College Crosse News

Penn State had a rough go of it in 2018, but they look like they are ready for a bounce back year in 2019. Here is their schedule for the upcoming season.

Penn State’s full lineup of games was released on Wednesday. The schedule consists of largely similar non-conference opponents with one major addition. The Nittany Lions will take on the defending NCAA champion Yale Bulldogs in February. Starting off the year, Penn State will have two scrimmages. The Nittany Lions host Lafayette on January 19 and Army on January 26. The regular season kicks off the same way it did last year. The Nittany Lions host Villanova on February 2 with hopes of earning a big win over a Wildcat team that squeaked out an overtime victory in the opener last season.

Check out these great Halloween costumes from some of our favorite teams.

Things are going well in the NLL.

Richmond’s been killing it with these slo-mo videos.

Yesterday was a BEAUTIFUL day at Wagner.

Work first, then candy at VMI.

Merrimack got their championship rings yesterday.

Good article from US Lacrosse on the state of the women’s game and where it is going.

And while Ohlmiller became known as the queen of the BTB, she identifies most with the acronym DTD. Dare to dream. “A lot of the things I’m going to promote to young girls and make them realize is hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard,” Ohlmiller said.

After graduating from Stony Brook as a two-time Tewaaraton finalist and being selected No. 1 overall in both the UWLX and WPLL drafts, opting to play in the latter, Ohlmiller inked an endorsement deal with Brine/New Balance. She and Marie McCool are the new faces of the brand — joining the likes of Taylor Cummings (Under Armour), Kayla Treanor (Nike) and Michelle Tumolo (STX), among others, who hope to usher in an era of unprecedented exposure for the women’s game.

“The time is now,” Ohlmiller said. “It’s such a trending sport right now.” Cummings, McCool, Ohlmiller and Tumolo took time out of their busy schedules for a roundtable discussion on the state of the women’s game and its future.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Dock Street Brewing Co. releasing ‘It’s Always Sunny’ beer.

If you’re a devoted viewer of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” you may have spotted Mac (Rob McElhenney) rocking a Dock Street Brewery T-shirt on the show. Go rewatch last season’s “Old Lady House: A Situation Comedy” to spot the shout out, or this season’s premiere, “The Gang Makes Paddy’s Great Again.

For the Season 13 finale, Dock Street has will host a screening of the episode, and is also releasing an “It’s Always Sunny”-inspired beer. The limited-release brew is a 5.5-percent ABV milk stout in 16-ounce cans. The artwork features the words “The gang tries to get Mac to come to Dock Street” and a drawing of Mac in the brewery’s shirt.

World/National News

Philly fans back at it: Red Sox fans damaged the World Series trophy and hit players and their families with beer cans.

Boston police have arrested a man accused of hitting someone with a can of beer thrown during the parade celebrating the World Series-winning Red Sox. Police said 19-year-old Patrick Connolly, of Sandwich, Massachusetts, was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police said the can struck but didn’t injure an unidentified man aboard one of the amphibious duck boats carrying players and their families in Wednesday’s parade. It wasn’t immediately clear if the beer can Connolly allegedly threw was the same can that hit and damaged a World Series trophy or if the man it hit was a ballplayer. During the New England Patriots championship parade in Boston in 2017, some players -- including tight end Rob Gronkowski -- caught beers thrown by fans and drank them. But a number of Red Sox players did not seem happy about Wednesday’s beer tossing.
