Week four of the college lacrosse season has come and gone, and with 30-plus games being played it was the most jammed-packed weekend of the season thus far.
So without further ado, here is the Lacrosse Bucket Team of The Week for week four of the 2022 college lacrosse season.
Attack: Jack Myers, Ohio State
The Buckeyes continued their strong play on Saturday, beating Harvard 17-12 in Naples at the Southwest Florida Shootout. And it was Myers who stole the show once again, tallying 11 points off five goals and six assists.
Attack: Jacob Greiner, Jacksonville
What a weekend it was for the Dolphins as they headed out west and beat another top-20 team in Denver before moving to 4-1 with a win over Air Force on Saturday. In both of those games Greiner netted a sock trick (6G) to lead the way for the Jacksonville offense. He also added an assist against the Falcons, bringing his weekend point total to 13.
Attack: Chris Gray, North Carolina
After a blow out loss in week three, North Carolina bounced back with wins over Brown and Johns Hopkins this past week. Gray combined for 14 points in those wins, getting two goals and three assists midweek against the Bears before having a gaudy nine-point (7G/2A) game against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Midfield: Declan McDermott, Georgetown
The Hoyas took down the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 16-11 in a top-five matchup on the road. McDermott was very much apart of Georgetown’s offensive success, tallying four goals and one assist for five points to help the Hoyas tear through the Irish defense every chance they got.
Midfield: Lance Madonna, Richmond
The Spiders came back from down 9-1 at the end of the first quarter and beat the Towson Tigers 16-15 in triple overtime. Lance Madonna led the way for the Richmond offense, tallying seven points off six goals and one assist.
Midfield: Sam English, Princeton
Princeton went 1-1 last week, bulldozing Binghamton midweek and falling to top-ranked Maryland 15-10 on Saturday. English combined for nine goals in those contests, having five points (2G/3A) before
Faceoff: James Reilly, Georgetown
James Reilly dominated the faceoff dot from the get-go and ended with a 72% (21-for-29) day to help the Hoyas to a fact start that pushed them past Notre Dame.
SSDM: Roman Puglise, Maryland
Puglise continued his strong play on Saturday in the Terrapins’ 15-10 win over Princeton, grabbing four ground balls, causing two turnovers, and getting two points with a goal and an assist.
LSM: Sammy Cambere, Utah
Utah moved to 2-1 on the season with a 12-11 win over Marquette. Cambere once again made a massive impact, causing four turnovers, scooping up seven ground balls, scoring a goal, and assisting on one.
Defense: Gavin Adler, Cornell
On Saturday, Cornell held Lehigh to just five goals and their top offensive weapon, Tommy Schelling, to just two assists. Getting that matchup quite often, Adler was a big part of that defensive effort as a leader on the back end. He scooped up two ground balls.
Defense: Brennan Greenwald, Drexel
Helping to get the Dragons their first win of the season over the UAlbany Great Danes, Greenwald had a monster game. The pole ended the day with five ground balls and four caused turnovers.
Defense: Cole Kastner, Virginia
Kastner proved to be a backbone for this Cavaliers defense as they blew out Syracuse 20-11 on Saturday. The sophomore defenseman ended the day with four caused turnovers and one ground ball to lead the way on the back end.
Goalie: Owen McElroy, Georgetown
There were multiple outstanding goalie performances last week, but it’s not to mention that man with 24 saves. McElroy’s big performance helped the Hoyas stifle the Irish’s comeback effort and secure the 16-11 road win against a top-five Notre Dame squad.
