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.

What gives with all this February college lacrosse? Is there such a thing as too early?
Tufts took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter over Wesleyan, but the Cardinals fought back and ended up winning a tight game, 8-7, in regulation.
With 30 seconds left, Colby had possession, but Wesleyan forced a turnover, pushed the ball down field and, with only a second or two left, Graham Mcnab found Quentin DellaFera cutting to the crease, and DellaFera finishes with a low bounce shot to win it for the Cardinals.
The NESCAC is the toughest top to bottom conference in all of college lacrosse and we have a photo explosion for the ‘CAC! Tufts, Bowdoin, Trinity, Wesleyan, Colby, Amherst and more! Plus photos of some out of conference foes!

This week’s Hot Pot features the weirdest lacrosse goal, possibly of all-time. Corresponding explanation after the jump! We’ve also got news and links and a BIG illegal hit as our video of the week. If we don’t play with restraint, our game could get the NFL “no hitting” treatment. Is that a bad thing?
Connor Wilson is kicking off Friday with a collection of photos from Baltimore to Thailand to Australia to Vermont. He has also selected some top notch highlights and a CLASSIC parent reaction to a goal!

College Box Lacrosse is a solid idea, but it needed a spark to really take off. And thanks to a comment by SwankLax, we may have found that spark. It was right under our noses: The NESCAC!

By the 2013 college lacrosse season, Stevenson will have left the CAC, and entered the MAC. This is HUGE DIII news and not just for the teams in the MAC, CAC and down South. This will effect Northern teams as well… but most likely, in a positive way!
