Jurgelevich, Tuttle, Wing Named USM Lax Captains

Huskies Open 2015 Season Sunday Against Maine Maritime

GORHAM, Maine -- University of Southern Maine men’s lacrosse head coach Sam Lane recently announced that senior defender Spencer Tuttle (Kennebunk, Maine/Cheverus), junior middie Ryan Jurgelevich (Portland, Maine) and sophomore attackman Seth Wing (West Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner Area) have been named captains for the upcoming 2015 season.

The Huskies are slated to open the 2015 season this Sunday (March 1) hosting Maine Maritime Academy at Memorial Field in Portland. The game was moved to Memorial Field because Hannaford Field, the Huskies’ home field on USM’s Gorham campus, is not yet ready for play. Game time of Sunday’s match is 1:00 p.m.

The 2015 season will be Tuttle’s fourth campaign with the Huskies. Jurgelevich, the Huskies’ standout goalie last spring, is moving out to a field position this season. Wing was the team’s second leading scorer last season as a rookie. This is the year for each to serve in a captain’s capacity.

Tuttle started all 15 games last season contributing one goal and scooping up 35 ground balls. At the other end of the field, Wing scored 17 goals and dished off seven assists for 24 points in 15 games. Jurgelevich compiled an 11.62 goals against average and made 224 saves playing 893 of a possible 904 minutes.

The Huskies return 14 players from last year’s side that finished 2-13 overall. Lane has added 14 newcomers, including eight first-year players, to the 28-man roster. USM also returns its top six scorers from a year ago.

In the recently release Little East Conference coaches’ preseason poll, Southern Maine was picked to finish seventh among the eight teams. Keene State College is the preseason favorite garnering seven first-place votes and 49 points. Eastern Connecticut followed with the remaining first-place vote and 40 points. The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Western Connecticut State University round out the top half of the table with 36 points and 32 points respectively.

The Huskies are scheduled to play 10 home games this season. The seven-game Little East Conference schedule begins March 28 with a trip to Eastern Connecticut.

Men's Lax Preview: Bobcats focused on a turnaround in 2015

LEWISTON, Maine -- The 2014 season was certainly a vexing one for the Bates men's lacrosse team. As a relatively young team coming off its highest total of victories in seven years, Bates expected more than four wins in 13 games.

Six of their nine losses came by a margin of three goals or fewer, a fact not lost on any of the Bobcats. One of the most organized and no-nonsense teams in 14th-year head coach Peter Lasagna's tenure seems to have arrived at the collective conclusion that greater attention to detail could make the difference in turning a lot of 9-7 losses into 9-7 wins.

"You'll find that a team's results in one- or two-goal games make all the difference in this league, because it's that competitive and close," said Lasagna, speaking of the New England Small College Athletic Conference. "I think particularly early, if you win one of those close games early, that can lead you to win the next two."

Bates opens the season at Garcelon Field on Saturday at 1pm, against Amherst, one of the NESCAC's two nationally ranked teams in Division III at No. 13.

Ever since the 2014 season concluded, beginning with well-attended skills practice sessions held in Short Term, the 2015 squad has been actively preparing for this season, with the rising seniors doing an exemplary job of communicating voluntary activities to the rest of the team. Lasagna's faith in the leadership of the Class of 2015 and the character of the younger classes led him to plan this year's winter break not with the usual trip to a place like Maryland, but to remain in Lewiston. The result was a week of high-quality practices, interjected with team activities like helping out for an afternoon at Good Shepherd Food Bank, visiting Museum L/A and going to a screening of the film Selma. At the end of the week, Bates hosted both Western New England and Bowdoin, outscoring both teams but, more importantly, playing well together and demonstrating an impressive level of fitness.

"Bottom line, why I believe this will be a really exciting season is that so much of what determines how you do in your is your leadership, and this is an exceptional senior group, unified and really talented," Lasagna said. "I think that the classes underneath them really respect those guys, and see how invested it is. When the seniors are that invested, that makes it a lot more likely that everybody else will be."

Bates has a bevy of sophomores and juniors who have developed noticeably from a year ago, and Lasagna can hardly wait to see what they'll do. "Last season, young guys played a really important role for us, and now they're all experienced players. Often the biggest jump a player makes is between freshman and sophomore year. You can just see when you look at the guys, they look a lot more like savvy, experienced, confident college lacrosse players."

These Bobcats are not only organized and disciplined -- they're athletic, too. Lasagna believes they're better equipped than ever to push a fast pace throughout games. Defensive midfielders junior Matt Proto (Chatham, N.J.) and senior Steven Hild (West Hartford, Conn.) are two of the best around at pushing the ball from the defensive area into the attack area and completing clears.

Lasagna also likes the team's mix of veterans and youth, and in the scoring department, the Bobcats' top eight point-scorers from 2014 all return. Bates' attack will be one of the more experienced units, led by two-year senior captain Jack Strain (Montclair, N.J.), who scored 21 goals with five assists in 2014, junior Charlie Hildebrand (Berwyn, Pa.), who had seven goals and 14 assists, and the Bobcats' most voluminous scorer of the past 15 years, junior Jack Allard (Ridgewood, N.J.). Allard tallied 34 goals and 15 assists in 2014, the most goals and points by a Bobcat since 2000.

Attacking midfielders are another group to watch. Sophomore Kyle Weber (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) returns as Bates' leading scoring middie, with 12 goals last year. Senior captain Conor Henrie (Lexington, Mass.; 9 goals), senior Evan Chen (Katonah, N.Y.; 10 goals), sophomore Charlie Fay (Falmouth, Maine; 9 goals), senior Reid Lewallen (Portland, Ore.), senior Matt McReddie (Rye, N.Y.), senior Tucker White (Burlington, Vt.) and senior Jack Allen (Westfield, N.J.) help fill out this potent unit.

Junior Ken O'Friel (Scarsdale, N.Y.) and senior Connor Cerniglia (Annapolis, Md.) create an outstanding tandem of defensive midfielders. Both are very athletic (Lasagna said Cerniglia may be the Bobcats' fittest player); the smaller Cerniglia brings scrappiness and a right-handed shot, while O'Friel is bigger and stronger with a left-handed release.

Bates may have the makings of a foundational defense, especially when junior captain David Cappellini (Manhasset, N.Y.) returns from the injury that is expected to keep him out of action for the first month. Fellow junior captain Colby Spehler (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.) makes a terrific tandem with Cappellini, while sophomore Fred Ulbrick (Fairfield, Conn.) anchors the unit with stability at close defense. Other key contributors on defense include potential Saturday starters in sophomore Charlie Gravina (Fair Haven, N.J.), who Lasagna says had an exceptional preseason, and junior Stefano Stadlinger (Summit, N.J.).

Lasagna also feels that goalkeeping will be another area of strength for the Bobcats. The starter against Amherst will be Joe Faria (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.), who "split time last year and returns as a very motivated junior," said Lasagna. Faria has been Bates' most consistent in goal during preseason, but senior Alex Sternberg (Needham, Mass.) and first-year Jared Baumann (Portland, Ore.) are making it a good battle. Baumann was a high school All-American, while Sternberg joins the team as a senior -- he tried out for the team as a freshman and did not make it, but friends convinced him to give it another go this year, and Sternberg has played impressively.

Bates will have new faces handling faceoffs this year. The leading candidate to take the bulk of them is sophomore Sam Francis (Newburyport, Mass.), a linebacker on the football team who is described by Lasagna as "one of the fiercest competitors I've been around." Lasagna also likes what he's seen of players like White, O'Friel and Ulbrick at the faceoff X.

"We've all been eagerly anticipating the start of the season," said Lasagna. "Ten months is a long time to wait."

Strain scores four goals in 10-6 loss to No. 13 Amherst

LEWISTON, Maine -- Quinn Moroney scored three unanswered goals, the first one as time expired on the first quarter, lifting No. 13 nationally ranked Amherst to a 5-1 lead en route to a 10-6 victory over the Bates College men's lacrosse team on Saturday afternoon at Garcelon Field, in the season opener for both teams.

Moroney led the Jeffs (1-0, 1-0 NESCAC) with three goals and one assist, while Kane Haffey added two scores. Dylan Park and Mike Litner contributed a goal and an assist apiece. Cody Tranbarger made 15 saves in goal for the Jeffs, who outshot the Bobcats 49-36, including a 30-21 edge in shots on goal. Moroney and Charlie Gill had five ground balls apiece, while Drew Kelleher won 11 of 18 faceoffs and was credited with 10 ground balls.

Bates senior captain Jack Strain (Montclair, N.J.) scored a game-high four goals to keep the Bobcats in the game. Bates junior goalie Joe Faria (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.) made a career-high 20 saves. Sophomore Kyle Weber (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) scored the Bobcats' first goal, and sophomore Scott Baber (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) added his first career goal in the fourth quarter. Junior Ken O'Friel (Scarsdale, N.Y.) scooped a team-high six ground balls.

Connor Crump opened the game's scoring for Amherst 5:11 into the first quarter with an unassisted tally, and Gill followed 1:38 later on an assist by Park.

Weber closed the gap to 2-1 with an unassisted goal after junior defender Colby Spehler (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.) stole the ball from the Jeffs.

Neither team scored until the last second of the first quarter. After a Crump shot went wide and out of bounds to stop the clock, Moroney wheeled into the circle and shot past Faria for a 3-1 Amherst lead at the end of the first period.

Kelleher won the ensuing faceoff to start the second quarter and with 13:48 to go, Moroney backed his defender down into the circle before turning and bouncing a shot hard off the turf and into the upper reaches of the Bates net, making it 4-1. Two minutes later, Moroney struck again with a virtually identical move for a 5-1 lead.

Strain closed the gap at the 8:52 mark to finish a Bates clear. But Park scored his goal 38 seconds later, off another faceoff win by Kelleher, switching from his right to his left hand to free up a running shot from the left of the circle, and returning the Jeffs' lead to four goals (6-2). An interference call on Bates gave Amherst a man-up opportunity and the Jeffs cashed in with Litner feeding Haffey to make it 7-2 at the half.

The first nine minutes of the third quarter transpired without a goal, until Strain struck again with 6:02 left to cut the gap to 7-3.

Amherst responded with three scores in a row to open up a 10-3 advantage before the end of the third quarter. Litner struck with 4:51 to go, followed at the 1:30 mark by an outstanding high shot by Amherst's Chris Albanese, released from 15 yards out. Amherst opened a game-high 10-3 lead with 1:00 left in the quarter, with Haffey one-timing a cross-zone pass from Moroney.

Bates played its best in the fourth quarter, outscoring Amherst 3-0 in the period, all by Strain. It was the one quarter in which the Bobcats won more ground balls than the Jeffs (9-7), and Faria made five saves in the period. After Strain made it 10-4 with 9:35 to go, Bates scored its first man-up goal of the season, with sophomore Andrew Melvin (Medfield, Mass.) finding Strain open at the top of the circle with a pass from behind Amherst's goal, making it 10-5 with 4:50 left. Bates sophomore Sam Francis (Newburyport, Mass.) won the ensuing faceoff and ground ball and Strain made it 10-6 with 4:19 left in the game. Amherst regrouped and outshot Bates 5-2 over the final three minutes of the game, keeping the score at 10-6.

Bates plays host to the University of New England in a non-conference game on Tuesday at 7pm.

Nor'easters begin 2015 with 12-11 win at Wheaton

NORTON, Mass. -- Seven different players scored for the University of New England men's lacrosse team in a 12-11 season-opening victory over Wheaton College (Mass.) on Saturday afternoon (Feb. 28) at Nordin Field.

Big Blue (1-0) never trailed in the contest, and built a lead of as many as five (7-2, 8-3) in 1st-half action before the Lyons (0-1) closed the gap late.

Among those scoring a pair for the Nor'easters were senior Shamus Higginbottom, junior Sam Cloutier, sophomores Dan Auger and David Rubenstein, and first-year Tom Luttrell. Auger and classmate Andrew Curro each had two assists. Seniors Geoff Bruno and Pat Reid also found the back of the cage for the visitors, who were out-shot 46-34.

Sophmores Connor Leggett and Sean Conger combined to win 16 of the 26 face-offs in the match, and senior Steven Hughes had a team-high six ground balls. Between the pipes, junior John Dusel posted 16 saves.

For Wheaton, Kyle Rumberger had three goals while Matthew Hillman and Will Morrison combined for four goals and five assists. In addition to a marker and two assists, Kyle Neale tallied game-highs of eight ground balls and four caused turnovers. In goal, Ryan Clair made 11 stops.

After trading the initial goals (1-1), UNE went on a 6-1 spurt over 13 minutes spanning into the 2nd period. The Lyons, however, pulled to within 8-6 by halftime.

Wheaton made it 8-7 early in the 3rd, but the Nor'easters regained separation with three straight before settling on an 11-8 cushion through 45 minutes.

Reid put Big Blue ahead, 12-9, with 4:31 to go, only to see the Lyons reduced the deficit to just one with 20 seconds remaining. The hosts won the ensuing face-off, but a turnover sealed the result for UNE.

The Nor'easters travel to Bates College on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. contest. Wheaton gets back to work the same afternoon against UMass Dartmouth.

MEN'S LACROSSE SET FOR OPENER WITH MANY PLAYERS BACK

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's lacrosse team begins the 2015 season with the top 10 leading scorers returning, an experienced goaltender, and arguably the top face-off man in the league.

The Mules, a year after going 7-8 overall, will have higher expectations when the season opens Saturday with a 1 p.m. game at Trinity College.

Colby went 6-2 at home last year on Bill Alfond Field, but the Mules were just 1-6 away from Waterville. Colby will play at Hamilton College next Saturday in its second game. Trinity and Hamilton were a combined 3-17 in league play last year, making the first two games very important.

Second-year head coach Jack Sandler got the Mules back in the New England Small College Athletic Conference playoffs after the team missed the postseason in 2013.

"With one of the largest group of returners I've had in 10 years, I'm excited that we will have a strong grasp of the overarching philosophy of play. That will allow us to get deeper into specifics on the field," said Sandler, who was head coach for eight years at Skidmore College before coming to Colby.

The Mules should be able to score more goals this season. Austin Sayre, the NESCAC Rookie of the Year in 2014, led Colby in scoring with 36 goals and 11 assists for 47 points. Derek Youngman (33 goals, 10 assists), John Grimaldi (29 goals, 12 assists), Mark Philipps (16 goals, 4 assists), Alex Rutan (11 goals, 7 assists), and Brendan McNeill (2 goals, 10 assists) all had 10 points or more last year.

Youngman and Grimaldi are both captains along with goaltender Tyler Will and defender Peter Willauer.

"Our nine seniors have been paramount to creating a culture that will allow us to overcome the adversity that we will inevitably face this spring," Sandler said.

Garen Fabian (6 goals, 2 assists), Austin Frank (4 goals, 4 assists), Conor MacLaverty (2 goals, 6 assists), and Jeff Vaz (4 goals, 3 assists) are the other top 10 scorers returning for the Mules.

Frank, as a first-year last season, was first in the NESCAC in face-off percentage (66.4, 184-for-277), second in face-offs won per game (12.3), and third in most face-offs won (184). He scooped 127 groundballs, many coming off easy face-off wins. Max Eberhart also returns after winning 50 percent (24-for-48) of his face-offs.

Will was fourth in the NESCAC in save percentage (57.6) and fifth in the league in total saves (194). Dylan Rothenberg, Justin Waligory, and Harrison Zhu also saw minutes in goal last year.

"Our ability to control possessions with Austin Frank at face-off will be a huge boost," Sandler said. "Having a goalie as capable as Tyler Will will only instill a sense of confidence in our defense."

Willauer was first among defenders in groundballs (33) and was tied for the team lead in caused turnovers (13). Kenny Jacobson also returns on defense after tying Willauer in caused turnovers and finishing with 25 groundballs. Sandler expects newcomers Graham Lian and Brad McCarthy to step in and play key roles defensively. Jeb Waters (25 groundballs), Riley Burke (13 groundballs, 6 caused turnovers), and Hunter Moore (17 groundballs) were all contributors last year. Josh Reed, Harry Nicholas, Kyle Duca, Joseph Anile, Russ Ollis, and Sean Dougherty also will vie for minutes on defense.

Sayre, Youngman, Grimaldi, and Philipps will be counted for more offensive production on attack. Sandler also hopes to get goals from first-years Tucker Dietrick, Tanner Holifield, and Myles Smith. Holifield will be an attacker and Dietrick and Smith are midfielders. Kevin Seiler (2 goals, 2 assists) returns on attack, while first-years Harrison Alpaugh and Kevin Beil will look to contribute.

The Mules have plenty of depth in the midfield, with Rutan, Frank, MacLaverty, Fabian, Vaz, McNeill, and Sam Wasserman (3 goals, 3 assists) leading the way. Whit Harwood, Jack Bratches, and Thomas Brewster also return after playing key minutes last year. Sophomore Billy Polk and first-years Cillian Connor, Charles Martin, William Erwin, Liam Simes, Matt Sindler, and Michael Logan will look for minutes.

The Mules will have their home opener on Wednesday, March 11, against Maine Maritime Academy at 4:30 p.m

COLBY MEN'S LACROSSE FIGHTS BACK FOR WIN OVER TRINITY, 9-7

HARTFORD, Conn. --- Derek Youngman scored four of his five goals in the second half to help the Colby College men's lacrosse team bounce back from a 5-1 halftime deficit on the way to a 9-7 victory over Trinity College on Saturday.

The Mules are 1-0 overall and 1-0 in the NESCAC after a six-goal explosion in the third quarter. Colby will head to Hamilton College for another league game next Saturday at 1 p.m.

"I'm so proud of the way the team competed today," Colby head coach Jack Sandler said. "Even down 5-1 at half, the guys trusted the game plan and each other. That led to a breakout third quarter."

Colby nearly got blown out in the opening quarter and trailed 3-0. The damage could have been worse, but Mule goaltender Tyler Will made eight of his 17 saves in the first 15 minutes.

Youngman scored two minutes into the second quarter for Colby's first goal. The Bantams, though, received goals from Matthew Hauck and Ryan Cholnoky to take a 5-1 lead into intermission.

Sandler and his staff made the necessary adjustments at halftime. The Mules scored six unanswered goals to take a 7-5 lead into the final quarter.

John Grimaldi scored just 1:24 into the third quarter from Austin Sayre to start the rally. Youngman then scored three straight goals to the game at 5-5. Two of the goals came on man-up situations. The third and fifth goals were unassisted, while Grimaldi added an assist on Colby's fourth goal of the game.

Sayre, who had six goals in his collegiate debut against Trinity last year, put the Mules up 6-5 with 5:42 left in the third. Youngman added his fifth of the contest from first-year Tanner Holifield on another man-up goal for a 7-5 margin.

The Bantams received two goals from Charlie Malhame with 8:12 and 5:51 left in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 7-7.

Grimaldi scored the game-winning goal unassisted with 4:27 to go and Holifield notched his first collegiate goal for insurance with 2:28 remaining.

The Mules were 3-for-3 in man-up situations and held Trinity to no goals in five opportunities.

Will only had three saves in the middle two quarters and then came up big again with six stops in the fourth. Trinity's Makar Zaverucha also played well with 14 saves.

Austin Frank had five groundballs and won nine face-offs for Colby. Kenny Jacobson added three groundballs.

Malhame led Trinity with three goals and Hauck had two scores.

YOUNGMAN EARNS MEN'S LACROSSE PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONOR

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Derek Youngman (Cohasset, Mass.), who had four of his five goals in the second half in the Mules' 9-7 win at Trinity College, earned the New England Small College Athletic Conference Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week honor Monday.

Youngman's big day helped the Mules make the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division III poll at 10th in the region on Monday.

The Mules fell behind 3-0 after one quarter and 5-1 at halftime against the Bantams, who had been beaten 14-4 last year against Colby at Bill Alfond Field.

Youngman scored three straight goals -- two on the man-up and two unassisted -- to tie the game at 5-5. He also scored again later on the man-up to put the Mules up 7-5.

Youngman was 3-for-3 in scoring goals in Colby's three man-up situations. Youngman finished with a shooting percentage of 45.5 percent (5-for-11) and added two groundballs.

Youngman was second on the Mules in scoring last year with 33 goals and 10 assists for 43 points.

The Mules will play at Hamilton College this Saturday at 1 p.m.

Season Preview: UMF Men's Lacrosse

FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington men’s lacrosse team enters its sixth season in hopes of claiming a North Atlantic Conference (NAC) championship title.

After getting selected sixth in the North Atlantic Conference preseason poll, the team looks to build off last year’s momentum despite losing eight seniors. With a 4-7 overall mark and an even 4-4 in conference play, UMF finished in a three-way tie for fourth and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Husson.

First-year head coach, Jim Dock ’96, has a solid mix of upperclassmen and younger talent in his rookie season. Zach Rowland (Fryeburg, Maine); David Grainger (Lexington, Mass); Josh Smith (Sidney, Maine); and Brandon Monroe (Oakland, Maine) enter their final season in a Beaver uniform.

The junior class of Ray Swaby (Greenwich, CT); Nathan Chase (Wells, Maine); Connor Joy (Windham, Maine); and Cameron McAllister (Yarmouth, Maine) bring their experience to the forefront of the UMF attack.

The underclassmen of the team consist of five sophomores and two freshmen. The sophomores include Ronie Morales (Houston, TX); Tom McGowan (Windham, Maine); Joseph Maldonado (Fresno, CA); Joshua Abrams (Poland, Maine); and Casey Wrigley (Oakland, Maine). Chase Rerrick (So. Portland, Maine) and Sean Zubrod (Sidney, Maine) enter the season as UMF’s freshman class.

The 2015 schedule includes non-conference stops at Rivier, Lasell, Southern Maine, and Becker, while hosting Daniel Webster in the regular-season finale on April 21. Conference play starts March 21 at Castleton.

UMaine-Farmington kicks off the 2015 campaign on Wednesday, March 3at Saint Joseph’s (Me.). The game will be played at Deering Memorial Stadium at Deering High School.
