No rest for Towson

The Tigers may have escaped Sunday with their first victory of the season, but that doesn't mean that coach Tony Seaman was entirely happy with what he saw.

For the second time in as many games, Towson began Sunday's contest against No. 20 Denver with a 3-0 deficit, matching the hole the Tigers dug themselves in against No. 14 Loyola on Feb. 23.

Unlike the game against the Greyhounds, Towson eventually rebounded and defeated the Pioneers, 10-9. As for the early deficits, Tigers coach Tony Seaman was at a loss for words.

"I haven't got an answer for you," he said. "We missed the shots that could've put us ahead, and then we turn the ball over. I think everyone was pretty tight [Sunday]. We knew we should've won last week, and we know we're supposed to beat Denver. You're a little tighter, gripping your stick a little tighter and throwing the ball away. We've got to handle that."

Added senior attackman Jonathan Engelke: "We couldn't shoot in the first quarter. I couldn't shoot in the first quarter. But we picked it up in the second half and got the 'W.' That's all that matters."

Finally, Seaman said he will continue using the arrangement of seniors Billy Sadtler and Matt Antol each getting a half against No. 5 Maryland on Saturday. Both players have registered nine saves, but Antol's goals against average is lower (10.0 to Sadtler's 12.0) and he was credited with Towson's win against Denver.

"They both did well today," Seaman said. "Neither one was great, but neither one was bad."

Hey Tony, sounds like the Tigers lacrosse team is playing Maryland Men's basketball - get a lead, turn the ballover, blow the lead and lose the game.

At least the Tigers beat Denver unlike the Men Terps loss to Clemson.
