Terps' Yeatman could return Saturday

Nice to see the, uh, technical glitches from earlier today are fixed up. But needless to say, this is not the first time all day I tried to toss something up.

Nevertheless, it’s late, so not much is coming. But there was one item gleaned from after Maryland’s 15-6 lacrosse defeat of Binghamton in College Park.

Attackman Will Yeatman (ankle) did not play for the second straight game, but coach Dave Cottle said the timetable on a return in Saturday’s visit to Penn.

That might be more helpful than expected for the Terrapins who have a chance – a chance, mind you – to get on a late-season run thanks to some fortuitious seeding in the ACC tournament.

Penn owns an ugly 3-7 record. But the Quakers upended twice-beaten Brown last weekend, and nearly toppled Princeton a week ago. So they’re not a team to be trifled with, and Yeatman will help Maryland out.

Of course, what the Terps really need is a healthy Yeatman for the ACC and NCAA tournaments. Maryland’s midfield looks like it is emerging from its coma (all three starters plus freshman Joe Cummings had two goals against an overmatched foe today), and Yeatman’s presence would only enhance the value of everyone around him – even if it would again leave Cottle with some interesting decisions on how to rotate his four attackmen.
