Mass. College Lax: BU Concludes Season With 16-11 Setback To No. 3 Duke

By NoontimeSports.com 

The Boston University men’s lacrosse team concluded its inaugural season with a 16-11 setback to No. 3 Duke University this afternoon in Boston. BU’s Christian Carson-Banister concluded the contest with an NCAA single-game high of 25 saves, which is also a career-high for the freshman goaltender, too. Below is the release courtesy of the BU Athletics Communication Office:

BOSTON – The Boston University men’s lacrosse program concluded its inaugural season against No. 3 Duke, and despite a career-high 25 saves from freshman Christian Carson-Banister, the Terriers dropped a 16-11 decision to the 2013 national champion on Sunday afternoon at Nickerson Field.

BU finished its first varsity season at 2-12, with both wins coming in Patriot League play. The Blue Devils improved to 13-3 and will play in the NCAA tournament. The Terriers continued a trend of playing ranked opponents tough at home, as they lost their three games to current top-20 teams this season by only a combined nine goals.

Carson-Banister was terrific in the cage, as he stopped 25 shots, an NCAA single-game high in 2014. His previous career high was 16 saves. Carson-Banister made eight saves in the first quarter and helped keep the Terriers within no more than five goals throughout the contest.

Three seniors – Kyle Lange, Emerson Rogers and Brad Sauln – were honored before the game. They are the first graduating class in program history. Both Lange and Sauln played on Sunday, while Rogers was sidelined with an injury. All three will receive their degrees later this month.

Freshman Sam Talkow had a terrific day at the X, winning a career-best 16 faceoffs and leading the Terriers with a career-high three goals. Classmates Ryan Johnston and Clay Phillips each tallied twice, while sophomore Sammy Davis also had two goals. Freshman Adam Schaal matched a program record with four assists while classmate Cal Dearth recorded a pair of assists. Redshirt freshman Sam Tenney and freshman Chad Bell each found the back of the net and freshman Craig Zebrowski provided an assist.

On defense, freshman Greg Wozniak had another strong performance, as he led the team with three caused turnovers and also collected five ground balls. Talkow led both teams with 11 ground balls, one shy of his career high. BU was edged by just one, 33-32 in the ground-ball battle, and held Duke to 0-for-5 on extra-man opportunities.

Talkow electrified the home crowd right from the opening whistle. He won the first faceoff and raced into the Duke zone before ripping a shot top corner to give the Terriers a 1-0 lead just six seconds into the proceedings. Both teams traded possessions before Johnston put the Terriers ahead, 2-0, at the 9:54 mark thanks to an assist from Death.

Duke scored the next four goals of the quarter, but Schaal fed Tenney for the redshirt freshman’s 16th goal of the season to make it a 4-3 game after 15 minutes. The Blue Devils began the second stanza with three consecutive goals before Johnston and Davis each scored to cut the Duke lead to 7-5 with 6:39 to play in the half. Duke deposited two more goals before halftime, however, to take a 9-5 lead into the break.

The Terriers scored two of the first three third-quarter goals, as Phillips and Talkow got on the board six seconds apart to chase Duke goalkeeper Luke Aaron (four saves) from the contest in favor of Kyle Turri (six saves). After a Blue Devil goal made it an 11-7 game, Phillips and Talkow again combined to score two straight, the second of which completed Talkow’s hat trick and cut the Duke advantage to 11-9.

That was as close as the Terriers got, however, as Josh Dionne rattled off three straight tallies to give the Blue Devils a 14-9 lead. Davis and Bell each scored to bring BU within three at 14-11 with 3:43 remaining in regulation, but the Blue Devils sealed the game with two goals.

Courtesy of the Boston University athletic communications office, here’s this evening’s release from the men’s lacrosse contest against No. 17 Harvard University:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Three Terriers recorded three points but the Boston University men’s lacrosse team suffered a 14-9 setback at No. 17 Harvard on Tuesday night at Harvard Stadium.

BU (1-10) and Harvard (7-4) each wore One Fund socks during the game to honor the victims of last year’s Boston Marathon bombings. For more information on The One Fund or how you can help, please visit OneFundBoston.org.

Freshman Ryan Johnston and redshirt freshman Sam Tenney each tallied three goals while freshman Cal Dearth added a goal and two assists. Tyler Zickel made his first collegiate start in the cage, with the freshman goalkeeper making nine saves.

Sam Talkow was solid at the face-off X once again, as the freshman was 14-of-25. Eight different Terriers recorded a point, with freshman Adam Schaal collecting a pair of assists. Freshmen James Clarke, Clay Phillips and Craig Zebrowski each had a helper while sophomore Sammy Davis found the back of the net for the second straight game.

Johnston got the Terriers on the board first just 1:11 into the proceedings when Schaal found him out of the X and the Elora, Ont., native fired home near the right post. Harvard scored the final five goals of the quarter, however, to take a 4-1 lead.

Tenney scored the Terriers’ first of four man-up goals with 10:33 left in the second quarter to cut the Crimson lead to 4-2. Harvard responded with a four-goal run before Dearth notched his seventh marker of the season to make it a 7-3 contest entering halftime.

The teams traded goals to begin the third quarter, with Tenney tallying his second of the game after a great individual effort. He forced a turnover as the Crimson goalkeeper attempted a clear and quickly deposited the ball into the back of the net.

After the Crimson gained a 10-4 advantage, Tenney completed his hat trick with 6:23 to play in the third quarter thanks to an assist from Clay Phillips during an extra-man opportunity. The score remained 10-5 into the fourth quarter before Harvard tallied twice early in the stanza to take a 12-5 lead. Johnston collected two man-up goals before Davis rocketed a shot into the top left corner to make it a five-goal game at 13-8 with 9:08 remaining in regulation.

The Terriers’ rally was thwarted, however, and the Crimson collected its final goal of the game with 5:38 on the clock. Dearth converted a feed from Zebrowski to make it a 14-9 game with 4:25 to play, but that was the final goal of the contest.

BU will resume its Patriot League schedule on Saturday when the Terriers travel to Baltimore to face top-ranked Loyola (Md.). Game time is set for 1 p.m.

Mass. College Lax: Tenney Records A Hat Trick In BU Setback To Navy

By NoontimeSports.com 

Courtesy of the Boston University athletic communication office, here’s this afternoon’s release from the men’s lacrosse contest against Navy:

BOSTON – Redshirt freshman Sam Tenney notched a hat trick and freshman Christian Carson-Banister made 12 saves, but the Boston University men’s lacrosse team dropped a 13-7 decision at Navy on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field.

Three Terriers combined to provide the BU (1-8, 1-4 PL) goals, as Tenney tallied three while freshmen Ryan Johnston and Cal Dearth each scored a pair. Dearth also added two assists for a four-point afternoon. Freshman Sam Talkow won 11 faceoffs and collected the first two assists of his collegiate career to go along with a game-high eight ground balls. Sophomore Sammy Davis also had an assist, as did freshmen Adam Schaal and Craig Zebrowski.

Navy (4-5, 3-3 PL) outshot BU, 12-2, in the opening quarter but Johnston opened the scoring with 6:05 to play off a feed from Dearth during the first extra-man opportunity of the contest. After Navy scored to tie the game, 1-1, the Terriers regained the lead just seven seconds later with 2:45 remaining in the quarter. Talkow cleanly won a faceoff, raced into the box and quickly dished to Tenney, who fired a shot past John Connors. The Mids scored with eight seconds left in the first quarter to tie the game before getting their first lead of the game, 3-2, 3:20 into the second stanza.

Dearth leveled the score at 3-3 with 7:31 to play in the first half. Schaal was behind the Navy net and sent a pass to Dearth at the top of the box. He fired a shot past Connors for his fifth goal of the year. Carson-Banister then came up with perhaps his best save of the game when he stoned Gabe Voumard from point-blank range while the Terriers were a man-down.

The Mids scored four straight goals to end the quarter and take a 7-3 lead into halftime. Johnston began the third quarter with his team-best 11th goal of the season to make it a 7-4 game. Navy thought it would take a 9-4 lead into the final 15 minutes after scoring with eight seconds left in the third quarter, but Talkow won the ensuing draw and, like in the first quarter, quickly found Tenney for a goal with just three ticks left on the clock.

The Terriers began a comeback attempt with two straight goals to open the fourth quarter. Tenney tallied his 10th marker of the season just 33 seconds in before Zebrowski found Dearth with 10:57 to play to cut the Navy lead to 9-7. That was as close as the Terriers got, however, as the Mids added four more goals to seal the victory.

The teams were nearly even in faceoffs and ground balls, with the Terriers winning 11 of 23 draws and collecting 22 ground balls to Navy’s 24. Freshman Cam Pincus secured a career-high five ground balls while classmate Greg Wozniak secured three ground balls and caused two turnovers.

BU will host Army in the Terriers’ final Patriot League game at Nickerson Field this season. Game time is set for 12 p.m.
