We didn’t know what to expect as coaches. We know they didn’t know what to expect as players, so we wanted to come out here and compete and know that when we finished the first scrimmage, we played hard,” head coach Dan Chemotti said told Inside Lacrosse.
Other games saw Loyola top Georgetown 15-8, and team USA got into the action with the blue team topping Towson 26-4 and the white team defeating Loyola 17-6.
Towson was without their star Thomas DeNapoli and they struggled on offense in both of their games, especially against team USA with just four goals. Ryan Adler, their new starting goalie, played well against Richmond but struggled very much against USA.
Zach Herreweyers scored a hat trick for Loyola as he will be the offensive leader for the Greyhounds this season. For Georgetown, Reilly O’Connor stood out as always and he helped replace the production of the injured Jeff Fountain.
This event was also supposed to have Air Force involved but it did not due to the government shutdown. The event benefits ProjectSpark to fight Parkinson’s.
