Denver coach Bill Tierney jokes that it took only four years for college coaches, including himself, to put Eric Law in the best position to succeed. Law has gone from being a backup at Salisbury as a freshman to - after transferring to the Pioneers - a sophomore midfielder to a junior wing attackman to the quarterback of the offense in 2013. And Law has thrived in his latest role, setting both team and personal bests in assists (31) and points (64). “So finally, after three years of playing - one at Division III, one at midfield and one at not his most comfortable position - in his fourth year of college, he gets to do what he does best, and you've seen the results,” Tierney said with a chuckle.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun publishes a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Loyola junior defenseman Reid Acton, who ended Denver senior attackman Mark Matthews' streak of 39 straight games with a goal in the Greyhounds' 12-9 victory Saturday night. How would you assess your play against Matthews? Mark's a really good player. I actually grew up playing with Mark and covering him. [Both Acton and Matthews are Ontario natives.]

While junior Joe Fletcher has emerged as Loyola's shutdown defenseman and seniors Scott Ratliff and Josh Hawkins have headlined one of the more prolific Rope units in Division I, Reid Acton has stood in the background. But that's not how coach Charley Toomey feels about the senior defenseman. Acton, a three-year starter, is a security blanket for the No. 5 Greyhounds (11-3), who will meet No. 8 Ohio State (10-3) in a semifinal of the Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament at Hobart on Thursday night.

Mark Matthews is mostly blind and hard of hearing, but the 103-year-old former Buffalo Soldier will not let anyone take his picture until he is certain his cavalry hat is on straight. He sits at attention, his chin jutting out, as a friend snaps away.Matthews, who served on the Mexican border in 1912 and in the Pacific during World War II, is to be inducted tonight into Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 160 on Dorsey Road in Glen Burnie. He is the last survivor of the regiments of black soldiers who patrolled the Old West.

The box score from No. 2 Loyola's 12-9 victory over No. 10 Denver Saturday night shows that nine different Greyhounds scored goals, including three from junior attackman Mike Sawyer and two from senior attackman Eric Lusby. There are no numbers next to Reid Acton's name, but what's more important is the lack of numbers associated with Pioneers senior attackman Mark Matthews. The junior defenseman snapped Matthews' streak of 39 consecutive games with a goal - which had been the second longest active streak in Division I. Matthews misfired on 10 shots and finished with just one assist and three turnovers, and Loyola coach Charley Toomey took great pains to single out Acton.
