After Maryland’s win over Navy, head coach John Tillman said defenseman Bryce Young was “week-to-week” with an undisclosed injury, while attackman Steven Shollenberger is done for the season.

Hofstra Pride goalie Jack Concannon hopes to lead his team to a CAA title in 2018, pens Bob Herzog of Newsday:

“It was a heartbreaking end for all of us, especially myself,” said Concannon, a second-team All-American last season and a first-team preseason choice for 2018. “That’s not something you ever think is going to happen to you. It’s still something I think about every day, but not negatively. I turned it into motivation to push me every day.”

Having Concannon between the pipes is one reason Hofstra is optimistic about the 2018 season and its chances to finally win the CAA Tournament and earn its first NCAA bid since 2011. “He could be the country’s leading goalie,” Pride coach Seth Tierney said. “He’s a fabulous goaltender and a tremendous leader.”

Concannon, who was among the nation’s leaders in goals-against average (8.8) and save percentage (57.1), said he’s planning to get involved more in the transition game after saves. He is a tri-captain, along with defenseman Brett Osman (25 ground balls) and midfielder Dylan Alderman (18 goals, 18 assists). The Pride returns 31 players, including 16 seniors and eight starters, from a team that won its first 10 games, reached No. 2 in the national rankings, and finished 11-3.

In preseason polls, the Pride is ranked as high as 14th by US Lacrosse. The team is strongly motivated to erase the painful memory of last year’s premature ending, and is also well aware that its home turf, Shuart Stadium, once again is hosting an NCAA Tournament quarterfinal and the Pride definitely would play there if its makes the tournament and wind a first-round game.

“To have a playoff home game is something you dream about. It doesn’t happen very often,” Tierney said.
