April 15, 2014

Syracuse @ Notre Dame Last weekend, Notre Dame had an intense game against Duke.  This was a huge upset for the Blue Devils, but an even bigger boost in morale for the Irish.  The Irish are hoping their 12-10 win over their ACC rival will set the bar high for future success.  Freshman Cortney Fortunato had a career-high five goals last game, and she is having quite the season.  She…

March 21, 2014

North Carolina (9-0)—Carolina is still dominating the field, but this Saturday will face Boston College; a surging team with an explosive offense and solid defense. This will be the first real test for the Tarheel’s in weeks, who hope to end Week 10 undefeated.

NCAAW: UNC Battles Boston College This Week

March 18, 2014

Harvard vs Yale—There’s nothing more exciting than two Ivys going head to head. Last year, when the two teams met, Harvard came out on top with a 10-5 victory over the Bulldogs. Yale is hoping to change things up this year and they are hoping their home field advantage will give them a great morale boost from the crowd.

The intensity in South Bend, Indiana was high yesterday as Louisville visited the Fighting Irish for a match.

The Irish are a comeback team, and then scored three goals in the next two minutes to tie the…


NCAAW Power Rankings Week 3: Tarheels On Top, Orange in the Hunt

March 5, 2014

In week four we say goodbye to Loyola Maryland, who fell out of the Top 10 after falling to 2-2 on the season. Their loss; however, is someone else’s gain as Johns Hopkins is the latest undefeated team to crack the power rankings. North Carolina (6-0)-Like many fans, I cannot wait to see this team take on Syracuse on April 12th. It is very possible that both teams remain undefeated…


Oregon Ducks Are Consistently Great; Temple Inconsistent Period

March 1, 2014

 This Saturday, the hot Oregon Ducks take on the struggling Temple University in NCAAW weekend lacrosse action. This will be the third straight road game for Oregon, and could potentially put them 3-0 on the season. Conversely, Temple will be playing their third home game of the season, but winning this game would mean notching a “W” for the first time since Week 1, when they defeated Saint Joseph’s at…
