Midshipmen Put Home-Game Winning Streak on the Line, Play Host to Towson Tuesday
March 11, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Fresh off its 12-11 victory over Patriot League foe Lafayette this past Saturday, the Navy men’s lacrosse team (3-3, 1-1 Patriot League) will step away from conference action to face Towson (2-4) on Tuesday evening. Meeting for the 12th time in series history, the Mids and Tigers will face off at 7:00 pm at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
After being held to just two goals by Bucknell the week prior, Navy’s offense caught fire on Saturday against the the Leopards where five players accounted for the 12 goals including three players with hat tricks. The Mids outscored Lafayette 4-2 to start out the fourth quarter to take a 12-9 advantage, but Lafayette closed to within one after scoring back-to-back goals in the final 17 seconds of the game.
Towson, meanwhile, has won two of its last three contests but surrendered a 10-9 decision in overtime to Marist at home last Friday. Knotted at nine through three quarters, neither team could get on the board in the fourth, forcing overtime. Jack Doherty punched in his fourth goal of the night with just one second remaining in overtime to lead the Red Foxes to victory.
A radio broadcast of Tuesday’s contest will be carried by WNAV 1430 AM/99.9 FM with Pete Medhurst and Joe Miller handling the call. Coverage begins with the Navy lacrosse pregame show at 6:45 pm. The game will also be streamed online via Navy All-Access (subscription) with live stats available at NavySports.com.
