Last weekend, the Wesleyan Men’s Lacrosse team headed up to Brunswick, Maine to take on the then #18th ranked Bowdoin Polar Bears. Wesleyan went down early but pulled back and ended up winning 6-5 to go 3-0 on the season. Wesleyan has since won again over Farmingdale State and plays Middlebury this weekend. That will be an interesting game that I am attending personally. It should be that good! Plus it’s always nice to get back to Middletown, CT to see the old laxing grounds.
Bowdoin, who has without Owen Smith (also an excellent Bowdoin Hockey player) in the Wesleyan game, did not see him play in their against Nazareth, although he did dress. It didn’t seem to matter because the Polar Bears went on to win 21-5 in what was a huge statement game. The loss to Wesleyan may have sparked something in Bowdoin and their game against a surging Trinity this weekend should tell us a lot more. Trinity beat Conn College, which was big a couple days ago. But now Conn seems really suspect after their loss to Clarkson. I guess we’ll find out the truth soon enough!
On to the photos! Matt Vita, Parent of current Wesleyan sophomore player, Gus Vita, sent over these professional level photographs and they really show the intensity that accompanies any NESCAC game. Absolutely great stuff!!!
