Division I men’s lacrosse week in review for teams in Maryland (May 14)

The three area Division I men’s lacrosse programs in the NCAA tournament are batting 1.000 so far.

Top-seeded Maryland, No. 5 seed Johns Hopkins and No. 6 seed Loyola Maryland survived the first round of the postseason and advanced to next weekend’s quarterfinals.

The Greyhounds (13-3) will face No. 3 seed Yale (14-3) on Saturday at noon at Hofstra in Hempstead, N.Y. The second game of the doubleheader will involve Denver (13-3) and No. 2 seed Albany (15-2) at 2:30 p.m.

The reigning national champion Terps (13-3) will open Sunday’s games by meeting Cornell (13-4) at noon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The second quarterfinal of that day will pit No. 4 seed Duke (14-3) against the Blue Jays (12-4).

Here’s how the three Division I teams from the state fared:

No. 1 Maryland

Record: 13-3

Previous result: Def. No. 18 Robert Morris, 14-11, on Sunday

Note: Senior midfielder Connor Kelly scored three of his game-high four goals in the third quarter and fifth-year senior midfielder Tim Rotanz had two goals and one assist in the fourth to lift the top-seeded Terps to their fifth consecutive quarterfinal appearance.

No. 5 Johns Hopkins

Record: 12-4

Previous result: Def. No. 12 Georgetown, 10-9, in overtime on Sunday

Note: Despite an 8-3 deficit in the third quarter, junior attackman Kyle Marr scored all five of his goals in the fourth quarter, and senior attackman Shack Stanwick (Boys’ Latin) scored the winning goal with 29 seconds left in the extra session to propel the No. 5 seed Blue Jays to their first quarterfinal since 2015.

No. 6 Loyola Maryland

Record: 13-3

Previous result: Def. No. 10 Virginia, 14-12, on Saturday

Note: Junior attackman Pat Spencer (Boys’ Latin) became the program’s single-season leader in assists (58) and points (91), and the No. 6 seed Greyhounds overcame a two-hour weather delay to avenge a 13-12 double-overtime loss to the Cavaliers in the season opener and advance to the quarterfinals for the second time in the past three years.
