Brooklin Redmen Up Against Lakers for First Road Game

June 5, 2014

Seeing as Brooklyn plays their first game of the 2014 MSL season tonight, Wednesday June 4, there are no statistics recorded yet. A clean slate to start over, to make a championship run, and to try new systems and formations. The Lakers had the privilege of playing two games already this summer. They enter this matchup with an impressive 2-0 record thus far.  REDMEN Steve Priolo comes into the season…

NCAA ACC Roundup: Another All Conference Championship

May 29, 2014

Following Duke’s back-to-back championship wins, it seems there’s a solid perspective on the ACC as the Power House Conference. I think that’s accurate. Lacrosse continues to grow from east to west, meaning younger programs pop up the further west one goes in the US. Mostly MCLA and NCLL competition other than the Denver Pioneers. Let’s take a glance at the season-ending records of the ACC teams: Maryland 13-4 Duke   17-3…

Game Notes: What We Can Take Away From D-I Championship

Setting Following a lacrosse season that competed the majority of the 2014 season in winter elements, the field at M&T Bank Stadium was somewhere between 95 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit real-feel temperature. An occasional breeze was noticeable but most likely not to the players moving on the field in equipment. As every year, semifinals games are a mere two days before the championship. This gives the two winning teams a…

Blue Devils and Fighting Irish Will Be All Out Lacrosse

Everything either of these teams have worked for over this past season comes down to this game. This is the NCAA D-I Championship, one of the most recognized lacrosse events in the United States.

Limestone Tops LIU Post 12-6 to Claim D-II Championship Title

The Division II Championship took place at 4pm today in Baltimore, MD. Limestone went head to head against LIUPost in a heated and aggressive match.

Limestone led the momentum of the game, but LIU Post kept at…

Game Notes: Pioneers Could Have Beaten Duke

The final score of yesterday’s bout was 15-12 in Duke’s favor. It was not until there were less than three minutes remaining in the game that they were able to play toss-the-ball-don’t-stall. For that reason, amongst many others, I feel Denver could have and should have won. Duke and Denver went back and forth all day while still controlling some possessions and producing quality offensive opportunities for both teams. The…

Denver Tops Drexel in Quarterfinal Showcase

Photo Credit: Ian Neadle The difference maker in this matchup was in faceoffs and ground balls. Both teams came into this game having top-notch draw specialists, but one was clearly more prepared than the other. “I feel like faceoffs were called differently today than they have been all year and I don’t know why,” said Drexel Coach Brian Voelkner.  That quote has some validity to it as officials tend to…
