When reigning Division III national champion Stevenson faces Commonwealth Conference rival Widener at Mustang Stadium on Wednesday, neither team will have to go out of their way to get familiar. The Mustangs swept the Pride in two games last season, but Stevenson needed a goal from then-junior attackman Chris Dashiell with nine seconds remaining in regulation to emerge with a 9-8 victory over Widener in last year's league tournament final May 4. Mustangs coach Paul Cantabene said the memory of that tight matchup has not totally dissipated.

The starting attack for reigning national champion Stevenson has had somewhat of a quiet start, and that has been especially true for Edward McLoughlin. In three starts for the No. 3 Mustangs (2-1), the freshman has failed to score a goal despite taking nine shots and has recorded just one assist. And he has more turnovers (four) than ground balls (three). But coach Paul Cantabene expressed his confidence in McLoughlin. “Eddie's a freshman, and he's getting better and better,” Cantabene said recently.

Stevenson's mission to become only the fifth program to bring home back-to-back NCAA Division III titles came to an abrupt end with a 12-11 loss to Washington College in the tournament quarterfinals. The setback reminded coach Paul Cantabene of the difficulty of staying ahead of the pack and reaffirmed his respect for Hobart, Salisbury, Middlebury and Nazareth for their ability to string together at least a pair of national championships. “Hobart won 12 in a row [from 1980 to 1991]

When the NCAA tournament was unveiled late Sunday night, Dickinson - one of just two teams left in Division III with undefeated records - was the only team in the South region with a first-round bye. Roanoke got the next seed, and Stevenson was third, falling in line with the most recent regional rankings . It was what Mustangs coach Paul Cantebene anticipated. “It's a fair bracket,” he said Monday morning. “We're going to see good teams no matter what. So from what we did this season, we're in a very fair place.” Stevenson (17-2)

Stevenson's game on Saturday against Rochester Institute of Technology at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse is being billed by many as a rematch of last year's NCAA title game that the Mustangs won, 16-14, for the university's first Division III national championship. That's not how Stevenson coach Paul Cantabene sees it. “We know it's a big game, and we know they're going to be pumped up because it's their first game of the year,” he said of the Tigers Thursday morning. “For us, it's obviously a big game, but it's another regular-season game.

Saturday's showdown between No. 2 Stevenson and No. 3 Salisbury is a prime opportunity for both sides. For the Mustangs (13-1), a win would extend their winning streak to 13 games and reaffirm their status as the reigning Division III national champion. For the Sea Gulls (15-1), a victory would serve as a vivid reminder that the program that has captured 10 NCAA championships is getting closer to adding No. 11 to the trophy case. For both teams, a victory would likely mean the top seed in the South Region of the NCAA tournament.

Washington College and 2013 national champion Stevenson checked, bruised, and battered each other in a thrilling 60-minute NCAA tournament quarterfinal on Wednesday night at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills decided by a Jim Cusick goal with 22.5 seconds left to lift the visiting Shoremen to a 12-11 decision. There were some verbal whacks after the game, too.

As a benefit of going 7-1 in the Capital Athletic Conference and clinching the No. 2 seed in the league tournament, Stevenson hasn't played since thrashing Frostburg State, 17-4, last Wednesday. The layoff has been good for the Mustangs, who have had several players dealing with nagging injuries and ailments. “When you've played so many weeks of Wednesday-Saturday [games], it kind of wears and tears on the body a little bit,” coach Paul Cantabene said Tuesday morning. “So I think it's been good to get the guys a little time off and get them a little more rested because it is a long season.

Stevenson's 6-4 win against Western New England Saturday catapulted Paul Cantabene into a rarefied level as he became the second-fastest coach to collect his 100th career victory. “It's a great accomplishment not only for me, but also for the players who have played at Stevenson and Villa Julie,” said Cantabene, who is 100-30 in eight seasons with the Mustangs. “When I first got here, I would've thought that it was going to take me 20 years to get to 100 wins. But those teams have done a really good job and we've had some really good kids come through the program.

Offense has been Stevenson's calling card, and the reigning national champion has maintained that reputation by ranking ninth in Division III after averaging 14.7 goals. But the Mustangs (19-2) went on the defensive in their 15-9 thumping of Cabrini in an NCAA tournament second-round game Saturday night. The defense held a Cavaliers offense that led the nation with 19.7 goals per game to more than 10 goals below its season average and its worst shooting percentage (20.0 percent) of the season.

A Stevenson defense that has surrendered just 5.8 goals per game in its last nine contests has been led by the play of senior defenseman Kyle Holechek. The Loyola High graduate has recorded 43 ground balls and 27 caused turnovers over that same span. He leads the reigning national champion Mustangs (18-2) in caused turnovers with 43 and ranks second among teammates who are not faceoff specialists in ground balls with 64. “I think he's gotten better as the year has gone on,” coach Paul Cantabene said Friday morning.

Salisbury's 11-9 win over Stevenson on Saturday offered a little clarity into its postseason picture. If the No. 3 Sea Gulls (16-1) can close out the regular season with no losses and a Capital Athletic Conference tournament championship, they likely will be the top seed in the South Region of the Division III tournament. “Stevenson-Salisbury is always a big game to win,” senior attackman Luke Phipps (John Carroll) said. “We lost two [meetings] last year, so that was disappointing.

It's been almost a year since Stevenson won the Division III national championship in men's lacrosse, and coach Paul Cantabene still hasn't taken a vacation. Besides being the head coach, Cantabene is also associate athletic director and chairman of the Hall of Fame, recruiting and scheduling committees. But nothing drives him more than lacrosse. "I'm still working on that vacation," said Cantabene, laughing. "The offseason has been similar, but at the same time tougher. There are more obligations, and recruiting is harder.
