Tufts took down Salisbury 12-9 to claim the 2014 NCAA Division 3 Men’s Lacrosse title. The Gulls of SU went down 1-0 on an early Tufts goal, but would build up an early 3-1 lead, and look in control. Tufts fought back, winning face offs and creating transition and the game was tied at half, 5-5. Tufts began to inch away in the third quarter, and eventually built up a solid lead. Scoring 3 goals in 48 seconds never hurts…

Welcome to the day of days in D3 lacrosse! It’s Tufts Vs Salisbury for the third time ever in a title game, and each team has a historic win over the other, but that’s in the past! Today, we get to see what 2014 has in store for us, and it promises to be excellent.
It’s that wonderful time of the year where lacrosse video REALLY means something! The games are all one and done, and in each division, there can be only champ. Who’s bringing home the hardware? We shall know quite soon!
So, you’re moving along on Wednesday, thinking about this weekend’s awesome D1 quarterfinal games, and then all of a sudden, you realize there are quarterfinal games TODAY, and you freak out.
It’s conference championship time! This is a huge week for lacrosse, as the tournament is right around the corner. While some teams have already qualified, other teams will go head to head this week in order to try and get a bid into the NCAA tournament. Here’s a look at the conference tournaments, a look at the rankings, and some other story lines.
In what has quickly become an annual slugfest, the Salisbury Sea Gulls took down the Stevenson Mustangs in a top 5 NCAA D3 contest last night. As is often the case in an SU – SU game, there was plenty of laundry thrown by the refs, and the teams combined for 26 minutes of penalties via 29 infractions.
Normally you’ve got some monster D1 match up, and it more than qualifies as the best game of the weekend, but this weekend? This weekend is different, and there is a different college level of lacrosse you need to watch.
That’s right, it’s Rivalry Week on LAS! We’re getting all jazzed up for the Hopkins – Maryland game, and we’re going to be taking in the OSU – Michigan game LIVE. But before we get into all that (keep your eyes peeled for rivalry posts all week), we’re going to run down the list of some top notch college lacrosse rivalries!
Salisbury took down WAC 12-7 to win the War on the Shore! This is a huge annual rivalry game, and the winner of the yearly contest takes home the Charles B. Clark Cup each year to make it extra special. Salisbury hosted WAC this year, and the atmosphere was electric, as it always is!
Last year SU went 17-6 (man, that’s a lot of games!) and lost to Stevenson in the NCAAs 12-6. Stevenson went on to win it all, and all of a sudden, people were talking about a new King of the South. But now, Salisbury releases a video on Vimeo titled We Are Salisbury, and it has to have you thinking that last year was an aberration. The guys at Salisbury are clearly ready to roll.
Last year was a very exciting year in Division 3 men’s lacrosse, with Stevenson winning their first ever championship. Aurora College in Colorado made their first NCAA tournament, and won a game. RIT beat Cortland with a hidden ball trick, and Salisbury was finally dethroned as the most dominant team in the South, if only for a season. As fall ball and training continues to roll, here’s a look at some of the top teams from last year, as well as a couple potential dark horses for 2014.
Kliff Kingsbury is now the youngest coach in the BCS, at only 33 years of age. He was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M last year, and helped propel Johnny Manziel to a Heisman worthy season, so trusting his knowledge and approach should be a little easier, even if you’re an age-ist.
Here’s a great shot captured by TLN’s Contest Colin. The player pictured is Southland Laxer Knute Kraus (Salisbury ’15), and not only is he rocking a jammy pack pre-game, but the Orange Balloon is prominently featured in the background.
The Salisbury Gulls escaped with a 4-3 win at home over Ohio Wesleyan in some Sunday NCAA D3 men’s lacrosse action.
In today’s match-up, we pit two of LXM Pro’s best against each other. A battle just as big as Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, the season veteran vs. the young gun. The only difference is these two are on the same team, work for the same lacrosse company and they are great friends.
