Steven Boyle – Assistant Men’s Lacrosse Coach – Men’s Lacrosse CoachesSteven Boyle joined the men’s lacrosse staff in the summer of 2014. A former standout player at Johns Hopkins, Boyle came to Drexel after serving as an assistant at Brown for the previous three seasons.
Boyle serves as the team’s offensive coordinator. The Derry, New Hampshire native was the offensive coordinator at Brown where he assisted with the development of the Bears’ attackmen and midfielders while at Brown. Prior to his arrival at Brown, Boyle was the offensive coordinator at St. Paul’s School for Boys in Baltimore.
The Drexel offense has been a key factor in the Dragons reaching the CAA Championship game the last two seasons and reaching the NCAA Tournament in 2021 for the first time since 2014. Boyle’s group scored at least 10 goals in all but one regular-season game and led the CAA with 13.62 goals per contest, which tied for 12th in the nation with Syracuse and Bryant.
Boyle’s offensive unit led the CAA in scoring during the 2019 season and finished 13th in the nation with more than 13 goals per game. Drexel’s man-up unit scored 39 goals, the most in the nation, one more than Penn State. The team also had a .473 extra-man percentage, which was fourth in all of Division I. Three of Drexel’s offensive players were named to All-CAA teams in 2019. In 2018, the Dragons also scored more than 10 goals per game and led the CAA in shooting percentage (.315). The previous season, Drexel’s man-up unit led the CAA and finished 13th in the nation.
Boyle graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2010 with a degree in political science. He was a member of the 2007 NCAA Championship team and was awarded the Bob Scott Award given to the school’s top freshman. A three-time All-American, Boyle led the team in scoring as a senior with 32 goals, 23 assists and 55 points. The team’s Outstanding Attackman Award winner in 2009 and 2010, Boyle finished his career with 95 goals, 69 assists and 164 points. He was selected 12th overall in the 2010 Major League Lacrosse Draft by the Boston Cannons and played in the league until 2015.

Save the Date
A year after getting swept by the Nittany Lions — a 20-9 regular-season rout and an 18-17 overtime classic in the Big Ten title game — the Blue Jays could be primed to go toe-to-toe again with Penn State at Homewood Field. A victory could carry large NCAA tournament implications for Hopkins.
Defensive Woes Prompt Petro to Blow Up Depth Chart
After watching the Blue Jays suffer through one of their more unsatisfying seasons on defense in 2019, Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala decided to send many of his freshmen, sophomores and juniors home for the summer with a declaration to ponder.
Upon their return to Homewood for the start of the fall semester, not a midfield, close defense or goalie job was secure for 2020. The fall season and beyond would redefine the meaning of competition for older players and underclassmen alike.
“From the middle of the field on down [to the goalie], not one person’s job was safe when they came back,” Pietramala said. “The fall, the winter and the preseason would be used [for coaches] to come to the conclusion as to which guys would give us the best chance to do the things we expect a Hopkins defense to do.”
“And we have followed suit,” he added. “During the fall, not one group at any position started one drill together and stayed together the next. We kept things as competitive as they could be. Some guys were getting more runs in practice in a day than they’ve gotten in the past over a week. We want to breed competition every single day.”
By the time the Blue Jays had finished 8-8 last year — narrowly avoiding their second losing season in 19 seasons under Pietramala — the head coach had made up his mind.
The Blue Jays had allowed 13 goals per game, among the highest in the nation. In six of their defeats, they surrendered at least 16 scores. In the end, Hopkins negated the production of a solid offense that averaged just over 12 goals.
Pietramala said the problems boiled down to poor communication, lack of trust, slow reactions, inability to read offensive players’ eyes and body language with confidence — all of the things that create too many good looks at your net.
So the fall took on a whole new flavor, with the defense and its rotations and supposed depth chart.
“There was constant shuffling in all of the position groups. We changed the combinations in every drill, at every practice, every week,” Pietramala said. “We started our third goalie in our Penn scrimmage. We did that kind of thing with a bunch of guys.”
“Normally, the [depth chart] writing would be on the wall by now, but I don’t know that to be the case with anyone on our defensive roster,” he added. “What I do know is we are building good depth and everyone is fully engaged. And we’re going to be a better defense for it.”

Joey Epstein, A, So.
As a first-team conference choice and Big Ten Rookie of the Year, Epstein set records for a Hopkins freshman with 48 goals and 73 points, easily team highs. A third-team USILA All-American, he also was the school’s first freshman attackman to earn an All-America nod since Steven Boyle in 2007.
Ryan Darby, G, Jr.
In a season to forget for the Hopkins defense, there were plenty of breakdowns in communication and coverage, plenty of high-percentage looks for opposing shooters. But Darby, who emerged from the fall in a fight for his spot with senior Jacob Giacalone, must be a better stopper in 2020.
The Blue Jays have made an effort to get bigger on defense and at midfield, and the raw numbers at Homewood say that is happening. The number of midfielders and defensemen measuring at least 6-foot-2, 200 pounds has reached 11. Nine of them are underclassmen.
“Hopkins had an up-and-down year that was highlighted by back-to-back wins over rival Maryland. They have enough returning to be a top-tier team but will need better than 45 percent in goal to get to where they want to be.”

Lacrosse: Irish to open NCAA Championships against Drexel
#4 ranked/#6 seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish men’s lacrosse (7-3) will open their NCAA Championship effort against the #9/#10 ranked/unseeded CAA Champion Drexel Dragons (10-2). The game will be hosted by the Denver Pioneers at Peter Barton Stadium, 5:00 pm EDT, ESPNU.
Not unexpectedly, North Carolina was seeded #1, followed by Duke and Maryland. The shock came with Notre Dame’s #6 seed, far lower than projected by anyone. The team has every reason to feel slighted about it.
The slight is justified in the reason given by the committee, that Notre Dame didn’t play anyone good out of conference. It appears to be a standard unequally applied. We suspect the truth is more that the committee needed to send the Irish out west to adhere to the long-standing tournament travel rule and came up with a reason to justify it. Regardless of seeding, the Irish are still playing one of the opponents the were projected to play.
More importantly, the seeding will result in Notre Dame playing at home in the quarterfinals should they beat Drexel. That’s not a bad consolation prize.
This is the fifth all-time meeting against the Dragons, with the Irish holding a 4-1 record. The only loss was at Drexel in 2010, when the Irish fell in overtime. The teams last played in 2012, with the Irish squeaking by 6-5, also played in Philadelphia.
Drexel comes into the came hot and on a 9-game win streak, including a win in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament this weekend. That win earned them the conference’s automatic qualifying berth in the NCAA tournament.
The Dragons only have one common opponent, Robert Morris, who they beat 19-13 (compared to Irish win, 19-7). They have had a successful season which includes wins over ranked UMass, Delaware and Hofstra.
Their coaching staff is led by Johns Hopkins legend Brian Voelker, who is assisted by Steven Boyle and former Schmeisser Award winner and current member of the PLL’s Atlas, Tucker Durkin.
Drexel, on paper, is unusual in that their scoring isn’t particularly deep, but what they have is very prolific. Players like Sean Donnelly (25g, 19a) and Aidan Coll (32g, 11a) score a ton of goals. Canadian grad student Reid Bowering has been on fire since his return from injury, scoring over 4 points a game in his last 5.
Jimmeh Koita is their primary faceoff specialist. He hovers around 50%, but he is a very big guy weighing 215 lbs. That sort of size will require both Gallagher and Leonard to produce equally to avoid getting worn down.
On the defensive end, #17 SSDM George Grippo is a player to watch. He’s good on defense and is very effective getting the ball forward in transition.
Stylistically, they play good defense, and on offense seem to use a lot of pass-down picks and other plays to activate their off-ball strengths. Not altogether different than many of the teams the Irish played at the beginning of the season.
Where we are most impressed with them, in the games we watched, they did a great job of trapping midfielders and in an instant breaking out in transition. The Irish will need to be disciplined in the middle of the field.
Drexel is a good team that has well earned its #9/#10 rank. They are dangerous and can beat the Irish if they don’t show up ready to play. But we have to be careful not to overthink this. The Irish simply have to play like they have in any of their games to date. Meaning no disrespect to the Dragons, the Irish are a deeper, faster and bigger team. If the boys play to their strengths, all will be fine.
To see if this is happening, we’ll observe:
- Faceoff percentage: Notre Dame can’t let Koita play them to a draw. They need a firm possession advantage.
- Fast start: The Irish have been off for two weeks and are coming off exams, so there is some risk of sleepwalking. They’ll need to concentrate on taking command early.
- Slow down transition: We have every confidence the defense can win a 6-on-6 battle. The key is to make sure transition attempts are slowed and the Dragons are reduced to a half-field offense.
- 13 goals: This is the border between being worried and being more relaxed, as it has been all season. The Drexel defense doesn’t give up goals cheaply, so it will be on the offense to keep up the pressure to get the team quickly to this total. If they can do that, we’ll feel good about their chances. If they struggle to score, we’ll worry to the buzzer regardless of how well the defense is playing.
- Altitude: Denver is hosting the game. With neither team coming from altitude, fitness will be an issue. The Irish depth needs to shine.
It’s tournament time. Just survive and advance.
NCAA Party Pooper
This week the NCAA announced it will only permit a travel and sideline squad of 45 people, which to our understanding includes coaches and staff. This is a real bummer, as it would seem to require 20+ boys to stay home this weekend. It has been heartbreaking reading of the disappointment of the players on social media.
Considering this news came only hours before CDC guidance was changed to permit maskless contact without distancing for vaccinated persons, we are very disappointed for those students affected. As of this writing, the CDC change does not appear to have resulted in any travel rule change.
To those players who are impacted by this rule and their families: Please understand and know that we here at 18 Stripes, and the entire Notre Dame lacrosse fan community, recognize your contribution to the team. We know you earned the right to compete in this championship with your teammates. Notre Dame men’s lacrosse would not be in this position if not for the contributions of each of the 56 student athletes.
2 fields in sight, but football first for now
DERRY, N.H. — The thought, no matter how fleeting, weighed on Steve Boyle as the summer approached.
One of the top lacrosse attackmen in the country, Boyle had verbally committed to eight-time national champion Johns Hopkins University in January. And with football practice commencing in August, Boyle couldn’t help but wonder whether it was worth risking injury to return to the gridiron for his senior campaign at Pinkerton Academy.
Not only did Boyle receive a vote of confidence from Johns Hopkins’s head coach Dave Pietramala, but he also got the OK from his high school lacrosse coach. Which meant he simply couldn’t tell the football coach no.
”We didn’t have a conversation, but there really wasn’t a doubt in my mind he’d play this year,” said Brian O’Reilly, who is both the football and lacrosse coach at Pinkerton. ”Besides, I don’t think the Pinkerton lacrosse coach would have been very happy if he didn’t play football.”
With a healthy Boyle leading the charge, the Astros posted an 8-2 mark during the regular season and are headed to the state football playoffs this weekend.
Regardless of the outcome, Boyle will officially sign his national letter of intent to attend Johns Hopkins at a ceremony Monday afternoon in the Pinkerton Alumni Center. It’s the final step in accepting a full scholarship from the school that won the NCAA Division 1 national title last year.
”I think playing football really helps you with your toughness on the lacrosse field,” said Boyle, a Derry, N.H., native whose older brother, Brian, plays lacrosse at Penn State.
”I’ve thought a lot about playing at the college level for Hopkins and I know it’s going to take a lot of hard work if I want to go in and make an immediate impact. But right now there’s a lot of hard work to do at Pinkerton.”
That work starts Saturday afternoon when Derry, N.H.-based Pinkerton hosts Manchester Central in the opening round of New Hampshire’s Division 1 playoffs. The winner advances to next week’s championship game to meet the winner of Saturday’s other semifinal between Manchester West and Salem.
After losing to Manchester Central in last year’s championship game, the Astros are hungry for revenge. But what’s remarkable is that Pinkerton is even in the playoffs in what most deemed a rebuilding year.
Even with Boyle’s decision to return, Pinkerton brought back just three starters overall and just one on defense. The Astros took motivation from the rumors of their demise and stormed to an 8-1 mark before falling to Brockton — the defending Eastern Mass. Division 1 Super Bowl champion and the Globe’s top-ranked team — in a turnover-plagued, 35-10 loss this past Saturday.
”I would be disappointed if we didn’t win the championship now,” said O’Reilly. ”All the teams in the playoffs are teams we’ve beaten this season and if you beat someone the first time, but don’t the second time, that’s disappointing. There’s no moral victory here for just making it to the championship round.”
Boyle spearheads the defense from his safety position. The 6-foot, 185-pound speedster has already tied the school record with 10 interceptions this season, returning four of those for touchdowns.
Offensively, Boyle is the starting tailback behind senior fullback John Sughrue. The pair provides a little bit of thunder and lightning, with Boyle being a shifty runner prone to ripping off 25-yard dashes and Sughrue the workhorse that piles up yardage in smaller chunks.
Sughrue, also a long-stick midfielder on the lacrosse team, knows Boyle’s first love is lacrosse, but he’s keeping Boyle focused on the gridiron.
”We play in an indoor lacrosse league in the winter that’s getting ready to start up,” said Sughrue, a Freemont, N.H., resident and a senior captain for the football squad. ”I make sure Steve and the guys are focused on football. Even if I have to slap them around a bit.”
Sughrue admits it’s hard not to look ahead to the spring with so many lacrosse players on the football roster. Despite overwhelming success the past three seasons, the Astros lacrosse team doesn’t boast a championship trophy to show for it.
”That championship is our motivation this year,” said Boyle. ”This is our last chance and we’ve been so close over the past three years. We want that title.”
Boyle’s father, Gary, was an assistant football coach with O’Reilly in the late ’70s, so O’Reilly has literally watched Boyle grow. By the sixth grade, with his brother Brian already making waves as a freshman, O’Reilly knew the younger Boyle was destined for big things.
Steve Boyle registered 52 goals and 53 assists as a sophomore on the lacrosse team while guiding his squad to a 19-1 mark and earning the state’s player-of-the-year award. He garnered that award again last season after posting 75 goals and 61 assists while leading the Astros to an 18-2 record.
With 302 career points (152 goals, 150 assists), Boyle is 132 points shy of his brother’s school scoring record of 435 points (222 goals, 213 assists).
”If he stays healthy and posts numbers like he did last year, he’ll break the record,” said O’Reilly. ”But I don’t think being second to his brother would bother him much.”
Indeed, Boyle says sharing the lacrosse field with his brother as a freshman remains his favorite high school memory (there’s the slight chance the two could see each other in a college playoff game in 2007 as well).
But Boyle simply refuses to let his team finished runner-up to another squad in the quest for a state title.
”Steve’s got that monkey on his back, but we’re going on safari,” said Sughrue, who has assigned roles based on player nicknames and college mascots. ”Steve’s the blue jay, I’m the lion, and [senior attackman] Chris [Guilherme] is the rhino. We’re going to get that monkey.”

Notable events of the next night in the NHL.
Pittsburgh were stronger than Washington (4: 3) in the first match of these rivals of the season. Danish striker “Metropolitan” Lars Eller opened the scoring in the 11th minute, but by the end of the 32nd “Pittsburgh” were already in the lead with a score of 3: 1. On the 46th, Evgeny Kuznetsov reduced the gap to a minimum, but the exchange of goalscoring shots at the 58th minute with an interval of 15 seconds recorded the final minimum advantage of the “penguins”.
Alexander Ovechkin lost goals for the first time in six games, Washington defender Dmitry Orlov played his 500th career match.The winning streak of the Capitals goalkeeper Ilya Samsonov was interrupted at around 11 matches.
Pittsburgh leader Sidney Crosby also lost goals, but scored an assist, gaining 12th point in seven games after surgery.
Following the results of 50 matches of the confrontation of the great forwards, Ovechkin has an obvious advantage in goals (31-24), but on winning goals the score is 2-1 in favor of Crosby. In assists, Sid leads more than twice: 47-21, and on points the Canadian is ahead of 71-52.But in terms of points, the majority of Russians have a small advantage: 14-11, the official website notes. NHL.
If we include 25 playoff matches in this standings, the proportions shift slightly: 45-37 in favor of Ovechkin in goals, 64-39 and 101-84 in favor of Crosby in assists and points, respectively.
As for the team rivalry in the era of Crosby and Ovechkin, out of fifty face-to-face meetings, the “penguins” won 31, and lost only 17 with 2 defeats in overtime.The corresponding figure for Washington is a modest 19-24-7.
Meanwhile, Ovechkin, who has scored 11 times in the previous five meetings, has five goals left to reach 700 goals in his career.
This fascinating match was not without curiosities. So, the forward of “Washington” Evgeny Kuznetsov , noticing that six players of the team were on the ice at once, tried to quickly leave the area. To do this, he rushed to the Pittsburgh bench and even climbed over the side, but his rivals pushed him out of there.And the judges did not miss this episode and, as a result, punished the owners for violating the numerical strength.
To try and avoid a too many men on the ice penalty, Evgeny Kuznetsov tried to hide in the Penguin bench. pic.twitter.com/FQneyyKPBW– NHL on NBC (@NHLonNBCSports) February 2, 2020
Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby appreciated the Ural’s ingenuity.
– He tried to climb on our bench? This is a smart decision.We must give him his due. If you can’t get on your bench, you can try to climb on someone else’s, – quotes “Championship” player citing journalist Stephen Wine.
There was an emotional episode involving Sidney Crosby. Sitting on the bench, the Pittsburgh captain grabbed the stick of Washington forward TJ Oshi , who fought Penguin forward Anthony Angello near the side. For this, Crosby received a small fine.
19-year-old Carolina striker Andrey Svechnikov , who went down in NHL history as the author of the first lacrosse goal (and then he scored the second one) is the second scorer and sniper of his team. In the match with Vancouver, he scored another spectacular puck, which not only helped the hurricanes win, but also brought its author $ 212,000. The fact is that she became the 20th of the season for the young Russian, he scored the same amount for the entire debut season.Until the end of this year, there are still 30 matches, and Svechnikov may well complete it with 30 goals.
Svechnikov has a newcomer contract, the salary of which is 925 thousand dollars a year. But in addition to the salary, he can earn special bonuses, which in theory could be even higher than the salary – 2.65 million. In reality, getting to such a sum is almost impossible, but with the help of bonuses for the number of goals and points, you can significantly increase the salary. For example, for the fact that a player scored at least 20 goals, the Russian’s contract stipulates an incentive of $ 212.5 thousand – this is almost a quarter of the salary, “Championship” notes.
For his magnificent goal, Svechnikov was recognized as the first star of the match against Vancouver, although Canucks striker Elias Pettersson tried very hard to prevent the opponent from winning, having issued a double and equalized the score in the third period, scoring on shootouts. But everything was decided by seasoned veteran Justin Williams , who just recently returned to hockey after a six-month break in his career and has already won two series of post-match throws for the “hurricanes”. And his “Carolina” returned to the playoff zone.
Carolina’s victory would have been impossible without such selfless fighters as defender Brett Pesci , who blocked Oscar Fantenberg’s shot in the second period. At the same time, the puck cut the player’s hand, and the ice was covered with blood. Pesci left the site, but only to provide him with emergency assistance. In the third period, he returned and finished the match. His ice time in this meeting is 23 minutes 5 seconds.
