BEARS VS BEARS

 

Navy (Patrick Keena) 16

Colgate (Robby Dunigan) 9

Robby got a place in the starting lineup for the first time this year and didn’t  waste any time in making it count, notching the first score of the game.  Robby also contributed two assists, tying for team high points for the Raiders.  The Middies were relentless, however, scoring four goals in each period, including a run of 8 straight in the first half and four straight coming out of the locker room for the second half.   Patrick had 2 goals and one assist and took a team high 10 shots (keep shooting!).

 

Fairfield (Charlie Schnider) 8

Drexel (Hank Brown) 7

Charlie had a hand in 75% of the Stags’ goals, scoring one and dishing out 5 assists (keep passing!).  Hank scored one goal on two shorts for the Dragons.  Fairfield is now 2-0 in conference while Drexel dropped to 0-2.

 

OTHER GAMES

 

Bucknell (Sean O’Brien, Jarret Witzal) 15

Mount St. Mary’s 10

Jarret had plenty of work to do in this high scoring game.  He won 21 of 27 faceoffs and scooped up 6 ground balls.  Down by two at the half, the Bison rallied in the second half, outscoring the Mount 9-2 (including the game’s last seven goals).

 

Cornell (Marshall Peters, Jack Bolen, Colton Rupp) 8

Harvard 12

 

Jack and Colton scored one each for the Big Red, but it wasn’t enough  to overcome the Crimson despite winning 20 of 24 faceoffs.   Marshall had two ground balls.  Cornell was up one midway through the third period, then Harvard went on a run, scoring 6 of the last 7 goals in the game.

 

Dartmouth (Landon McKenzie) 5

Yale 15

 

Landon saw his first action of the year as Dartmouth fell to the last undefeated team in D-I lacrosse.

 

Delaware (Philip Pena) 7

Hofstra 13

 

Hobart (Koko Avedesian, Riley McTague) 6

Syracuse 13

Syracuse again had the better of it in this upstate New York rivalry as the Orange scored the first five and last seven goals of the game.

 

Hobart (Koko Avedesian, Riley McTague) 16

Robert Morris 10

The win keeps the Statesmen in contention for the league tournament.

 

Johns Hopkins (Sam Lynch) 13

Ohio State 12

In a one goal game there are a thousand moments that could change the outcome, but none stands out more than the rare own goal.  Ohio State nearly intercepted an errant Blue Jay pass only to have it bounce off of the long-stick’s crosse and into the goal.

 

Penn (Peter Laco, Garrett Fellows) 6

Brown 17

Penn scored first then Brown scored 11 straight.  Brown had been high scoring and undefeated until they ran into Bryant last week in the battle of Rhode Island.  The Bears emphatically got back on the winning track against the Quakers.

 

Princeton (Mark Strabo) 10

Stony Brook 13

The week started with Princeton’s head coach, Chris Bates, leaving the school in the wake of an incident in the Tiger’s game with Brown last week.  Interim Coach Mark Madalon has to pick up the pieces and move the team forward in what has proven to be a difficult and challenging year.

 

Vermont (Coach Ryan Curtis) 7

Albany 13

After suffering 10 goal losses to Albany each of the last three seasons, the Catamounts gave the Great Danes a bit more of a game this year.

 

Virginia (Jason Murphy, Jack Falk, Michael Rhoads) 8

North Carolina 16

Virginia seemed to be righting the ship on the strength of three straight wins, but their trip to Chapel Hill undid all of that good work.  Jason was 7 for 18 on faceoffs and Jack had one ground ball for the Cavaliers.  Next week’s game against Duke may be the ‘Hoos last chance to build a post-season resume.
