Jared Bernhardt scored four goals and Logan Wisnauskas added three goals and two assists to lift the No. 3 Maryland men’s lacrosse team to an 11-6 win over visiting No. 16 Colgate on Tuesday. After winning their past two games by one goal each — 10-9 over Richmond and 13-12 over Penn in overtime — the Terps opened the game with four straight goals and led 9-3 at halftime to move to 4-0. Mike Hawkins scored two goals for the Raiders (2-1).
More men’s lacrosse: Richmond scored seven first-quarter goals to take command in a 17-12 victory over visiting UMBC. Sophomore attackman Trevor Patschorke (Severna Park) led the UMBC offense with a career-high four-goal, two-assist outing. It was his second career hat trick, giving him 15 goals in six career games. Junior attackman Brett McIntyre came off the bench and notched his first career three-goal game, and senior transfer Josh Jordan scored twice and added an assist for UMBC (0-2), which scored its most goals in a game since a 15-4 win over Mercer in February 2017. The Retrievers got off to a strong start as Patschorke and Jordan scored 24 seconds apart in the first 2:53 of play to take a quick 2-0 lead. After Richmond (1-1) responded with a pair of goals, Jordan scored to give the visitors a 3-2 lead with 9:12 to play in the first quarter. But Richmond answered with five consecutive goals to end the quarter and lead 7-3 after 15 minutes. The Spiders extended the run to seven before McIntyre halted the surge at the 3:06 mark of the second quarter. UMBC outshot Richmond 46-42 and won 20 of 33 faceoffs. Freshman faceoff specialist Brandon Galloway won 14 of 20 and collected a team-best six ground balls. UMBC will host Mount St. Mary’s on Saturday at 4 p.m.
US men’s soccer might play June friendly in D.C.
Audi Field was built primarily to house D.C. United, but the 20,000-seat soccer stadium was also designed to stage other events. And in what is its first major score outside of MLS, the venue has reached an agreement in principle to host a U.S. men’s national team friendly in June, multiple people familiar with the selection process said Tuesday. The opponent has not been secured yet by the U.S. Soccer Federation, which has scheduled games for June 4 or 5 and the 9th in the buildup to the Concacaf Gold Cup that begins June 15. The U.S. team’s opener is June 18 at the new MLS stadium in St. Paul, Minn. Cincinnati, which will have an expansion team in MLS this season, is the favorite to host the other U.S. friendly, said those sources, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Per policy, the USSF declined to comment on the venue search while negotiations continue, but a spokesman said the governing body is aiming to announce the choices in a few weeks. The U.S. men’s team last appeared in Washington in October 2016, a 1-1 draw with New Zealand at RFK Stadium. No venue in the country has hosted the men’s squad more than RFK, but with Audi Field’s opening last summer, the new venue has sought to attract international matches. RFK remains in the mix: On March 26, it will host a friendly between Peru and El Salvador. And FedEx Field in Landover will continue to appeal to large-scale matches, such as the annual International Champions Cup, featuring elite clubs from around the world.
