Games of Note

  • This game was the only one that was really a nailbiter late in the game. And Mercer came out on top with a 10-9 win over Cleveland State thanks to a Michael Quinn tally midway through the extra session. The Bears held an 8-4 lead at half, thanks to a 4-1 second quarter. But the Vikings put in Stephen Russo to start the second half in goal, who gave up only two goals on four shots.
  • Maryland continued their recent success with a 13-7 win over Marist. Attackman Jared Bernhardt and midfielder Connor Kelly set multiple personal bests by combining for 15 points, the first since Rob Wurzburger and Mark Douglas achieved the feat against Ohio State back in 1991. Bernhardt set career-highs in goals (5), assists (2), and points (7), while Kelly set career-highs in assists (4) and points (8). Curtis Corley had a career-high three caused turnovers. LSM Nick Brozowski did play after leaving Saturday’s game against Navy.
  • Army used a six-goal second quarter and a 7-0 run to run away from NJIT, 14-5. Nate Jones scored all of his three goals in that span, while Matt Manown and Conor Glancy each had two goals and one assist. The Black Knights have a big test ahead on Saturday as they host Rutgers.
  • Elsewhere, Jake Carraway (5 Gs, 1 A) and Daniel Bucaro (2 Gs, 3 As) helped Georgetown blow out High Point, 15-5. Brent Noseworthy’s hat-trick was just enough as Michigan held off a late Bellarmine rally in the fourth for a 9-7 win. UMass’ Chris Connolly (4 Gs) and Buddy Carr (3 Gs, 4 As) to a 13-9 win over Sacred Heart for their first win of the season. And the Bearcats gave up 21 goals for the second straight game, as Mike Hawkins’ five goals helped Colgate stay undefeated at 2-0.

Three Stars of the Day

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ - Matt Manown, M, Army West Point: The midfielder didn’t have an explosive day on offense with two goals and an assist, but he was able to provide some quality defense, scooping up two ground balls and causing three turnovers. I like midfielders being able to play both sides of the ball.

⭐️⭐️ - Jared Bernhardt, A, Maryland: In his second game starting at attack, Bernhardt racked up career-highs in every scoring category on 10 shots. Brian Corrigan was touted as a talented goalie coming into the season, but hasn’t been a difference maker in his first three games of the season.

⭐️ - Connor Kelly, M, Maryland: Arguably the best midfielder in the game and Bernhardt’s former midfield mate, the senior put up four points and four assists, as he helped the Terps up top in a scoring barrage against the Red Foxes.

Top Rookie - Mike Hawkins, A, Colgate: I definitely want to give this kid a written shoutout as well. Five goals in the win over Binghamton after posting four goals and three assists against Marist on Saturday. Definitely a rookie to watch, and he could be Colgate’s third straight Patriot League Rookie of the Year if he keeps this performance up.
