Retriever Alumni Update – August 13, 2009

The Major League Lacrosse regular season is in the books and UMBC alumni fared very well, while we’ll also check in with minor league baseball and the United Soccer League.

Major League Lacrosse

Former lax star Peet Poillon followed up his four-goal debut with another outstanding performance for the Washington Bayhawks. Poillon scored a hat trick, including the game-tying goal and the game winner with just three seconds to go to give the Bayhawks a 14-13 win last Thursday. With the win, the Bay hawks needed Chicago to defeat Long Island to secure a playoff spot, but Long Island won a 13-11 contest that saw Terry Kimener record a shot.

Poillon was named Rookie of the Week for the second consecutive week and finishes his rookie campaign with seven goals in two games. Kimener concludes the season with eight goals and five assists in 11 games played. For MLL’s release on Poillon, click here and for the Bayhawks’ release, click here.

Brendan Mundorf, Drew Westervelt and the Denver Outlaws had already clinched the No. 1 overall seed for the playoffs when they fell to the Toronto Nationals 16-10 on Saturday night in their regular season finale. Westervelt had three goals (one two-pointer) and two assists to finish with 46 points, third in MLL, while Mundorf had a goal and an assist to finish with 44 points.

Denver plays Boston in the first semifinal on Aug. 22 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. at noon. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 and ESPN360.com. Toronto faces Long Island in the second semifinal at 3 p.m. The New Balance Championship Game is the next day Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. on ESPN2 and ESPN360.com.

Eastern League – AA Minor League Baseball

Former UMBC ace Zack Clark saw action in two games this past week for Bowie. He allowed two runs in 2 and 1/3 innings on Sunday at Portland with four strikeouts before allowing one in two innings of work against New Hampshire last night. For the season, Clark is 1-1 with a 6.14 ERA in 11 appearances. He has 10 strikeouts in 22 innings of work.

United Soccer League – Division I

Brian Rowland earned his seventh shutout of the year in net for Crystal Palace FC USA as they tied the Harrisburg City Islanders 0-0 last Friday. Kevin Gnatiko came off the bench for CP, playing nine minutes. Crystal Palace’s final game of the season is Saturday at Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

 

As always, if you know of any former Retrievers playing in professional or semi-professional leagues around the world, please email tfenster@umbc.edu and we’ll start tracking them. Thanks for reading, hope your summer is going well.
