Some fans hoped for an alternate lacrosse logo to be used courtesy of the New York Islanders for the Riptide:

Even the non-lacrosse fans showed their support for the new New York franchise:

And others (including LAS contributor Evan Schemenauer) were disappointed that the franchise didn’t use the Saints mascot:

But, the general consensus was that people liked the Halifax branding:



There was also some pretty funny Twitter beef going on between the Philadelphia Wings and New England Black Wolves. Peruse their Twitter handles here: @NEBlackWolves and @NLLWings. A member of the Toronto Rock’s training team sure thought it was great:

As for the NCAA, there was at least one record-breaking performance over the weekend by the Hobart Lacrosse team. Matthew Pedicine went 32-for-37 at the faceoff X to set an NCAA record for most goals in a game. Jason Knox set a record for most goals in a game by a Hobart Lacrosse player with nine. This also broke the Northeast Conference’s record for goals in a game as well. Read about it here. You can see some highlights here:

A segment on ESPN‘s SportsCenter was also aired on Loyola’s Pat Spencer, for his incredible outing against Johns Hopkins:

Danny Dolan, goalie for Maryland Men’s Lacrosse, made this you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it-save for the ‘Terps to keep them in the game, which they eventually won in overtime against Penn:

Defending NCAA champion Yale took on Villanova, and were left stunned as Villanova walked away with the 11-10 win in overtime:

We even had a longpole behind-the-back goal by the UNC Men’s Lacrosse team:



In the women’s game, Janee Deluca of Saint Leo scored another sweet behind-the-back goal for the Lions:

Unranked Johns Hopkins also took down No. 12 Loyola 13-11 in the Blue Jays women’s upset:

Jen Giles of Maryland also made this Florida defender look silly:

What a week! Thanks for reading Twitter Reactions. Stay with LaxAllStars for all of your NLL and NCAA coverage.
