The Towson men’s lacrosse team will likely move out of the Maverik Inside Lacrosse media poll, and Johns Hopkins could drop within the Top 20 as well after last week’s results.

The Tigers, who are ranked No. 19, were upset, 12-10, by unranked Georgetown on Saturday, and their 1-2 record could persuade the panel of media members who vote in the poll to leapfrog other teams over Towson. The No. 14 Blue Jays could not hold off No. 12 North Carolina, losing, 13-11, on Friday, and they, too, could lose a couple of spots in the rankings.

Maryland might move up after top-ranked Duke was upended, 10-9, by Penn on Saturday. The same could be said for No. 10 Loyola Maryland after a 19-5 pummeling of Patriot League foe Lafayette.

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

Towson junior Alex Woodall became the first Division I player this season to win 20 faceoffs. Here is how he viewed his performance.

No. 3 Maryland

Record: 4-0

Previous result: Def. Penn, 13-6, on Wednesday

Note: Redshirt freshman Logan Wisnauskas’ five goals and redshirt senior goalkeeper Dan Morris’ 13 saves sparked the Terps, who made John Tillman the fastest coach in program history to reach 100 wins.

No. 10 Loyola Maryland

Record: 2-1, 1-0 in the Patriot League

Previous result: Def. Lafayette, 19-5, on Saturday

Note: The Greyhounds scored nine unanswered goals to close out the second quarter, and 14 different players found the net as Loyola opened conference play with a decisive victory.

A preseason scrimmage in which the Hoyas men’s lacrosse team battled 2017 national champion Maryland might have sparked the Hoyas’ 3-0 start in 2018.

No. 14 Johns Hopkins

Record: 1-2

Previous result: Lost to No. 12 North Carolina, 13-11, on Friday

Note: The Blue Jays finished with the edge in nearly every statistical category except saves and the scoreboard, but the Tar Heels collected their fifth consecutive victory at Homewood Field in Baltimore.

No. 19 Towson

Record: 1-2

Previous result: Lost to Georgetown, 12-10, on Saturday

Note: Despite being tied 9-9 after three quarters, the Tigers were outscored 3-1 in the final period and left with concerns about a defense that has given up at least 10 goals in each of its first three games.

Mount St. Mary’s

Record: 1-3

Previous result: Def. UMBC, 16-7, on Friday

Note: The starting attack of junior Chris DiPretoro, sophomore Brenden McCarthy and redshirt sophomore Stephano Mastro combined for 11 goals on 20 shots and seven assists to propel the Mountaineers to their first win of the season.

Navy

Record: 2-2, 1-0 in the Patriot League

Previous result: Def. Boston University, 10-8, on Saturday

Note: Junior midfielder Greyson Torain had a hand in the Midshipmen’s final three goals (scoring twice and assisting on one), and the defense kept the Terriers off the scoreboard for the final 19:43 in Navy’s conference opener.

UMBC

Record: 1-2

Previous result: Lost to Mount St. Mary’s, 16-7, on Friday

Note: Sophomore attackman Ryan Frawley scored a team-high three goals, but the Retrievers committed 19 turnovers and had seven failed clears as they dropped their second game in a row.
