Area College Lacrosse Preview

April 19, 1991|By Doug Brown


* WHERE: Denton Field, College Park.

* OUTLOOK: Johns Hopkins midfielder Adam Wright, who has 13 goals and three assists, is doubtful with a shoulder separation suffered in last week's rout of Army. Maryland has lost 17 of its last 18 games against Hopkins. The Terps' lone win during this stretch was during the 1987 regular season, but they lost to the Blue Jays in the NCAA tournament that year. No. 6 Maryland (6-2) lost to North Carolina by two points and to Virginia by one. No. 3 Hopkins (5-2) crushed Virginia, 16-6, but bowed to Carolina, 11-6. Maryland would love to play this one in Byrd Stadium and charge admission but can't because the place is being renovated. At Denton Field, Terp coach Dick Edell quipped, "the first 10,000 will get in free."


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

* WHERE: UMBC Stadium.

* RADIO: WITH-AM 1230.

* OUTLOOK: Sophomore midfielder Kevin Anderson may start in the goal for No. 8 Loyola (5-3) in place of ailing Tim Dunnigan (shoulder) and freshman Andy Manos (viral infection). Anderson, a 6-foot-4 basketball starter, played the final four minutes in goal in last week's loss to Duke for the first time since his senior year at Loyola High, where he was first-team All-Metro. "Kevin's an athlete," coach Dave Cottle said. "He likes the challenge." Loyola has won five of the last six against UMBC, but still trails in the rivalry, 14-7. UMBC (7-4) is coming off a 17-11 win over Mount St. Mary's.


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

* WHERE: Emmitsburg.

* OUTLOOK: With three games remaining, the Mount (7-3) is heading for its seventh straight winning season, the last three in Division I. In its 17-11 loss to UMBC Wednesday, the Mount made a game of it for a half, when it was 6-6. "The Mount is improving all the time," said Loyola coach Dave Cottle, who scouted that game. "Hey, they beat Dartmouth. I saw them beat Notre Dame, and I knew then they'd give UMBC a game for at least a half." Charlie Horning leads the Mount with 30 goals.


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

* WHERE: Minnegan Stadium.

* RADIO: WCVT-FM 89.7.

* OUTLOOK: No. 9 Towson State (6-2) and No. 15 Navy (5-4) both need a win to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. The only other time the Tigers played Navy, in their 1975 opener, they lost, 13-9. Towson's leading goal scorer, Rob Shek, missed Wednesday's 19-9 romp over Drexel with a strained shoulder, but will play against the Mids. Goalie Richard Betcher also sat out that game, but only because coach Carl Runk wanted to let HTC freshman Tim Colt play against his older brother John of Drexel. An attackman, John had three goals and five assists; Tim made 11 saves. The Mids, who beat Georgetown Wednesday, 13-6, are led by Dennis Nealon (19 goals, 20 assists) and John Quinn (16 and seven).


* WHEN: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

* WHERE: Salisbury.

* OUTLOOK: Salisbury State, top-ranked in Division III at 11-0, has tied the school record for longest lacrosse winning streak, set in 1984. The Sea Gulls are 14-1 at home since the start of 1990. No. 14 Hampden-Sydney (7-4) will have its hands full. The Salisbury trio of Rusty Pritzlaff, Rick Berkman and Eric Ungleich is averaging 10.3 goals. The midfield of Chris Boylee, Kevin Hohner and Jeff Chenowith has amassed 70 points.
