Hopkins routs Mt. St. Mary’s to improve to 8-3 on season

Posted on 14 April 2014 by WNST Staff

EMMITSBURG, MD – The sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team had 11 different players score goals and 13 players had at least one point as the Blue Jays topped host Mount St. Mary’s, 17-2, at Waldron Family Stadium Monday afternoon. Johns Hopkins moves to 8-3 on the year with its third straight win, while the Mountaineers slip to 0-14.

Playing less than 48 hours after an emotional 11-6 win over rival Maryland, the Blue Jays led just 2-0 at the end of the first quarter as the Mount stayed in a tightly packed zone defense. Back-to-back goals in the first three minutes of the second quarter doubled the lead as junior Wells Stanwick found seniors Brandon Benn and Kevin Interlicchio alone on the crease in a 48-second span to push the lead to 4-0.

Johns Hopkins controlled a majority of the possession in the first half by winning 8-of-10 faceoffs and slowly began to find seams in the Mount zone. Benn added his second of the first half on a quick-stick from the doorstep less than four minutes after Interlicchio’s goal and freshman John Crawley had a hand in two straight late in the period, scoring an unassisted goal on a wing dodge and then getting the helper on Benn’s third with 1:02 left. A transition goal by freshmanNick Fields off the ensuing faceoff accounted for an 8-0 Blue Jay lead at the half.

The lead swelled to 12-0 by late in the third quarter as freshman Cody Radziewicz, junior Brady Faby, Interlicchio andHolden Cattoni all scored in a span of less than eight minutes to build the 12-goal lead.

The Mountaineers finally broke through in the final seconds of the third quarter as Bubba Johnson beat Blue Jay goalie Eric Schneider with a low shot off an assist from Kyle McDonough and the Mount made it two straight at the 10:29 mark of the fourth quarter when Clayton Wainer scored from the wing.

Both teams substituted liberally in the fourth quarter with Johns Hopkins freshman attackman Jack Grass doing most of the damage with three goals and one assist in the final nine minutes of the game. Sophomore Liam Giblin and senior Greg Edmonds also scored in the final quarter for the Blue Jays, who played a total of 45 players in the game.

Johns Hopkins held decided advantages in shots (57-14), ground balls (47-19) and faceoffs (18-5) and matched a season high with 12 caused turnovers. Mount St. Mary’s goalie Chris Klaiber played well in goal for the Mount as his 19 saves were just one shy of his career high.

Stanwick paced the Blue Jays with a career-high-tying six assists, while Benn and Grass both added hat tricks. Four Blue Jay goalies combined for six saves with Schneider playing 45 minutes and stopping three shots.

Johns Hopkins will return to action on Friday, April 18 when the Blue Jays hit the road again at Navy. Faceoff is set for 7 pm.

Notes: Johns Hopkins has not allowed a first-quarter goal in the last three games • Stanwick’s six assists give him 36 on the year, the ninth-highest single-season total in school history and the most by a Johns Hopkins player since Dan Denihan had 40 in 2000 • JHU is now 65-8 under head coach Dave Pietramala against teams from the state of Maryland.

Gregoire scores six goals as UMBC beats Mt. St. Mary’s

Posted on 22 March 2014 by WNST Staff

Emmitsburg, Md. – Senior attackman Matt Gregoire (Crofton, Md./South River) recorded career highs in goals (6) and points (8) and sophomore linemate Nate Lewnes (Arnold, Md./St. Mary’s) added a career-best five goals as UMBC defeated Mount St. Mary’s, 17-7, at Waldron Family Stadium.

The Retrievers completed the non-conference slate at 4-4, while Mount St. Mary’s fell to 0-8.

“We came ready to play,” said head coach Don Zimmerman. “We were disappointed in the back-to-back losses and determined to come up here and play well.”

Gregoire had a hand in all five UMBC first quarter goals as the Retrievers raced out to a 5-1 lead after 15 minutes. He converted a pair of feeds from Maxwell in the first 4:05 of the stanza to stake the Retrievers to a quick 2-0 lead.  After the Mount got a goal back ,the senior tri-captain took advantage of a Mountaineer turnover and scored on an unsettled situation to give UMBC  a 3-1 advantage at the 8:35 mark. Then, playing the point on the man-up, he fed sophomore midfielder Jack Gannon (Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y./Sachem North) and Maxwell for inside tallies in the late stages of the quarter to propel the Retrievers to a 5-1 advantage.

Lewnes stretched the lead to 6-1 early in the second quarter, but Mount responded with back-to-back scores to come within 7-3 at the 5:19 mark. But Gregoire got one back at the 8:32 mark and the Retrievers scored twice in the final 26 seconds of the stanza to take a 9-3 lead into the break.

The Mount opened the third quarter with a goal just 1:58 into the period, but Lewnes started a 7-0 response with back-to-back scores which gave the visitors an insurmountable 16-4 lead early in the fourth quarter.

“Nate (Lewnes) played injured and we didn’t know if he was going to play,” said Coach Zimmerman. “He plays, he’s a tough kid and he has his best day shooting the ball. Matt (Gregoire) has been a great leader for us since he’s been at UMBC. He finishes opportunities.”

Freshman attackman Max Maxwell (Hamburg, N.Y./Hamburg) also posted a season-best, scoring twice and adding three assists for five points. Gannon added a pair of scores and an assist, while senior midfielder Ryan Johnston (Huntingtown, Md./Huntingtown) added a goal and two helpers .

All of UMBC’s players in uniform competed in the contest.

UMBC outshot MSM, 47-25 and controlled 18 of 27 draws. Red-shirt freshman netminder Connor Gordon (Bourne, Mass./Tabor Academy) made six saves, allowing four goals in the first 46:48 of the game.  Senior face-off specialist Phil Poe (Harwood, Md./DeMatha) won 14 of the 19 draws he attempted and collected a season-best 12 ground balls.

The 17 goals and 12 assists recorded by UMBC were season-highs and the most goals since a 17-16 win over Albany on April 21, 2012.

UMBC opens America East Conference play versus Stony Brook at UMBC Stadium on Friday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Notes: Gregoire now has 26 goals through eight games in 2014… He recorded UMBC’s first six-goal goal since Scott Jones scored six times versus Vermont on April 6, 2013… UMBC remained undefeated in 21 all-time meetings versus Mount St. Mary’s… The win snapped a four-game road losing streak for the Retrievers, dating back to the 2013 season.

Rambo goes off in debut as Maryland crushes Mt. St. Mary’s

Posted on 08 February 2014 by WNST Staff

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Freshman Matt Rambo made his Terrapin debut a memorable one with four goals and two assists to lead the No. 6 University of Maryland men’s lacrosse team to a 16-3 victory over Mount St. Mary’s Saturday afternoon in front of 1,203 at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.

Senior midfielder Mike Chanenchuk had three goals and an assist, while junior attackman Jay Carlson also chipped in with a hat trick for the Terps (1-0), who opened the season with a victory for the 21st-straight season.

Rambo’s six-point effort is the most points for a Terrapin making his Maryland debut since 2004 when sophomore Xander Ritz had seven points on three goals and four assists in his first game after transferring from Delaware. Rambo’s four goals were the most for a Maryland freshman in his collegiate debut since 2008 when Grant Catalino score four times in an 11-6 win at Georgetown.

Maryland jumped on the Mount (0-1) right from the start as Chanenchuk opened the scoring just 1:05 into the game with his first goal of the game. That kick-started a 5-0 run for the Terps.

The 2014 season got off to a good start for the Terrapin extra-man unit when senior Rustin Bryant found freshmanConnor Cannizzaro open inside on the crease for an easy one-timer just 13 seconds into the first extra-man opportunity of the season to give Maryland a 2-0 lead.

Carlson scored his first of the season to up the lead to 3-0 at the 10:49 mark off of a nice inside feed from juniorKevin Forster, who made is return to the field after missing all of 2013 due to injury.

Rambo picked up his first collegiate goal just 19 seconds later with an unassisted effort.

The 5-0 run was capped off by sophomore Henry West, who picked up his first goal as a Terp with 5:35 left in the first quarter on a bounce shot from the right alley.

The Mount rallied near the end of the first quarter with goals from Ryan Lamon and Bubba Johnson to close the gap to 5-2 heading into the second quarter.

But the Terps scored six unanswered goals in the second to blow the game wide open.

Rambo and Chanenchuk scored back-to-back unassisted goals to give Maryland a 7-2 lead with just over 12:00 to play in the first half.

The extra-man unit cashed in again with 10:52 on the clock when junior midfielder Joe LoCascio ripped a laser into the top corner from the left alley to make it an 8-2 game.

Carlson netted his second of the game to put the Terps up by seven with 9:54 to play. Junior midfielder Bryan Colemade a nice move to dip under his defender and finish in close to up the Terps’ lead to 10-2 48 seconds later.

The first-half scoring was capped off with a transition goal that began with a terrific ride by senior midfielder Brian Cooper, who caused a Mountaineer turnover and picked up the groundball to begin the play. Cooper then pushed the ball into the box and found Rambo open for the easy shot and score with 6:13 to play.

The second half saw the Terps extend their scoring run to eight straight goals, beginning with Chanenchuk’s third of the game at the 14:904 mark. This one came on a big-time shot from the left top slot off of a feed from Cannizzaro.

Rambo closed out the run with his fourth of the game with 9:27 left in the third to make it a 13-2 Maryland lead.

Robert Jones scored an extra-man goal for Mount St. Mary’s with 3:39 remaining in the third to close the game to 10 goals, but Maryland responded with a goal by Cannizzaro off an assist from Rambo to up its lead to 14-3 at the 2:39 mark.

With time running down in the third, senior Michael Ehrhardt, who finished with three groundballs and three caused turnovers, caused a Mountaineer turnover and picked up the groundball to give the Terps the ball back. Carlson made the effort pay off with a spectacular underhand, back-handed sweeping shot off of a quick feed from Rambo with just two seconds left on the clock to make it a 15-3 Maryland advantage.

That’s the way it would stay until just two seconds remained in the fourth quarter when freshman midfielder Ben Chisolm scored his first collegiate goal on a rip from the right wing off of a feed from junior midfielder Zack Wholley.

Maryland’s defense was stout all day, allowing just 22 shots. Senior goalie Niko Amato played the first three quarters and made seven stops. Junior Kyle Bernlohr came in for the fourth quarter and recorded four saves for the Terps.

Maryland dominated possession thanks in large part to junior Charlie Raffa winning 8-of-12 faceoffs and picking up a game-high seven groundballs. Sophomore Jon Garino relieved Raffa as the team’s primary faceoff man in the second half and he won 4-of-6 draws with three groundballs and one caused turnover.

The Terps will return to action on Saturday, Feb. 15 when it welcomes in-state rival UMBC to Captial One Field for a noon start. That match is scheduled to be streamed live on TerpsTV.

• The Maryland defense held Mount St. Mary’s without a goal for 26:37 from 0:16 in the first quarter to 3:39 in the third quarter to register the team’s first 20-plus minute scoreless stretch of the season.

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.

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.

Stanwick leads way as Hopkins routs Mount St. Mary’s

Posted on 05 March 2013 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, MD – Sophomore attackman Wells Stanwick punched up career highs of five goals and four assists and the sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team scored 13 second-half goals as the Blue Jays knocked off visiting Mount St. Mary’s, 19-9, at Homewood Field Tuesday evening. The win improves the Blue Jays’ record to 4-1, while the Mountaineers slip to 2-4.

The Blue Jays led just 5-3 late in the second quarter after Brett Schmidt scored with 3:30 remaining in the period for the Mount. The second of Brandon Benn’s four goals with just 29 seconds left in the first half extended the lead to 6-3 at intermission and jump-started a 9-2 Johns Hopkins run that put the game away.

After Rex Sanders and Andrew Scalley traded goals in the first two minutes of the third quarter to make it 7-4, the Blue Jays got some breathing room with a four-goal spurt that took less than four minutes – for the second time in the game Stanwick had a hand in all four goals in a 4-0 run.

After assisting on an extra-man goal by freshman Ryan Brown with 9:42 remaining in the period, Stanwick sandwiched his third and fourth goals of the game around another Benn strike that he assisted on to push JHU’s lead to 11-4.

The Mount temporarily halted the run when Anthony Golden took a skip-pass from Bryant Schmidt and had time and room to beat Blue Jay goalie Eric Schneider from nine yards out, but the senior John Ranagan bookended a three-goal Blue Jay run that bridged the third and fourth quarters with his only two goals of the game to push the lead to 14-5.

 The high-scoring Mountaineer attack Scalley, Schmidt and Cody Lehr went goal-for-goal with the Blue Jays over the first six minutes of the fourth quarter to make it 16-8 with more than half the period still remaining. Lee Coppersmith, Bronson Kellyand Brady Faby all scored in the final 8:01 for the Blue Jays, while Daniel Stranix added the final marker for the Mount to account for the 19-9 final score.Early on the Mountaineers led 2-1 after Schmidt and Golden sandwiched goals around a Mike Poppleton tally for the Blue Jays and the Mount fired 10 of its 28 shots in the game during the first quarter, but Stanwick got the Blue Jays going with the first and last goals in a 4-0 run that turned the 2-1 deficit into a 5-2 lead early in the second quarter. He also assisted on Benn’s two goals during the spree, which was followed by an 11-minute scoring drought for both teams. Schmidt and Benn then traded the two goals late in the second quarter that set the stage for JHU’s third-quarter run that put the game away.

Stanwick, who had never posted more than two goals, three assists or four points in a game before tonight, is the first Johns Hopkins player to total nine points in a game since April 19, 2003, when Kyle Barrie had five goals and four assists in a 17-3 win over Navy. Benn added four goals for to become the first Johns Hopkins player since Conor Ford in 2004 to post five straight hat tricks. In all, 10 different Johns Hopkins players found the back of the net and 13 different players registered at least one point, including senior John Greeley, who punched up a career-high four assists.

The Blue Jays got another solid effort on faceoffs from senior Mike Poppleton, who won 15-of-21 and had a team-high five ground balls. Johns Hopkins also converted on 5-of-6 extra-man chances and held advantages in shots (38-28) and ground balls (29-22).

Scalley, Schmidt and Lehrer combined for six of the Mountaineers’ nine goals and added two assists and starting goalie Adam Borgogelli posted seven saves and allowed 11 goals before giving way to a pair of backups, who managed just two saves while allowing eight goals in the final 21 minutes.

Hat trick each for DeNapoli, Hodgson in Towson win

Posted on 02 March 2013 by WNST Staff

Emmitsburg, Md. – Behind hat tricks from junior co-captain Thomas DeNapoli and junior Andrew Hodgson, Towson men’s lacrosse (2-3) recorded a 13-5 win over Mount St. Mary’s (2-3) Saturday evening at Waldron Family Stadium.

“We knew it was going to be a battle tonight,” said head coach Shawn Nadelen. “They are extremely explosive offensively and well-coached defensively. I was really proud of the way our guys came out energy-wise. We didn’t give [the Mount] easy looks or easy breaks.”

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.

Senior Andrew Wascavage made 12 saves on the evening, many of them point-blank.

“I think a difference in the game was Andrew Wascavage’s play,” continued Nadelen. “He was a backbone for us. He made a ton of key stops in tight. He was just fantastic. He definitely deserves a game ball for today.”

Brett Schmidt’s two goals and one assist paced the Mount. Adam Borgogelli had eight saves in net for the Mountaineers.

The Mount took an early 1-0 lead after Schmidt scored top-shelf on an extra-man opportunity at 13:21. But freshman Brian Bolewicki notched his first career goal at 11:23 on a bounce shot from distance to tie the game at 1-1. The Mount’s Andrew Scalley and Hodgson traded goals to keep the score knotted, 2-2, at 3:21.

Towson opened the second quarter with a DeNapoli goal at 14:36 to give the Tigers their first lead of the game. Junior Cory Dobyns increased Towson’s lead to 4-2 with 9:08 left in the second quarter when he ripped a shot right side as he fell to the ground for an extra-man tally. Sophomore Greg Cuccinello continued his charged offensive production this season, burying a shot past Borgogelli with 35.5 seconds left to give Towson a 5-2 cushion at the half.

Dobyns posted his sixth man-up goal of the year at 13:23 in the third after the Mount started the second half man-down due to a penalty at the very end of the second quarter. Towson led 6-2 until MSM scored three quick goals to trim the lead to 6-5. DeNapoli stemmed the tide at 9:23 to keep the Tigers out in front, 7-5, and Hodgson scored his second of the game with 43.2 seconds remaining in the third frame.

“One of the things our guys do well is not get rattled when teams go on runs,” said Nadelen. “Our guys believe in themselves. We need to work on not letting teams get those runs, getting defensive stops and face-off wins. But I’m proud of our guys tonight.”

DeNapoli recorded his third straight hat trick with his unassisted goal at 13:59 in the fourth. Sophomore Ben McCarty (two goals), senior Matt Hughes, and Hodgson all scored in the fourth quarter as part of the six-goal run.

Towson returns to action on Friday, March 8 when the Tigers host Marist at 7 p.m. in Johnny Unitas® Stadium.

NOTES:
Saturday’s win marked Towson’s biggest victory since March 24, 2012 when the Tigers defeated Delaware 13-8 at home … It is the Tigers’ largest road victory since March 5, 2011 at Mount St. Mary’s when Towson posted an 11-3 win … Towson now leads the all-time series 8-1 and is a perfect 4-0 at Mount St. Mary’s … freshman Brian Bolewicki scored his first collegiate goal and had a career-best three-point evening … sophomore Cory Dobynsnow has six man-up goals on the year … he has 10 goals total.
