Just when we thought the cold weather was gone, the Midwest got slammed with a late March cold surge and some snow that made game conditions very difficult this weekend. We saw some great matchups throughout the week that will make life difficult for pollsters this upcoming week. Coaches Poll: USILA Week 7 D3 Weekend […]
Now that the brackets are released, it’s time for the DII and DIII men’s lacrosse tournaments. Saint Anselm is in, Adelphi is out, John Carroll and Franklin & Marshall will be at each other’s throats, Jared Nelson has the career point scoring record in his sights, and more will soon be in store. DII Men’s […]
It was a huge week across all divisions with LeMoyne yet again playing with fire, Clark and Springfield engaging in an excellent contest, the MIAA had a seismic results and more as conference tournaments are beginning to take shape. A little disheartening to see some games get postponed that will inevitably get cancelled because of […]
There weren’t many huge surprises this week, but there were some close games in the NE10 that will be interesting to look back on as the Division II men’s lacrosse season continues. NE10 AND SSC ARE BACK IN THE MIX – DII ROUND UP! It was a massive week for DII as the rest of […]
What other sport truly has a holiday weekend? Lacrosse is fortunate enough to center our game’s biggest stages around the same few days each year, giving the community one piece of stability it has always longed for.

NCAA D2 Lacrosse has a long and interesting history. Fast forward to today, and D2 looks stronger than ever in terms of talent, depth, NCAA visibility, and tournament size, and it’s going to get better from here!
Today we have a “Shooting With Gordon Purdie” video, and the best part about this short clip is that it features BOTH Gordon Purdie Junior, AND Gordon Purdie Senior! Junior played at Lynbrook in high school, where he is a 2015 graduate. From what we can tell, he’s still uncommitted! Senior is an Australian lacrosse legend and the Coach at Adelphi!
Last Thursday, I threw it back to the 80’s, showing the highlights of the Aldephi lacrosse program, specifically when they took down Harvard. It looks like the passion for lacrosse didn’t stop there, we were informed by big Gordon himself that there is another Gordon Purdie on the scene. His son, Gordon, is a 2015 product, tearing up the sport out in New York.
Gordon Purdie is the Head Coach at NCAA D2 Adelphi, and a YouTube user with the same name uploaded a great video featuring Adelphi Lacrosse from the 1980s. We can only assume it’s the same guy! Either way, the video is awesome, and well worth a watch or two.
Larry Palumbo took in the recent scrimmages between Scotland, Adelphi, and Stony Brook. It’s clear that the English aren’t the only ones testing themselves against top notch college competition, even if they are doing a GREAT job of promotion!
Joe Vitale was a two-time first team All-American in his last two years at Adelphi, and played in two games for the Charlotte Hounds last year. Right now, Vitale is on the New York Lizards’ practice squad, and he can straight up BRING THE HEAT when shooting. He hit 111 at camp this week.
