College notebook: Things looking up for USM men’s lacrosse
The Huskies are off to a 4-1 start, raising hopes for a program that hasn't had much success.

The University of Southern Maine hasn’t had much success in men’s lacrosse. Over the program’s 16 years, the Huskies have had one winning season, in 2009.

So it’s understandable that the Huskies are quite excited by their 4-1 start this season. They won their first four games before losing to Mount Ida College 17-12 on Wednesday.

“Yeah, we’re feeling pretty good so far,” said sophomore attack Nate DelGiudice, from Oakland (Messalonskee High). We’ve had a good start. We got knocked down a peg (Wednesday). But we know we can play better. So we have to get back to work and focus on the next game. Saturday (at the University of New England) should be a big game for us to get back on track.” ... -lacrosse/

College notebook: Falmouth’s Fay leading Bates surge into men’s lacrosse national rankings
The junior midfielder is one of the best players on one of Division III's top teams.

Charlie Fay knew he would have to make adjustments when he began playing lacrosse at Bates College. But he didn’t expect it to be in terms of winning.

A two-time All-American at Falmouth High, Fay went from contending for championships in every sport he played in high school (soccer, basketball and lacrosse) to winning just four games his freshman year at Bates.

It didn’t sit well with him or his teammates. ... -rankings/

Eastern Connecticut Edges Southern Maine 9-7

MANSFIELD, Conn. -- Sophomore David Borovsky (Burlington, Conn./Lewis S. Mills) snapped a 7-7 tie midway through the fourth quarter to help the Eastern Connecticut State University Warriors defeat the visiting University of Southern Maine Huskies 9-7 in Little East Conference men’s lacrosse action Saturday night at the ECSU Mansfield Complex.

The Warriors have now won four straight games to improve to 5-4 overall. The Huskies have dropped their last three games to fall to 4-3 overall. The game was the LEC opener for both sides.

Borovsky took a feed from junior Nick Fernandes (Fairfield, Conn.) and beat USM sophomore goalie Zach Bessette (Readfield, Maine/Maranacook) for his seventh goal of the season with 8:07 to play and an 8-7 Warrior lead. Senior Cody Carbone (North Reading, Mass.) scored a man-up goal for the Warriors with 2:17 remaining to secure the victory.

Eastern Connecticut received goals from eight different players. Senior Liam Murphy (Dover, N.H.) was the lone repeat scorer. Senior Dan Vasquez (Newington, Conn.) had three points on one goal and two assists. Senior goalie Blake Smaldone (Hamilton, Mass.) earned his fifth win of the season making 11 saves.

USM senior Jeff Urmston (Bellingham, Mass.) led all scorers with four goals. Sophomore Nate DelGiudice (Oakland, Maine/Messalonskee) had two goals and one assist, and junior Seth Wing (West Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner Area) had a goal and three assists. Bessette stopped 13 shots.

The Huskies erased a 1-0 deficit with three straight first-period goals. DelGiudice tied the game at 1-1 before Urmston scored a pair of goals to give the Huskies a 3-1 lead after one quarter.

Eastern sophomore Harrison Urda (Milford, N.H.) and Fernandes bracketed Urmston’s third goal in the second quarter to leave the Huskies with a 4-3 advantage at halftime.

The home side scored twice in the opening seven minutes of the third quarter as senior Michael Dellanno (Wakefield, Mass.) and Murphy found the net. Urmston’s final goal tied the game at 5-5 with 4:19 to play.

Murphy’s second marker and an unassisted goal from Vasquez gave ECSU a 7-5 lead less than three minutes into the final period. DelGiudice responded for the Huskies scoring off a feed from junior Keegan Smith (West Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner Area) at 12:24, and Wing tied the game for the fourth time with 9:40 to play.

Eastern Connecticut finished with a 40-27 edge in shots, and a 31-20 margin in ground balls. Eastern junior midfielder Jesse Schulze (Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y.) won 12 of 19 faceoffs and scooped up four ground balls.

Southern Maine will play Saint Joseph’s College at Fitzpatrick Stadium (Portland, Maine) in its next game on Wednesday (7:30 p.m.). Eastern Connecticut is off until next Saturday (3:00 p.m.) when it plays at Salem State University.

No. 13 Bowdoin storms past No. 6 Bates

LEWISTON — It should be no surprise that Polar Bears did well in the snow. It's the snow in April that was a little bit of a surprise.

Still, that didn't stop Bowdoin from going on the road and beating Bates, 14-10, in a key NESCAC men's lacrosse game at Garcelon Field on Wednesday.

The Polar Bears (8-1, 5-1 NESCAC), ranked No. 13 in the latest USILA Division III Coaches poll, produced an avalanche of goals to start the fourth quarter, turning a 7-7 game after three periods into an 11-7 advantage just over four minutes into the final frame. ... es/1901789
