They began their collegiate careers on the bench, where freshmen typically reside, but Johns Hopkins attackmen Bobby Benson and Adam Doneger are no longer anonymous. When they take the field at the University of Maryland's Byrd Stadium as starters on Saturday in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament semifinals against Syracuse, Benson and Doneger will be marked men on the main stage. "It's all starting to make sense now," Doneger said. "We're freshmen, and we're starting in the Final Four.

For four seasons, Johns Hopkins lacrosse coach Dave Pietramala had to find a way to defend Virginia attackman Steele Stanwick . On Saturday, the roles will be reversed because No. 8 Virginia has to find a way to stop his brother Wells, an attackman for the No. 10 Blue Jays. A lot has changed for Hopkins and Virginia in recent years. Hopkins' offense is no longer centered on midfielders, but quarterbacked by Stanwick, a junior from Boys' Latin who has a team-high 20 assists as well as nine goals.

It's not that Bobby and Joe Benson didn't talk about how great it would be to win a national championship., As kids growing up in Baltimore - lacrosse sticks never far out of reach - the Bensons had their dreams, too, yet in those dreams, glory for one sibling always seemed to come at the expense of the other. "I can remember a couple of conversations where we talked about going to different schools and beating each other. We never talked about playing on the same team," Bobby Benson said.

Nothing inspires change more than failure. In what has become a refrain since the end of the men's 2013 lacrosse season, Johns Hopkins' 41-year streak of NCAA tournament appearances was snapped and a program that ranks second only to Syracuse with nine national championships could only watch Duke claim its second NCAA title in four years. The absence of a postseason convinced head coach Dave Pietramala and offensive coordinator Bobby Benson experiment with changes throughout the team.

When Dave Pietramala was introduced yesterday as the head coach of men's lacrosse at Johns Hopkins, those at the news conference kept speaking of a blur. They did so because less than two weeks ago, Hopkins intended to soldier on with their coach, John Haus, after a heartbreaking defeat to Syracuse in the national semifinals. The team - with locals such as Pat Miller and Bobby Benson - would choose its captains, and look to build on the two Final Fours it had achieved in the past two years.

When Johns Hopkins has the ball The Blue Jays have beaten opponents all year with tremendous scoring balance, and they will rely on numerous offensive threats in the face of a Syracuse defense that is inconsistent but talented, led by senior All-American defenseman Solomon Bliss. Six Hopkins players have scored at least 20 goals apiece, which is why the Blue Jays lead the nation in scoring offense (14.14) and extra-man offense (.473 on 35-for-74 shooting). Attackman Kyle Barrie, fully recovered from a thumb injury, brings a wicked shot with each hand from in close, while senior midfielder Adam Doneger pressures defenses from up top with a 15-yard shot as good as anyone's.

Whether the pressure was applied internally or externally, yesterday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal came down to the ability of the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team to deal with it. The Blue Jays felt the strain of being a No. 1 seed that was supposed to advance to the first final four being held in their hometown. They had to cope with a Towson team that likes to play at a faster pace. Hopkins handled both concerns remarkably well: It got goals from nine players and surged to a 14-6 romp over the Tigers in front of 4,416 at Towson University Stadium.

The ritual has been observed 184 times this college lacrosse season. Johns Hopkins scores a goal. Its band and fans recount the day's tally and ask for more. Fists are pumped on the sideline, but the celebration is muted at the core of the offense, where one of the tallest Blue Jays offers tips about what's coming next. Bobby Benson is the leading scorer on the most prolific Division I team in the nation. The gangly 6-foot-4 crease attackman has put up a career-high 33 goals, and the four-year starter out of McDonogh School will tell you that each was a gift from his teammates.

Johns Hopkins just wouldn't let Duke have the ball yesterday. The Blue Jays began playing keep-away at the start and held possession for the first 7:20 while getting the game's first 14 shots and four goals. Johns Hopkins pulled the same trick in the second quarter, holding the ball for 10 of the final 12 minutes and repeatedly breaking down the Blue Devils' defense. In perhaps its best all-around performance this season, top-ranked Hopkins took No. 10 Duke out of the game almost before it started and cruised to a 19-6 victory before 2,086 at Homewood Field.
