Maryland junior Jason Carter made a career-best nine saves.

It became a common sight on the Byrd Stadium sidelines this spring. Maryland men's lacrosse long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt would stand next to volunteer assistant coach Brian Farrell during pregame warm-ups and at halftime, seeking brief feedback, instruction or maybe even a quick laugh. "Brian was someone I could talk to about what was going on," said Bernhardt, who graduated in May. "He really helped me out just by recognizing the game and giving me little tips. He's a guy I could look to in any situation.

It's not a stretch to say that the evolving state of the defense will be a prominent storyline for Maryland in 2012. That's what happens when a unit graduates all three starting close defensemen (Brett Schmidt, Max Schmidt, Ryder Bohlander), a starting long-stick midfielder (Brian Farrell) and one of two starting short-stick defensive midfielders (Dan Burns). But the cupboard isn't bare. Junior Jesse Bernhardt, who recorded two goals, two assists, 44 groundballs and 16 caused turnovers while backing up Farrell at long-stick midfielder, is a candidate to shift to close defense, and coach John Tillman has been impressed with what he has seen from players like sophomores Michael Ehrhardt, Emmett Cahill and Taylor Morgan and freshman Goran Murray.

The emotional impact of a 10-8 loss to Colgate in the regular-season home finale continues to resonate with the Maryland men's lacrosse team, but not necessarily in a negative manner. Seniors Dan Burns and Max Schmidt both agree that the setback — which cost the Terps a top-eight seed and a first-round home contest in the NCAA tournament — reinvigorated the team's defense. "I feel like that was a wake-up call for our defense as a tune-up for the tournament," Burns, a short-stick defensive midfielder, said Wednesday.

COLLEGE PARK -- The rain and wind that pelted the Towson men's lacrosse team wasn't nearly as damaging to the Tigers as Maryland was. The No. 5 Terps scored the only three goals of the fourth quarter to pull away from No. 15 Towson, 12-7, before an announced 1,671 at Ludwig Field here yesterday. Leading 9-7 in the final period, Maryland got goals from freshman attackman Grant Catalino, sophomore defenseman Brian Farrell (Boys' Latin) and junior midfielder Dan Groot in a span of 1:26 to secure its seventh consecutive win against the Tigers and 25th of 30 all-time meetings.

Cooper MacDonnell wanted to score 30 goals this season. He might need a new objective after this weekend. With three games left on Loyola's schedule, the junior attackman has scored 27 goals, tops in the Eastern College Athletic Conference. In the No. 19 Greyhounds' 8-7 win against Georgetown on Saturday, he posted a career-high six points, which included a career-best-tying five goals. "I just have a lot of confidence dodging from the left wing," said MacDonnell, who was named the ECAC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks.

COLLEGE PARK -- The fifth-ranked Maryland men's lacrosse team has battled inexperience and injuries while winning early this season against some overmatched competition. Yesterday against No. 4 Georgetown, the Terrapins staggered early, fought back late, and ultimately had to settle for their first loss ever to the Hoyas. After Maryland had erased a five-goal halftime deficit with inspired defense, great transition play and a fine performance by junior attackman Max Ritz, Georgetown got the last word.

The national championship game was over, and it had been over for more than 30 minutes Monday, but Maryland senior long-stick midfielder Brian Farrell had not yet found the strength to remove his jersey, or his shoulder pads, for the final time. Deep inside M&T Bank Stadium, he sat in front of his locker with his elbows pressed to his knees and rubbed his hands together. His eyes never left the carpet. Some of Farrell's teammates were milling about, slowly removing their socks and gloves as they wiped away tears and tried absorb the disappointment of Maryland's 9-7 loss to Virginia, but Farrell wasn't ready to move.

There's a Facebook poll asking fans of the Maryland men's lacrosse team to pick their favorite goal by fifth-year senior long-stick midfielder Brian Farrell: a one-hander against Johns Hopkins in 2008 or a diving tally against Navy a week ago. Farrell, who was unaware of the poll, said he would vote for his goal against Navy because his score against the Blue Jays in 2008 was part of a 10-4 loss. "Everyone remembers that one-handed goal, but no one remembers that we got blown out in that game," Farrell said.

A long-stick midfielder is not considered an offensive midfielder. And he's not grouped with a close defenseman. Navy coach Richie Meade prefers a different designation: athlete. "He's got to be an athlete," said Meade, whose team is well acquainted with all four long-stick midfielders at Saturday's Smartlink Day of Rivals event at M&T Bank Stadium. "If he's not an athlete, then you're giving up the middle of the field, which I don't think you can afford to do with the way the game is played right now."

Chris Boland made his first appearance in a Johns Hopkins game this year, and it didn't take him long to make an impact. The senior attackman, who had been suspended for the team's first three games for violating an undisclosed team rule, entered Saturday's game against Princeton after a Blue Jays timeout with 9:58 left in the first quarter. He promptly scored back-to-back goals in a span of 3 minutes, 43 seconds. Boland did not register another point in No. 5 Johns Hopkins' eventual 11-10 overtime loss to the No. 8 Tigers at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium, but returning to the field was joyous enough.

As attackmen for the Maryland men's lacrosse team, Will Yeatman and Grant Catalino are often targeted by opposing defensemen. And they make huge targets - Yeatman, a junior, is 6 feet 6 and 260 pounds, and Catalino, a sophomore, is 6-5 and 240 pounds - and they've got the scars and bruises to prove it. A cut on Yeatman's right shoulder blade is almost scabbed over, and angry red welts along his right triceps and elbow are healing. Catalino said he has similar bumps and bruises on his upper body and legs.
