March 4, 2011
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (1-1, 0-0 BIG EAST) travels to New York, N.Y. to take on BIG EAST Opponent St. John's University (1-1, 0-0) on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. at DaSilva Memorial Field. The game will be the 11th meeting between the two schools, with the Hoyas holding a 9-1 series advantage.
Georgetown will look to rebound from a 20-8 loss to Maryland in College Park, Md. last Saturday. Georgetown led early, but Maryland would score two late first half goals to take a 6-4 lead before halftime. Then the Terrapins used a 14-4 second half run to put the Hoyas away. Max Seligmann (Essex Fells, Md./Delbarton) scored three goals and had an assist in the Hoyas loss.
Sophomore attackman Davey Emala (Baltimore, Md./Gilman) stepped into a starting role after scoring three goals in the Hoyas opening win against Jacksonville and leads the Blue & Gray with four goals on the season. Seligmann, Travis Comeau (Alberta, Can./The Hill Academy) and Zack Angel (Park Hall, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) are tied for second on the team with three goals apiece.
Brian Tabb (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) is 25-for-48 on the season in face-offs and has picked up a team-leading 10 ground balls. Barney Ehrmann (Baltimore, Md./Gilman) has nine ground balls and a team-leading nine caused turnovers. Chris Nourse (Erieville, N.Y./The Hotchkiss School) has caused eight turnovers on the season.
THREE HOYAS NAMED TO THE TEWAARATON WATCH LIST:
Ehrmann, Dan Hostetler and Rickey Mirabito were all named to the Tewaaraton Watch List when the Greater Washington Sports Alliance announced its early season watch list on Friday afternoon. This annual list is made up of the top lacrosse players across all three divisions of collegiate lacrosse and highlights the early hopefuls for the 2011 Tewaaraton Award honors. All watch list nominees are carefully screened and identified by two Selection Committees, one committee for the male athletes and another committee for the female athletes which are comprised of college coaches. The watch list will eventually be whittled down three more times until the top ten male and female Tewaaraton Award Finalists are named in May of 2011.
MIRABITO AGAINST THE RED STORM:
Graduate student Rickey Mirabito (Binghamton, N.Y./Chenango Forks) has scored eight goals against St. John's in his last two games against the Red Storm, including five in the Hoyas 2009 loss at DaSilva Memorial Field.
ABOUT ST. JOHN'S:
The Red Storm is coming off of a 10-8 loss to No. 18 Yale last Saturday. St. John's bounced back from a 7-1 halftime deficit, scoring five unanswered fourth quarter goals, two by freshman Ryan Fitzgerald. Sophomore Jordan Rothman won six-of-eight fourth quarter face-offs to bring STJ back within two goals.
St. John's sophomore Jeff Lowman was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll after recording 15 saves against Yale last week. It is the second straight week Lowman has been honored by the league.
