White dominant for Towson in upset win at UMass

Posted on 05 April 2014 by WNST Staff

Amherst, Mass. – Sophomore Tyler White made 16 saves, saving the best one for 10 seconds left in the game, as Towson (8-3, 2-1 CAA) defeated No. 11 UMass (7-4, 1-1 CAA), 6-5, Saturday afternoon at Garber Field.

“It was the game we expected,” said Head Coach Shawn Nadelen. “We knew it would be tough, and both goalies played very well. Any time you play UMass, it’s a street fight. Tyler White came up huge for us. It’s a great win for us.”

The Tigers scored their last goal at 9:01 in the third quarter and withstood a furious UMass charge for the victory. It was Towson’s 30th program victory over a ranked team on the road and first since the 2013 CAA champioship.

UMass’s Grant Whiteway opened the scoring at 11:36, but the Minutemen weren’t in the lead for long before DeNapoli and Justin Mabus teamed up for DeNapoli’s 16th goal of the season at 8:57 first quarter. Cuccinello put the Tigers ahead, 3-1, at the end of the first quarter when he scored back-to-back goals 39 seconds apart.

Mariano notched his 23rd of the year at 12:35 in the second quarter, unassisted, to make it 3-2 in favor of Towson. Sophomore Ben McCarty contributed a goal at 10:40, but Mariano answered just under two minutes later. Neither team was able to do much offensively until Seider scored unassisted with a shot low to the right at 6:26 in the second.

The Tigers struggled with turnovers late in the first half, and White made five stand-up saves for Towson on quality Minutemen shots.

Ryan Izzo cut the Tigers’ lead to 5-4 when he cut right down the middle and scored unassisted with 48 seconds left in the half.

Seider started the scoring in the second half at 9:01 when he worked in alone to the right side of the net and stuffed it in to give the Tigers another two-goal lead, 6-4. Towson ended the third quarter ahead, 6-5, after Jeff George sent a scorcher past White.

The fourth quarter started with a long UMass possession in which the Minutemen took six shots. Towson then went cold on offense, hitting the pipe twice and forcing Minutemen keeper Zach Oliveri into multiple tough saves.

Towson went a man down for two minutes and killed both penalties but could not sustain an offensive possession. Mariano took UMass’s last shot with 10 seconds left, which White stopped dead. The Tigers ran out the last few seconds for the win.

The Tigers kick off a three-game homestand to end the regular season with Penn State on Saturday, April 12 at 7 p.m.

Towson tries to return to winning ways Saturday at UMass

Posted on 04 April 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – Towson men’s lacrosse hits the road for the last time in the regular season, visiting the No. 11 Minutemen of UMass on Saturday, April 5 at 12 p.m. at Garber Field.

Opening Face-Off
Hofstra snapped Towson’s six-game win streak with a 9-7 victory over the Tigers in a windy and soggy contest in Hempstead, N.Y. on March 29. UMass is coming off a 12-6 win over Hartford. The Minutemen jumped from 14th to 11th in this week’s USILA coaches poll.

Updating the Tigers
Despite a career-best four goals from freshman Joe Seider, Towson fell, 9-7, at Hofstra on Saturday. The game was tightly contested until the third quarter when Towson went 17:00 without a goal. The Tigers had a chance to tie it late, but the Pride’s Torin Varn scopped a rebounding save and scored for the final margin.

Scouting the Minutemen
UMass has been in the top 15 of the USILA coaches poll since the first week of the season. The Minutemen have ranked as high as ninth and are No. 11 this week. Their only two losses came against then-No. 18 Albany (25-10) and then-No. 19 Fairfield (11-5). Saturday’s game is the bookend to back-to-back home games, after last weekend’s 12-6 win over Hartford. UMass is 3-1 at home this season. The Minutemen’s conference win came over then-No. 5 Penn State (8-6) on March 15.

Towson-UMass Series History
This series is a long one, composed of just a few games. It started in 1963 with a four-goal UMass victory but wasn’t revived until 2010. The Minutemen hold a 4-3 advantage in the series and are 2-1 against Towson in Amherst, Mass.

Last Time Out vs. UMass – April 6, 2013 (UMass 5, Towson 9)
Devin Grimaldi posted his first career hat trick, and Andrew Wascavage added a season-high 20 saves as Towson defeated UMass, 9-5, at Unitas Stadium. Aftera  first quarter where neither team scored, Towson ran out to a 6-1 lead with three minutes left in the third frame on goals from six different players. Grimaldi tallied two of his three goals early in the fourth quarter – insurance Towson needed later when UMass closed the game on a furious three-goal run.

Greg Cuccinello tied his then-career high with two goals. Ben McCarty and Thomas DeNapoli each posted a goal for the Tigers. UMass had five different players – Kyle SmithMatt WhippenConnor MooneyColin Fleming and Will Manny – score goals. Zach Oliveri made 10 saves in net for the Minutemen.

Seider Named CAA Rookie of the Week
For the second time in 2014, freshman Joe Seider earned CAA Rookie of the Week accolades. This time, he scored a career-high four goals in a 9-7 loss at Hofstra. His first goal tied the game at 4-4 just before the half. His last goal was an EMO tally that inched Towson to within two, 8-6, with 9:26 left.

Next Up
Towson kicks off a three-game home stand to finish the regular season with a 7 p.m. game against Penn State on Saturday, April 12.

Towson improves to 3-0 in CAA with win over UMass

Posted on 06 April 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – Junior Devin Grimaldi posted his first career hat trick, and senior Andrew Wascavage added a season-high 20 saves as Towson (7-5, 3-0 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA)) defeated UMass (5-6, 0-3 CAA), 9-5, on Saturday afternoon at Unitas Stadium.

After a first quarter where neither team scored, Towson ran out to a 6-1 lead with three minutes left in the third quarter on goals from six different players. Grimaldi tallied two of his three goals early in the fourth quarter – insurance Towson needed later when UMass closed the game on a furious three-goal run.

Sophomore Greg Cuccinello tied his career high with two goals. Sophomores Rob Zoppo, Cory Dobyns and Ben McCarty and junior Thomas DeNapoli each posted a goal for the Tigers. Wascavage’s 20 saves are a season high and fell one short of his career high. UMass had five different players – Kyle Smith, Matt Whippen, Connor Mooney, Colin Fleming and Will Manny – score goals. Zach Oliveri made 10 saves in net for the Minutemen.

For just the third time all season, Towson got on the board first. Dobyns took a behind the head shot off a pass from Grimaldi at 12:40 in the second quarter. Smith took advantage of an extra-man opportunity at 6:02 in the second when the Tigers were called for a 30-second hold, but Towson then scored five unanswered goals to take its 6-1 lead.

Whippen stopped the Tigers’ run with an unassisted goal at 1:38. However, Grimaldi scored back-to-back and Cuccinello added his second when he ripped a shot past Oliveri, beating the goal high left. UMass began its comeback with 5:03 left in the game on a goal from Manny. Mooney and Fleming added their tallies at 4:21 and 3:30 in the fourth, respectively, but the effort fell short.

The Tigers return to action on Saturday, April 13 when they travel to University Park to face No. 13 Penn State.

NOTES: Grimaldi’s hat trick was the first of his career … his four points on the day were a career high … Towson is 3-0 when scoring first this season … the last time the Tigers were 3-0 in the CAA was 2010 … Towson’s win snaps UMass’ three-game win streak in the series … this is the fourth straight game the Tigers have limited their opponent to less than nine goals and fifth time in the last six games … Juniors Thomas DeNapoli and Andrew Hodgson and senior Andrew Wascavage continued streaks – DeNapoli and Hodgson each have a point in 13 consecutive games, while Wascavage has made 10+ saves in 13 straight contests.

College Men’s Lacrosse: Towson 9, UMass 5
UMass (5-6, 0-3 CAA) 0-1-1-3/5
Towson (7-5, 3-0 CAA) 0-2-4-3/9

Maryland women top UMass to advance in NCAA Tournament

Posted on 12 May 2012 by WNST Staff

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Brooke Griffin netted a game-high six points to lead No. 3 seed Maryland to a 15-12 victory against UMass Saturday in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championship.

Griffin joined freshman Kelly McPartland and senior Kristy Black as Terps with hat tricks on the day. Maryland (18-3) is now 11-1 in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Tewaaraton Award finalist Katie Schwarzmann added five points on two goals and three assists.

Defensively, the Terps were able to limit one of the nation’s top offenses, holding UMass (19-2) to 10 goals on the day. A-10 Player of the Year Katie Ferris managed only one goal Saturday. Iliana Sanza tallied a game-high six ground balls and also caused a pair of turnovers to lead a steady defensive effort.

Despite a 17-day layoff, the Terps attack looked sharp early, registering the first three goals of the game. A pesky UMass squad attempted to slow the pace of the contest in the opening half, but Maryland still possessed a 7-5 advantage heading into the locker room at the break.

A goal by Griffin 13 seconds into the second stanza appeared to set a tone early in the period. Following a UMass goal at 18:23 to shrink Maryland’s lead to three, the Terps put together a punishing 5-0 run with scores coming from five different players. Maryland held on tight at the end of the match to pick up the win and move on to the quarterfinals next Saturday.

“I’d like to congratulate UMass on a fantastic season, they came to play today and I thought they played really hard. They deserve a lot of credit,” head coach Cathy Reese said.

“Today we played against a team that chose to hold the ball on us so we needed to make sure we made our possessions count. We made a couple adjustments at halftime and I thought we did a little better in the second half. We are really happy to get through today and be where we are. We’ll be ready to go at it on Saturday.”

Maryland will play host to the winner of the Loyola (Md.)/Penn first round game next Saturday at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. First draw is slated for noon.

Towson season ends with CAA Tournament loss to UMass

Posted on 02 May 2012 by WNST Staff

AMHERST, Mass. – The Towson men’s lacrosse team saw its season come to an end Wednesday evening as the fourth-seeded Tigers fell at top-seeded and No. 1-ranked Massachusetts, 10-3, in the Colonial Athletics Association Tournament semifinals.

Towson, which finished just 3-10 last year, more than doubled its win total by finishing 7-8 and qualifying for post-season play for the first time since 2010. UMass, which will host Drexel in the CAA title game on Saturday, remains the nation’s only undefeated team at 14-0.

The Minutemen outshot Towson, 6-2, in the first quarter but didn’t manage to get onto the scoreboard until there were just six seconds remaining. Both teams played solid defense for the entire quarter until Colin Fleming tallied his first of four goals to put the Minutemen up 1-0.

UMass controlled the second quarter, scoring twice in the first 3:28 en route to outscoring the Tigers 5-0 in the period. The Minutemen outshot Towson 9-1 in the second stanza and caused four Tiger turnovers to go into halftime with a 6-0 lead.

Towson came out of the locker-rooms for the start of the third quarter with a great deal of energy, getting goals from Andrew Hodgson just 28 seconds in and Sean Maguire at the 12:35 mark to cut the UMass lead to 6-2. Freshman Justin Mabus assisted on both scores to end his rookie campaign with 11 helpers, a mark that ranks second on the team.

The Tigers had another chance to score with a man advantage, but Matt Hughes had his short shot stopped by UMass goalie Tim McCormack to preserve the Minuteman four-goal advantage.

UMass then scored a late third quarter goal and posted the first two tallies of the fourth quarter to go up 9-2. Senior Matt Lamon scored his 17th goal of the season for Towson with 6:26 remaining, but the Tigers would get no closer.

Despite earning 10 extra-man chances, Towson was outshot 30-20. Junior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage made a game-high 11 saves for the Tigers.

Towson visits UMass for CAA semifinal Wednesday

Posted on 01 May 2012 by WNST Staff

Opening Face-Off
Towson men’s lacrosse will be making its eighth appearance in the CAA Tournament since joining the league 11 years ago as the Tigers travel to top-seeded and No. 1-ranked UMass on Wednesday. The Tigers (7-7, 2-4 CAA), who have dropped four straight games, are the No. 4 seed. Towson met UMass in the CAA Tournament semifinals in 2010, topping the Minutemen 13-6 at home. Opening faceoff is set for 7 p.m. and all the action can be heard live on WNST-AM 1570 with Spiro Morekas and Hunter Lochte calling the action.

Updating the Tigers
After winning five consecutive games to become nationally-ranked, the Tigers have dropped four straight to even their record at 7-7. Towson still qualified for the CAA Tournament though by virtue of their head-to-head win at Hofstra, which also had a 2-4 mark in CAA action. Towson’s leading goal scorer during the regular season was Sean Maguire, who posted 19 goals to go along with six assists. Sophomore Thomas DeNapoli leads the Tigers in points with 27 on 15 goals and a team-high 12 assists. Faceoff specialist Ian Mills has won 88 of 157 (56 percent) matchups in the ‘X’ this year and he’s also posted a team-high 47 groundballs. In the cage for the Tigers is junior Andrew Wascavage, who has a 9.53 goals-against-average and has saved 56.7 percent of shots face this season. Wascavage is just two games removed from stopping a career-high 21 shots against No. 19 Drexel.

Scouting the Minutemen
UMass is ranked No. 1 in both the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll and the USILA Coaches Poll. At 13-0, the Minutemen are the only remaining unbeaten team in the country. UMass posted its first perfect regular-season since 1969 by winning at Delaware on Friday. The Minutemen are led by Tewaaraton nominee Will Manny, who leads the team in points (65), goals (39) and assists (26).

Towson-UMass Series History
Wednesday’s game will be just the sixth all-time meeting between Towson and UMass. The programs met in 1963, but then did not play again until 2010. The squads will be playing for the fifth time since 2010 when they battle on Wednesday. UMass leads the all-time series 3-2 after defeating the Tigers at home this season, 14-3, on April 7. Towson won the only other meeting at Garber Field, 10-9, on April 10, 2010. The Minutemen have won two straight against the Tigers.

Just 26 Days Ago…
The Tigers and Minutemen met on the lacrosse field just 26 days ago in Amherst, Mass. Towson trailed by just two at halftime, but UMass dominated the second half to snap the Tigers’ five-game winning streak. The Minutemen scored 11 of the game’s final 12 goals to pick up the 14-3 victory. The Tigers were outshot 55-24 and won just five of 19 faceoff’s. Junior goalkeeper Andrew Wascavage recorded 15 saves and the Tigers got goals from Andrew Hodgson, Sean Maguire and Matt Hughes.

Towson Headed to CAA Tournament Despite Loss To St. Joe’s

Posted on 28 April 2012 by WNST Staff

Towson Men’s Lacrosse Falls at St. Joseph’s But Qualifies For CAA Tournament
Tigers Will Play Top-Seeded UMass on Wednesday In CAA Semifinals

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The Towson men’s lacrosse team fell at Saint Joseph’s Saturday afternoon, but the Tigers still qualified for the CAA Tournament as the No. 4 seed. Towson will play at top-seeded and No. 2-ranked UMass on Wednesday.

The Tigers end the regular season 7-7 overall and tied with Hofstra for fourth in the CAA standings with a 2-4 league mark. Hofstra, which fell at No. 15 Penn State in double overtime Saturday, finds itself outside the CAA Tournament based on the Tigers winning in Hempstead on March 31.

Towson found itself in an early 2-0 hole after Bobby Hurley and Ryan McGee tallied first quarter goals for St. Joseph’s. Freshman Robby Zoppo got the Tigers on the board at the 4:11 mark of the first quarter as he tallied his ninth goal of the season off a feed from Matt Hanzsche. Towson then tied the game before the end of the opening stanza a senior Carl Iacona posted his 13th goal of the season.

Defense dominated the second quarter as neither team was able to break through on the scoreboard and the game remained tied at two going into the third quarter.

The Hawks dominated the third quarter, holding Towson scoreless for the second straight quarter and getting three goals from three different players.

After an early goal in the fourth quarter, St. Joseph’s found itself up 6-2.

The Tigers broke a 24:54 scoreless drought when senior Michael Brashears blasted a low shot from 15-yards out to get the Tigers within 6-3. Senior Sean Maguire assisted on the Brashears goal.

Despite getting the ball into Hawks territory on several occasions in the final six minutes, Towson was unable to score the rest of the way. The Tigers turned the ball over seven times in the fourth quarter and 12 times overall.

The win for Saint Joseph’s was its first Colonial Athletic Association victory during its two years in the league. The Hawks end the year riding a three-game winning streak and finish 6-9 overall and 1-5 in the CAA.

Towson will play at UMass on Wednesday, May 2 at 7:00 p.m. The Tigers fell in Amherst, Mass. on April 7, 14-3 after trailing just 4-2 at halftime.
