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).
I’m not going to lie, I am VERY excited for tonight’s Albany vs. Johns Hopkins game on ESPNU (7pm ET).

Lyle Thompson casually throws a split dodge behind his back, makes another quick move, and then feeds the crease, where he finds his brother, Miles, who finished with a casual behind the back goal. When your stick is an extension of your body, and you play a ton of backyard lacrosse, these kind of plays become routine. For the rest of us, it’s simply amazing, but for the Thompsons? It’s just another day at the office.
