Towson welcomes Mt. St. Mary’s to Unitas Stadium Saturday

Posted on 28 February 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - The Tigers look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season when they host Mount St. Mary’s on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Unitas Stadium.

Opening Face-Off: The Tigers are in the midst of a stretch in which five of six games are played at home. Unitas Stadium has been kind to the Tigers; both of Towson’s wins have come at home. Mount St. Mary’s is 0-4 after a tough early schedule featuring two top 10 teams.

Updating the Tigers: Towson got back on track with an 8-7 win over Georgetown on Feb. 22. The Tigers got two goals apiece from Thomas DeNapoli and Greg Cuccinello. DeNapoli had a six-point day after posting a career-best four assists.

Scouting the Mount: Mount St. Mary’s has been outscored 55-18 so far this season but have played #6 Maryland, Georgetown, Delaware and #4 Virginia. The Mount have surrendered no fewer than 10 goals in those outings. Six different players each have two goals on the year for MSM. Goalkeeper Chris Klaiber has started all four games and has a goals-against average (GAA) of 14.26 and a save percentage of .522. Nick Haley takes the face-offs, going 35-83 (.422) and has 13 ground balls.

The Series: The Tigers lead the all-time series with the Mount, 8-1. Mount St. Mary’s’ only win came in 1975 when Towson forfeited six games due to an ineligible player. Towson is 3-1 at home and 4-0 on the road. The teams played one game at an unknown site; the Tigers won that contest. Towson is on a seven-game win streak coming into Saturday’s game.

Last Time Out vs. MSM – March 2, 2013 (Towson 13, MSM 5): Behind hat tricks from Thomas DeNapoli andAndrew Hodgson, Towson men’s lacrosse recorded a 13-5 win over Mount St. Mary’s at Waldron Family Stadium. The Tigers scored six straight goals in the third and fourth quarters and kept the Mount off the board in the fourth to secure the win. DeNapoli posted a four-point night, adding an assist to his three goals. Towson’sAndrew Wascavage made 12 saves on the evening, many of them point-blank.

Next Up: Towson travels to Poughkeepsie, N.Y. to face Marist on Friday, March 7 at 7 p.m.

I don’t care what face you’re making, it doesn’t change how much I secretly love TSO.

I don’t know if I’ll make it to Soundstage Sunday night, but you should sing along with this tune for me.

I believe by law Carbon Leaf is not allowed to go more than a month without playing around here.

I’ll be the Muse record doesn’t suck.

I don’t really have a lot to say about any of this. Sorry. I didn’t really have time to study if we’re being fair.

Instead, courtesy of The Robb Report, for Christmas this year I’d like you to buy me a backyard stadium for $30 million. For reals.

I would also settle for this $83 million sky yacht.

Honorable Mention: Tennis-The Dream Cup Barbados (Friday & Saturday 6pm from Bridgetown, Barbados live on ESPN3.com); Running: Baltimore City Turkey Trot 5K (Thursday 8:30am Druid Hill Park)

Baltimore is better when The Bridge is together.

I saw CCD do a tribute to Brian Jack at the Recher Theatre a year or so ago. Baltimore rock and roll isn’t as great without him.

I’m going to try to get to the Sunday Preservation Hall show. I could listen to them play Christmas tunes all month.

You know what? Same thing with Michael McDonald. Judge away.

I’d be more excited about flicks coming out, but none of them are ‘The Wolf of Wall Street”. There isn’t a movie I want to see more than “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

Other than maybe this.

Also because Kate Bosworth is in “Homefront”, this photo of Kate Bosworth’s legs is relevant.

Towson gets 7th seed, first round bye in FCS playoffs

Posted on 24 November 2013 by WNST Staff

FCS PLAYOFF-BOUND TIGERS SEEDED 7th IN NCAA FCS PLAYOFFS

Tigers To Host Fordham-Sacred Heart Winner on Dec. 7

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – After posting a 10-2 record in the regular season, Coach Rob Ambrose and the Towson University football team earned the No. 7 seed for the NCAA FCS Championship Playoffs, it was announced by the NCAA on Sunday morning.

The Tigers, who are making their second NCAA FCS playoff appearance in the last three years, are one of eight seeded teams which earned first round byes.

Towson will host the winner of the first round game between Fordham (11-1) and Sacred Heart (10-2), the 2013 Northeast Conference championship team. The game will be played at Johnny Unitas® Stadium on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 1:00 p.m.

“When you work hard and when you sacrifice, special things can happen,’ said Coach Ambrose. “Every day, the eye was on the prize. Without everybody working together this just doesn’t happen.

“When I took the job, I said it wasn’t a matter of if, but when,” he added. “The ability to maintain our level of success over the past couple of years has given Towson national respect. I am proud to be a part of this community. It’s gratifying, I can’t hide it. I’m proud, I really am. The feeling is just plain awesome.”

Defending national champion North Dakota State (11-0) is the top seed while Eastern Illinois (11-1) is the number two seed. Eastern Washington (10-2) is seeded third while Southeastern Louisiana (10-2) is the number four seed. Colonial Athletic Association champion Maine (10-2) earned the number five seed while McNeese State (10-2) is seeded sixth.

No. 7 Towson and No. 8 Montana (10-2) round out the field of teams that earned first round byes.

New Hampshire is the only other CAA team to be selected as part of the playoff field.

The Tigers became the first NCAA team to earn an NCAA post-season bid at three different levels when they were selected for an FCS playoff berth two years ago. Towson was selected to play in the NCAA Division III playoffs in 1976 and made the Division II playoff field in 1983, 1984 and 1986.

In his fifth season as the Tigers’ coach, Ambrose has led the Tigers to a 29-28 record. Over the last three years, Towson has posted a 26-9 record, including a 19-5 mark in CAA games.

With a 6-2 record in the CAA this season, the Tigers finished the season tied for second in the CAA with New Hampshire. Towson won the 2011 CAA championship and shared the 2012 CAA title with Villanova, Richmond and UNH.

Towson aims to stay perfect Saturday against Villanova

Posted on 11 October 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – Seeking their 11th consecutive victory, Coach Rob Ambrose and the undefeated Towson University football team (6-0, 2-0) will face one of its toughest challenges of the season when the Tigers host No. 15 Villanova University (3-2, 2-0) in an important Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) game at Johnny Unitas® Stadium on Saturday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Ranked third in NCAA FCS this week, the Tigers will be celebrating Homecoming when they host the Wildcats.

The pre-season favorite to win the CAA championship, Villanova brings a three-game winning streak into Saturday’s night game. Last season, Towson and Villanova shared the CAA championship with New Hampshire and Richmond.

Saturday night’s game will be nationally-televised on the NBC Sports Network with Mike Corey and Anthony Herron calling the action.

The Towson-Villanova game will also feature the only two players ever to win the Jerry Rice Award as the top freshman in NCAA FCS football, junior Terrance West of Towson and sophomore quarterback John Robertson of Villanova. West was the inaugural Jerry Rice Award winner in 2011 while Robertson earned the award last season.

The Tigers come into Saturday night’s game with one of the top offensive teams and one of the top defensive squads in NCAA FCS. Averaging 40.8 points per game, the Tigers are ranked eighth in NCAA FCS. At the same time, Towson is allowing 16.8 points per contest, sixth in the nation.

Coach Ambrose knows that the Tigers will have their will be facing a serious challenge on Saturday night.

He says, “Villanova is an incredibly talented team and is extremely well-coached. Villanova isn’t just a great team. Villanova is a great program. Their quarterback is one of the best players in the league if not the country. Villanova has the ability to withstand injuries without missing a beat because they have such tremendous depth.”

The Tiger offense is coming off a school-record performance against New Hampshire. In the win over UNH, Towson set a school record with 731 yards of total offense.

Senior quarterback Peter Athens enjoyed the best game of his career in the win over UNH. He completed 22 of 33 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns. In six games this season, Athens has completed 98 of 154 passes for 1,332 yards and eight touchdowns. He has only thrown four interceptions and he has only been sacked three times.

The second-leading rusher in Towson history, West is enjoying the best season of his career. In six games, he has rushed for 886 yards on 154 carries, an average of 5.8 yards per attempt. He ranks fourth in NCAA FCS in rushing yards and leads the nation with 15 touchdowns. The leading-rusher in the CAA, he has run for more than 100 yards in five of six games and he has been honored as the CAA Offensive Player of the Week three times.

Named as the FCS National Co-Player of the Week by The Sports Network after his 238-yard game against New Hampshire, West is a leading candidate for the Walter Payton Award. He has been earned 10 weekly awards from the CAA in his career, a league record.

The Tiger defense, which is ranked 12th in the nation while allowing 301.8 total yards per game, has been led by senior linebacker Telvion Clark. Named as the CAA Defensive Player of the Week after the win over New Hampshire, Clark leads the Tigers with 55 tackles. He also ranks sixth in the CAA in tackles.

When the Tigers host Villanova, they will be trying to avoid the slow starts that have hurt them in the last two games. In their 35-21 win over Stony Brook, the Tigers rallied from a 14-0 first quarter deficit. They also trailed by 21-10 at the half. In their 44-28 win over New Hampshire, the Tigers spotted UNH a 20-3 first quarter lead before scoring 41 consecutive points.

Not surprisingly, the Tigers have been a second-half team all season. Towson has outscored its opponents by a 118-30 margin in the second half. In the third quarter, the Tigers own a 72-7 advantage. The only third-quarter touchdown that the Tigers have allowed came against Delaware State when Towson already had a 49-0 lead.

If the Tigers beat Villanova, they will tie the school record for consecutive wins, a mark set by the 1974 and 1975 Tigers.

After hosting Villanova on Saturday night, the Tigers will be back on the road next week when they travel to Albany.
