More on UA/Towson scrimmage:


"WOW, talk about a difference in size but not in heart. While the the Danes and Tigers don't necessarily have the same size and outright athleticism as the Penn State and Hopkins squads, they sure do aim to play as fast, or faster. This scrimmage felt more like a game than any other I attended. The teams pressed and played hard, the clock and full scoreboard were running the whole time, and there was even a nice comeback.


I only caught the end of the game, when Albany was trailing 8-9 I believe. But the Danes dominated on offense for the final stanza, scoring three to walk away the 11-10 winners.


The Thompsons are not to be triffled with. Miles made it look effortless working from X, frequently getting to GLE, and rolling his weight to shift his defenseman and create an angle to score. Be it a solid stick fake, a quick pass, or a well timed lean, this kid can figure out how to get points up.


Lyle is going to torment defenders this year (though he may start to pay the price when he gets up against bigger, nastier poles). He routinely took possessions behind, cradling and plotting his move. Once defenders started going for his stick, he would just flaunt his cradle almost, letting the defender whack him, the stick, whatever, almost to the point of taunting while not losing the ball. It worked well, as Lyle never did turn it over, drawing a few penalties instead. Doing it to maintain possession is one thing, but if a defender thinks Lyle is rubbing his nose in it, he is going to take a beating. You started to see that from the Towson poles who had had their fill." Zach Babo
