It wasn’t the most exciting Tuesday of the college lacrosse season as we saw just one game that was competitive for the entire sixty minutes. The other three out of four games were straight up blowouts, and you could even call at least one of them a mollywhopping.
Brown 9, Providence 7
In the only real competitive game of the day, Brown took down Providence to move to 18-1 all-time in the series between these two.
This game started slower on the offensive end before both teams got going closer to the midway point of the first. After Brown got on the board first, Providence scored two straight to make it a 2-1 lead midway though the first. Brown then went on a four-goal run that made it a 2-2 game at the end of the first, and a 5-2 Brown lead at the half.
Providence got things going right out of the gate in the third as they scored two straight, making it a one-goal 5-4 Brown lead. The third ended with each team trading goals, making it a 7-5 Brown lead heading into the fourth. As Providence scored early in the fourth, a two-goal run for Brown essentially sealed the win. Providence did get one goal at the end, but that wasn’t enough as Brown walked away with the 9-7 win.
