Cuccinello, DeNapoli lead Towson past Navy

Posted on 11 March 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - Nine different Tigers scored at least one goal in Towson’s (5-2) 14-9 victory over Navy (3-3) Tuesday evening at Unitas Stadium.

The Tigers held a 9-1 lead at the half after holding the Mids scoreless in the second quarter. Navy came out of the break recharged and fought back, outscoring the Tigers 8-5 and holding them scoreless for over 11 minutes between the third and fourth quarters.

Junior Greg Cuccinello led the Tigers with three goals. Senior Thomas DeNapoli added four points on two goals and two assists. Freshman Joe Seider was the third Tiger to have a multi-goal game (two goals). Gabe Voumard led the Mids with three goals.

“Very excited by our team’s effort the past two days,” said Head Coach Shawn Nadelen. “Our scout team did a great job preparing us for what we knew Navy would bring in regards to their energy, their hustle, their toughness. I think that prepared us a great deal for us to come out and defend against it.”

The Tigers had another hot start to the game, similar to the 12-9 win over Marist just four days prior. Towson scored the game’s first three goals, one of which was freshman Mike Lynch‘s first career goal. The Tigers seemed to have free reign to shoot and score from all over the field.

Tucker Hull‘s goal at 2:29 in the first quarter was Navy’s only tally in the first half, and the Mids actually scored an own goal at 12:57 in the second frame  after the Tigers committed a turnover to keep Towson’s scoring rally going. Senior Max Siskind scored on a very pretty fake at 10:27 in the second before Cuccinello scored his first EMO goal of the year at 6:00 and sophomore Brian Bolewicki posted his first goal (4:22, second quarter) since missing three games with an injury.

It was a different story in the second half, as Navy came out and scored five of the next seven goals to cut Towson’s lead to 11-6 at 13:47 in the fourth quarter. Cuccinello snapped Navy’s run with Towson’s first goal in 11:11 with his diving unassisted goal at 11:23.

Navy outshot the Tigers 31-28 and won the face-off battle 17-10. The ground balls were equal (29-29), but Towson was 2-3 on EMO chances, while the Mids were just 1-6.

Towson returns to action on Tuesday, March 18 when the Tigers host UMBC at Unitas Stadium at 7 p.m.

Navy scored two quick, tough goals to start the second half and go up 7-5 with 7:17 remaining in the third quarter. Andrew Hodgson posted his first man-up goal since his freshman year at 4:10 off an assist from Dobyns (7-6). The Tigers evened the game at 7-7 on Devin Grimaldi’s second career goal assisted by Neil Hutchinson and took their first lead of the game on an unassisted tally, and eventual game winner, from Greg Cuccinello at 10:28 in the fourth quarter.

Seider, Vetter score three goals each as Towson tops Marist

Posted on 07 March 2014 by WNST Staff

Poughkeepsie, N.Y. – Freshman Joe Seider and sophomore Chris Vetter each scored hat tricks as Towson (4-2) claimed a 12-9 win over Marist (2-3) at Tenney Stadium Friday night.

Marist opened the scoring just 15 seconds into the game, but the Tigers responded by stringing together a five-goal run in the first quarter and a stretch of scoring seven of eight goals over the second and third quarters. It was Seider’s second career hat trick and Vetter’s first. The 12 goals were Towson’s highest single-game total this season.

The Red Foxes scored the game’s opening goal after a miscue on the face-off. But Towson’s Seider, Vetter (two goals), senior Devin Grimaldi and senior Thomas DeNapoli all scored in the opening scoring five-goal rally to give the Tigers a 5-1 lead at the end of the quarter.

Marist stayed in it at the start of the second, decreasing the Tigers’ lead to 5-3 after back-to-back goals from Mike Begley and Drew Nesmith. However, freshman Ryan Drenner answered Nesmith exactly a minute later to keep Towson up by three at 12:46. His tally kicked off the Tigers second scoring run of the game that gave them an 11-4 lead at 4:08 in the third quarter.

Marist ended a nearly 15-minute scoring drought with a goal from Begley at 13:16 in the third – the Red Foxes’ lone goal during that Tiger scoring rally.

However, Marist held Towson scoreless in the fourth quarter and chipped away at the Tigers’ lead. The Red Foxes outscored the Tigers 5-0 in the final quarter, but Towson held on for the win.

Towson faces a quick turnaround as the Tigers host Navy on Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m. in Unitas Stadium.

Towson looks for third straight win Friday at Marist

Posted on 06 March 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - Looking for its third win in a row, Tiger men’s lacrosse (3-2) heads to Marist (2-2) on Friday, March 7 at 7 p.m. in Tenney Stadium.

Updating the Tigers
Towson won back-to-back games for the first time this season and allowed the fewest goals in the Tigers’ Division I history when they defeated Mount St. Mary’s 9-1 on March 1. Freshman Joe Seider and senior Max Siskind each scored two goals for Towson.

Scouting the Red Foxes
Marist stopped a two-game skid with a 16-12 win over Marquette on March 1. The Red Foxes had lost both games (Denver, Air Force) at the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic. Marist has three double-digit goal scorers in Joseph Radin (13), Colin Joka (11) and Drew Nesmith (10). The Red Foxes are being outscored 56-41 but have converted four-of-seven EMO chances. They have split the face-off percentage with opponents 50/50 and are nearly even on caused turnovers (leading 21-20).

Towson-Marist Series History
Last season Marist claimed a last-second overtime victory when Jack Doherty scored the game-winner in the only meeting between the teams.

Last Time Out vs. Marist – March 8, 2013 (Towson 9, Marist 10, ot)
Despite a then-career-high five goals from Thomas DeNapoli, Towson men’s lacrosse fell, 10-9 in overtime, to Marist when the Red Foxes’ Jack Doherty scored with one second left in overtime at Unitas Stadium. It was DeNapoli’s fourth straight hat trick. Doherty led Marist with four goals, while Drew Nesmith added three. The Tigers stayed just ahead of the Red Foxes until Nesmith scored on an EMO chance to kick off a Marist scoring rally. The Red Foxes scored five of the last seven goals for the win.

Next Up: Towson returns home to host Navy on Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m.
