Week eleven of the college lacrosse season is officially in the books. And while there were outstanding performances across the country, here’s our three stars from week eleven of the season. 

First Star

James Reilly, Faceoff, Georgetown

After falling to the Pioneers on the road a month and a day earlier, the Georgetown Hoyas took down the Denver Pioneers in Washington, D.C., 11-10, in overtime on Saturday to earn their biggest win of the season. A big reason for the Hoyas victory: faceoff man James Reilly. Going up against one of the best one-two punches at the faceoff dot in college lacrosse, Reilly went 16-for-24 (67%) on the day for, perhaps, his best and most memorable performance of the season.

Second Star

Richie LaCalandra, Attack, LIU

In the LIU Sharks’ 17-15 victory over the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers on Saturday, the sophomore attackman had a career-high in points, goals, and assists. LaCalandra ended the day with six goals and five assists for eleven points in the win.

Third Star

Charlie Kitchen, Attack, Delaware

A week after suffering their first CAA loss of the season at the hands of the Drexel Dragons, the Delaware Blue Hens went into Hempstead and pulled out an overtime victory over the Hofstra Pride 14-13. Fifth-year attackman Charlie Kitchen was a major part of the Blue Hens’ effort, tying his career-high in points with nine and recording a career-high in goals with six. He also had three assists, which included assisting on the game-winning goals.

Honorable Mention

Adam Charlambides, Attack, – Eight points (6G/2A) vs Johns Hopkins

Chris Gray, Attack, North Carolina – Eight points (2G/6A) @ Syracuse

Matt Campbell, Midfield, Villanova – Seven points (6G/1A) @ St. John’s

Zach Cole, Faceoff, Saint Joseph’s – 20-for-22 @ Bryant

Spencer Rees, Goalie, Navy – 15 saves @ Loyola
