Couple of additional notes on Lehigh and PSU scrimmages


Lehigh looks like a potential top 20 team, and definitely should be in the mix to win the Patriot League. Their starting FO Sisselberger is one of the best in the game now. They look solid in goal (despite the score) and Spence made some big saves for them on very good looks for UVA. Kirst is a handful at attack and Schelling looked good too.

Hard to know what to make of PSU. Last year pretty much all of their seniors returned for the extra COVID year other than Ament, and I think a bunch of long term starters graduated. Looked to me like guys you’d expect to be their starters played vs the Hoos yesterday (for example Haus, Birch, Kelly, and Fyock), at least early on. But Tambroni also seemed to play pretty deep into his roster vs. the Hoos.

Looked to me like Hoos ran seven guys on offensive midfield vs. Lehigh - Conner, Dickson, Simmons, McIntosh, Quinn, Schutz, and Kumar. McIntosh had some nice looks but didn’t score in the game. He gets the ball out of his stick quickly; looks like he’s got good potential, and it’ll be interesting to see how he develops. Offensive midfield is definitely better with Garno in the mix. Vs PSU Hoos ran Quinn, Simmons Kumar, and Walshe, at midfield, and a handful of other guys got time at both attack and midfield, like Mencke, McIntosh, and Mullen.

At SSDM, it looked to me like top two were Sallade and Parker, and coaches were pairing Chizmar and Izlar with those two during the first half against Lehigh. Inderlied got some PT vs Lehigh too. Didn’t look to me like Chizmar is our No. 2 SSDM at this point, but he’s definitely in consideration for a role at the position. He’s got some grit to his game and reminded me of Peele. At this point looks like Hoos have seven players in SSDM roles - Sallade, Parker, Brennfleck, Izlar, Chizmar, Inderlied, and w/o #46. When he joins the team, Zinn could potentially play at either offensive or defensive midfield.
