Navy's offense returns its top two scorers from last year in junior attackmen Tucker Hull (23 goals and 24 assists) and Sam Jones (18, 13). After them, only one other player (attackman Taylor Reynolds who has since graduated) finished with more than 20 points. That includes the midfield, a group that returns a pair of starters in junior Pat Durkin (13, 1) and senior Bryce Dabbs (9, 3). The midfielders will be counted on by coach Rick Sowell to be more effective in the upcoming campaign.

UPDATE -- Oct. 1 Jack McGlone wrote on his blog Monday that his brother Bill has been diagnosed with neurosarcoidosis , a rare condition causing inflammation in the brain, spinal cord and other areas of the nervous system. No exact cause is known for sarcoidosis, including the neurological variety that Bill McGlone has. Generally, doctors think neurosarcoidosis might have a genetic link, according to MedLine Plus , and they also suspect that bacterial or viral infections, or contact with certain types of chemicals or dust, could trigger it. In an update over the weekend, Jack said doctors at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia had "pretty much ruled out" cancer after a biopsy of a mass found on his brain during a CT scan.

One of the bright spots in Navy's season-opening 14-7 victory over VMI on Saturday was the play of the starting attack. Sophomores Sam Jones and Tucker Hull and senior Taylor Reynolds combined for 12 goals and six assists. Jones, an Annapolis native and Severna Park graduate who was named Monday the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, paced the offense with five goals and four assists, while Hull chipped in four goals and two assists. But while the attack took center stage, the starting midfield of senior Nikk Davis, junior Bryce Dabbs and sophomore Pat Durkin struggled.

For the past few years, McDaniel has relied on an attack-heavy offense that has been powered by standouts like Gibbs Preston, D.J. Rickels and J.S. Duke. But with Rickels, Duke and Ben Yanchseki graduating in May and taking a combined 76 goals and 37 assists with them from 2012, reloading on attack could be an arduous process as the team seeks quality candidates to join freshman Pat Bivons, who recorded eight goals and six assists in 12 starts That's why coach Matt Hatton is hoping that the returning first midfield of freshman Matt Dupras (12, 8)

Throughout fall workouts and the preseason, Navy coach Rick Sowell has openly voiced his opinion that the midfield needs to play better to alleviate some of the scoring burden on the attack. The attack got some help in Saturday's season-opening 20-7 thumping of VMI, but it was the second line that outperformed the starters. Junior Erik Hoffstadt registered three goals and one assist, and junior Sean Price and freshman Kevin Wendel each contributed a goal. That trio's play made an impression with Sowell.

Of the 11 different players who have started in UMBC's midfield, freshman Pat Young has the most starts with 11 and junior Conor Finch is second with six. Next on that list is senior Joe Lustgarten, who has made five starts after spending the last two seasons as a starting attackman. As the Retrievers prepare for Thursday's America East tournament semifinal against Hartford at Stony Brook, Lustgarten is slated to make his fifth consecutive start in the midfield. In the team's last four contests, he has scored four goals on nine shots and assisted on five others.

As a freshman, JoJo Marasco found a spot on the midfield, squeezing out nine goals and eight assists in 10 games. As a sophomore, he flourished as a starting attackman, registering 23 goals and 18 assists. This season, as a junior, Marasco has returned to the midfield, where he ranks second on No. 7 Syracuse in assists (five) and third in points (nine). It's a role that he is re-familiarizing himself with. “It's been an experience, and I'm embracing it,” said Marasco, an honorable-mention All American last year.

By now, many folks in the lacrosse community have already written off Stony Brook as a major player in the NCAA tournament after the Seawolves won the America East tournament crown despite a sub-.500 overall record (7-9). Plus, they must take on No. 2 seed Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore Sunday afternoon. That's not the approach Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala is taking, especially with Stony Brook's first midfield. Junior Jeff Tundo and seniors Robbie Campbell and Russ Bonnano rank 2-3-4 on that offense in points with 42, 38 and 32, respectively.

Six midfielders have started for Towson this spring, but the team seems to have found its first line of the future in junior Andrew Hodgson and sophomores Justin Mabus and Greg Cuccinello. That trio has started the last three games and has been fairly productive. In a 7-6 win against Hofstra on March 30, they combined for four goals on 12 shots and four assists. In a 9-5 victory over Massachusetts on April 6, they totaled two goals on 13 attempts and one assist. And in a 10-8 loss to No. 10 Penn State last Saturday, they combined for six goals on 18 shots and two assists.

Four days after losing a late lead against the Ohio Machine and falling into last place in Major League Lacrosse, the Chesapeake Bayhawks made a move geared toward the future. In the lone deal Tuesday before the trade deadline, the Bayhawks (3-7) acquired midfielder Kevin Crowley and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLL college draft from the Florida Launch in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes. Crowley was an All-Star this season, but his numbers are down from a year ago, when the British Columbia native was chosen as Player of the Year after finishing with 38 goals (three 2-pointers)

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.

One of Towson's positions of strength in 2015 should be a midfield that welcomes back three starters in juniors Greg Cuccinello (20 goals and nine assists) and Justin Mabus (10 G, 17 A) and freshman Ryan Drenner (12 G, 10A). That group could be even stronger if Andrew Hodgson returns from injury, and coach Shawn Nadelen said Hodgson, a senior who has one more year of eligibility remaining, is on pace to do just that. “He should be back next year, and that just bolsters our midfield when we return all those guys and get Andrew back in the mix,” Nadelen said.

Mount St. Mary's has averaged 11 goals in four contests this season, but a closer look reveals that the offensive production is quite lopsided. The starting attack of seniors Andrew Scalley, Brett Schmidt and Cody Lehrer has combined for 30 goals and 26 assists. The total of 56 points accounts for 73.7 percent of the team's output so far. By comparison, the starting midfield of seniors Bryant Schmidt, Daniel Stranix and Eric Osoki has combined for 11 goals and four assists. It's a jarring discrepancy between the two units, but coach Tom Gravante said he is not alarmed by the imbalance in points.

Turnover in the midfield is bad, and Loyola Maryland is finding that out this offseason. The Greyhounds, an aggressive team that has thrived when its short-stick defensive midfielders can run and turn defense into offense, are losing two starting short-stick defensive midfielders to graduation. Pat Laconi led all non-long-pole players in caused turnovers with 34, scooped up 31 ground balls and recorded 11 goals and three assists.
