College Crosse News.

#1 Albany put a hurting on Vermont yesterday.

The battle of unbeaten men’s lacrosse teams was no contest at Casey Stadium this afternoon. Senior attack Connor Fields had four goals and six assists and sophomore midfielder Jakob Patterson had seven goals as the top-ranked University at Albany demolished No. 12 Vermont 21-5 before 2,583 fans in a cold, windy America East Conference opener.

UAlbany (6-0 overall, 1-0 league) is the only remaining undefeated team in Division I. Vermont (7-1, 0-1) suffered its first loss and Georgetown (6-1) was beaten by Drexel earlier in the afternoon.

The Catamounts had gotten off to a surprising start by feasting on a weak schedule against opponents that had a combined record of 14-31 entering Saturday. It was a whole different story against the powerful Great Danes, who beat Vermont for the seventh straight time.

Killa Connor Fields talks to the Times Union.

Q: Your first reaction when you found out UAlbany was No. 1 in the nation.

A: We were all super excited. Coach (Scott Marr) gave us like five seconds to go crazy. We were all pumped about it, but at the same time, we knew that when we got (No. 1 ranking), it was late February, early March. We want to have it at the end of May.

Q: You are in the third week of being No. 1. Does your team have the thinking that as long as you take care of what you have to take care of, you’ll remain there?

A: We are just focused on each opponent. We go into each game with a similar mindset. We just know that if we play our game, we can hang with anyone in the country.

Penn doubled up Princeton yesterday 14-7.

Oh, what a difference a year makes. 364 days after losing to Princeton at home in game that wasn’t even as close as the 17-8 score would indicate, Penn travelled to New Jersey and turned the tables on the Tigers, earning its first Ivy League win of the year, 14-7.

For the Quakers (4-3, 1-0 Ivy), Saturday’s game may have represented their most complete performance of the season. Highlighted by the play of Tyler Dunn and Simon Mathias, the offense was explosive, especially in the second half when the team scored nine goals.

Cornell fell short in their upset bid of Yale yesterday.

It was a tough one to swallow for Cornell men’s lacrosse. Taking the lead on seven different occasions, the home team had several chances to win. But down the stretch, the defending Ivy League champions held the edge in the game’s critical waning moments. In its first Ivy League game of the season, the Red fell to Yale, 13-11. Neither team trailed by more than two goals during the contest, and the game was tied with under five minutes remaining. Nonetheless, the underdogs were unable to finish the job. “It’s obviously a disappointing loss,” said interim head coach Peter Milliman. “We wanted that one very badly. I felt like we were competing well enough to deserve it, but we didn’t earn it at the end of the day.” Down by a goal with two minutes left on the clock, Cornell had the ball on the attack following a Yale timeout. This was the chance to even the score and at the very least send the game to overtime. Having notched six points on the day at that point, sophomore attack Jeff Teat naturally had the ball in the situation. But Teat, attempting an ill-advised pass across the field, turned the ball over to Yale’s Christopher Keating. Teat had seven turnovers in the game, comprising half his team’s giveaways.

UVA put up a valiant effort but fell to Notre Dame 9-7 yesterday.

Virginia’s conference woes continued on Saturday evening as the No. 9 Hoos were unable to top the No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, falling 9-7. Michael Kraus had four goals in the loss, and Dox Aitken added two. Mikey Wynne led the Irish with four of his own. The loss drops Virginia to 6-2 overall and 0-2 in the ACC, keeping the Hoos winless in conference since 2014. Goalies Griffin Thompson and Alex Rode combined for six saves and nine goals against and only faced 25 shots. Virginia won just 9-of-19 face offs (47%), and the Hoos turned over 15 times, including 11 in the second half. The Hoos got off to a slow start, letting Notre Dame get out to a 4-0 start behind two goals from Wynne. Kraus responded with two goals to halve Virginia’s deficit heading into the second quarter.

Connor Player of the Year candidate Kelly scored his 100th goal in Maryland’s 13-11 win over Villanova.

Senior Connor Kelly became just the second midfielder in Maryland’s illustrious history to score 100 career goals as the No. 2 Terps defeated No. 5 Villanova, 13-11, Saturday afternoon. Kelly joins the legendary Frank Urso (1973-76) as the only midfielders in program history to achieve the feat. He is the 14th Terrapin overall to reach the milestone. Kelly finished the day with the three goals and two assists, while sophomore Jared Bernhardt added four goals and a helper. Freshman Justin Shockey was 17-for-28 (61 percent) with nine ground balls and an assist at the faceoff dot.

Two New Jersey congressmen want to ban tourist helicopter rides in the aftermath of the recent crash in the Hudson.

Two New Jersey congressmen are calling for a ban on tourist helicopter flights over the New Jersey and New York region in the wake of a deadly crash that left five passengers dead. In a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Rep. Albio Sires and Rep. Donald M. Payne Jr. called on the agency’s acting administrator to ban tourist helicopter flights in the New York metropolitan region. The request comes in response to a tragic accident early Monday morning, when a tourist helicopter crashed into New York’s East River. Five people were killed. “We have previously and continuously expressed our concerns about the proliferation of these dangerous, and frankly unnecessary, tourist flights in and around our communities in New Jersey.

This most recent accident again highlights this point,” they said in the letter. “That is why we are asking that you exercise your authority... and ban tourist helicopter flights in the New Jersey and New York regions.”

Just another reason’s I’m #TeamSwift: Nun says Katy Perry has left her penniless.

Struggling with ill-health, including breast cancer, Sister Rita Callanan looks into her pantry for scraps of food and sees, yet again, only cereal. Her bank balance is zero, her healthcare cheque has bounced on more than one occasion and she’s not sure who’s going to foot the bill for her next round of cancer treatment. Now 80 years old, she scratches her head in bemusement as to how this has all happened. A few years ago, she had hundreds of thousands in the bank and was a paper millionaire.

As one of the few remaining sisters alive, who belong to the historic Order of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Los Angeles, her future was secure. Their historic convent sits in the uber trendy Los Angeles suburb of Los Feliz and is today worth in excess of £10 million. That is until Katy Perry came along. The 32-year-old singer tried to buy it without the nuns’ permission. She agreed a deal with the Royal Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles (RCA), headed by Archbishop Jose Gomez, who claims the convent is under its ownership and sold it to Perry for £10 million in July 2015.
