Hartford’s late heroics drop UMBC in OT

Posted on 31 March 2013 by WNST Staff

West Hartford, Conn.- Hartford midfielder Garrett Dollard scored the game-tying goal with 11 seconds remaining in regulation and tallied the game-winner 54 seconds into overtime as the host Hawks edged the UMBC Retrievers, 15-14, in the America East opener for both teams at Al-Marzook Stadium.

UMBC freshman midfielder Pat Young (Ewing, N.J./Christchurch School) led the visitors with a season-best four goals and five points. Retriever senior attackmen Scott Jones (Port Coquitlam, B.C./Terry Fox) and Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) added three goals apiece.

Hartford sophomore and attackman Kevin O’Shea led all scorers with five goals and one assist.

The Retrievers played from behind for the entire first half, but took the lead for the first time at 10-9 on back-to-back scores by Young late in the third quarter. Gregoire capped his hat trick and gave the visitors a two-goal advantage with 1:28 remaining.

But Hartford (4-4, 1-0) sent the game to the fourth quarter down by only one as they scored with 28 second left in the frame, then tied the score at 11-all just 1:01 into the fourth.

UMB C (3-6, 0-1) then snatched the momentum back as Young recorded an unassisted score with 10:19 remaining. The Retrievers added to the advantage as Jones fired home a man-up goal from 12 yards out and scored inside on a feed from Young to take a 14-11 lead with 6:39 remaining.

The Hawks rallied, scoring a man-up goal with 5:42 remaining, and then tallied on a fast break while down a man with 3:02 to play.

In the final minute of regulation, UMBC was assessed a delay of game penalty, but was en route to killing it off after a loose ball situation with 31 seconds to play, but the Hawks managed to call a time out. Hartford’s Jared Franze found Dollard cutting inside and his shot from eight yards out beat UMBC sophomore netminder wes DiRito (Odenton, Md./DeMatha) to knot the score at 14-all.

After Hartford mishandled the ball on the ensuing draw, UMBC sent the ball the length of the field and Jones popped it into the net, but just one second after the clock read 0:00.

UMBC won the draw to start overtime, but committed a turnover before on an immediate drive to the goal. Hartford took possession and Dollard took the ball behind the goal, popped out on the right side, and bounced a shot past DiRito from close range. .

Both goalkeepers were outstanding at various stages of the game. DiRito amassed 14 saves, including 11 in the middle two stanzas to allow UMBC to rally. Hartford-s Frank Piechota came up with 12 stops, including 10 in the first and fourth quarters.

Senior attackman Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) scored a goal and added three assists for UMBC.

UMBC trailed, 4-2, after one quarter and 7-5 at the half.

The Retrievers play one of only two league home games on Sat., April 6 vs. Vermont.

Murphy delivers late for UMBC in win over Mount St. Mary’s

Posted on 23 March 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE- UMBC senior close defender Ethan Murphy (West Seneca, N.Y./West Seneca East) snapped an 8-8 tie with his first goal of the season with 6:48 remaining as the host Retrievers prevailed, 10-8, over Mount St. Mary’s at UMBC Stadium.

The game-winning goal capped an outstanding day for Murphy, who led an excellent defensive effort by the Retrievers with six ground balls and three caused turnovers. Retriever sophomore netminder Wes DiRito (Odenton, Md./DeMatha) recorded 11 saves, and only permitted a pair of Mountaineer goals after halftime.

UMBC held Mount St. Mary’s to three goals below their season average.

Offensively, three Retrievers- freshman midfielder Pat Young (Ewing, N.J./Christchurch (Va.)) School), and senior attackmen Scott Jones (Port Coquitlam, B.C./Terry Fox) and Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) each scored a pair of goals. Senior attackman Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) led the Retrievers with a goal and two assists.

Mount St. Mary’s was paced by senior attackman Brett Schmidt was scored two goals and added three assists.

UMBC led, 7-6, at halftime, but the Mount scored the lone goal of the third quarter to send the contest to the fourth tied at 7-7. Young and Mount midfielder Daniel Stranix traded scores early in the fourth quarter before Murphy struck for the third time in his career.  DiRito made a save on one end and Murphy scooped up the ground ball. He raced down the field and dished to sophomore midfielder Tim Lang (Holbrook, N.Y./Sachem North). Lang brought the ball into the offensive third and fed the trailing Murphy, whose shot beat reserve Mount goalkeeper Frankie McCarthy to the off-stick side.

The Retrievers (3-5) added an insurance goal with 5:25 remaining, as Jones hauled in a rebound off McCarthy, wheeled and scored to give UMBC a two-goal advantage.

The Mount had a late man-up advantage with 1:27 remaining, but could not capitalize and slipped to 4-6 on the season.

UMBC junior face-off specialist Phil Poe (Harwood, Md./DeMatha) dominated the face-off x, capturing 16 of 22 draws.  The Retrievers had 34 ground balls to 18 for Mount St. Mary’s, although the visitors outshot UMBC, 37-29.

McCarthy took the loss for his side, making five saves and allowing all three fourth quarter goals. Starter Adam Borgogelli had six first-half saves for the Mountaineers.

The Retrievers improved to 20-0 in all-time meetings vs. Mount St. Mary’s. The two teams had not met since 2003.

The visitors jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but UMBC scored four consecutive goals in under five minutes to take a 4-2 lead late in the first quarter. The Retrievers led, 4-3, after 15 minutes and 7-6 at the half.

DeNapoli scores seven goals in Towson’s win over UMBC

Posted on 19 March 2013 by WNST Staff

Baltimore, Md. - Behind junior Thomas DeNapoli’s seven goals and 10 points, the Towson men’s lacrosse team defeated UMBC, 12-9, Tuesday evening at UMBC Stadium.

The game was close from the start. UMBC scored first and stayed a goal ahead until the Retrievers took a 5-3 lead at 10:55 in the second quarter. But that advantage didn’t last long before DeNapoli scored his first man-up goal of the year just under four minutes later. He tied the game at eight apiece at 2:37 with his sixth goal of the game. That score keyed a five-goal run for the Tigers that sealed the win.

“We were very happy to get the win,” said head coach Shawn Nadelen. “Obviously you need them all but getting a win against a good team and in-state rival is important. It was nice to see us rebound and show we had it in us. Going into CAA play with the way the guys fought tonight was really good to see.”

DeNapoli’s goal total was a career high and marked the first time since 2003 a Tiger had six or more goals in a road game. Senior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage tied his season high with 15 saves. Sophomore Cory Dobynsadded two. UMBC freshman Pat Young led the Retrievers with a hat trick. Each team took 39 shots for the game, but UMBC picked up 26 ground balls to Towson’s 22.

The Tigers’ defense struggled in the first half, conceding four goals in the first quarter, and Towson lost the ground ball battle, 12-5, in that frame.

“I know [the defense] didn’t play the way they wanted in the first half,” said DeNapoli. “But they stepped up big in the second half.”

“Our problem was really picking up ground balls,” said Wascavage. “Ï left some rebounds out there I shouldn’t have. Thomas really carried us through the first half, and we stepped it up in the second half.”

 At halftime the Tigers made adjustments and limited the Retrievers to two goals the entire second half. Towson also strengthened its face-off play in the last three quarters. After going 1-for-8 in the first frame, freshman Pat Conroy took over duties at the “X” and went 7-fo-13.

“Conroy’s play was awesome,” continued Wascavage. “Neutralizing [Phil] Poe was big. He’s a good face-off guy. Winning the ball meant keeping the ball down on our offensive end.”

The Tigers finish a four-game road trip and open Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play on Friday, March 22 at Delaware at 7 p.m.

NOTES: Thomas DeNapoli scored a career-high seven goals for Towson … it marked the first time since 2003 a Tiger had six or more goals in a road game … DeNapoli’s 10 points marked the first time since March 31, 2012 when he did it against Mercer on 3g and 3a …

Posted on 16 March 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE- UMBC freshman attackman Nate Lewnes (Arnold, Md./St. Mary’s) tallied a team season-best six points and sophomore netminder Wes DiRito  (Odenton, Md./DeMatha) collected 15 saves in his first home start as the host Retrievers defeated High Point, 16-11, at UMBC Stadium.

UMBC improved to 2-4 on the season, including 2-0 at home, while High Point, in its first year of NCAA Division I varsity competition, fell to 2-6.

Lewnes scored two goals and added four assists to pace the attack for UMBC. Senior attackman Scott Jones (Port Coquitlam, B.C./Terry Fox) scored three goals for the Retrievers and added a pair of assists. Four Retrievers- freshman Pat Young (Ewing, N.J./Christchurch (Va.), junior Zach Linkous (Jarrettsville, Md./St. Paul’s), senior Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) and junior David Campbell (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park)- each scored two goals for UMBC.

High Point freshman attackmen Dan Lomas and Adam Seal each scored three goals.

The Retrievers had not scored the game’s first goal in 2013, but burst from the gates and took a 4-0 advantage by the 9:03 mark of the first quarter. Campbell opened the scoring on an unassisted goal 4:14 into the proceedings ,getting to the inside and beating HPU netminder Austin Geisler. Lewnes made it 2-0, converting a Zach Linkous feed at the 5:39 mark and Retriever junior face-off specialist Phil Poe (Harwood, Md./DeMatha) won the ensuing draw and scored six seconds later to push the margin to 3-0. Young capped the run before Panther sophomore attackman Matt Thistle closed the scoring for the quarter with 1:35 remaining.

Thistle’s goal started a 5-2 response by High Point as the visitors cut the Retriever advantage to 6-5 on Lomas’ 20th goal of the season
at the 8:43 mark of the second stanza. But UMBC answered with a 3-0 surge in a span of 2:04 on goals by Campbell, Linkous and Gregoire to take a 9-5 advantage. Lomas scored the final goal of the half with 1:51 to play in the quarter and UMBC took  a9-6 advantage to the locker room .

The Panthers closed to within a pair of goals twice in the third quarter, outscoring the Retrievers, 3-2, in the stanza.

UMBC led, 11-9, after 45 minutes, but scored twice in the first 3:24 of the fourth quarter and added two more in a 34-second span in the
middle of the stanza to take control. Senior attackman Joe Lustgarten (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) caught the High Point defense off-guard and came from behind the net to score a man-up goal 73 seconds into the quarter to give the Retrievers a 12-9 advantage and Jones finished a Young feed to push the advantage to 13-9. Gregoire, Linkous  and Young recorded the final three scores for the Retrievers as the team tallied a season-high in goals.

DiRito made 10 of his 15 saves in the second and fourth quarters. Geisler stopped 10 UMBC shots as the visitors outshot the hosts,
41-35.
