Retriever Alumni Update – July 1, 2009

The Retriever Alumni Update is back as a former Retriever concludes the regular season down in Puerto Rico, and two former lax stars have been named Major League Lacrosse All-Stars.

Major League Lacrosse

Brendan Mundorf and Drew Westervelt have been named to the Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game. Both play for the Denver Outlaws, who have won six straight games. Mundorf leads the MLL in scoring with 30 points after scoring five in a 20-16 win over Toronto on the 27th. Westervelt is second in assists (13) and sixth in scoring (25) after posting a hat trick and an assist in the game against Toronto. Mundorf will represent the “Old School” side, while Westervelt will suit up for the “Young Guns” in the All-Star Game, which will be broadcast live on ESPN2 on July 16 at 6 p.m.

Terry Kimener and the Chicago Machine have dropped six straight after winning their season opener. Kimener scored in the Machine’s one-point loss to Long Island on the 20th and now has four goals and two assists in six games this season.

Baloncesto Superior Nacional

Former UMBC basketball star Ray Barbosa and Vaqueros de Bayamon finished the regular season 20-10 in the Baloncesto Superior Nacional. Barbosa had a very strong outing in the second-to-last game of the season against Guaynabo, where he scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds. He saw action in 16 games this season, scoring 54 points with 29 rebounds.

Bayamon is now in a six-game quarterfinal group section, where they defeated Carolina 90-81 on Tuesday night in the first game. Their next game is at Ponce on Thursday at 8 p.m.

United Soccer League – First Division

The Carolina RailHawks and former Dawg Matt Watson currently sit in fourth place after 14 games with a record of 7-4-3. Watson was named to the USL-1 Team of the Week for Week 11 after scoring the Railhawks long goal in a 1-1 draw against the Austin Aztex.

United Soccer League – Second Division

Crystal Palace USA with former UMBC star Brian Rowland in net are 1-1 in their last two games, having defeating Bermuda 2-1 on the 19th before falling to local rival Real Maryland 1-0 on Monday night. Kevin Gnatiko saw action in both games, coming off the bench. Rowland made four keys saves in the win over Bermuda, as CP now stands in a tie for third with Real Maryland with 18 points.
