MLL Week 8: Atlanta rises again while Rattlers sting champs

July 26, 2019

This past weekend in Major League Lacrosse proved a combination of Gone with the Wind and Caddyshack. Like Scarlet O’Hara, the Atlanta Blaze rebound from a tough two-loss weekend and took down the second place Boston Cannons 15-12. Dallas secured their first win of the season behind the stellar play of undrafted free agent Sean Sconone. Bill Murray’s weed whacking scene in which he talks about a young unknown out…


PLL: 24 players taken during inaugural draft

April 25, 2019

The 2019 Premier Lacrosse League draft was held on Monday but was held until 2 a.m. when it was shown on tape-delay on NBC Sports Network. With four rounds and six teams the PLL draft only featured 24 picks so there really isn’t much room to error, no matter how stacked every roster is already. Archers LC had the first overall pick and they went with the bonafide favourite and…

College Lacrosse Weekend Preview: All Chaos Conference?

April 15, 2016

With so much drama in the ACC, it’s kinda hard getting into the NCAA Tournament scene. But they, somehow, some way, keep coming up with interesting storylines every single day. I’m no Snoop Dogg, but if you use your imagination and tinker the first four lines of Gin And Juice with ACC references, it’s actually a pretty good summary of the conference’s season. Except Notre Dame, who’s sitting comfortably as…


College Lacrosse Weekend Preview: T-Minus 29 Days Until Selection Sunday

April 8, 2016

We’re starting the final stretch of the season with under a month until Selection Sunday for the NCAA Tournament. Unlike last year, it’s a very wide open field, with only two ACC teams in the top 15 in RPI. Some early Bracketology projections have Notre Dame and Syracuse in, with some even including Virginia. Except for Notre Dame, the ACC is on the bubble for some spots, with UNC and…

Penn State Faces 1-5 UMass

The team has been touring New England for spring break, and will round out their travels against the Minutemen.

NCAA Pre Season: UMass Faces St. Johns

January 21, 2015

As the new year hits the University of Massachusetts, the only thing Minutemen fans can look forward to is a new start. After the team finished the season, last year, with a 1-4 conference record, the team is ready to turn things around. The team has brought in the two New Hampshire studs, Buddy Carr and Dom St. Laurent. With the added offense and last years leading scorer, Nick Mariano,…


Fall Ball Checkin: UMass

October 27, 2014

For a team that has produced players like Kevin Leveille and Will Manny, it is certainly tough for the fan base to see them finish their conference with a 1-4 record. The team struggled to find an offense that worked consistently. They often looked at forward Nick Mariano, a sophomore out of New York, however success on the NCAA level can’t always just come from one player. The team needed…
