Well, it was another wild Saturday of college lacrosse action, but it seemed like this wasn’t just any normal Saturday. With a lot of big games on the docket upsets and close contest were bound to happen. We ended up seeing some very close contest and some games that really made people open their eyes.
A few teams proved that some conference races aren’t as black and white as some make them out to be. The Big East, CAA, and SoCon all proved that to us today and have been doing so all year.
In the Carolina’s we saw multiple games get delayed due to bad weather. Duke-Virginia, North Carolina-Syracuse, and Bellarmine-Furman were all affected by the weather and saw long delays.
UMass 14, Towson 10
The final score makes this one look a lot closer than it actually was. The Minutemen were firing on all cylinders as they took down CAA foe Towson. UMass goalie Sean Sconone made 17 saves in the win for the Minutemen.
Boston U. 18, Loyola 11
It was an exciting one in Boston as the Terriers took down the visiting Greyhounds of Loyola. While Loyola was able to make a few small comebacks, Boston U. was able to dominate for the majority of the game. Chris Gray led the Terriers with 8 points (4G/4A) in the win.
Army 9, Navy 8 (OT)
Navy was able to put together a huge comeback in the second half, and force overtime late in the fourth. Matt Manown scored the game winner for Army as he tip-toed the crease to put it in the back of the net, winning the 100th meeting for Army and breaking navy’s win streak.
Air Force 14, Richmond 7
In a big SoCon matchup the Falcons took down the Spiders, dominating right out of the gate. Matthew Schwartz led the way for Air Force with 5 points (4G/1A) in the win.
Syracuse 12, North Carolina 9
After being down 5-2 heading into the second Syracuse went off. The Orange put together some pretty big runs to help secure the road win against ACC foe North Carolina. Nate Soloman led the way for the Orange with 4 points (3G/1A).
Duke 12, Virginia 7
After a four and half hour weather delay both teams were finally ready to take the field. It was a tale of two halves as Duke exploded in the second to help them secure the win. Joe Robertson led Duke with 4 points (3G/1A) in the win.
