Howard goalie Milton Lee is hospitalized and recuperating from surgery in the aftermath of a serious automobile accident last weekend. Lions lacrosse coach Dan Ross expected backup keeper David Roseman to step in and take over the goaltending duties, but Roseman had to attend a funeral during Monday's showdown with Glenelg.
"We met at 7 o'clock Monday morning and I asked who wanted to play goalie," said Ross. "A junior midfielder, Sean Foster, volunteered, so we worked with him during his lunch period and he played very well."
The Lions defeated Glenelg, 15-6, to run their record to 11-0, only to lose to Liberty last night, 11-8.
Roseman was available last night, but Foster was in goal, making 10 saves.
"We're all thinking about Milton," said Ross, who said the starting job is Foster's to lose. Lee suffered a broken pelvis, a broken femur and a broken jaw, and he fought off a life-threatening post-operative fever. "We wish him a speedy recovery," Ross said. "That's more important to us right now."
