BOSS Desko!!

Big third quarter fuels Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse to win over Princeton.

Third quarters have not been kind to the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team. Entering Saturday night’s game against No. 20 Princeton, the No. 18 Blue Jays had been outscored 8-4 in the third quarter, which trailed only their minus-5 goal differential in the fourth quarter this season. But it was the third quarter that proved to be the key to Johns Hopkins’ 16-9 rout of the visiting Tigers before an announced 1,692 at Homewood Field.

The victory was the first for the Blue Jays (2-2) since opening the season with a 14-6 thumping of Towson on Feb. 10. It was an especially welcome sight after a 13-11 loss to then-No. 12 North Carolina eight days earlier, and it occurred against a Princeton offense that had scored 15 goals in a three-goal loss to then-No. 6 Virginia on Feb. 24. “This is a good win against a good team,” Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala said. “That’s a very good offensive team. I watched them against Virginia, and they played really well to pout those numbers.”

Here’s another story on former lacrosse player and NFL QB prospect Kyle Lauletta.

Another factor, Lauletta is a huge lacrosse guy. He was a high school star who nearly chose lacrosse over football for his college career, and his father was also an All-American in high school prior to his Navy time. Belichick is also a huge lacrosse fan who is known to incorporate lacrosse strategies into football, and his daughter Amanda is the head women’s lacrosse coach at Holy Cross.

Big win for Penn State yesterday.

After dropping from the NCAA rankings after a loss at home to Robert Morris, Penn State men’s lacrosse (3-2) reasserted itself with a resounding upset victory over No. 13 Penn (2-2). A 7-0 run propelled the Nittany Lions to victory despite originally facing a 4-0 deficit in the second quarter.

How It Happened

Things looked grim for the Nittany Lions in the first quarter as Penn proved why it’s ranked No. 13. Despite getting to the Quakers’ net multiple times, tough defense prevented Penn State from converting. Meanwhile, Penn earned a quick 3-0 lead in the first quarter.

Four minutes into the second quarter, Penn struck again with another goal to make it a 4-0 game. But Penn State wasn’t about to go gently into the night. Faceoff ace Gerard Arceri was on fire the entire day, going 18-20 and giving the Lions plenty of possessions. Nixk Spillane took advantage, scoring Penn State’s first goal of the game. Just 41 seconds later, Mac O’Keefe slotted in another goal, and two minutes after that Dylan Foulds made it a 4-3 game. Arceri was able to get on the board too, scoring the key goal to tie things up. Another goal for O’Keefe and one for Foulds gave Penn State a 6-4 lead.

Connor Kelly dropped a dime on Notre Dame.

If Maryland senior midfielder Connor Kelly wins the 2018 Tewaaraton Award, given annually to college lacrosse’s most outstanding player, then his breakout performance was Saturday. On a cold, windy day before a crowd of about 4,100 at Maryland Stadium, Kelly turned in one of the Terps’ all-time great performances, finishing with 10 points, including seven assists, in No. 2 Maryland’s 12-10 win over No. 8 Notre Dame. It was special not just because Kelly was only the fourth player in Maryland history with 10 points in a game and the first since attackman Bob Boniello in 1979, but the points came against the Fighting Irish, who traditionally play some of the best defense in the sport.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Philly’s getting a build-your-own-pita spot.
Center City is getting another hummus and falafel concept. This time, Los Angeles-based Hummus Republic has set its sights on the city where Michael Solomonov’s fast-casual Dizengoff concept was born (followed by Hummusology in the Gayborhood and Hey Hummus near Rittenhouse). The Philly location will be the company’s third and its first expansion outside of southern California. The restaurant will open in the former Konditori Swedish Espresso Bar location at 115 South 18th Street. MSC Retail’s Vincent Stipo brokered the deal.

World/National News.

Someone spent $100M to develop a robot and looks like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie.

If the robot reminds you of something straight out of a Transformer’s movie, you’re not too far off. The company hired Hollywood designer, Vitaly Bulgarov, who actually worked on “Transformers Age of Extinction to craft the robot’s look. The Method-2 can mimic the arm, hand and finger movements of its pilot, but leg movements are left to the robot’s engineers. The entire robot is held up by two enormous chains since it doesn’t have the best balance.
