Today's games

April 11, 2001|By Bill Free

Hartford (4-3) at No. 10 Towson (6-2) Site: Minnegan Stadium

Time: 3 p.m.

Outlook: The Kyle Campbell-led Towson team has cracked the Top 10 for the first time since 1994, and the Tigers can take another step toward clinching home-field advantage for the four-team America East playoffs with a victory over the Hawks today. Towson is 2-0 in the conference and Hartford is 0-1. The winner of the playoffs gets an automatic bid to the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament. On Saturday, Campbell became the first Towson player ever to score seven goals in back-to-back games, getting seven against Hofstra to duplicate his seven against Loyola. Campbell is fourth in the nation in goals scored (27). Hartford has lost three straight.

Radford (2-7) at No. 7 Loyola (5-2)

Site: Curley Field

Time: 3 p.m.

Outlook: From Syracuse to Radford goes Loyola, about as sharp a contrast as one can find in college lacrosse, as Syracuse is one of the most feared teams and Radford is dropping the sport. The Highlanders picked up their second win of the season Saturday, beating Division II Catawba, 14-10. Loyola is coming off one of the biggest wins in school history, scoring the last five goals to stun then-No. 1 Syracuse, 14-13, in overtime Saturday. Gavin Prout had four goals and three assists in the upset. He leads the team with 21 goals and 14 assists. This is the fifth of seven straight home games for Loyola.

Lehigh (2-7) at Mt. St. Mary's (5-4)

Site: Mount St. Mary's College Lacrosse Field

Time: 3 p.m.

Outlook: The Mount will attempt to win its first game outside of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, taking on Lehigh, which most recently lost, 16-10, to unranked Army. The Mount swept a weekend doubleheader from Manhattan and Marist last weekend. Sophomore Josh Warfield scored a career-high five goals for the Emmitsburg school Saturday in a 17-12 victory over Marist.
