The Utah Utes are the 14th team in our 2020 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the first independent team. Utah finished 5-10 overall in 2019, their first ever season as an NCAA varsity program. The Utes had quality wins over Air Force and Detroit Mercy, as well as a competitive game against Duke. Utah will also open play at their new on-campus stadium, Ute Field.

2/15 vs. Air Force: Early in 2019, we weren’t sure how Utah would be. Maybe 3 wins at best. And then all of a sudden, the Utes upset Air Force on the road in one of the more surprising results of the season. Only four goals were scored in the second half, all in the final quarter, with Utah scoring the last two.
After Dox Aitken opened the second half scoring to pull Virginia within a goal of the U.S. men’s national team, everything seemed ready for the game to turn the Cavaliers way. U.S. goalie Jack Concannon had other ideas.
On a day where familiar faces from Orange teams past returned to the Dome, it was the program’s newest member which highlighted the Orange Alumni Classic. Five-year-old Gaven Bort signed his NLI to join the Syracuse men’s lacrosse program alongside his parents, head coach John Desko and the entire team. Bort, who has cystic fibrosis and the Orange were paired through Team IMPACT. Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with local college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes.
At last, after a whirlwind travel schedule, Ryan Tucker can take a deep breath and soak it all in. His first pro championship playing Major League Lacrosse. The award he received from his teammates. His happiness at Norfolk Academy as a teacher and coach in two sports.
A Chicago program is introducing children to a sport some may not have never heard of. It is using lacrosse to teach them lessons both on and off the field. It is not an easy sport, or one you will pick up fast. “When I first started it was a struggle, a really big struggle,” said Derrick Brooks.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
The 28th annual Philadelphia Film Festival, which gets underway Thursday night, will feature prestige films destined for Oscar season, documentaries on a wide array of subjects, and a slate of foreign films from France, China, South Korea and numerous other parts of the world. But amid all of these unique stories from different places is a film that’s extremely local, and about a story that everyone in Philadelphia knows: The Eagles’ run to their first Super Bowl championship two years ago.
Two giant cranes were demolished with explosives on Sunday at the collapsed Hard Rock Hotel construction site in New Orleans where three people died earlier this month. The demolition was originally scheduled to occur on Friday, but high winds forced city officials to postpone the destruction multiple times.
THREAT NEUTRALIZED? New video shows the moment a series of controlled explosions took down two cranes at the site of last week’s deadly Hard Rock hotel collapse in New Orleans, with concerns the damage construction equipment could give way. https://t.co/IfeE8HHqJm pic.twitter.com/4FMJa6tVPu— World News Tonight (@ABCWorldNews) October 20, 2019
