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).

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.

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!

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!

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!

While all three of these schools play in the NESCAC, the three-way rivalry is alive and well at each institution.
