Navy Wins Patriot League Battle Over Lafayette

Posted on 10 March 2012 by WNST Staff

EASTON, Pa. — Sophomore attackman Tucker Hull (Charlotte, N.C.) punched in three goals and dealt out five assists to lead the Navy men’s lacrosse team (2-3, 1-1 Patriot League) to a 12-7 victory over Patriot League foe Lafayette (2-3, 0-1 PL) Saturday afternoon at Rappolt Field in Easton, Pa. A strong offensive display by the Mids which featured goals by eight different players helped Navy snap a three-game skid and give it its first conference win of the season.

Navy is the first team to score double digits against the Leopards this season as Lafayette came into the game ranked third nationally in scoring defense, giving up just 6.50 per game.

“It feels awfully good to get back in the win column,” said first-year Navy head coach Rick Sowell.  “We came into the game committed to playing a second midfield and go a little deeper at attack and defense and I was thrilled to see it play out as it did.  We received some solid contributions from a good number of players today.

“We made no bones about it, we felt like today’s game was critical,” added Sowell.  “Having lost three in a row, we needed to get this win especially with such a big stretch coming up this week with games against Towson and Holy Cross.  We are taking it a game at a time, but we needed this win in the worst way and I was proud of the guys for stepping up and getting it done.”

Sophomore midfielder Pat Durkin (Germantown, Md.) put the Midshipmen on the scoreboard first, taking a Jordan Seivold (Tampa, Fla.) pass and sticking it past Lafayette keeper Andrijko Andrusko from seven yards out at the 11:13 mark in the first.  Lafayette, however, answered with back-to-back goals just 46 seconds apart, taking a 2-1 lead with just over eight minutes remaining in the opening period.  The Mids evened the score at two all when Hull fed rookie Gabe Voumard (Cape May, N.J.) who put a nice move on his defender at the crease, scoring his first goal in a Navy uniform.

The Mids took the lead at 3-2 when Hull once again found Voumard open for a three-yard beauty up the middle at the 12:38 mark in the second.  The Leopards, though, tied the game right back up a minute later when Doug Prusoff used a roll dodge to get free of Navy short stick midfielder Jay Mann (Cockeysville, Md.), creating enough space for the unassisted goal.

Navy took the lead for good when pole Pat Kiernan (Ridgewood, N.J.) intercepted a Lafayette pass and threw an outlet pass the length of the field to senior co-captain Taylor Reynolds (Babylon, N.Y.) who immediately found sophomore attackman Austin Heneveld (East Hampton, N.Y.) on the crease.  it marked Heneveld’s first goal of the season and gave the Mids a 4-3 lead with 5:38 to go.

The Mids went on the score two goals in the final minute of the first half with Bryce Dabbs (Damascus, Md.) sending a worm burner up the middle from 8 yards out off an assist from Hull.  Following an RJ Wickham (Penn Yan, N.Y.) save with 15 seconds left, Wickham got his outlet pass to Kiernan who again sent a long pass down field to sophomore Sam Jones (Annapolis, Md.).  Jones quickly fed Hull who was standing on the crease to give the Midshipmen a 6-3 lead at the half.

Navy wasted little time in adding to their lead, as co-captain Logan West (Berlin, Md.) won the opening draw of the second half and got the ball to Hull.  Hull dealt the assist to Kiernan, the trail man, who fired in his second goal of the season.

The Leopards weren’t giving up, however, as Lafayette scored the next two goals, including an extra-man strike with 4:25 to play in the quarter, to cut the lead back to two at 7-5.

The Mids, who have struggled in the fourth quarter this season, made a statement by scoring four goals in just over three minutes to open the final stanza and salt away the game.  Hull played a huge role in the run, scoring two goals and adding an assist on a third.  Had senior middie Nikk Davis (Cockeysville, Md.) not dodged his defenseman to get free, Hull would have been credited with a second assist as he found Davis who tabbed his second goal of the year.

Hull, who produced his fourth hat trick of the season, led all scorers with his eight-point performance.  His five assists not only go down as a career high, it also marked the most assists by a Navy player since Andy Warner distributed six in last year’s win over Towson.  Voumard and Kiernan finished the game with two goals apiece, while Bryce Dabbs (Damascus, Md.), Davis, Reynolds, Durkin and Heneveld also chipped in goals for the Mids.

Kiernan played one of the best games of his young career.  While he notched a pair of goals, defensively he caused four Lafayette turnovers and picked up five ground balls.

“Pat makes a huge impact in the game for us,” said Sowell.  “We definitely felt it when he went out with his broken hand.  It took him a few weeks to get back into it, but to have him back in game shape mades a big, big difference for us.  It’s definitely good to have him on our side!”

Junior close defenseman Austin Miller (North Bethesda, Md.) turned in a pair of takeaways and picked up three ground balls.  Meanwhile, Wickham surrendered seven goals while making 11 saves in goal.

Lafayette was led by Prusoff, Colin Serling and Will Heffernan who scored two goals apiece, while Andrusko and Jake Hyatt split time in goal where the tandem made a combined six saves and each gave up six goals.

The Midshipmen will be back in action on Tuesday when they make the short trip to Towson, Md. to face the Tigers of Towson at 7:30 pm.  The game will be carried live by AM1570 WNST.net.

Morgan F Jackson Quits Team After Loss

Posted on 07 February 2012 by WNST Staff

Immediately following Morgan State University’s 54-46 loss to Howard University Monday night at Hill Field House, head coach Todd Bozeman announced leading scorer DeWayne Jackson had quit the team.

Jackson played ten minutes in the Bears’ loss to the Bison, scoring ten points. Jackson entered Monday Night’s game averaging 30.7 minutes per game this season for the Bears and scoring an average of 13.4 points per game. As a freshman in 2009-2010, Jackson was a double digit scorer for the Bears team that won the MEAC Championship and reached the NCAA Tournament.

Jackson’s decision to quit the team followed a bizarre second half against the Bison. Unhappy with the effort he received from his starters, Bozeman pulled all five just two minutes after intermission. He inserted five reserves, including seldom used forward Thair Heath.

Bozeman slowly re-inserted his starters into the game but left Jackson on the bench. The junior forward out of Bowie High School made his frustration apparent, glaring back at MSU’s head coach and eventually shouting at him about his continued benching. Bozeman never made any noticeable responses to Jackson’s glares or yelling.

As the second half wore on, Jackson became unwilling to participate in team huddles. During timeouts he would stand outside the team’s conversations despite the pleading of the team’s assistant coaches.

Jackson made a quick exit from the team’s locker room following the game without talking to reporters. Bozeman announced Jackson’s decision in a short meeting with reporters, noting the junior’s unwillingness to be coached in the second half. He also explained the team would “move on” with Jackson.

Morgan State fell to 5-16 (3-7 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) with the loss. They return to action Saturday when they welcome Maryland-Eastern Shore to Hill Field House.

A Morgan State who spoke to WNST.net reporter Glenn Clark after the game left open the possibility that Jackson could change his mind and return to the team.

(WNST.net’s Glenn Clark filed this report.)

Source: Maryland to Hire Houston DC Stewart To Same Post

Posted on 16 January 2012 by WNST Staff

A source with knowledge of the situation tells WNST.net the University of Maryland will hire Brian Stewart to fill their vacant Defensive Coordinator position. The school agreed to a buyout with Todd Bradford last week, he served as DC last year during head coach Randy Edsall’s first season in College Park.

The hiring was first reported by the Big Ten Network’s Tom Dienhart.

Stewart spent the past two seasons in the same position at the University of Houston. He spent the 2009 season on Andy Reid’s staff with the Philadelphia Eagles and spent the two years before that as the Defensive Coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. Previous National Football League coaching experience includes time as the secondary coach for the San Diego Chargers (2004-2006) and as assistant Defensive Backs coach with the Houston Texans (2002-2003).

Prior to joining the Cougars, Stewart had college coaching experience as a defensive assistant on the staffs at Syracuse (2001), Missouri (1996, 1999-2000), San Jose State (1997-1998) and as an offensive assistant at Northern Arizona (1995) and Cal Poly (1993-1994).

Stewart is originally from San Diego, California and played college football at NAU.

The Terrapins also made a change at Offensive Coordinator following their 2-10 campaign. Gary Crowton left the program and was replaced by former New Mexico head coach Mike Locksley.

More information on this story as it becomes available.

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 13 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Honorable Mention: High School Basketball-Bel Air @ Perry Hall (Wednesday 6:30pm), St. Frances @ John Carroll (Wednesday 7pm); Mixed Martial Arts: Strikeforce-Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal (Saturday 10pm from San Diego live on Showtime)

10. Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group (Thursday 7pm Rams Head Live); Bret Michaels (Wednesday 7pm & 10pm Rams Head on Stage); Pietasters (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Devo (Thursday 8pm State Theatre), Phil Vassar (Sunday 8pm State Theatre); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Anthony Hamilton “Back to Love” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I am not a Lyle Lovett fan, but I am a human being. Because I am a human being, I am ABSOLUTELY a fan of this tune. One of the happiest days in my life may have been the day I walked off a hangover into the DC Farmers’ Market and saw a folk band playing the song. If it hadn’t been in DC it would have been the HAPPIEST…

Is there any chance I could go see Bret Michaels and skip everything besides this?

I saw the Pietasters most recently at Artscape this summer. They were fantastic. They always are.

Virginia Coalition is ABSOLUTELY the best band you’re not listening to. Unless you’re not listening to U2. There aren’t people that don’t listen to U2, are there?

9. Glenn Clark’s Christmas Party (Saturday 8pm undisclosed location in Monkton); “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” & “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol out in theaters (Friday); Christian Finnegan (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv)

This is how last year’s Christmas party ended…

That’s my girlfriend cleaning up vomit. The vomit happened to be on the ceiling. It is what it is.

Oh…and last year’s party also involved the following….


Ours were of course much manlier than this, but you get the point. This is not to be missed…like…say…ever.

CAA Showdown Saturday Night on WNST as Towson Hosts George Mason

Posted on 03 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Tigers Open CAA Play Against George Mason Saturday

Towson Men’s Basketball To Face Fifth Team Ranked Or Receiving Votes In National Polls

TOWSON, Md. – The Tigers are set to open Colonial Athletic Association play Saturday evening against rival George Mason. Tip time is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Towson Center and all fans attending the NCAA FCS Football Playoff game at Johnny Unitas® Stadium can attend the Tigers’ men’s basketball game free of charge.

Saturday night’s game can be heard live on AM1570 WNST.net. Coverage begins immediately following the conclusion of the Towson-Lehigh NCAA FCS Playoff game and can be heard here.

Towson (0-6) is coming off an 86-56 setback at UMass on Wednesday evening. Senior Robert Nwankwo posted his third double-double of the season with 19 points and 14 rebounds against the Minutemen.

The Tigers continued to dominate the glass in their last outing, holding a 50-43 rebounding advantage in the loss. Towson has now outrebounded its opponents in all but two games this season.

Including Saturday’s contest, the young Tigers quad will have played five teams ranked or receiving votes in the national polls.

George Mason, which is receiving votes in the latest ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, is riding a three-game winning streak and coming off a 61-57 victory over Bucknell. The Patriots are led by Preseason All-CAA First Team honoree Ryan Pearson. The senior ranked in the top-15 of both scoring and rebounding among league players last season, and is the conference’s fifth highest returning scorer. This season Pearson is averaging 20.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

Saturday’s game will be the 38th all-time meeting between Towson and George Mason. The Tigers won six of the first nine meetings between the squads, but have won just two of the last 28. George Mason has never lost to Towson as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. Their last loss to the Tigers was a 78-71 defeat in Towson in 1993.

Towson, which has played the ninth toughest non-conference schedule in the country thus far, is coming off a 66-46 setback against Oregon State Saturday.

UMass (5-2), which started the year 4-0, is coming off an 85-61 defeat against the College of Charleston in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas.

Chaz Williams leads the Minutemen in scoring at 14.1 points per game while Terrell Vinson leads the way on the glass averaging 6.0 rebounds a contest.

The squads have not met since UMass handed Towson an 82-55 loss in the 1993 Preseason NIT. That contest was the first ever college basketball game televised on ESPN2.

Towson To Host Lehigh December 3 in FCS Playoffs

Posted on 20 November 2011 by WNST Staff

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – After winning their first Colonial Athletic Association football championship, the Tigers will host Lehigh University in the second round of the 2011 NCAA Division I Football Championship on Saturday, Dec. 3 at Johnny Unitas® Stadium, it has been announced by NCAA officials.

More information on the match-up, including the time of the game, will be announced as it becomes available. (The game will air live on AM1570 WNST.net.)

Now 9-2 on the season, the Tigers posted a 7-1 record in the CAA after defeating Rhode Island by a 28-17 margin on Saturday afternoon for their third straight win. The win capped off one of the most successful regular seasons in school history and completed a tremendous turnaround for the Tigers, who were 1-10 last year.

Led by sophomore quarterback Grant Enders, the Tigers overcame a 10-0 first quarter deficit to earn the win. Enders, a two-time selection as the CAA Offensive Player of the Week, completed 20 of 26 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns. He also led the Tigers by rushing for 60 yards on nine carries.

Freshman tailback Terrance West, who leads the Tigers in rushing with 1,242 yards, was limited to just 52 yards against the Rams on Saturday. However, he scored two rushing touchdowns, upping his NCAA FCS-leading total to 27 in 10 games this season.

Currently 10-1, the Patriot League champion Mountain Hawks have won nine straight games following a 37-13 victory over Lafayette on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Stadium. The Mountain Hawks will be making their second straight appearance in the NCAA FCS playoffs after reaching the second round last year.

The Tigers and the Mountain Hawks will be meeting for the 12th time in a series that Lehigh leads by a 10-1 margin. However, the teams have not met since 2003 when Lehigh earned a 35-3 victory over the Tigers. Towson’s lone win in the series came in 2002 when the Tigers edged Lehigh by a 23-19 margin at Unitas Stadium.

Tickets for the Towson-Lehigh game are available by calling the Towson Athletics Ticket Office at 1-855-TU-TIGER or by visiting TowsonTigers.com.

Here are the Details on our “Coats & Cans in Memory of Fergy” Charity Drive

Posted on 31 October 2011 by WNST Staff

From Monday, October 31 through Friday, November 18, WNST.net will collect canned goods and non-perishable food items at the AM1570 WNST studios (1550 Hart Rd. Towson, MD 21286).  Those items will be collected during normal business hours (6am-6pm).

We will also collect at all scheduled WNST events, including “Monday Night Live” with Baltimore Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo at Hightopps in Timonium, our Miller Lite Towson pep rallies at the Greene Turtle and other events specific to the drive that we will announce in the future.

We will give those items to the Canton Baptist Church for their distribution to Baltimore’s homeless and we’ll also give some of the donated food to the Bea Gaddy Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Last year we donated 2,400 cans to the Canton Baptist Church.  This year we’d like to do 5,000 cans. For counting purposes, we count EVERYTHING, meaning if someone drops off oatmeal or some other “non-can” item, we count that as a can.

In addition, we’re going to ask that members of the WNST commuinty who can’t contribute food (or even if they can) to donate a penny per-can to a scholarship fund that has been set up for Fergy (in White Marsh)’s children.

Listeners/readers can make their checks out to:

The Cameron and Adrianna Commodari Scholarship Fund and send them to Drew Forrester’s attention at the radio station. We will announce the amount of cans raised on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We ask that WNST community members donate UP TO 5,000 cans-so donations will not exceed $50 no matter how many cans are collected.Fergy’s brother Marshall will come to the studio sometime in December and do a few minutes on the air and we’ll present him with the money. We obviously won’t collect any of the money until after the canned food drive is over on November 18 and we see how many cans we did.

If you don’t have the important information on Fergy (Fernando Commodari), you should know that he was a longtime listener of the station and an active supporter and contributor to any and all of our charitable endeavors.  He brought 100 cans of food to the Fullerton Pub last December when Drew & Glenn Clark did the first canned food drive.  Anytime we did some sort of fund-raiser, he always contributed. He was killed in a car accident this past July.

Once the canned food drive is over, we’ll start with the coats and winter apparel drive.  We’ll take coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats, gloves, etc.  All of those items will be donated to Helping Up Mission downtown.  The coat/apparel drive will run from Monday, November 21 through Friday, December 16.  We will drop off those items on Tuesday, December 20 at the Helping Up Mission downtown.

Please help us make the most out of these three worthwhile charity drives. As you know, we pride ourselves at WNST for being a community of contributors, sponsors, listeners, readers, Twitter followers, Facebook friends, etc. The one thing we have in common is that we all care DEEPLY about this area. We’re grateful for the opportunity to try to do further good.
