Given the parity in college lacrosse these days, it’s only natural for most NCAA attackmen to enter a game prepared. Ready to pick a corner and score the overtime game winner? “Always” is the new mentality, at least at the NCAA Division I men’s level, and it doesn’t stop at the offensive side of the ball. Look no further than Notre Dame defenseman Garrett Epple for a perfect example of a longpole ready, willing and able to attack.
So are we really all that surprised about the outcome of this weekend’s games? An overtime game winner trifecta? No, we just want more of them, please. These are the games that fill seats!
