Outlook: The Retrievers showed some fire en route to the America East tournament final – the program's first appearance there since 2009 – before falling, 19-10, to then-No. 10 Albany. The team got to that stage by scoring six goals in the final six minutes of regulation in a come-from-behind 15-13 victory over Hartford in a tournament semifinal. Graduation sapped the team of attackmen Scott Jones (35 G, 6 A) and Joe Lustgarten (12 G, 20 A), but with the conference's reigning Rookie of the Year in freshman midfielder Patrick Young (32 G, 7 A) and redshirt senior attackman Matt Gregoire (28-4), the prevailing thought is that UMBC might not have stretch itself to find components on offense. The troubles may exist on the opposing end of the field where the defense ranked 59th in average goals allowed and bid farewell to its best close defenseman in Ethan Murphy (52 GB, 16 CT). Still, settling on a starting goalkeeper in sophomore Wes DiRito (12.25 GAA, .451 save percentage) and having junior Phil Poe (99 GB, 218-of-371 for 58.8 percent) win faceoffs just might be the push UMBC needs to shock some opponents next season.
