Week six of the college lacrosse season is in the books and it was another wild one.

So without further ado, here is the Lacrosse Bucket Team of The Week for week six of the 2022 college lacrosse season.

Attack: Matt Brandau, Yale

The Bulldogs took down the Denver Pioneers 16-13 on Sunday in a game where the Elis controlled the pace for most of the contest. Once again, it was senior Matt Brandau that led the way for the Yale offense as he tallied a season-high eight points off five goals and three assists.

Attack: Kevin Lindley, Loyola

In the Greyhounds’ big 12-10 win over the Duke Blue Devils, Lindley had himself a day. The fifth-year attackman had himself a first-half sock trick and also dished out an assist to finish with seven points on the day. Four of his goals came during a massive second-quarter run for Loyola.

Attack: Jack Myers, Ohio State

The Ohio State Buckeyes got a bounce back win over Notre Dame on Saturday and Jack Myers returned to his dominant ways, that is after being held to just one point a week prior. Myers ended with seven points off four goals and three assists.

Midfield: Graham Bundy, Jr., Georgetown

Georgetown earned a bounce back win over Richmond on Saturday. In the win, Bundy was the leader of the Hoyas offense, scoring five goals while also dishing out one assist for a game-high six points.

Midfield: Patrick Skalniak, Navy

The Midshipmen earned their first Patriot League victory on Sunday as they beat Colgate 12-11. As usual, it was the Navy midfield that led the way on offense and Skalniak was at the forefront of that effort. He tallied six points off five goals and one assist to help in the win.

Midfield: Nick Loring, Harvard

Harvard went to Ann Arbor and knocked off the previously undefeated Michigan Wolverines, 14-9, on Saturday afternoon. For the Crimson, it was Nick Loring who led the way with seven points of two goals and five assists. Five of those points (four assists) came in the second half alone.

Faceoff: Matthew DeSouza, Binghamton

In the Bearcats’ 12-6 midweek win over Hofstra, DeSouza was amazing. The junior went 19-for-22 (86%) at the dot to help Binghamton end the game on a 7-1 run and secure the win.

SSDM: Payton Rezanka, Loyola

Loyola earned their biggest win of the season on Sunday, beating Duke 12-10. Rezanka continued to be a bring spot for the Greyhounds, grabbing four ground balls and causing three turnovers while helping the Greyhounds defense give Duke fits for most of the game.

LSM: Alex Mazzone, Georgetown

Mazzone had a monster game in the Hoyas’ win over Richmond, scooping up four ground balls while causing three turnovers to help lead the way for that defense.

Defense: Brody LaPorte, Villanova

Villanova fell to Penn 8-7 off a last-second goal from Dylan Gergar. But despite the loss, it was an impressive defensive performance for the Wildcats, and LaPorte helped lead the way. The senior had a big game, grabbing five ground balls while causing three turnovers.

Defense: Bobby Van Buren, Ohio State

Ohio State earned a bounce back win over Notre Dame, topping the Irish 14-11. In the win, the freshman defenseman recorded two caused turnovers and scooped up one ground ball. But matched up against Pat Kavanagh, he held the attackman to just two goals and one assist.

Defense: Cole Kastner, Virginia

For the third week in a row, Kastner finds himself on this list. The defenseman was impressive in Virginia’s 15-11 win over North Carolina on Thursday as he helped hold Gray to just one goal and four points (3A) on the day and a scoreless second half. Kastner didn’t quite stuff that state sheet as he has in the past though, causing just one turnover.

Goalie: Erik Peters, Princeton

Peters has been phenomenal all season and he continued that trend over the weekend in Princeton’s 16-11 win over Rutgers. The goalie made a career-high 21 saves (11 in second half) to anchor what was a very strong defensive effort from the Tigers.
