Along with junior goalkeeper Mike Fisher, senior defenseman David Henry is the veteran voice on a Holy Cross defense looking to improve on the 11.1 goals per game the unit surrendered last year. Henry, a Davidsonville native and Severn graduate, has made 26 starts in the team's last 30 contests and was named a captain in the offseason. Because of the Crusaders' expected youth on defense, Holy Cross coach Jim Morrissey said Henry must avoid last season's habit of collecting fouls.

Morgan State's 0-2 start has been punctuated by similar three-point losses to Eastern Michigan and Holy Cross. Another similarity involves the defense's inability to preserve leads. The Bears had a 28-21 advantage with 5:30 left in the third quarter before Eastern Michigan scored the final 10 points. They held a 26-23 lead with 3:39 left in the fourth period until Holy Cross punched in the game-winning touchdown on the final play. But coach Lee Hull said the defense's play has not sounded any alarms yet. “It's a new system, and our guys are still learning,” Hull said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Game-winning goals in the final minutes highlighted the two previous Navy women's lacrosse wins over Holy Cross. This time, it was all about defense. If you were 15 minutes late to Navy's 10-4 victory Saturday, you missed most of the offensive action, including Danielle Vivonetto's game-winning goal, but you showed up just in time for the defensive show at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Midshipmen shut out the Crusaders for the final 42:02 as the defense had a school-record 17 caused turnovers and won 21 of 28 ground balls.

Several opponents have slowed Navy's high-powered offense recently by holding the ball for long possessions, but the Midshipmen made sure Holy Cross could not do that in Sunday's Patriot League women's lacrosse championship. The No. 12 Midshipmen jumped ahead early and kept rolling to an eight-goal halftime lead en route to a 14-4 victory for their fourth straight Patriot League tournament title at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The win ended a string of three-straight one-goal wins, including two in double overtime.

When Navy won the opening faceoff of Saturday's eventual 21-12 thrashing of Patriot League foe Holy Cross, the offense was composed of the usual starters on attack - and the players who make up the second midfield. Seniors Austin Heneveld and Sean Price and sophomore Kevin Wendel took the field with the starting attack of seniors Sam Jones and Tucker Hull and sophomore T.J. Hanzsche. But before any conspiracy theories begin hatching, coach Rick Sowell said the second line took the first possession because Heneveld was already on the field as a wing player on the faceoff unit.

The manner in which No. 13 Loyola pounded No. 18 Towson, 20-4, on Wednesday seemed to catch even Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey by surprise. Loyola was fast, opportunistic and overwhelming in almost every aspect of the victory, which was the program's most convincing win since 2007. But Toomey said the next challenge for the Greyhounds (2-1) is turning around and trying to get ready for Holy Cross in a Patriot League opener for both teams on Saturday. The quick turnaround is a difficult task, but nearly as important is avoiding the emotional and physical letdown that can follow a seemingly easy outcome.
