Post Game Quotes

Towson coach Tony Seaman's opening remarks:
"Congratulations to Maryland, that was a heck of a game. It is a horrible game to lose and believe me, I am an expert on that. I know how tough it is when you are in the NCAAs and you have to walk out and all of the sudden it is cold turkey and its over. They played a great game and everybody got their money's worth."

On his team's transition attack:
"We have been an up and down, fast break transition team. We live by it and we won by it today. We haven't been exactly impressive on our man-up all year and I think we scored either three or four man-up goals today."

Towson's Kyle Campbell on the game-winning goal:
"Even before (Ryan) Obloj caught the ball, my man already started to slide ... I knew once I caught the ball, I had the shot because the slide was not coming across the crease fast enough. I just changed it up since I have been shooting low all day and stuck it high and it went in."

Maryland coach Dick Edell's opening remarks:
"We started slowly and I don't know if it was the two-week layoff but we were not sharp to begin the game. We dug ourselves a little bit of a hole but I thought we did a great job of patiently playing ourselves back into the game. At winning time at the end of the game, we just didn't get it done and Towson did."

Coach Edell on trying to slow down Towson in the second half:
"We looked up on the scoreboard and they have eight goals and are on a 16-goal pace. At halftime, we were going to change our philosophy a little bit and try and change the tempo on our defensive end. We had to do something because we were not going to give up 16 goals and I think we played a better defensive game in the second half."

Maryland goalie Pat McGinnis on Towson's quick start:
"I think they have an explosive offense and give them credit, they came out fast and we came out a little slow."
