May 06, 2010|By Edward Lee | The Baltimore Sun

No. 3 Maryland (10-3)

Coming up: At Colgate, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Terps and Red Raiders meet for the first time. With 10 goals this season, John Haus is the first freshman midfielder to reach that mark since Brian Zeller scored 12 in 1997.

No. 12 Loyola (9-3)

Coming up: Vs. No. 20 Johns Hopkins, Saturday, noon, Ridley Athletic Complex

Comment: If the Greyhounds want to cement a spot in the NCAA tournament, they will have to end a 10-game losing streak to the Blue Jays. Senior faceoff specialist John Schiavone is just three ground balls away from tying the mark of 74 he set last season, which ranks ninth on the school's single-season list.

No. 20 Johns Hopkins (6-7)

Coming up: At No. 12 Loyola, Saturday, noon

Comment: A 39th consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament is at stake when the Blue Jays visit the Greyhounds. Senior attackman Steven Boyle is the first Hopkins player to register more than 30 goals and 20 assists in a single season since Kyle Barrie finished with 37 goals and 20 assists in 2003.

Mount St. Mary's (10-4)

Coming up: Vs. Marist, today, 4 p.m.

Comment: The Mountaineers have a chance to capture the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament crown and the league's automatic qualifier for the first time since 2003. Freshman attackman Andrew Scalley earned MAAC Player of the Week honors after posting eight goals and two assists in two victories, including a career-best five goals in the team's 13-9 win over Marist last Saturday.

Towson (7-7)

Coming up: Vs. Delaware, Saturday, 2:30 p.m., Johnny Unitas Stadium

Comment: The Tigers have won four of the past five meetings with the Blue Hens, including the past three. Senior midfielder Christian Pastirik has scored three or more goals in five games this season, including four times at home.
