Ohio State beat Michigan 8-5 yesterday.

Ohio State found its offensive stride in the first and third quarters and combined that with a stifling defensive effort that resulted in an 8-5 victory over No. 20 Michigan on Friday night at Ohio Stadium. With the win, the Buckeyes improve to 6-6 overall, 1-2 in the Big Ten, while the Wolverines fall to 7-5, 0-3.

Sophomore Tre Leclaire had a hat trick with three goals as Ohio State jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead and then went on a game-changing 4-1 run in the third quarter to put away the Wolverines. Aside from Leclaire’s big day, freshman Jackson Reid chipped in with a goal and two assists while Colby Smith, Jack Jasinski, Gale Thorpe and Lukas Buckley all found the back of the cage.

Bucknell moves to 6-1 in the Patriot League after waxing Lafayette last night.

The No. 12/11 Bucknell men’s lacrosse team will have a chance to play for at least a share of the Patriot League regular-season title next week against rival Lehigh after improving to 6-1 in league play with a 15-6 rout of Lafayette on Friday night at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium.

Reed Malas and Tom Smith led the Bison (10-3, 6-1 Patriot League) to their fifth-straight victory, each netting a career-best five goals. After spotting the Leopards (3-11, 0-7 Patriot League) an early 1-0 lead, they seized the momentum by scoring six unanswered goals to close the first quarter.

High Point turned a first quarter 3-1 deficit against VMI into a 16-7 win.

Despite falling behind 3-0 early, the High Point University men’s lacrosse team finished the game on a 16-4 run to earn a 16-7 Southern Conference victory over VMI on Friday night in Vert Stadium. The Panthers (4-7, 4-1) allowed the games first three goals to go behind 3-0. But once the HPU offense started clicking, the Keydets (2-8, 0-5) couldn’t find the answer. Senior Peyton Garrett snapped HPU’s 14-minute scoring drought to start the game before freshman Asher Nolting tallied five second-quarter points as the Purple & White built an 8-4 halftime lead.

Nice article about today’s big Army vs. Navy game.

One of the most popular and prominent rivalries in all of college athletics. Two prestigious academies battling against each other on a road that will eventually land them as teammates. Futures set aside, our country will come together to watch these units battle. Army-Navy. This time, on the lacrosse field. Saturday features the best of both world: Both men’s and women’s teams clashing in West Point, New York with nothing less than a victory on their minds.

Head coach Joe Amplo looks to push Marquette men’s lacrosse even higher.

Figuring out how to build on success is a problem any coach would gladly take. Marquette men’s lacrosse coach Joe Amplo didn’t think he’d be in that position so soon. Amplo helped start the program from scratch in 2011 and just seven years later the Golden Eagles are the two-time defending Big East tournament champions. Now the scrappy upstarts are trying to become one of nation’s elite teams.

The Golden Eagles (5-5) lost a heartbreaker to No. 14 Notre Dame, 7-6, on Wednesday but look to regroup against Providence on Saturday in their final regular-season home game this season at Valley Fields.

Sitting at your desk all day is a bad idea: Study suggests that sitting at your desk for too long may cause brain damage.

Sitting at a desk all day or spending hours watching television may damage the brain in a way which is known to increase the risk of dementia, a new study suggests. While researchers have known for some time that sedentary behaviour is bad for physical health, raising the risk of heart disease, diabetes and early death, it is the first study to show it could also influence mental wellbeing. Scientists at the University of California recruited 35 people aged between 45 and 65 and questioned them about how many hours per day they spent sitting down over the previous week.

Each then underwent a brain scan to specifically look an area known as the medial temporal lobe which is crucial to the formation of new memories. They found that people who reported more sitting had thinner brain structures. Although the researchers say they cannot say for sure that the sedentary behaviour is responsible for the thinning, they are now launching long term studies to find out if the link is causal.
