UMBC makes changes to starting lineup

UMBC is shaking things up for its annual rivalry with Towson.

The Retrievers have benched junior attackman Rob Grimm and redshirt freshman attackman Matt Gregoire in favor of sophomore Joe Lustgarten and freshman Ryan Johnston.

Grimm is the team leader in both assists (11) and points (18), while Gregoire has registered four goals and two assists. Johnston scored the first two goals of his career in UMBC’s 16-5 loss to No. 10 Stony Brook last Friday night, while Lustgarten scored once.

Sophomore midfielder Scott Hopmann, who ranks second in goals (9), is also taking a seat. Freshman Zach Linkous, who posted one goal and two assists on Friday, will start.

Finally, junior defenseman Tim Shaeffer is being demoted in favor of sophomore Sam McKelvey.
