Halftime Notes, UMBC-Albany lacrosse semifinals

Albany scored four straight goals in the first quarter in less than two minutes and lead UMBC 6-4 after one half in the America East Conference Tournament semifinal.

Maxx Davis got the Retrievers on the board first with his goal less than three minutes into the game, but the Great Danes 4-0 run put UMBC in an early hole.

Chris Jones broke Albany's unanswered streak with 8:23 remaining in the first quarter and scored again with 3:32 remaining in the quarter. The second score gave Jones his first multiple goal game of the season.

Only three total goals were scored in the second quarter. Rob Grimm scored the only goal of the quarter for the Retrievers.

After winning only 20 percent of faceoffs on Saturday versus Hartford, UMBC has won 6-of-12 tonight.

Neither team has been particularly sharp when they've had the ball. Albany has 12 turnovers and the Retrievers has 10.

Goalkeeper Adam Cohen has saved only two shots tonight for UMBC. Albany's John Carroll has four saves.

The winner of this team will advance to the AEC Championship. Last night, Stony Brook defeated Vermont 10-6, so the winner of tonight's contest will travel to Long Island Saturday for the finale.
