For the second straight year, UMBC could not keep up with Albany in the America East men's lacrosse title game. The No. 13 Great Danes (11-5) outshot the Retrievers (8-7) by 26-13 in the first half to take an 8-4 lead at the break, then scored eight times in the third quarter en route to a 20-11 win Saturday in Stony Brook, N.Y. Albany also routed UMBC for the championship last year, 19-10. Great Danes attackmen Miles and Lyle Thompson scored seven and three goals, respectively, and become the first pair of Division I teammates with 100 points in a season.

The UMBC defense had the daunting task Saturday of trying to shut down three Albany attackmen who have almost uncanny awareness of one another on the field, two of whom are among the most prolific scorers in NCAA Division I lacrosse. The Great Danes' Lyle and Miles Thompson entered the game ranked first and second nationally in points per game, averaging 6.6 and 6.1, respectively. The duo, along with cousin Ty, spent the afternoon trading passes, firing behind-the-back shots and generally causing havoc in front of the UMBC goal.

U.S. Army Capt. Benjamin Harrow, who lost both legs in a mine explosion in Afghanistan and spoke to the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team on Thursday night as part of the program's partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, delivered what coach Dave Pietramala described as the perfect message for a team in a three-game losing streak before Friday's night's 13-8 victory over No. 19 Albany at Homewood Field. “One of our keys each week is we focus on what we can control,” Pietramala said.

Johns Hopkins has enjoyed a 10-2 advantage in its series with Albany, but the Great Danes pulled off a 10-9 upset last spring. The Blue Jays, who are 3-2 at Homewood Field this season, are trying to avoid three home losses for the first time since 1996. No. 19 Albany (4-4) has alternated wins and losses in its last five games, but is still considered the favorite to capture the America East tournament for the second year in a row. While much of the national attention has centered on the starting attack of seniors Miles and Ty Thompson and junior Lyle Thompson , the offense has gotten contributions from a midfield that includes sophomore John Maloney (13 goals and two assists)

No. 10 Johns Hopkins unveiled a different look on defense in Saturday's 13-9 loss to No. 5 North Carolina when junior Michael Pellegrino shifted from the midfield to join senior Jack Reilly and junior Robert Enright on close defense and freshman Nick Fields started as long-stick midfielder. The impetus behind the move was to match Pellegrino's speed with that of Tar Heels junior attackman Joey Sankey, but it's not the first time the Blue Jays (5-3) have tinkered with their defensive personnel.

In a span of three short months, Albany's trio of brothers Miles and Lyle Thompson and cousin Ty Thompson have graced the front page of The New York Times and the cover of the Inside Lacrosse magazine. In doing so, they have becomes role models for the lacrosse-playing youngsters at the Onondaga Reservation in upstate New York where they grew up. “A lot of little kids on our reservation hit us up on the social networks,” Miles Thompson said as the No. 19 Great Danes traveled to Baltimore for Friday night's game against No. 10 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore.

Homewood Field in Baltimore is one of the more tradition-rich sites for men's lacrosse, and more than one opponent challenging Johns Hopkins has felt slightly intimidated by the venue, the nine NCAA championship banners and the blue- and white-clad crowd. But after scoring a 10-9 decision against the Blue Jays at Homewood on April 5, 2013, Albany - which will pay another visit on Friday at 7 p.m. - has no qualms about entering enemy territory. “We have a lot of guys who played last year and are playing again this weekend, knowing that they can step onto that field and can play well and can compete with them,” said Great Danes coach Scott Marr, a former attackman at Johns Hopkins and former offensive coordinator at Maryland.
