One of the most famous rivalries in all of college sports takes place inside the state of North Carolina. Neighbors, Duke University and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill are two schools who just don’t get along, on or off the field.
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!
Cornell is no longer the sole undefeated team in D1 after they dropped a decision to Harvard, 14-9, on their home field in Ithaca, NY. Cornell took leads of 1-0, 4-1, and 6-4, but Harvard fought back and tied it up each time. Harvard took the lead for the first time early in the third quarter to go up 7-6, and never looked back from there.
Plenty of great college action means tons of quality video. We scour the internet for good stuff, and drop it all in one convenient place, for your viewing pleasure. Get caught up, get inspired… get your daily dose of lacrosse!
Loyola travelled to Annapolis to take on the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday, and the Hounds emerged with a hard tough 7-6 Patriot League win, but it took two overtime periods to decide the winner. Both keepers saw some serious heat, and we’re rewarding them in GIF format for their excellent efforts.
The Thompson Trio is certainly well-known in the lacrosse world at this point. But are they the most exciting players since Mike Powell donned #22 at Syracuse? Kyle Harrison seems to think so!
Welcome back to another crazy installment of the D3 Report! This season has been chock full of upsets, surprise teams, and quick Top 20 risers. More established programs are losing games to teams they would have beaten by 10 or more only a few years ago. Parity? Do we know that word? By now, we should!
Now that almost every D1 college lacrosse team has played at least seven or eight games we can start to question the polls once again. Forget about what’s on paper… how are these teams TRULY fairing, and where should they be ranked? It’s time to break down the USILA Top 20 Poll!
Tufts Lacrosse has been crushing it on the field, and at 7-1 the Jumbos are definitely top 10 material for 2014. Tufts lost 15-9 to Stevenson, and only beat Keene State by 1 goal (17-16), but other than that, they have been crushing opponents. To go along with that, Tufts Lacrosse is crushing the video department as well.
As the season has rolled on, it seems like there is more and more top quality lacrosse video put up online each week. We scour the internet for top quality college lacrosse video and put it all in one place, for your ease and viewing pleasure. Enjoy! Another great weekend of college lacrosse is in the books!
Sportscasters, College Presidents, and the even the average man on the street, typically dismissed the idea that college athletes should get paid. A select few saw a new potential reality, but now that Northwestern’s Football Team has been granted the right to unionize, people are starting to approach the topic with more nuance (well, sometimes…) and some deserved gravitas.
In honor of me traveling to the East Coast this week and there being snow on the ground when I look outside, here’s an awesome tweet and photo from Notre Dame assistant coach Gerry Byrne from their game against Ohio State.
A weekly series that will track the progress of Pittsburgh athletes at the next level… playing college lacrosse! As Pittsburgh has improved over time, the area has produced more and more high level talent. We are now at the point where tracking Pittsburgh players in college should be a thing. And now it is.
Lynn University lacrosse senior Brandon Rothstein tackled a hit and run suspect for running across field.
Loyola takes down Lafayette 21-4, the Hounds are undefeated in Patriot League play, Justin Ward had 8 points, Joe Fletcher scored his first career goal, and we got some great college lacrosse game photos from Craig Chase. Plus a Fletcher goal GIF!
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.
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!
The D3 Report is here to make sure that you are totally on top of the NCAA D3 men’s lacrosse scene! From Tufts to Salisbury to Stevenson to everyone else, the D3 Report delivers! Now, is this the year of the South, or is it just early?
