Today's games

April 20, 2002|By Bill Free

No. 2 Johns Hopkins (8-1) at No. 14 Navy (7-4)

Site: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis

Time: Noon

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: It will be a festive day in Annapolis, with Navy trying to put on a show for the expected crowd of 20,000 attending the first Navy Spring Festival, which will include the spring football Blue-Gold game and the fly-bys by F-14s and P-3s. Hopkins hopes to counter the atmosphere with the same kind of clutch lacrosse that has carried the Jays to five straight victories.

No. 18 Army (6-4) at UMBC (3-6)

Site: UMBC Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

TV: Ch. 2

Outlook: The Retrievers have lost three in a row to top 15 teams, with the latest setback coming three nights ago at home to Towson, 17-8. Army makes its first appearance of the season in the Top 20, thanks to an 11-8 upset over then-No. 20 Notre Dame last Saturday.

No. 9 Loyola (7-2) at Villanova (4-6)

Site: Villanova Stadium, Villanova, Pa.

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Loyola was brought back to Earth with a resounding thud last week by Butler, which used a four-goal run to shock the Greyhounds, 7-6, in Indianapolis. The Greyhounds hit the road for a fifth straight game against an always-dangerous Villanova team. Loyola has scored just six goals in two straight losses after scoring 10 or more in 45 of its previous 48 games.

Drexel (7-4) at No. 15 Towson (5-4)

Site: Towson University Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: Towson flashed some of the talent Wednesday night against UMBC that everyone was expecting to see all season, but it was probably too late to gain a berth in the NCAA tournament. Drexel has won three straight against unranked teams after being blitzed by Hofstra, 18-10.

Siena (1-8) at Mount St. Mary's (3-9)

Site: Alumni Field, Emmitsburg

Time: Noon

Outlook: The Mount had stars in its eyes in the first half Tuesday night, leading Navy 6-5 at halftime. But the Mids ended the fun by scoring four straight goals for a 10-5 win. Siena is coming off a 17-5 whipping by Albany.
