penalties, an illegal cross-check and an unsportsmanlike conduct. That gave the Tigers a man-advantage for two minutes. After the Tigers missed their first two shots, Mabus drilled an eight-yard shot from the right side, giving the Tigers a win in a game in which they trailed by six goals.

“This team never gives up,” said Towson Coach Shawn Nadelen. “Even though we were down by six goals, we just kept playing hard. We got some momentum and we kept winning faceoffs. The closer we got, the more excited we became.”

The win enabled the Tigers to extend their winning streak to four games as they moved into sole possession of first place in the CAA. It also ended the Tigers’ four-game losing streak to the Pride and was Towson’s first win at Hofstra since 2004.

Trailing by 9-3 with 11:27 remaining, the Tigers pulled off a dramatic rally scoring the final six goals of regulation to send the game into overtime.

The Tiger offense came to life with 11:27 remaining and scored three goals over the next 3:09, cutting their deficit to 9-6. After Thomas DeNapoli scored off a pass from senior Carl Iacona, the Tigers were presented with their first extra-man opportunity of the night. With 9:35 remaining, senior Michael Brashears scored an extra-man goal off a pass from Thomas DeNapoli to cut the deficit to 9-5. Senior Matt Lamon scored off a pass from Thomas DeNapoli with 8:18 remaining to pull the Tigers to within 9-6.

Over the next few minutes, Hofstra successfully ran time off the clock. With 2:58 left, the Tigers pulled to within 9-7 when senior Sean Maguire scored off a pass from Matt Hughes. Junior Ian Mills won the faceoff to give the Tigers a chance to pull closer.

With 2:03 left in regulation, Lamon picked up a loose ball in front of the cage and fired a shot into the goal, pulling the Tigers to within a goal, making it a 9-8 game.

Mills won another faceoff and the Tigers had a chance to tie the game. With two seconds remaining, Thomas DeNapoli broke free on the left side and scored the game-tying goal.

It was his third goal of the game, setting a career high.

“I knew Thomas would have a big game,” said Nadelen. “He was really focused and very determined.”

Hofstra dominated play for the first 49 minutes and looked to be on its way to a comfortable win.

Junior Adrian Sorchetti gave Hofstra a very quick 1-0 lead when he scored an unassisted goal just 51 seconds into the game. After Mills won the ensuing faceoff, Thomas DeNapoli tied the game on the Tigers’ first shot as he scored with 13:20 left in the first quarter.

With 5:46 remaining in the first quarter, Mike DeNapoli, the cousin of Thomas, scored an unassisted goal to put Hofstra ahead, 2-1.

The Pride dominated play in the first quarter, enjoying a 12-4 advantage on shots. However, junior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage did a great job keeping the Tigers in the game as he made five saves in the opening period.

With 8:23 left in the first half, the Tigers ended a 19-minute scoring drought when Lamon scored off a nifty pass through traffic by junior Matt Hughes, tying the game at 2-2.

With 6:27 left in the second quarter, Mike DeNapoli ended Hofstra’s scoring drought as he scored off a pass from Steve Serling to put Hofstra ahead, 3-2. Only nine seconds later, Mike DeNapoli scored again as he took a pass from Sorchetti off the faceoff and gave the Pride a 4-2 advantage.

Hofstra maintained its 4-2 lead until halftime.

In the opening minute of the third quarter, Sorchetti scored an unassisted goal to give Hofstra a 5-2 lead. Less than two minutes later, the Tigers stopped Hofstra’s 3-0 run when Hughes scored off a pass from Thomas DeNapoli with 12:33 remaining in the quarter, pulling the Tigers to within 5-3.

Freshman Tyler Begley extended the Hofstra lead to 6-3 when he scored off a pass from sophomore Lance Yapor with 8:52 left in the third quarter. Serling scored on a long running shot three minutes later, giving Hofstra a 7-3 lead.

When Serling scored a goal with 13 minutes left in the game, Hofstra extended its lead to 8-3. Begley added an extra man goal off a pass from Sorichetti with 12:04 left, upping the advantage to 9-3.

Thomas DeNapoli led the Tigers with three goals and three assists while Lamon added three goals and an assist.

The victory extended the Tigers’ winning streak to four games in a row.

Gumbs, Jones To Leave Towson Basketball Team

Posted on 26 March 2012 by WNST Staff

Gumbs, Jones To Leave Towson Men’s Basketball Team
Gumbs to Receive Medical Hardship; Jones to Transfer

TOWSON, Md. – Forwards Erique Gumbs and Deon Jones will not return to the Towson men’s basketball team, head coach Pat Skerry announced on Monday. Gumbs will not return to the team due to medical conditions, but the redshirt sophomore will remain enrolled at Towson. Jones has been granted permission to seek a transfer from the University.

“I greatly appreciate the contributions that both Erique and Deon have made to the Towson University men’s basketball program,” Skerry said. “We are excited for Erique to remain at Towson to finish his degree. He’s been a model student for the younger guys in our program. Deon will seek other opportunities and we wish him the best of luck both athletically and academically where ever he decides to continue his college career.”

Gumbs will be unable to compete for the Tigers due to a complication of Marfan’s syndrome, a condition in which the body’s connective tissue is abnormal. It most often affects the connective tissue of the heart and blood vessels, eyes, bones, lungs, and covering of the spinal cord.

Gumbs, a Colonial Athletic Association All-Academic second team selection this past season, played in all 32 games for the Tigers in 2011-12, including 21 starts. The forward averaged 22.4 minutes per game while scoring 5.5 points and grabbing 4.8 rebounds a contest. The redshirt sophomore was Towson’s nominee for the prestigious CAA Dean Ehlers Leadership Award this past season.

Jones, who started all 32 games during his freshman season, averaged 7.0 points and 4.5 rebounds while playing 31.3 minutes per game. The freshman was third on the team with 41 assists and fourth on the squad with 26 steals. Jones had eight double-digit scoring games and three double-digit rebounding games during the 2011-12 season.

Towson Tops Delaware in CAA Opener

Posted on 24 March 2012 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – Five different Tigers posted multi-goal games as Towson cruised past rival Delaware, 13-8, in its Colonial Athletic Association opener Saturday evening at Johnny Unitas® Stadium.

Towson (5-3, 1-0 CAA), which never trailed in the game, has now won three straight for the first time since the 2010 season. The five-goal margin of victory is the Tigers’ largest against the Blue Hens since an 18-4 win on March 23, 2002.

“We were very pleased with our energy, focus and execution tonight,” said Towson head coach Shawn Nadelen. “It was our most complete game of the year and it came against and extremely talented Delaware team. The great thing is we are getting better and improving. We’re going to enjoy this win, but we have some extremely tough games ahead.”

Sophomore Thomas DeNapoli recorded a career-high four points with two goals and two assists to lead the Tigers. Senior’s Sean Maguire and Matt Lamon, sophomore Andrew Hodgson and freshman Robby Zoppo also posted multi-goal games for the Tigers.

Junior Ian Mills was impressive once again for the Tigers, winning 17 of 25 face-off’s. Junior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage was solid in the cage, posting eight saves and picking up his fifth win of the season.

For the second straight game, Towson got on the board less than five seconds into the game as Mills took the opening draw and fed Lamon for his eighth goal of the season before four ticks could come off the clock. Freshman Justin Mabus and Zoppo followed with goals and the Tigers led 3-0 less than seven minutes into the contest.

Delaware (3-6, 0-2 CAA) would score three of the next four goals to cut the Tiger lead to 4-3 at the end of the opening period. After the teams exchanged goals early in the second quarter, Zoppo and Maguire registered consecutive goals for Towson to give the Tigers a 7-4 halftime advantage.

After an even 2-2 third quarter, the Blue Hens remained within striking distance down just three goals entering the final period. Maguire posted his team-high 15th goal of the season at the 13:13 mark of the fourth quarter, but consecutive Delaware goals would bring the Blue Hens to within 10-8 with 8:39 remaining.

Towson would close the game strong though, netting three goals in a 2:20 span to seal the victory.

The Tigers outshot the Blue Hens by a 36-29 margin and went 3-for-6 in extra man opportunities.

Towson will play its first CAA road game of the season on Saturday, March 31 at No. 19 Hofstra. Opening face-off from Hempstead, N.Y. is set for 7 p.m.

Towson Hopes to Extend Winning Streak Saturday Against Delaware

Posted on 24 March 2012 by WNST Staff

Opening Face-Off
The Tigers have won back-to-back games and are above the .500 mark for the first time since a season-opening win at Jacksonville. With its 17-8 victory over Mercer on Wednesday, Towson notched the program’s 400th career win. Saturday the Tigers open up Colonial Athletic Association play against long-time rival Delaware. Opening face-off is set for 7:30 p.m. and fans can catch the game live on WNST-AM 1570 withSpiro Morekas and Hunter Lochte calling the action.

Updating the Tigers 
With consecutive victories over Stony Brook and Mercer, the Towson men’s lacrosse team has posted back-to-back wins for the first time since April 2010. The Tigers boast a winning record at 4-3 at the exact midpoint of the season. It marks the first time Towson has had a winning record after seven games since the 2007 season in which the Tigers started 5-2. Towson ended that year with a 9-7 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Four different Tigers have double-digit points on the year, led by senior Sean Maguire’s 17 points on 13 goals and four assists. After his second three-assist game of the year on Wednesday, freshman Justin Mabus continues to pace the squad with nine helpers to go along with one goal. Junior Matt Hughes (16) and sophomore Thomas DeNapoli (11) join Maguire and Mabus with double-digit points for the Tigers.

Scouting the Blue Hens
Delaware, which was nationally-ranked during the first few weeks of the season, enters tonight with a 3-5 overall record and an 0-1 mark in CAA games. Despite their record, the Blue Hens have picked up a pair of wins over ranked teams this season. UD topped then-No. 12 Bucknell on on February 11 and defeated then-No. 8 Villanova on March 3. Delaware is led by Grant Kaleikau’s 33 points on 13 goals and 20 assists. Danny Keane is the only other Blue Hen to have double-digit points with 12 goals and three assists.

The Tigers and Blue Hens will be meeting for the 53rd time on the lacrosse field tonight. Towson has only played Loyola (54) more often in its history. The Tigers own a 35-17 advantage in the all-time series history, including victories in each of the last two meetings. In the last 12 matchups between the rivals, Towson is 9-3.

Career Efforts
A number of Tigers put forth career-best efforts in the win over Mercer on Wednesday. Perhaps most notably, junior Matt Lamon tallied a career-high four goals on just six shots. Sean Maguire (3), Matt Hughes (3) and Andrew Hodgson (2) all matched their career-highs in goals. Maguire recorded a hat trick for the second time this season, Hughes netted his sixth career three-goal game and Hodgson got on the scoreboard twice in a game for the fourth time in his career.

Scoring in Bunches
Towson tallied a season-high 17 goals against Mercer on Wednesday and nine different Tigers scored. The 17 goals are the most scored by the Tigers since an 18-12 victory over Penn on April 26, 2008. Towson’s nine-goal first half and eight-goal second half are also the two top scoring halves by the squad this season.
