Scott Jones finished with two goals in No. 2 seed UMBC's 19-8 loss to No. 3 seed Albany in Wednesday night's America East tournament final, but his impact was barely felt at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville. Jones, who entered the contest leading the Retrievers in both goals (34) and points (38), scored the game's first goal just 27 seconds into the first quarter. But he didn't score his second one until 12:30 remained in the fourth quarter. The Great Danes shadowed Jones with a short-stick defensive midfielder, essentially daring him to dodge - which is not his strength.

Johns Hopkins' first midfield got its first goals of the season, but pardon juniors John Ranagan and John Greeley and sophomore Rob Guida if they decline to celebrate. Ranagan and Guida each scored in the No. 2 Blue Jays' 8-6 win against No. 18 Delaware at Homewood Field in Baltimore on Tuesday evening, but the first line continues to struggle with its shooting. Ranagan went 1-for-6, Guida - who added an assist - was 1-for-4, and Greeley went 0-for-3. For the season, Ranagan is 1-for-14, Guida is 1-for-8, and Greeley is 0-for-7.
