We have a great Wednesday night match-up with Yale going up against Bucknell tonight. The game is up in New Haven and begins at 7:00 P.M. You can watch the game via the Ivy League Network ($$). Here is the Live Stats page. This will be the first meeting between the two squads, but, given how good both teams are, we should get a really great game tonight. Additionally, shout out to both coaches, as I am sure it wasn’t easy scheduling a pretty major non-conference game in April, let alone a midweek one.
Lafayette 11, Monmouth 10: So this was unexpected. The Leopards, who lost their last eight games, upset the defending MAAC champions by a goal in New Jersey. The MAAC is really awful, and the Hawks showed how bad it was tonight. Lafayette jumped to a 5-2 lead with 8:18 left in the second quarter. But Bryce Wasserman took over and scored three straight and assisted on a fourth goal to give the Hawks a 6-5 lead in the third. The senior would finish with four goals in the loss. The game would eventually head to an 8-8 in the fourth before the Leopards went on a 3-0 run in the final quarter to get them to their final 11. Monmouth made things interesting, scoring two goals in a span of 22 seconds with under two minutes left. Freshman Bryce Hess scored four goals on six shots, all of them unassisted. Prior to the game, he scored five goals on the season. Conor Walters and Seth Obadia scored hat-tricks of their own.

Episode 18 of Across College Lacrosse is here! I recap the weekend as always before going into discussions about #HappyHourLacrosse and Sunday Night Lacrosse. That leads us into the impending arrival of ESPN+, which will stream college games from a ton of conferences, including the America East, Ivy League, MAAC, NEC, and SoCon, for $4.99 a month. Is this the future of the sport? Plus, midweek picks.

Here’s a great Boys Latin hype video.
Most area teams have been forced inside the last few days because of the weather, especially after Tuesday’s snowfall. But the white stuff didn’t deter the Sioux Falls lacrosse team. They had a practice scheduled for Tuesday night and decided to go ahead and get out on the field, since their first game is in 2 weeks. Head coach Corey Mitchell thought it would be fun for his team to get in some stick work while emphasizing fun. And what better way to have fun than in the snow!
Maryland men’s lacrosse coach John Tillman warned his team that No. 15 Michigan had a familiar face on its sideline and might be anticipating some of the Terps’ plays. In June, the Wolverines introduced former Terps associate head coach and defensive coordinator Kevin Conry as their head coach. Conry spent five seasons in College Park. So, despite the team’s numerous first-year contributors giving it a fresh look, Tillman ensured the Terps made some adjustments before their conference opener.
“The way the world is now, lacrosse is so small that you’re going to have familiar faces on the other side,” Tillman said. “You’re going to be facing them one way or another.” Tillman characterized the changes as “subtle tweaks.” Early in the game, the Wolverines made an adjustment on a ride, but the Terps were prepared and caught Michigan offside.
On Saturday, April 7, Notre Dame Athletics is offering a pre-game fan fest for all patrons attending the baseball, softball and men’s lacrosse games. The fan fest will take place in the baseball parking lot from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and feature local food trucks. In addition, a beer garden is planned (weather permitting). All fans at the beer garden must be 21 years of age or older.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Sick of stormy weather and bursts of April snow? Too bad, weather forecasters say, as we’re in for a rocky ride in the New Jersey region during the next several days and into the weekend.
We’re talking rain showers and possible thunderstorms on Wednesday. Nasty winds that could gust as high as 50 mph after the storms move out. And threats of snow -- yes, more April snow -- in parts of our region on Friday and Saturday.
”I definitely think we have a few more shots of snow,” said Sean Rowland, a meteorologist at the WeatherWorks forecasting company in Warren County. “I don’t think we’re completely done yet” with wintry weather in April.
Facebook is to blame for a drop in responsible owners adopting pets, Battersea Dogs and Cats home has said. The charity has warned owners are increasingly buying pets “on impulse” after spotting them on social media auction sites. The rise of unregulated online shopping for pets has sparked fears of backyard breeding and unethical treatment of cats and dogs. Battersea Dogs and Cats home has said it is struggling to rehome abandoned animals, as pets purchased “at the click of a mouse” are then dumped at rehoming centres when new owners realise they cannot cope with their new cat or dog’s needs.
