Senior striker Darius Madison has fit like a glove with his new team at UMBC, already scoring the winning goal in three of the Retrievers four wins through the first month of the season.
The Philadelphia native started his team down the comeback trail on Tuesday night with his goal just before halftime that cut George Washington's lead in half and then stepped up to deliver the game-winning penalty kick in the 68 minute.
The goal was the fifth of the season to go with one assist for Madison, who was a late transfer from Virginia, and the 17th of his college career.
When your last name is Storm, the headline pretty much writes itself when you have a big game like North Carolina junior defender Colton Storm had on Friday night. The Mechanicsburg native delivered a goal and two assists to lead the Tar Heels to a 4-2 win over then No. 2 Notre Dame. The points were the first of the season for Storm, who has started and played at least 75 minutes in all seven of the Tar Heels' games this year after struggling his first two seasons in Chapel Hill with injuries.
Other goals, assists
Louisville senior Shane Campbell field time has been limited this season because of injury, but he made the most of his second appearance of the season against Virginia Tech last Friday night. Down a man to a red card and another to injury, Campbell came off the bench and contributed on both sides of the field with a goal from a tight angle to tie it up late and was strong defensively to keep the Hokies from finding a winner in the two 10-minute overtime periods.
Brian White scored his second goal of the season for Duke in a 2-1 loss to Clemson on Friday. Doyle Tuvesson also scored his second of the season with a goal and an assist in Lehigh's 3-2 win over Robert Morris on Friday night. Kyle Bitterman scored his first of the season for Fordham in a 3-2 win over Fairfield on Saturday to round out the goal scorers from the past week.
Brett Campbell and Melvin Snoh both contributed to the suddenly revitalized Georgetown offense (13 goals in their last four games after scoring just 3 goals in the first three). Snoh recorded an assist as a substitute in the Hoyas 2-2 draw with VCU on Thursday and Campbell picked up an assist in a 3-1 win over West Virginia on Sunday.
Duquesne goalkeeper Sam Frymier recorded two clean sheets over the weekend. The senior made seven saves in a scoreless draw with Cornell on Friday and a pair of saves in a 1-0 win over Colgate on Sunday. The two shutouts give him 16 in 56 starts over his career.
James Madison junior goalkeeper Kyle Morton recorded his first clean sheet of the season in a 2-0 win over VMI on Tuesday. It was the 12th of his career in 40 games.
