Live Blog: Provident Pride - Third-Place Game

I'll be live-blogging today's 4:30 p.m. Provident Pride of Maryland Tournament third-place game as the Shoremen take on Eastern Shore rival Salisbury. A win would give the Shoremen their highest finish yet in the four-year old tournament. (Washington was fourth in 2005, sat out the tournament in 2006, and finished seventh in 2007.)

The Shoremen won their opening-round game against Stevenson before falling to St. Mary's, 88-60, in a semifinal last night. Salisbury beat Goucher in the tournament's first round before losing to Johns Hopkins, 54-47, in a semifinal yesterday evening.

Come back at 4:15 for the live blog below.

Live Blog: Provident Pride Semifinal

After defeating Stevenson, 89-76, in the first round of the tournament Tuesday, the Washington College men's basketball team continues its quest for its first Provident Pride of Maryland Championship this weekend at Stevenson. I'll be live-blogging all of the action from Saturday night's 8:00 pm semifinal against St. Mary's as well as from Sunday's championship (hopefully) or third-place game against Johns Hopkins or Salisbury.

The Shoremen got 18 points and nine rebounds from senior Tim Kohlrus in Tuesday's win and double-digit scoring performances off the bench from freshmen Adam Naymick and Kevin Breslin. The Seahawks had two players score at least 20 points - senior Alex Irmer and junior Camontae Griffin - in their first-round win over McDaniel Tuesday.

Live Women's Basketball Blog: Washington-St. Mary's (MD)

On Friday night (11/21), I will be blogging from the Athletics & Recreation Center Arena on the campus of St. Mary's (MD) in St. Mary's City, MD for the women's basketball season opener between the Shorewomen and the Seahawks.

The two teams have met seven times with St. Mary's leading 5-2, but have not met since the 1999-2000 season. The Shorewomen played the Seahawks in each of their first seven seasons of women's hoops at WC. Washington won 69-61 in the 1994-95 season and 70-60 in the 1997-98 campaign. St. Mary's won the first meeting in 1993-94, the inaugural season of women's hoops at WC, 52-49.

St. Mary's is 1-2, playing all three games at home. They beat Ramapo, while losing to Susquehanna and Catholic. Allie Scott is averaging 19.3 points per game to lead the Seahawks.

Washington is playing its season opener and returns three starters, senior Brianne Slizofski and juniors Jessica Jamrogowicz and Jane O'Donnell.

Come back around 6:45 pm on Friday night (11/21) to follow the action on the blog.

Live Men's Soccer Blog: Washington-Johns Hopkins

Tonight, I will be blogging from Homewood Field in Baltimore, the home of the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays for the men's soccer finale with Johns Hopkins.

The two teams have played every year since 1946 with Hopkins leading the all-time series 40-22-2. The Blue Jays are the lone team that the Shoremen have played every year since the beginning of the men's soccer program here at Washington in 1946.

Hopkins has won the last 15 meetings since a 5-2 Washington win in 1992. The Shoremen have lost the last five by one goal. Johns Hopkins downed Washington in the season finale a year ago, 2-1, in Chestertown. Frank Borelli scored a magnificent goal from Tony Armiger and Brian Schultz. Armiger played the ball from the left corner to Schultz at the top of the 18 and Schultz headed it to Borelli who running down the right side blasted a ball into the lower left corner.

Come back around 6:45 pm to follow the match on the blog.

Live Field Hockey Blog: Washington-Haverford

Tomorrow I will be blogging from the Washington-Haverford field hockey contest up on the Main Line beginning at 3:45 pm for the 4 pm tilt. This game has major implications on who will make the Centennial Conference Field Hockey Tournament. The Shorewomen are currently 9-4 overall and 4-3 in the Centennial, while the host Fords are 7-7 and 3-3 respectively. Currently, 1 1/2 games separates 3rd place from 8th place as you have Gettysburg, McDaniel and Dickinson at 4-2, Washington at 4-3, Haverford at 3-3 and Muhlenberg at 3-4. The Shorewomen currently own the tiebreakers on McDaniel and Muhlenberg, while the Fords own the tiebreak over Muhlenberg.

Washington is led by sophomore Danielle Rosato who has eight goals and three assists for 19 points. Seniors Amy Spadanuta and Jaimie Barlow each have tallied five goals. Senior Candace Gaull and junior Kristin Birscak have each netted four goals. Sophomore Sara Rutkowski leads all players with six assists. In goal, Elena Nicholoff leads the conference in save percentage (.866), second in shutouts, shutouts per game and goals against average and is tied for second in saver per game. The Shorewomen have outscored their foes by a 28-16 margin. Haverford is led by Josie Ferri who has 11 goals and six assists for 28 points, while Margaret Selsor has 11 goals and two helpers for 24 points. Ferri and Selsor are tied for the team lead in goals and have scored 22 of the 35 Ford goals in 2008. Alex Waleko has added seven goals, while Roxanne Jaffe has a team-best eight assists. The Fords have been outscored 42-35 this season. Haverford's backstop, Maggie Cronin is third in the conference in shutouts per game and fourth in saves per game.

Washington and Haverford began the rivalry in 1987 and has been played annually since with the Shorewomen holding a 12-7-2 all-time series lead. Washington won the inaguaral meeting 21 years ago by a 2-1 score. The Shorewomen won 10 in a row from 1996-2005, but the Fords have grabbed the last two victories. Haverford won 3-2 in 2006 and a 7-5 shootout last year that was the highest combined goal total in the 21 meetings. It was the sixth time that the Shorewomen had netted five goals against the Fords.

The live blog will be activated around 3:45 pm tomorrow.

Live Blog: Field Hockey @ #6 Johns Hopkins

The Washington College field hockey team heads to Baltimore Saturday for arguably the biggest game it has played since the Centennial Conference First Round Playoff game in 2004. The Shorewomen, off to their best start ever at 9-1 overall, take on sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins, 11-1 overall. Both teams carry 4-0 records in Centennial Conference play into the game. The contest will also feature both the reigning Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week, Hopkins senior attack Emily Miller, and the reigning Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week, Washington senior defender Cora Jo Spare. Spare, junior goalkeeper Elena Nicholoff (who leads the conference in both save percentage and goals-against average), and the rest of the conference's top-ranked defense, will try to shut down Miller, the conference's leading scorer, and the rest of the Blue Jays' high-powered offense.

I will be live-blogging Saturday's game below; it should be active around 15 minutes before game time. You can also follow the game via Johns Hopkins' GameTracker

Washington-Stevenson Men's Soccer Primer

Today the men's soccer will be the first Washington College team to play in the 2008-09 academic year as they travel to suburban Baltimore to play Stevenson University, formerly Villa Julie College.

The Shoremen lead the all-time series against the Mustangs (nickname has not changed unlike the name of the institution), 5-2. The Shoremen won from 1996-98 and 2002-03, while the Mustangs won in 2001 and 2005. The last meeting was in 2005 was a 1-0 victory for then Villa Julie.

WC has won both of its openers under the guidance of third year head coach Drew Hoffman. In 2006, the Shoremen downed Chestnut Hill, 4-3, in Chestertown, while downing Alfred in 2007 at Lycoming by a score of 1-0.

Weather permitting today will be the debut of the live blog and here is the link:

15-11 Salisbury, Final

The Sea Gulls outscore the Shoremen 4-2 in the fourth quarter to win 15-11 and win the 2008 edition of War on the Shore. This is Salisbury's 8th straight victory over WC. Salisbury keeps the Charles B. Clark Cup.

Like to thank Sam Atkinson and his student staff for all their help today. Much appreciated.

Great atmosphere today here in Salisbury.

The Shoremen return to the field next Friday in Gettysburg against Haverford in the Centennial Conference semifinals.

15-11 Salisbury, 2:55 4th

On a delayed WC penalty, Salisbury worked the ball and clock and Hickman caught pass from Berkman on the left side and put it past Cohen. Since the penalty was 30 seconds, it was waived off.

The Shoremen call a timeout.

14-11 Salisbury, 6:07 4th

Bruce Richardson picked up a loose ball at midfield and ran about 40 yards to the goal and put it past Cohen on the upper left side.

The goal was following a scrum by both teams trying to grab the loose ball.

13-11 Salisbury, 6:56 4th

Nick Gregory pumps his first goal of the day as he drove from the left side and put it into the upper right corner.

Salisbury won the faceoff and had a chance for a rush, but the ball got stripped off the stick of Ryan Brown by a WC defender before he could shoot.

13-10 Salisbury, 8:54 4th

DeLillo takes a pass from Berkman and beats Cohen on a shot driving to the goal.
