Albany took down Stony Brook 17-7 this week, and the Thompsons were back to their old tricks, scoring at will, and making the rest of us look like average lacrosse players. This win was huge for Albany because it wrapped up an America East tourney bid for the Danes (they are 3-0 in conference).

Normally you’ve got some monster D1 match up, and it more than qualifies as the best game of the weekend, but this weekend? This weekend is different, and there is a different college level of lacrosse you need to watch.
There were so many lacrosse games on TV this weekend, my DVR almost couldn’t handle it. In case your DVR didn’t cut the mustard, we’ve culled the internet for great college lacrosse videos, and put them all in one place, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
While I can admit polls aren’t going anywhere, I can also acknowledge that they are massively flawed, and really only good for one thing: sports commentators blowing hot air about how to rank teams based on games that have yet to be played! I believe polls need to be more results-oriented, and less about what people think.
We’re getting closer and close to the world championships in Denver! Rosters are being trimmed down to a final set, numbers are being assigned, players are working harder than ever to prepare, and many fundraising efforts are nearing their final stages!
If you don’t love a good hidden ball trick, there might be something wrong with you. Go see a stick doctor immediately. ASA College pulled off the old hidden ball trick this year, and we found video. It’s an exciting time!
It’s Loyola’s first year in the Patriot League, and they’ve already secured the #1 seed and right to host the semifinals and finals for the league this postseason. Their latest W came over first year program Boston University. The Hounds took a 15-6 win over the Terriers in front of their home crowd fans, as the game was played a the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.
Over 10,000 fans made their way to Michie Stadium for the annual Army-Navy game, and Army came out on top at home, winning 14-7, and upping their record to 8-3. Army now sits in second behind Loyola for the Patriot League. Navy drops to 4-7 overall with the loss.
We got two kind of crazy high school lacrosse goals via the LAS Tipline last night, so we figured why not pit these two bizarre markers against one another, and see which one the people think is crazier! Both goals are pretty rare things to see, so we’re curious if one is weirder than the other!
The fancy stuff didn’t start with the Thompsons, although they have taken things to a whole new level of consistency and flair… remember the greats! Brendan Carey is one of them! Photo of the oldest backbreaker in college history!
Welcome to another installment of The JuCo Report! I’m running through all the big games, video, photos, and stories from the world of NJCAA lacrosse. It’s the one place where NJCAA lacrosse really gets the respect it deserves!
Welcome back to another great installment of The D3 Report! We’ve got a ton of great info, some fantastic video, and an update on where we stand in the giant world that is D3 men’s NCAA lacrosse!
Never let someone tell you that playing lacrosse is impossible. It IS possible, no matter what obstacles stand in your way. If you have a physical disability, you can play. If you don’t have a great stick, you can play. Heck, you don’t even need a real field to play the game!
The vast majority of rivalries involved two sides, but every once in a while, you find a three-way rivalry that really works. It’s rare, but special, and I’m happy to say that I played a small part in a great one. The Little Three consists of Amherst College, Wesleyan University, and Williams College. While all three of these schools play in the NESCAC, the three-way rivalry is alive and well at each institution.
The FIL 2014 World Lacrosse Championships are only a short Spring season away, and national teams around the world are preparing to make the trip to Colorado for two weeks (or more in some cases) in July, and that means a lot of training camps, scrimmages, and quite a bit of fundraising! We have also learned that lacrosse is headed to the World Games in 2017!
Ranking D1 lacrosse teams is tough. Last week we had an easy criticism to make and could say Cornell should be #1, by virtue of them being undefeated. Then they lost to Harvard. Now it’s fair to give that coveted (but somewhat meaningless) #1 spot to Loyola free and clear. After that, the rankings get a little more confusing… let’s see if they’re serious or not!
That’s right, it’s Rivalry Week on LAS! We’re getting all jazzed up for the Hopkins – Maryland game, and we’re going to be taking in the OSU – Michigan game LIVE. But before we get into all that (keep your eyes peeled for rivalry posts all week), we’re going to run down the list of some top notch college lacrosse rivalries!
Cornell is no longer the sole undefeated team in D1 after they dropped a decision to Harvard, 14-9, on their home field in Ithaca, NY. Cornell took leads of 1-0, 4-1, and 6-4, but Harvard fought back and tied it up each time. Harvard took the lead for the first time early in the third quarter to go up 7-6, and never looked back from there.
