Game 12: Sat. 4/13 @ Towson @ 12

Post by MajBugman » Wed Apr 10, 2019 7:34 am

Everybody must be focused on hockey so I'll start this thread.

UMass tries to rebound, after an OT loss to Hofstra, against the 7-3 Tigers who are 3-1 at home and 2-0 in conference. Towson's three losses have come against really good teams (Cornell, Duke, Denver). This will be a tough one.

Should be low 60s and cloudy in Balmer, MD at game time. I'll be there.

Don't have one of those, but would Sal LoCascio's jock strap suffice? Don't @ me.

Unless the team changes its mindset, it will be a long afternoon for the Gorillas. Hope they snap out of it and destroy Towson.

5-1 good guys after 1. Taking it to em so far.

Good UMass crowd. It’s like being at a Sox/Os game at the Yards.

Edit.
10-2 at the half
12-3 after 3rd

Quite a turn around in the 4th. UMass can win a face off and Towson has scored 5 to UMass’ one.

UMass hangs on 14-10

I sure wouldn't describe it as "cruising" to a 14-10 win. It was freaking high anxiety. UMass seemed gassed and on their heels for most of the 4th.

This team has the talent to be dominant. They seem to suffer major lapses in every big game they play. If they fix that problem, they could make some noise.

For the first three periods, the faceoffs were even. In the 4th, Towson won 9 of 10. UMASS was sloppy again with 16 turnovers compared to 8 for Towson. The difference really was Sconone and the D which really limited Townson from many good shots until the 4th quarter. Heat/conditioning may have been a factor but their FOGO was a beast. If UMASS meets Towson again in the playoffs UMASS had better cut down on its sloppiness because that FOGO guy can turn any game into a route. Great win for the Gorillas and a nice bounce back from the Hofstra debacle.
