Day 2 of the tournament is about to kick off and there will be some great match-ups for both D1 and D2 games. There were a few hiccups yesterday, as many so poignantly tweeted out, but the MCLA did what they could to work through things. This morning, I get the pleasure of announcing the St. John’s vs. Grand Valley State. St. John’s flexed their muscles with a big win over PNCLL champion Western Oregon yesterday and Grand Valley State…

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.
Onondaga Community College just won their fifth straight NJCAA title in men’s lacrosse by topping Nassau CC 15-11 on Sunday. And yet, somehow, NO ONE in the media (outside of us) is really covering it!
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.
Onondaga Community College and Nassau Community College absolutely went at it yesterday out on Long Island for the NJCAA Men’s Lacrosse national championship. OCC ended up with the 15-11 win, and their fifth straight title, and we were roundly impressed with the talent on both teams.
Onondaga Community College has claimed their 5th straight national title in the NJCAA ranks with a 15-11 win over Nassau Community College. The game was played on Long Island, at Mitchell Field, near Nassau’s campus and Hofstra.
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.
What first round upsets will we see in the MCLA D2?
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?
There is something about college sports that keep the door open for upsets – the rivalries, the trash talk, the emotion. We pick the teams, you vote on the upsets. It’s the MCLA Fan Upset of the Week!
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!
In the 70s and early 80s, Morgan State’s lacrosse team was an NCAA Division 1 force, but the school dropped the varsity program. However, over the last couple of years, Morgan State Lacrosse has seen a resurgence, with their club program improving, and the team seeing success in the NCLL.
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.
Welcome to another Lacrosse Video Explosion where we snipe the best videos from across the web and pop them into one post, for your viewing pleasure! From D1 to the MCLA, this post has it all. Sweet, sweet lacrosse action… goes down smooth!
It’s officially tournament time for everyone and we couldn’t be more excited. For the next four weeks, we are dedicating our Reader Poll to all the college lacrosse tournaments. Here’s how things will break down… 5.6 (TODAY!) – NJCAA – 4 Teams 5.13 – MCLA D1 – 8-16 Teams 5.20 – NCAA D3 – 8 Teams 5.27 – NCAA D1 – 2 Teams We’ll showcase each tournament, highlight the upcoming round of games, and then have you cast your vote…
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.
This week, lax nation has a one question, can anyone beat Colorado State?
We publish a fantastic photo every Friday, and if you drop the best Photo Caption in the comments section of this post, we hook you up with sweet LAS gear from the Lacrosse Shop!
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.
