College Crosse Game Day: Season 2, Episode 3

Get yourselves ready for a jam-packed Saturday in college lacrosse!

Posted by College Crosse on Saturday, February 17, 2018

Looking for the best women’s lacrosse games to watch this weekend? The Lad Skyler’s got you, fam.

It’s finally the weekend! One more day of work and it’s time to reeee... lax. Yep. There’s the pun. The women’s lacrosse season is seven days old today and we’ve already seen a couple monster upsets, with North Carolina and Penn State each losing to CAA schools.

Here’s a great article on Canisus written by friend of the blog Jack Goods.

Canisius men’s lacrosse starts a new era Saturday. The Golden Griffins play Dartmouth on the road at 1 p.m., the first game under head coach Mark Miyashita.

It’ll be strange for many to see anyone but Randy Mearns directing the Golden Griffin sideline. The Canisius alum left his alma mater in June after 19 years as the head coach to build a new program at St. Bonaventure.

Like Mearns, Miyashita was a star on the field for Canisius. He ranks in the top ten in program history in assists and points and top 15 in goals. He was the first pick in the 2003 National Lacrosse League Draft and went on to play five seasons in the league with Vancouver, Colorado and Minnesota.

He’s spent the past four years as an assistant coach with Sacred Heart, helping the Pioneers build an offense ranked second in the Northeast Conference.

Expectations aren’t high in his inaugural campaign on Main Street. Canisius was picked sixth in the seven-team Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, only ahead of Manhattan. However, with a talent like Connor Kearnan, there’s always a chance to surprise. The junior attackman was the MAAC’s co-Offensive Player of the Year last season, totaling 35 goals and 24 assists in 15 games. He’s a first-team All-MAAC preseason member and was Inside Lacrosse’s MAAC Player of the Year favorite in its Faceoff Yearbook issue.

Go Seawolves!!

Lacrosse Magazine did a nice post about Stony Brook’s big win over USC.

A Stony Brook season with sky-high aspirations opened with a convincing 14-10 win over No. 5 USC on Saturday night in the Orange County Shootout in Costa Mesa, Calif.

If there were any doubts about how No. 2 Stony Brook (1-0) would balance its three 100-point scorers, you can put those to rest.

Courtney Murphy, who set a NCAA record with 100 goals in 2016 before missing most of last year with an injury, made a triumphant return to the field, finishing with eight points on four goals and four assists.

Kylie Ohlmiller, who set a NCAA record with 164 points in Murphy’s absence in 2017, didn’t put up big numbers, but was very central to the offense and had a goal and an assist.

The Kid Chris dropped another Across College Lacrosse episode on Thursday!

BOSS DESKO!!

The CBC with a great podcast on the Creator’s Game.

Check out this awesome article on Joey Sankey growing the game in Japan.

With an accumulation of achievements already under his belt as both a lacrosse player and coach, Warminster native Joey Sankey is adding a new position to his resume: sports ambassador.

With an accumulation of achievements already under his belt as both a lacrosse player and coach, Warminster native Joey Sankey is adding a new position to his resume: sports ambassador.

Sankey, now a player for Major League Lacrosse’s Charlotte Hounds and a three-time league all-star, joined fellow MLL players Matt Gibson of the Atlanta Blaze and Mike Ehrhardt of Charlotte on a trip to Japan this month to instruct players and promote the sport to Japanese college athletes.

The venture is a return trip for Sankey and Gibson, who spent about 10 days last year traveling to four different cities in Japan and working with about 600 male and female student athletes. The trips are a promotion of a Japanese company trying to boost the sport and StringKing Lacrosse in the U.S.

BOSS Moran’s troops are ready for Navy.

Ryan Moran can’t get away from Navy. As a standout midfielder at Maryland, Moran played against Navy for four years. The Long Island native began his professional career as head coach at the Naval Academy Prep School.

Former Navy head coach Richie Meade then brought Moran down to Annapolis from Rhode Island to serve as an assistant. He helped the Midshipmen capture a pair of Patriot League championships and make three NCAA Tournament appearances. Maryland head coach Dave Cottle brought Moran back to his alma mater to serve as offensive coordinator. The Terrapins compiled a 70-30 record and reached the Final Four three times with Moran leading an offense that averaged almost 11 goals from 2009 through 2014. Of course, Maryland played against Navy every year that Moran was an assistant in College Park.

This pains me to say, but Yale vs. Villanova in Texas wouldn’t have happened were it not for Jerry Jones & the Cowboys.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Alcohol sales boomed in Philly during the Eagles Super Bowl run.

Not surprisingly, the Eagles’ run to the Super Bowl on Feb. 4 — and the victory parade that followed — was a boon to bars in the region, which usually see a post-holiday slump. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, which governs sales of wine and spirits, said sales in the Philadelphia region spiked 22.3 percent between the week before Super Bowl LII and the week ending in the Big Game. Looking at year over year, the week of the Super Bowl saw regional sales of $19.5 million, compared with $16 million in the same week in 2017. The LCB said the top sellers statewide during the Friday-to-Sunday weekend were the 1.75-liter Tito’s Handmade Vodka, followed by Hennessy Cognac VS, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Old Number 7, Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, and Capt. Morgan Original Spiced Rum.

World/National News.

No one is watching the Winter Olympics.

With 19.3 million watching on NBC, NBC Sports Network and streaming in total audience delivery, last night’s Olympics barely was basically even with Valentine’s Day’s all-time low for the 2018 games so far. Cutting into any minor celebration the Comcast-owned net might get out of being up 0.5%, all those Day 6 official competition platforms put together last night was still down over 15% from the first Thursday of Sochi 2014 – which was only seen on NBC in primetime. Putting up NBC 2018 against the broadcast-only coverage of February 13, 2014’s XXII Winter Games and things start to really sting. Last night’s primetime featuring Mikaela Shiffrin and Nathan Chen in PyeongChang dropped a hard 29% in sets of eyeballs.
