Card, Love recieve CAA accolades

Maxwell Sparr/Collegian

The Colonial Athletic Association awarded Hofstra attackman Jay Card and Towson goalkeeper Travis Love with men’s lacrosse co-Player of the Week honors on Monday.

In an 18-2 victory over Manhattan last Tuesday, Card produced two goals and three assists. As part of the Konica-Minolta Big City Classic in the New Meadowlands Stadium, the No. 10 Pride took on conference foe Delaware.  The game was highly contested, with Hofstra coming out on top 12-11. Card chipped in with a hat trick and three assists.

Love helped secure a pair of victories for Towson last week, over UMBC  and Massachusetts, with a combined 21 saves . Love (.583 save percentage) is second in the CAA in that category and third in goals against average at 9.06.

 Thomas secured 60 percent of his face-offs in the games against the Retrievers and UMass last week and earned seven ground balls. In the win over UMass, Thomas went 9-for-16 on face-offs and retrieved three ground balls. In the win over UMBC, he went 9-for-14 on face-offs and added four ground balls.

Nittany Lions fall to Drexel

Despite efforts made by freshman Kyle VanThof and sophomore Matthew Mackrides, each with a pair of goals, Penn State fell, 12-7, at Drexel Saturday afternoon.

The Nittany Lions started the game by taking an early lead with an unassisted goal from VanThof at the 11:51 mark in the first quarter. Drexel responded with three unanswered goals in one minute, with two of the scores coming from Drexel attackman Colin Ambler.

The remainder of the first quarter was a back-and-forth affair. Ambler scored his third goal while Mackrides nabbed his second of the game. He now leads the team with 27. Two more goals by the Dragons secured a 6-3 lead going into the second period.

In the second quarter, Ambler got his fourth and final goal of the game.  Junior Kevin Stockel also added his first goal of the game to make it 8-3.

After Penn State managed to score a couple of goals, the third quarter ended with a score of 10-5. Both teams added a pair of goals in the fourth quarter, the last of which came from the Nittany Lions’ Matt Shankoff with one minute, eight seconds remaining in the game.

Penn State goalkeeper David Baker ended the game with 11 saves. The Nittany Lions outshot the Dragons, 40-35.

Blue Hens fall in Classic

Delaware dropped a tight one to conference foe No. 10 Hofstra, 12-11, on Saturday.

Senior All-American Curtis Dickson led the Blue Hens with five points on four goals and one assist. This marks his 20th-straight game with a goal and his 51st with at least one point.

Although it controlled face-offs, winning 19-of-27, Delaware could not overcome a third quarter which included five straight goals by the Pride. Down 11-7, the Blue Hens battled back with a goal which Hofstra erased.  The Pride’s Dan Stein added another goal to push the lead to 12-8, a lead that they kept despite a late three-goal rally from the Blue Hens.
