Turns out that Tommy Lingner is still one of the best goalies in the country.
The Team 91 2017 alumnus by way of St. Anthony’s was flat-out incredible yet again for UMBC. This time, he stopped a career-high 18 shots to help secure the America East regular-season title for the Retrievers.
The 18 saves marked the third straight game with at least a dozen saves for Lingner. As a result, he earned America East Defensive Player of the Week honors. UMBC will take on Albany in this week’s America East tournament.
Backs against the wall, down by 4 in the 2nd half @HofstraMLAX mounted a much-needed comeback last night.
