Albany took down Stony Brook 17-7 this week, and the Thompsons were back to their old tricks, scoring at will, and making the rest of us look like average lacrosse players. This win was huge for Albany because it wrapped up an America East tourney bid for the Danes (they are 3-0 in conference).
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.
It’s Loyola’s first year in the Patriot League, and they’ve already secured the #1 seed and right to host the semifinals and finals for the league this postseason. Their latest W came over first year program Boston University. The Hounds took a 15-6 win over the Terriers in front of their home crowd fans, as the game was played a the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.
Over 10,000 fans made their way to Michie Stadium for the annual Army-Navy game, and Army came out on top at home, winning 14-7, and upping their record to 8-3. Army now sits in second behind Loyola for the Patriot League. Navy drops to 4-7 overall with the loss.

We’re moving along with the NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse rivalries, highlighting the historic matchup between the Syracuse Orange and the Virginia Cavaliers.
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.
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.

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.
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.

I’m not going to lie, I am VERY excited for tonight’s Albany vs. Johns Hopkins game on ESPNU (7pm ET). In my rabid fandom I searched for videos of the Thompsons, and while I came across a number of well known classics, I also found a hidden gem that has somehow slipped through the cracks. How does this video of Lyle Thompson (playing for Lafayette HS) only have 771 views?
