So far in the 2010 season the Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team has beaten Cortland State and Gettysburg who were in the top three at gametime. Today they looked to add another team to that list, #1 Stevenson. They accomplished that mission by a score of 16-10. One of those wins was at a neutral site while the other two were road games.

This win gives the Sea Gulls the #1 ranking in next week’s poll and the inside track to the Capital Athletic Conference regular season title.  It also means that in three weeks when these two teams most likely meet again in the CAC tournament championship game it will be in Salisbury.

A crowd of 1,534 looked on as Salisbury outscored the Mustangs 8-2 in the second half  to get the win. Mike Winter had four goals while Matt Cannone and Mike Von Kamecke added three apiece for the winners. Jimmy Dailey scored three goals and added two assists while Ray Witte added two more goals from face-off fast breaks for Stevenson.

A key to the game was the Salisbury man down unit. They held Stevenson to 1-5 on extra man and that one was with under a minute to play and the backup goalie in the cage. Salisbury went 2-4 in their extra man opportunities

Some other stats from the game Stevenson outshot Salisbury 44-37 and won the groundball war 30-24. Salisbury was 22-23 in clears while Stevenson was 16-19. Johnny Rodriguez had 15 saves for Salisbury including a couple at close range or one on one.

Salisbury starts a three game homestand by hosting St Mary’s on Wednesday night at 7pm while Stevenson heads to Marymount for at 4pm game.

The only thing that would take away from the big game on Saturday would be if one of the teams lost their last game before it happens. That did not happen.

We start in Fredrick where #1 Stevenson moved to 10-0 overall and 2-0 in the Capital Athletic Conference with a 20-4 win over Hood College. The Mustangs took at 12-1 halftime lead and cruised to victory. Trip Latta had four goals while Richie Ford had 3 goals and 3 assists for the winners. Stevenson outshot Hood 62-22, won the groundball war 49-22, and won 20 of 27 face-offs.

Meanwhile in Fredricksburg, VA #2 Salisbury moved to 11-0 overall and 2-0 in the CAC with a 15-7 win over Mary Washington.  Matt Cannone had 3 goals and 3 assists while Sam Bradman added three goals for the Sea Gulls. Salisbury outshot Mary Washington 44-18, won the groundball war 40-28 and won 17 of 25 face-offs.

Saturday at 2PM in front of a huge crowd these two teams will be playing for #1 in the country, the inside track to the CAC regular season title, and the right to host a possible rematch in the CAC tournament championship game on your field.

Division Three Lacrosse at its best this coming week

Posted on 24 March 2010 by Bryan Powell

You may not realize it but the #2 and #3 division three men’s lacrosse teams in the country call Maryland home.  Both of them have huge weeks culminating in a showdown on Saturday April 3rd.

Second ranked Stevenson is currently 8-0 after an 11-4 win this afternoon @Mary Washington. The Mustangs have been cruising through their early season schedule but things are about to get tougher. This Saturday #7 Roanoke comes to Owings Mills for a 1:00 game. The Maroons are also undefeated for the season. Stevenson then heads out to Fredrick for a Wednesday game againist Hood College.

The number three ranked team is the Salisbury University Sea Gulls. The Gulls are currently 8-0 entering tonight’s home game against Wesley. On Saturday they have to leave the friendly confines of Sea Gull Stadium to travel to top ranked Gettysburg which has turned into a fierce rivalry featuring many close games including a NCAA semifinal that went to double overtime in 2008 before Kylor Berkman scored for Salisbury. Last season Gettysburg won at Salisbury 11-10 which snapped am 87 game winning streak overall and 80 straight wins at home. That game also starts at 1:00. After the Gulls travel to Mary Washington on Wednesday they make the trip to Owings Mills.

The Salisbury/Stevenson rivalry is heating up at a rapid pace. Last season Stevenson goes to Salisbury and wins 14-8. That loss was Salisbury’s first loss in the Capital Athletic Conference and they joined in 1994, That spans 115 games. Salisbury would also lose to St. Mary’s before getting their act together. The teams would meet again in the CAC tournament final. This time it was at Stevenson and Salisbury won 13-5 to win their 15th straight conference title. You would think that those two games would be it but the NCAA had other ideas. Round three was a NCAA quarterfinal game. Stevenson also won that 11-9 to end the Sea Gull season before the semifinals for the first time since 2002.

This seasons first meeting takes place @ Stevenson in Owings Mills on Saturday April 3. If you are planning to attend I would arrive early. There is a women’s game between the two schools at 11:30 AM that day. It was announced today that WBAL+ which is channel 208 on Comcast will televise both games live.

Next week I will provide a more in depth preview of the game.

Last season was a disappointment for the Salisbury University Men’s lacrosse team. They finished 16-4, had several long winning streaks stopped, and lost in the quarterfinals to Stevenson. Keep in mind though the last time the Sea Gulls had at least four losses in a season was 2002. In 2003 they followed that up with a 20-1 season and a national title.

Today they took the first step. The #5 ranked Sea Gulls won their season opener 19-6 over host Greensboro College. Jake DeLillo led Salisbury with 5 goals, Sam Bradman and Matt Cannone added four apiece in the win. The Gulls out shot Greensboro 53-23 including  36-9 in the second half. The downside for Salisbury was they were 2-9 with the extra man and committed 10 penalties for 8:30. They did hold Greensboro to 1-10 when they were up a man.

Next week #18 Lynchburg comes to town for the home opener at 1pm. This years schedule features defending national champion Cortland State, Gettysburg, the annual “War On The Shore” vs. Washington College, and a trip to Stevenson on April 3rd.

I will be here all season long to keep you updated on the Sea Gulls and other local college lacrosse.

Salisbury and Stevenson in D-3 Tournament

Posted on 03 May 2009 by Bryan Powell

Stevenson will be making its first trip to the NCAA D-3 men’s lacrosse tournament. The Mustangs will host the winner of a first round game between Cabrini and Montclair State next Saturday in Owings Mills. If they win they play the winner of Salisbury @ Haverford. Yes that’s right we could be in for round three between these two schools. If Salisbury wants to get its sixth title in seven years they will have to do it on the road. The Sea Gulls open up at Haverford. Haverford won the Centennial Conference regular season but lost to Gettysburg in the tournament championship game. If Salisburywins they probably head to Owings Mills where they won 13-5 in the CAC championship game. The south region also features the above mentioned Gettysburg and Roanoke who only has one loss.

Here is a link for the whole tournament.

Stevenson New #1

Posted on 28 March 2009 by Bryan Powell

Gettysburg went to Salisbury and came away with a 11-10 win so come Monday there will be a new #1 team in D-3 and it should be the Stevenson Mustangs. Stevenson got a scare themselves but came away with a 12-11 win over Wesley. The Salisbury loss ends 3 amazing win streaks. They had won 55 in a row overall, 87 straight in the regular season, and 80 straight at home. Stevenson travels to York on Wednesday before heading to Salisbury next Saturday. Salisbury meanwhile hosts Mary Washington Tuesday night before Stevenson comes to town. Salisbury needs to dominate on Tuesday to get some confidence back before the weekend. We will see what happens,
