Couldn’t make it to yesterday’s NCAA quarterfinal games? Here’s what you might have missed.

We’re big Josh Dionne fans. Why, you ask? He’s got it all, and he scores some crazy unlikely goals. Allow us to explain a little further with some video evidence.
Tommy Gilligan snapped a ton of great photos from the Cornell – Ohio State game, as well as the Syracuse – Yale thriller. These two shots in particular from the Cuse – Yale game stood out, even if Yale got the better of the action here, while the Orange came out victorious.
Wooooo! What a day of lacrosse! We’ve got a ton of Lacrosse on TV, MCLA Championships being broadcast online (8pm ET), the D3 Final Four is going down, and the D2 Final Four is also on tap. The MLL is also getting into the action. There is almost too much lacrosse today, but thankfully, “too much lacrosse” is not a real thing!
When one looks at the eight remaining NCAA D1 men’s lacrosse teams, it is easy to notice that half the teams have won national championships before, and half have not. What didn’t jump out to me right away (but came to me late at night in a dream) is that no past winners are playing each other, and neither are any first time hopefuls.
What was once 16, is now 8. In Saturday’s games, you did NOT want to come out with an early lead. It was basically a death sentence. Totally coincidental? Probably. On Sunday, we were treated to a great slate of games, and these four did not disappoint.
It’s a shovel shot, but for some reason it seems like more than that. Maybe it’s all the pressure Pannell was under right before shooting it. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a playoff game. Maybe it’s the fact that Eamon gives it the SportsCenter Top 10 call… we’re not sure. We are sure, however, that this was a monster effort by RP3.
Saturday saw four D1 lacrosse teams go up early, and then fall, before the game was through. Penn State and Detroit both went up 5-1, on Yale and Notre Dame respectively, before giving way to huge comeback runs, and getting knocked out. Lehigh went up 2-0 on UNC, and looked great early on, before the Heels exploded in the 2nd quarter. Even Albany took a 1-0 lead, and then a 3-1 lead (and a 4-3 lead), before Denver’s offense really started clicking.
Connor Wilson breaks down the five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, what they’ve done, and what their chances are for winning. It’s a DEEP final five. So who’s taking home the hardware?
All three Thompsons have scored some pretty incredible goals this year, but none of them have been quite so casual AND highlight reel worthy, as this recent effort from Lyle Thompson.
Each week I’ve been asking if the D1 Lacrosse Polls Are Serious, and each week it seems like the answer is yes. Really, it’s immaterial, as all that matters is making the big dance, and then going on a run to glory.
Game Photos! The Ohio State – Loyola game was a true thriller, as Loyola went up with a slight lead in the third, and the OSU stormed back to win the game 18-11, scoring seven unanswered goals to switch the momentum completely.
Miles Thompson’s recent goal against Stony Brook is insane. He takes a look at the net, turns his back, pivots, and then just wails the ball at the net without looking, sticking it inside the pipe. If this were anyone else, we’d say they got lucky, but since it’s a Thompson, we want to know if you think he practices this.
The USILA and Nike/IL Polls for NCAA D1 Men’s Lacrosse were released yesterday. Quint Kessenich has dropped his Top 20. Did you think just because I was in Prague for box lacrosse that I wouldn’t offer up my own analysis? Come on now. I still like field lacrosse.

Hobart made the trip over to the Dome in Syracuse and knocked off the Orange, who are widely considered to be a Top 5 team. This is a huge win for Hobart, who now sits at 6-6 on the season. They won the game 13-12 despite losing in a number of statistical areas.
This past weekend offered up more excellent college lacrosse action than I’ve seen in a long time. From D1 to D2 to D3, and in the MCLA, we saw upsets and tough games. In this post we showcase some of the best D1 action from the last couple of days…
