What a weekend of lacrosse! We saw some crazy upsets, some not so crazy upsets, and a ton of amazing college lacrosse action. Let’s run down ALL the weekend’s big time scores and reports, and we’ll provide video wherever possible!

Loyola was the heavy favorite heading in, but that mattered little as Albany started out hot, played composed lacrosse for 60 minutes, and got a superb effort from their defense and goalie, Blaze Riorden. The Danes beat the Hounds 13-6 on the road, and move on to the next round of the NCAA tourney, looking like the hottest team in the country.
There is more high quality lacrosse on TV (and online) today, than there is on any other day of the year. That is a pretty tough augment to make in general, but I think that May 10th lives up the hype in more ways than one! Below I’ll run down the full slate of games going down today, and how you can watch as many of them as possible!
Yesterday, the NCAA tournament kicked off with play-in games for the D1 bracket, and first round action going down in men’s D3 lacrosse. We’ll run down the results, provide video where we can, and talk about the big match ups in the next round.
We will open things up with a buddy pass that turned into a vicious hit. But was it LEGAL? We’re interested to hear what you guys think. Then we move on to college lacrosse game highlights, and we have a ton of them! All the best footage, from all the big games, all in one place. Just what you need for a Tuesday in May!
In the spirit of “Is this D1 lacrosse poll serious?”, I’ll be taking a look at the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament teams and asking whether or not they were ranked correctly. Was Duke really deserving of the #1 seed? Should a non-AQ Ivy team really have made it in to the tourney over Hofstra? Let’s take a look and see if this selection group is serious!
The Loyola vs Johns Hopkins rivalry game can no longer be called the “Charles Street Massacre” by anyone in good conscience… it’s simply the “Battle of Charles Street” now, and this battle for Baltimore dominance is only getting better! We’ve got photos, GIFs, and video from this great college lacrosse rivalry game!
Albany goes down 4-0 to Stony Brook, and then the Thompsons start scoring and things change quickly. We go from upset alert to straight up battle, with #1 seed Albany eventually winning out. You want behind the back goals? You want awesome dodges and passing? You want a game that goes to OT where the Danes win 17-16 and need a last second goal just to make it to OT?
This week’s Video Explosion takes things to the next level. Not only is there a ton of NCAA D1 men’s lacrosse video, but there is also analysis, and things to watch for in thee coming days and weeks. It’s playoff time and the NCAA tournament hasn’t even started. It’s the busiest time of the year for college field lacrosse, and we’re all loving it!
This is probably my last before I head off to Prague for the 21st annual Ales Hrebesky Memorial box lacrosse tournament, so I’m going to make it a good one. You can expect plenty of content from the 2014 AHM this week and next week, so for now I’ll leave you with a ton of college lacrosse video action, and what these results mean!
Loyola entered the Patriot League this year, and in their first season of conference play, they finished with a perfect 8-0 regular season record. They now get a bye to the semifinals, which they will also get to host next weekend at the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.
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).
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.
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.
