Wow! I’m surprised anyone still has a pules after all those crazy games that went down across the country today. 

The biggest storyline was all the big surprises we saw today, especially #7 ranked Hopkins losing to unranked Towson, #13 ranked Lehigh losing to unranked Hofstra, and #4 ranked Loyola dropping #6 ranked Virginia. #18 ranked UMass also lost in overtime to Army and #9 ranked Penn State KILLED Robert Morris. 

Some big first happened today as Utah got their first win in program history and St. Bonaventure was able to find the back of the net for the first time as well. 

It was a wild weekend and really a wild week as a whole, to say the least. But, this is college lacrosse and it’s just early February so some teams still haven’t played a game yet.

Highlights

Loyola defeats Virginia 17-9 behind an impressive showing from Pat Spencer and Kevin Lindley.

Alex Woodall, Brendan Sunday, and Zach Goodrich all helped Towson blow by the Blue Jays with an impressive win to open the season. Don’t sleep on the Tigers.

The Nittany Lions continue to roll as they hung 27 on Robert Morris to blow by the Colonials and avenge last year’s loss.

A 4th quarter comeback and impressive play from Kieran Mullins would help Rutgers escape Queen’s with a skim win over St. John’s.

It was a very low scoring game in Bethlehem as Hofstra upset #13 ranked Lehigh with a 4th quarter offensive jolt.

Maryland escaped a comeback from Richmond to defeat the Spiders 10-9 in College Park.

UMass and Army went into overtime as the Black Knights were able to pull out a huge early season win over the #18 ranked Minutemen.
