NCAA Men’s Lacrosse: Denver Men’s Lacrosse 2011 Season Success Will Depend On Development Of Three New Starting Defensemen And Goaltending

 The Pioneers bid farewell to three starting defensemen in Dillon Roy, Nick Gradinger and Payton Sanders and goalkeeper Peter Lowell.

Denver’s continued reign as Eastern College Athletic Conference champion will likely depend on the development of a young defense.

Denver Men's Lacrosse Freshman Goalie Jamie Faus

Senior Jeff Brown and junior Brendan DeBlois are leading candidates to start, and seniors Jamie McDonald and Steve Simonetti, freshman Harley Brown and John Zurlo and sophomore Kyle Hercher are competing for the third starting role.

“It’s really interesting, and that’s certainly going to be the area where we’re going to get tested,” coach Bill Tierney said Tuesday. “We’ll find out how we hold up there because if we can hold up there, then we feel like we’re much improved at every other position.”

Tierney said freshman Jamie Faus is slightly ahead of junior Troy Orzech in the race to succeed Lowell in the net.

“Troy has a little bit more college experience. Jamie just has that thing that coaches talk about, the intangible that just makes you feel good when he’s in there,” Tierney said. “But I’ll tell you, Troy is right there with him as far as being a stopper. Jamie is a little more savvy with the ball, but we feel good about either one of them.”
