Bayhawks fall, 12-7, on road despite Turner's 17 saves

Goalkeeper Kip Turner (Severn) was spectacular at times in making 17 saves, but several lengthy offensive droughts doomed the Chesapeake Bayhawks in a 12-7 loss to the host Charlotte Hounds on Saturday. Midfielder Peet Poillon (UMBC), who was making his season debut, scored two goals for Chesapeake, which put less than half its shots (17 of 35) on goal. Attackman Brendan Mundorf (UMBC) added a goal and an assist. "We do not have very good chemistry on offense at this point. We're not passing the way we should and we are throwing the ball away too much. We try to shoot our way out of trouble and that usually doesn't work," Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said. Attackman Mike Sawyer (Loyola Maryland) scored three goals for Charlotte. Dean Gibbons Hounds faceoff specialist Tim Fallon won 14 of 21 draws. "We are not a good faceoff team right now. That is one of many areas that we need to improve," Cottle said. "We need to work on all of the little things that go into winning lacrosse."

Ring Weekend, a possible entry, breezes 6 furlongs

Ring Weekend breezed 6 furlongs in 1 minute, 131/5 seconds at Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton on Saturday morning in preparation for a possible start in the Preakness. "He galloped out a mile in 1:41. That's what I was most pleased about, how he galloped out," said trainer Graham Motion, whose horse was ridden by longtime assistant and exercise rider Alice Clapham. Ring Weekend, who captured the Grade 3 Tampa Bay Derby and finished second in the Calder Derby, missed the Kentucky Derby because of a fever. The gelded son of Tapit missed a few days of training but has been working well since the setback.
