Albany won a thriller yesterday over Denver.
The Albany Great Danes aren’t like any other team. They’re a fun-loving group of players and coaches that relaxed and don’t get angry with each other.
And it showed during their press conference after a 15-13 win over the Denver Pioneers at Shuart Stadium in front of 6,486 fans that withstood the rain. TD Ierlan, Tehoka Nanticoke, Connor Fields, Troy Reh, and head coach Scott Marr were once again relaxed and had fun right from the start.
It’s been part of their culture since Marr arrived to what he called “God’s Country” back in 2001. And recently, it’s come with talented players such as the Thompson’s, Fields, and Nanticoke, along with others.
Albany came out of the gate firing on all cylinders. Ierlan won the game’s first three face-offs, which ended up leading to three Albany goals. Denver ended up taking a one-goal lead early in the second quarter, but the Great Danes went on a 4-0 run to counter, including a buzzer-beating goal by Nanticoke before halftime.

The Yale Bulldogs are going to the Final Four after defeating Loyola yesterday 8-5.
28 years ago was the last time the Yale Bulldogs reached Championship Weekend. None of the current players on this year’s Yale team were born, and Loyola Greyhounds head coach Charley Toomey was their goalie.
Fast forward to today in a rainy Shuart Stadium on the campus of Hofstra University where the Bulldogs turned on their defense en route to an 8-5 victory over Loyola.
After an offensive first quarter where the Bulldogs led 5-3, Yale’s defense locked all windows and doors in the final 45 minutes, allowing two goals in the final three quarters. The Elis also didn’t let Loyola score for 33:43 of gametime, spanning from the second quarter until the fourth.
Ben Reeves led Yale in scoring with a trio of goals and assists. His six points gives him 102 points on the season, breaking the program’s single-season points record set by Jason O’Neill in 1990 when he had 99 points. Jackson Morrill recorded three assists, and John Daniggelis scored twice.

Shout out to Ryan who braved the elements yesterday and sat with the People in the stands instead of in the press box with the rest of the media elite.

Chris and I interviewed Caroline Darney in this really fun podcast we taped earlier this week.
Welcome to another Untitled Project on the College Crossecast Network. In this episode Chris and I interview Caroline Darney, College League Manager here at SBNation, contributor at Streaking The Lawn, and former BALLER as you’ll find out about in this episode.
In this show we talk about Caroline’s background, growing up around the world, learning how to fly, her time with the Navy, trying out for UVA women’s lacrosse team, and lots more. Caroline also has lots of great takes about the 2018 season, this year’s UVA team, and her top five Marvel movies.
My Mainland Mustangs advanced to the South Jersey Group III Semifinals in lacrosse yesterday!
Vincent Giunta was not going to allow his senior season to end Saturday. That motivation spoke for itself in the stat sheet. Giunta scored five goals and had two assists for the third-seeded Mainland Regional High School boys lacrosse team in its 13-7 victory over the sixth seed Jackson Memorial in a South Jersey Group III quarterfinal at Egg Harbor Township High School.
The 18-year-old midfielder from Somers Point had the confidence and demeanor expected from any upperclassman in the postseason. And that’s why the Mustangs, No. 4 in The Press Elite 11, advanced to the semifinals at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday against No. 2-seeded Shawnee, which beat Toms River East 12-2. Mainland lost to the Renegades last season in the sectional semifinals.

All Cornell wants is one more week.
Since Cornell men’s lacrosse was playing Brown in the Ivy League tournament semifinal two weekends ago, it has been playing for its season. Each game since then could have been the Red’s last. Since preparing for that game, Cornell (13-4, 6-2 Ivy) has taken on a mindset to breed the success that it has cultivated: win one more game, earn the chance to play another. And this week it will do that once more. “We want to spend more time together,” said junior attack Clarke Petterson. “What we’ve talked about is just enjoying the moment of every game pretty much since that Brown game.” If unseeded Cornell is able to stun the world of college lacrosse and knock of top-seeded Maryland (13-3, 5-2 Big Ten) on Sunday, it will earn one more week together — exactly one more week, in fact. The Red is just one win away from reaching Championship Weekend, a place the program has not been since 2013. “We, pretty consistently, have been playing some of the top teams,” said interim head coach Peter Milliman. “I don’t think the confidence has ever been an issue for us. I think we’ve always known that we can compete with the best teams.”
Once again, the state of New Jersey saves the world: Swax Lax exporting soft lacrosse balls worldwide from NJ.
Janet Holdsworth hadn’t heard of Swax Lax when she first saw the brightly colored soft lacrosse balls displayed near the cash register at Universal Lacrosse in Randolph. Holdsworth picked one up and tossed it around to see what it felt like.
When Holdsworth became the lacrosse coach at Villa Walsh a couple of years ago, athletic director Jennifer Fleury gave her a bagful of hot pink Swax Lax for indoor practice. A lifelong field hockey and lacrosse player, Holdsworth wondered, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Holdsworth helped introduce lacrosse to Minnesota back in 1996, teaching the sport with whatever equipment and space was available. Swax Lax would have simplified the process, allowing realistic training indoors — without fear of damage or injury.
Swax Lax founder Laura Gump had a similar experience with her own daughter. Gump was part of the first Summit High School girls lacrosse team in 1981, and went on to play at the University of Rochester and in West London.
Really nice article about MD’s Austin Henningsen.
After each faceoff, Maryland men’s lacrosse faceoff specialist Austin Henningsen sprints to the sideline, where assistant coach Tyler Barbarich greets him with an iPad. Henningsen examines the technique his opponent used and receives a frame-by-frame analysis of his technique.
The instant feedback has proven valuable for Henningsen, who has thrived coming off the bench for coach John Tillman’s team this season. At times, it’s difficult for Henningsen and the Terps’ other specialists to watch everything happening on the field, he said. Reviewing each faceoff on the sideline enables the unit to quickly make adjustments.
The technology has enabled Henningsen to have success whenever he’s called upon, which has been more often recently due to the struggles of freshman Justin Shockey. Barbarich provides immediate feedback to each of Maryland’s faceoff specialists, but it’s been particularly useful for Henningsen, who is challenged to remain involved in the game without knowing when he’ll be used.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Shore towns are about to see a population explosion for the summer.
They’re coming. Or they might very well be you, much to the chagrin of the Jersey Shore’s year-round residents. With Memorial Day right around the corner, beach season is upon us, and thousands upon thousands will soon begin their annual migration to New Jersey’s illustrious white sand beaches. In many places, this will mean an explosion in population, in some cases several magnitudes above what exists from October to April. NJ Advance Media examined Census data to see which towns and counties see the biggest boost to their population during the summer months, with some caveats you can read about below.
Everyone was at Prince Harry & Meghan Markele’s wedding yesterday.
George and Amal Clooney and David and Victoria Beckham were among the global A-list celebrities who turned the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle into a Hollywood event this afternoon. Sir Elton John, wearing pink glasses, was spotted leaving St George’s Chapel, after he was seen warmly embracing David and Victoria Beckham and singer James Blunt. Filmstars Idris Elba and Tom Hardy, as well as US TV host Oprah Winfrey, were also among the celebrities to attend the ceremony at St George’s Chapel this morning. Elba is a former beneficiary of The Prince’s Trust and was given a life-changing grant by the charity which helped him escape gang culture where he grew up in Hackney, East London, and pursue his acting dream.
