2021 UAlbany MLAX Next Up 2021 UAlbany MLAX vs UMBC at John Fallon Field Sunday 04-11-2021

Recommended Posts

For the few who care I will add my post game assessment. Trying not to repeat the formal and news reports, I do feel compelled to mention Scotts comment on UA's SLOW starts. UA is very young overall. Even though they do have some excellent upper class leaders, sometimes it takes time for the players to get on the same page and ALSO to  figure out what the opponent is doing and how to respond. With no fall ball, late start due to covid & WEATHER, personnel issues and what seems as a constantly changing line up, UA is very much still a work in progress. Of course, to some degree or another all teams, more so in the northeast have these issues. 

So getting back to the game, early JITTERS definitely seemed an issue. UMBC is noted for their defense and VERY deliberate offense {have I commented before on how much I hate the shot clock and how it has NOT done what it was designed to do:wacko:.}  UA actually IMHO did well overcoming both UMBC O & D; obviously in the 4th, but really most of the game. A couple UA mistakes/ jitters and a couple unfortunate bad bounces and this game really would not have been as close as it was and UA put it all together in the 4th.

UA got contributions from many and as Scott mentioned 13 assists out of 14 goals; continues to be a strength of this team. Might be time to shrink the playing rotation a little? Seems like McComber having issues staying on his feet and holding onto the ball; Ramirez seems to run around pointlessly; Seneca seems hesitant to even hold on to the ball for more than a fraction of a second. Just some observations, NOT recommending anything. Do think Cam Hay needs more playing time {even though he may be still in injury recovery mode) and think Logan Tucker need more playing time.
