After opening the season with four consecutive losses, Goucher has bounced back to .500 with a 5-5 overall record and a 3-1 mark in the Landmark Conference. Even though the Gophers -- who have won the last five regular-season league championships -- are in sole possession of second place in the conference, coach Brian Kelly said the team can't afford to be content about its standing in the race. “It's a pretty balanced conference and if we don't perform in our last two games against Catholic and Scranton, there's a chance we don't make the playoffs,” he said on Monday morning.

Goucher's season could have ended literally and metaphorically on April 14 when sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel died of injuries he suffered during a hit-and-run the day before. But once he had the backing of the Gabriel family, coach Brian Kelly knew the campaign would go on. What he was uncertain of was whether the same could be said about the team. “Immediately following with the Catholic game [on April 17], we were purely playing off of emotion and energy,” he recalled.

When Goucher opened the season with a 13-9 victory over Birmingham-Southern, the initial thought was that the team that had captured two of the last three Landmark Conference tournaments might be able to extend that success under Kyle Hannan - who left for Division I Mercer - into 2013. The Gophers then dropped their next six contests before turning the tide with a 5-1 record over their last six games, and they are now tied with Scranton for first place in the conference with identical 4-0 marks.

In the span of four days, Goucher went from absorbing the disappointment of losing to Landmark Conference rival Scranton to having the last word. After an 8-7 setback to the Royals on Saturday that prevented the Gophers from capturing the regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament, they returned the favor by knocking off Scranton, 8-4, in a tournament semifinal Wednesday night. The biggest difference, according to Goucher coach Brian Kelly, was the team's improved effort on defense.

Goucher's five-year reign as the Landmark Conference regular-season men's lacrosse champion came to an end when the Gophers fell to visiting Scranton, 8-7, at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Saturday. The loss was doubly damaging for Goucher (6-7 overall, 4-2 Landmark), which went from potentially being the top seed in the conference tournament to finishing as the No. 3 seed. Susquehanna (9-7, 5-1) — which claimed last year's tournament crown and edged Catholic, 7-6, in overtime Saturday — captured the regular-season title for the first time in school history and will have home-field advantage in the tourney.

Courtesy of a 15-1 overall record and a 6-0 Landmark Conference mark, Goucher will open the league tournament on Wednesday as the top seed. It's the fourth consecutive year that the Gophers - ranked 10th in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - are the No. 1 seed in the tourney. But that hasn't necessarily translated into success as the program has emerged as the tournament champion just once. Winning the regular-season crown is an achievement, but coach Kyle Hannan agreed that the ultimate objective is capturing the tournament and securing the conference's automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament.

In a nip-and-tuck game that wasn't decided until the final seconds, Goucher dropped a frustrating 8-7 decision to Landmark Conference rival Scranton on Saturday at Gopher Stadium in Towson. The reward for both teams is that they will meet in three days in a league tournament semifinal on Wednesday. The difference is that the Gophers (6-7 overall and 4-2 in the conference) will be the away team as they take to the road against the Royals (10-6, 5-1). Goucher went from potentially capturing its sixth consecutive regular-season title and the top seed to the No. 3 seed, but coach Brian Kelly pointed out that the team still has a chance to extend its season.

Despite - or perhaps because of - the death of sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel on Monday morning, Goucher will play host to Landmark Conference rival Catholic at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Thursday. Coach Brian Kelly said the Gabriel family has encouraged the team to play the game as originally scheduled. "They're so strong in their faith that they believe there's a plan for Matthew and that he is with God now,” Kelly said on Tuesday night. “Their words to me directly were, 'Matthew would have wanted you to continue to play the game that he loved, and he would want his teammates to continue to play the game that he loved and to continue to do what you do, and that's life, to live life because he lived his life to the fullest.' He's always been a selfless human being, and he will be terribly missed physically.

Graduation depleted Goucher of four starters - three on offense - and the program eventually bid farewell to the most successful coach in its history, but that did not prevent the team from extending its success in the Landmark Conference. Saturday's 7-6 overtime decision over Scranton cemented for the Gophers (7-7 overall and 5-0 in the league) the top seed and home-field advantage in the upcoming conference tournament with just one more league game against the Merchant Marine this Saturday.

Goucher owns a slight 5-4 edge in its series against Landmark Conference rival Scranton and has won the last two meetings. The Gophers have won four consecutive games at home after dropping their first two, while the Royals are 4-3 on the road but have lost two of their last three away from Fitzpatrick Field in Scranton, Pa. Scranton (9-6 overall and 4-1 in the league) have lost two of their last three contests. The defense has been anchored by sophomore goalkeeper Nicholas McKaba, who ranks 16th in Division III with a 6.58 goals-against average and has recorded a .569 save percentage.

When Goucher and Scranton play on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Gopher Stadium in Towson, the winner will capture the Landmark Conference regular-season title and earn the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the league tournament. The Gophers (6-6) and Royals (9-6) are 4-1 in the conference, but only one will sit atop the league. Coach Brian Kelly said it's nice to know that neither team has to worry about tiebreakers or potential seeds. “We've got a lot to play for,” he said Thursday.

Goucher, which wrapped up the top seed and home-field advantage in the upcoming Landmark Conference tournament, will conclude the regular season with Saturday's home contest against the Merchant Marine. The Mariners will visit Gopher Stadium again on Wednesday as Goucher's semifinal opponent in the conference tournament. Gophers coach Brian Kelly compared Saturday's game to a “dress rehearsal” for the tournament. “It's obviously a dress rehearsal for a game that will have a lot of significance for Wednesday,” he said Tuesday.

Goucher spotted host Scranton the first 10 points, and the Royals earned a 72-60 Landmark Conference victory over the Gophers last night. Goucher came up empty on its first nine possessions, finally scoring on a basket by Amir Hakim 5:47 into the game. The Royals (9-6, 1-3) had a 35-20 lead at halftime. Freshman forward Marcus Cotton had a team-high 17 points for Goucher (4-10, 2-2) . Women Siena 67, Loyola 57 -- Vika Sholokhova led three Loyola players in double figures with 17 points and matched her career high with 13 rebounds, but it was not enough for the Greyhounds (8-8, 3-3 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference)

When asked to reminisce about Goucher's 6-5 loss to the Merchant Marine Academy in the semifinals of the Landmark Conference tournament on May 1 - an outcome that prevented the top-seeded Gophers from capturing their third tournament crown in four years - coach Brian Kelly quipped, “Do we have to?” It's encouraging to see that Kelly's sense of humor hasn't been affected by that setback, but the second-year coach said the loss resonated throughout the program at the time. “We were 6-0 in our conference and felt pretty good about where we were heading into the tournament,” he said.
