Raw talent does not mean that a team will win a championship. Talent doesn’t always win. The point that I’m trying to make with all this talk about talent is that it is NOT the single most important factor in creating a team that is going to win games. Chemistry, now that is the answer!
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.
Looking regal, watching the Battle of the Bay.
In another great match-up before the match-up, #6 Syracuse met #1 Notre Dame in a preview of this week’s 1st round Big East match-up. For the first three quarters, the game looked like a chess match between two very talented opponents. After a scoreless first quarter, the Irish would draw first blood. Going into the half, Notre Dame would hold the lead 3-1. Coach Desko must’ve had a great with the Orangemen at half, because they came out swinging, taking…
Cornell and Princeton squared-off this past weekend in a high scoring shootout that the Big Red won 17-11. Cornell was led by a stand out performance by attackmen Rob Pannell and Steve Mock, who combined for nine goals and 5 assists. A first half onslaught would bust Cornell out to an 8-1 lead, before heading into the locker rooms at 9-3 at halftime. In the second half, both squads would trade goals through the last 30 minutes. The Tigers would…

Sometimes sports create opportunities to help out a cause bigger than ourselves. This is one of those cases.

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.
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…

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.
It’s Monday, and we were treated to a boatload of excellent lacrosse this weekend. Some of it is already making its way onto the internet, where we wrangled it all together, and created a Lacrosse Video Explosion!
Loyola took down Fairfield 13-7 on Saturday at home and the defending national champions received a huge scoring boost from their star defensive midfielders as LSM Scott Ratliff pumped in a crazy four goals, and Josh Hawkins chipped in with two goals.
