UMBC's Hopmann working way back into shape

Junior midfielder making up for lost time caused by hamstring injury

March 06, 2012|By Edward Lee

The hamstring that sidelined Scott Hopmann is no longer an issue as the UMBC junior midfielder has registered an assist in each of his last two contests.

But the Annapolis native and St. Mary’s graduate has taken four shots with zero goals, and coach Don Zimmerman said Hopmann is working off the rust.

“Scott’s looking pretty good,” Zimmerman said Monday. “I don’t think he’s fully back to where he needs to be. I think his hamstring is fine, but because he missed so much time, he’s not in the kind of shape that he needs to be in. But it’s good to see him out there, and he’s contributing in practice. He got some game time against Fairfield. So we’re just going to keep working with him and get him back to where he’s 100 percent.”
