2011 Massachusetts Maritime Season Preview

GOALIE. The graduation of former standout netminder James Hitchings, who started all but two matches for Massachusetts Maritime over the last two seasons, leaves a void in the Buccaneer cage, but Deegan will look to three newcomers to step up into the starting role in freshmen Jack Murphy (Cohasset, Mass./Cohasset), Paul Painten (Walpole, Mass./Walpole) and Dan Bourque (Reading, Mass./Reading).

SCHEDULE. Deegan faces an early test in his inaugural campaign, as Massachusetts Maritime will play five of its first six matches away from Clean Harbors Stadium and eight of its first 10 matches overall through April 7th. In addition to Pilgrim League clashes with Wheaton, MIT, Clark, Babson and Springfield as well as the conference's newest upcoming member in Regis, the Buccaneers will square off in non-league play with the likes of Wentworth, Emerson and UMass Boston while also tangling with rivals New York Maritime in the Maritime Cup contest on March 19th and Maine Maritime in the Admiral's Cup clash a week later.

A new season and new challenges await a new head coach as the 2011 edition of Massachusetts Maritime men's lacrosse is ready to set sail, as the Buccaneers begin the Rory Deegan era on Tuesday, March 15th with a trip to Boston to take on Wentworth in a non-league match that begins at 7:00 p.m. EST.
