Odds and ends: Jon Blackwell, Steve Collura and Tyler Zahoruiko combined for 98 goals last spring. Last year was the Scarlet Knights' second straight 17-win season.

Coach Steve Connolly (10th year, 130-57): "I've got 12 kids with lots of ability in the midfield. A lot of our offense came from those three guys, so we'll get some scoring there. We're young and athletic, it's going to take a while to know each other. The sophomores are here for a reason, they all bring something to the table. The goalie is a three-way battle right now. All bring different strengths to the game."
