criticize the way we played that game, but I feel like that game was a big thing in propelling this team to believing, Spallina said. I think if you ever going to slay them and what they bring, and their incredible team and everything they have, then you have to believe. And we believe. Brook slowed the game down against Maryland in the regular season matchup, taking time with possessions and trailed by only two goals with five minutes remaining in the game.
Virginia will next take on sixth seeded Georgetown. The Cavaliers are 7 3 all time against the Hoyas and hold a 2 0 advantage in the NCAA Tournament. The two teams last met in 2008 with the Hoyas getting an 8 7 win in Charlottesville.
Caridi was one of four players to make the transition from Division II Adelphi with Spallina along with Demmianne Cook, Claire Petersen and Emily Mercier. All four have been an integral part of the Seawolves success since their arrival.
were ahead 4 3. We got a couple off ball fouls and that was a little frustrating, those last three minutes of the Nike Zoom Clear Out Performance Review
the half field, we have a lot of similarities, he said. feeder behind the cage, some great cutters, defensively they play a similar system they try to take the top offensive players out of their comfort zone. If you win this time of year, it doesn matter if it 1 0 or 15 14. You live to fight another day. After today there are 16 teams left and we honored to be one of them. Seawolves scored two quick goals early in the game to take a 2 0 lead, but Towson fought back with two scores of their own around the midway point to send the game into halftime tied at two. The Seawolves went on a 4 1 run through the first 15 minutes of the second half to take a 6 3 lead, eventually winning 8 6.

halftime to be up by two was huge. Maddy Keeshan eight meter was critical and came at a really important time, Myers said. doesn usually get on the eight meter, doesn practice them very often. The whole team said to give Maddy a chance to score the goal and she did just that. was potentially a factor as well as both teams played in hot weather for the first time all season. With temperatures hovering in the mid 80 and the sun shining, depth and conditioning come into play.
is average, she got lucky tonight, joked Spallina sarcastically as Caridi sat next to him in the postgame press conference.
style is a little different, continued Spallina about the former DII goalie of the Year. think she plays a little more like a men goalie. She real good at reading shooters; her outlets are immaculate. Without Frankie, we not sitting here. We getting on a bus and heading home. Amber Kupres led Stony Brook with three goals while Cook and Hillier tallied two each and Petersen finished with three assists, two of which went to Kupres. The Stony Brook offense was much more in sync in the second half, which Spallina attributed to first half nerves that resulted in dropped passes and missed opportunities in transition.
it got to that point, people may not like, Spallina said. lot of lacrosse purists may not enjoy it, but to quote Herm Edwards, play to win the game. If I have every Maryland fan throwing tomatoes at me Sunday at 2:00, it means we did our job. For us to come in here and say we going to go run a track meet with a track star, then that not a very good job by Joe Spallina. So I have to put my team in the best position to win.
when we win draws, we win games, said sophomore midfielder Courtney Swan, who takes the draw for the Cavaliers and finished with seven on Nike Kyrie 2 White Gold

first half, said Penn coach Karin Brower Corbett. thought maybe we go into halftime tied and we were down two. But we still had 30 minutes to play. Credit to Virginia for coming out hard. They wanted it more today. They beat us to 50 50 balls; we didn shoot well. They beat us on draws and they had the ball a lot you can play defense for that long. coach Julie Myers thought Keeshan goal in particular was a huge momentum shifter. Keeshan, who usually plays defense for the Cavs, was in at midfield.
for anyone that got it. first half was closely contested throughout, and Penn took a 4 3 lead off a Caroline Bunting goal Nike Lebron 12 Nsw Lifestyle Challenge Red with 3:12 remaining. It would be the last time the Quakers would score until the 4:30 mark of the second half as Virginia went on a run of eight straight goals between the end of the first half and midway through the second. Maddy Keeshan and Casey Bocklet both scored on free position shots with less than a minute left to give the Cavaliers a 6 4 halftime lead and momentum heading into the break.
were definitely tired. Penn was tired and I just think we were a little bit deeper and had a little bit more in our tank to give, Myers said.
Goalie Frankie Caridi, who boasts the top save percentage (.543) and goals against average (5.36) in Division I, finished with eight saves, although it seemed like more as Caridi made more than a few point blank stops on Towson shooters.
A rematch with top seeded Maryland awaits Sunday. The Terps beat Stony Brook 8 3 in the regular season, the fewest amount of goals the high powered Maryland offense has scored all season.
Immediately following Stony Brook 8 6 win over Towson at the Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md., Seawolves coach Joe Spallina said he felt like they had just played their twin.
important for us as a program and as an organization to take the 1980 Russian team out of their comfort zone. That something we going to work hard on the next day and a half. Are we scared? I not, and they not, and the girls in that room are not. Could they blow us out? Yeah, they could. Could we beat them? We gonna try.
