Does Mount St. Mary’s have their future at midfield? Edward Lee of the Baltimore Sun has more.
The line of sophomore Jack Mangan and freshmen Joe Bethke and Matt Haggerty combined for five goals on 11 shots and four assists in Saturday’s 18-7 rout at Bellarmine, the Mountaineers’ first victory of the season. It marked the debut of that trio, but the threesome’s performance was not terribly startling to coach Tom Gravante.
“We expected that line to be productive,” he said Monday. “Even if they didn’t score, they have the ability to draw slides so that our attack can go to work. That’s exactly what happened. … That’s what these guys were doing in practice. Practice doesn’t lie. We always tell the guys, ‘If you score goals in practice, you’re going to score goals in games.’ We witnessed that as a coaching staff. We were like, ‘Wow, this looks good. This is what we’re hoping for.’ So it did transition to the game against Bellarmine. So we were very happy about that.”
While the 5-foot-9, 180-pound Mangan has been a fixture on the starting midfield for the past three games, Bethke and Haggerty made their debuts despite being listed as attackmen. The 6-0, 180-pound Haggerty has played in all five games including one start on attack, but Saturday was the first time he had registered a point at the collegiate level with one goal and two assists.
The 6-2, 170-pound Bethke, who scored twice, made his first appearance as illness and injuries kept him on the sideline for the first four contests. Gravante said he considered redshirting Bethke, but the rookie forced the coach to change his mind.

All Towson needed was just a little patience in their win over Johns Hopkins, from Todd Karpovich of Pressbox Online.
"This week, we've been patient," [Joe] Seider said. "This Hopkins defense, they'll be aggressive. They're a great defense, but if we're patient with the ball, things will open up."
Towson head coach Shawn Nadelen was impressed with his team's balance. Towson outshot the Blue Jays, 37-23, and won the groundball battle, 32-20.
At the beginning of the season, Nadelen put an emphasis on winning faceoffs, and sophomore transfer Alex Woodall has embraced that role. Woodall won 16 of 25 matchups against the Blue Jays to set the tone.
"It was big, momentum wise," Nadelen said about Woodall's performance. "It stops their momentum and shifts momentum into our favor. He was able to be very efficient at the X, which we were hoping to have."
