UMBC waiting on goalie decision
Just two days away from opening the season at home against No. 20 Delaware, the No. 17 Retrievers are still reviewing the play of four players trying to become the starting goalkeeper.
Senior Kevin Kohri (Century), sophomores Brian McCullough and Matt Holman (Gilman) and freshman Adam Cohen (Severn) are competing for the right to succeed four-year starter Jeremy Blevins (Calvert Hall), and the team is willing to wait until Saturday before making a decision.
"It’s going to be an 11th-hour situation," coach Don Zimmerman said Thursday afternoon. "What really hurt us was the fact that we were indoors for a week. We just want to give these kids every opportunity to compete and show the coaches what they can do."
Zimmerman declined to handicap the competition, saying, "It’s definitely close. All four are still battling it out."
