College Lacrosse Report

April 15, 1991|By Doug Brown




L * WHAT'S AHEAD: At Maryland Saturday (1 p.m.), Denton Field.

* FACEOFFS: Johns Hopkins midfielder Adam Wright is questionable for the Maryland game after suffering a slight shoulder separation in Saturday's 18-8 rout of Army. He had a goal and two assists before departing . . . Matt Panetta had four goals and two assists, and leads the No. 3 Blue Jays in both departments (16 and 20) . . . Panetta scored twice during Hopkins' 5-0 run at the game's outset . . . Goalies Scott Gardina and Ian Hobbs were required to make only 15 saves.

LOYOLA (5-3)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: At UMBC Saturday (1 p.m.).

* FACEOFFS: Loyola goalie Tim Dunnigan is probable for the UMBC game after missing the 11-10 loss to Duke with a sprained right shoulder suffered last week in practice . . . Freshman Andy Manos made 13 saves in Dunnigan's absence, yielding late in the game to Kevin Anderson with the Greyhounds trailing by two . . . Anderson, a midfielder who was a goalie at Loyola High, was inserted by coach Dave Cottle in the hope he could spark the offense by triggering the fastbreak. Loyola dropped to No. 8.


* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Johns Hopkins Saturday (1 p.m.), Denton Field.

* FACEOFFS: Coach Dick Edell allowed that No. 6 Maryland is "playing well" after Saturday's 10-6 win over Navy before 2,674 at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium . . . He finds it ironic that in the Terps' two narrow losses, to North Carolina and Virginia, "It was the best we've played." . . . The Terps' Rob Wurzburger scored three times to raise his career goals total to 118 and move past Jim Wilkerson into third place on the school's all-time list behind Pete Worstell (126) and Frank Urso (127) . . . North Carolina clinched the No. 1 seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament April 26-27 at Duke with its 11-0 victory over Virginia.


* WHAT'S AHEAD: At UMBC Wednesday (3 p.m.); vs. Dickinson Saturday (2 p.m.).

* FACEOFFS: Junior attackman Charlie Horning raised his team-leading totals to 29 goals and 24 assists with five and six in the Mount's 14-8 romp past Radford.

NAVY (4-4)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Georgetown Wednesday (5 p.m.), Dewey Field or AstroTurf Field, depending on the weather; at Towson State Saturday (7:30 p.m.).

* FACEOFFS: After the 10-6 loss to Maryland, Navy coach Bryan Matthews maintained he didn't even want to talk about the playoffs. "We have three more tough games left," he said, referring to Georgetown, Towson State and Johns Hopkins. "If we win, we get in." . . . John Quinn scored four goals to raise his season total to 15 for Navy, now ranked No. 15.


* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Drexel Wednesday (3 p.m.) and Navy Saturday (7:30 p.m.), both at Minnegan Stadium.

* FACEOFFS: Since the demoralizing loss to Loyola, Towson has crushed Bucknell and Hofstra, the latter by 20-8 Saturday, and moved to No. 9 . . . Navy will be another matter, and Towson will have to beat the Mids to keep its playoff hopes alive . . . Glenn Smith, John Blatchley, Michael DeSimone and Rob Shek led the Tigers' assault against Hofstra.

UMBC (6-4)

* WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Mount St. Mary's Wednesday (3 p.m.) and Loyola Saturday (1 p.m.), both at UMBC Stadium.

* FACEOFFS: Steve Marohl needed one point to become the 12th UMBC player to reach 100, and got eight in the 15-9 win over Drexel . . . Playing only the first half, goalie Bob Bailey held Drexel to one goal and registered 17 saves.
