At the end of last season, it appeared that then-junior Brian McCullough, who made of 11 of 13 starts, was poised to be UMBC's featured goalkeeper. But someone forgot to tell junior Adam Cohen, who impressed the coaches enough in fall workouts to overtake McCullough as the starter. And Cohen has validated their faith in him by registering career bests in both goals-against average (8.50) and save percentage (.585) in two games this year. “It was a good feeling,” the Arnold native and Severn graduate said Tuesday afternoon.

At 5 feet 8, 170 pounds, Notre Dame's Matt Kavanagh was one of the smallest players on the field Saturday in his team's semifinal matchup with No. 7 seed Maryland, which has the nation's top-ranked scoring defense. But the sophomore attackman's stats from the game showed just how big he can be. Kavanagh had a game-high five goals as well as two assists to drive the sixth-seeded Fighting Irish into the Memorial Day championship game against No. 1 Duke with an 11-6 win against the Terps . Heading into the game, Kavanagh had the most points by a Notre Dame player since 2001 and was the only player in program history to record 30 goals and 30 assists in a season.

Considering there is a goal scored maybe once in every six or seven soccer games, there is nothing more embarrassing than an awful blunder from a goalkeeper. The latest goalie goof to go viral is from Sammy Bossut, who plays for Zulte-Waregem of the Belgian Pro League, and it's a good one. After grabbing a corner kick out of the air, Bossut tried to toss the ball downfield, but somehow managed to throw it backwards and right to an opponent, who casually deposited it in the goal.

For three years, Army could take some solace in knowing that the defense was anchored by goalkeeper Tom Palesky, who was instrumental in the team's upset of Syracuse in the first round of the NCAAtournament in 2010. With Palesky's graduation, the Black Knights are hoping that senior Zach Palmieri can fill the void. Coach Joe Alberici said Palmieri deserves the chance to begin the season as the starter. “He's waited his time, three years behind Tom Palesky and served as a very valuable backup,” Alberici said Wednesday.

No. 17 Loyola appeared to have found a successor to goalkeeper Jake Hagelin in junior Michael Bonitatibus, who started the team's first three contests. But since taking over after halftime of Saturday's 11-8 victory over Bellarmine, sophomore Jack Runkel has played the last six quarters in the cage. Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey said he isn't sure which goalie will start when No. 8 Duke visits Ridley Athletic Complex Saturday. “It's a situation where we're just asking them to compete on a daily basis,” Toomey said Thursday afternoon.

William Lane and John Martin shared Hood's goaltending duties last year with Lane starting in nine games and Martin starting the other seven. The anticipated competition to start in 2012 between the pair of juniors never materialized, however, as Martin, who registered a 10.01 goals-against average and a .581 save percentage, was ruled academically ineligible for the season. That opens the door for Lane to open the season as the undisputed starter - although that doesn't necessarily fit with coach Jeremy Mattoon's preference.

There's a long list of goalies who have played for the Maryland men's lacrosse team without winning the sport's ultimate prize. Niko Amato doesn't want that list to grow this weekend. Amato is only the second starting goalkeeper in program history to guide his team to three Final Fours in four years. But Jake Reed is the only one to have been on national championship teams (1973 and 1975), and if Amato and the Terps don't end the school's title drought, Amato will join a group that includes Brian Dougherty, Kevin O'Leary and Brian Phipps.

Denver goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus are polar opposites. LaPlante is a native of Fort Collins, Colo. He's a junior communications major known for his happy-go-lucky personality, and he's left-handed. Faus, a senior, is from Lakeville, Conn. He majors in history, which reflects his more serious demeanor, and he's right-handed. Though so much divides them off the field, come game time none of it matters. They're equals. LaPlante starts each game and plays the entire first half.

Fifth-seeded Denver has made no secret about its season-long philosophy of rotating goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus. Top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke may adopt a similar approach in Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against the Pioneers at M&T Bank Stadium. Sophomore Luke Aaron (9.82 goals-against average; .518 save percentage) is slated to make his 17th start of the season, but he looked shaky in the second half of Sunday's 19-11 rout of Johns Hopkins and was pulled in the third quarter in favor of junior Kyle Turri (8.63 goals-against average; .453 save percentage)

As soon as goalie Gunnar Waldt made the last save in the final seconds to preserve Bryant's 10-9 upset against Syracuse on Sunday night, his life changed. He got rock star status. "My cell phone and those of my family were blowing up," said Waldt, a sophomore out of St. Paul's. "I kept hearing about how I was on the news and sportscasts back home. And then I started to hear about awards, but all I'm trying to do is stay levelheaded and focused. " That will be easy for Waldt.

I have never understood why there aren't more big goalies in college lacrosse. No, I'm not talking about the blobs that eat up space and can block out the sun because they consume multiple cheeseburgers. I'm referring to more of a finesse game where the goalie has size and decent quickness, but more importantly fast hands and good positioning. Loyola Maryland's Jack Runkel comes to mind. "As far as shot selection, they will hesitate," the 6-foot-3, 245-pound Runkel said about the influence of big goalies on shooters.
