BOSS Desko talked to the media about today’s game versus Army.
The visiting Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team used a 5-1 run midway through the second half to turn a 7-6 deficit into an 11-8 lead and the Blue Jays held off a late rally by 10th-ranked North Carolina to slip past the Tar Heels, 11-10, at muddy, rain-soaked Kenan Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Blue Jays led by three early, later trailed by two and then used the game-turning run to pick up their first win of the season. Ara Atayan’s third goal of the game with 5:04 left in the third quarter gave UNC the 7-6 lead, but the Blue Jays answered with two goals in an 88-second span late in the period to grab an 8-7 lead. Both goals were scored by senior Kyle Marr and both were assisted by junior Cole Williams; as it turned out, it was a lead the Blue Jays would never relinquish.

Jake, Ryan, & I previewed today’s games on our College Crossecast Week 3 Preview Show, which you can find here.
The calendar reads February, but the games this weekend give it a April or May feel to it. There’s also been some more fun in the midweek slate to go over. Welcome to another edition of COLLEGE CROSSECAST to help satisfy both needs.
I’m joined by Safe and Jake as we recap Tuesday’s slate of games that included Drexel knocking off Michigan in double overtime (:30). We then get you all set for this weekend’s games, filled with a ton of games that you’ll need to keep an eye on in the noon slot (14:11) and then some more like Penn State-Yale and Loyola-Rutgers after those wrap up (40:00) but sadly with no one listening to us about putting some games on at night. Sunday’s got some good ones as well, including the inevitable 10-9 Army-Syracuse game and the Rocky Mountain trio of Air Force, Denver, and Utah plus Cleveland State playing game two of their weekend event in Denver (52:30). Then we make our picks for this week’s pick ‘em contest (55:20) that will sure to backfire on us.
Penn State’s first big test ended in its first loss. The second-ranked Nittany Lions were unable to keep up with the defending national champion Yale, losing 14-13. Penn State will certainly take a dive in the rankings after this result. The Nittany Lions have a chance to rebound next week when they return home to face Penn. Gerard Arceri struggles For the first time this season, Penn State had to find its rhythm without the help of star faceoff specialist Gerard Arceri. The matchup between Arceri and Yale’s TD Ierlan was the focus of this game all week. Come gametime, Ierlan dominated. Arceri won just two faceoffs in the first half, both of which came due to faceoff violations by Ierlan.
It was a huge opportunity for Rutgers men’s lacrosse in hosting the top ranked team in the country in Loyola on Saturday. Unfortunately, leading scorer Kieran Mullins sat out due to an injury and the Scarlet Knights fell behind 6-2 at the end of the first quarter. While they competed hard and kept the score respectable against the Greyhounds, they lacked the firepower to keep it close. Loyola won the game 13-7.
Rutgers fell behind 10-3 in the third quarter before rattling off three straight goals, but couldn’t get any closer the rest of the way.
Both teams produced 40 shots and had 25 each on goal, but the Greyhounds simply found the back of the net more often. Loyola’s Jacob Stover has 18 saves while Max Edelmann of Rutgers made 12 in his second game back from injury.
Behind three goals from Ryan Lanchbury, Richmond led wire to wire and took down No. 6 Notre Dame 9-8 at Robins Stadium on Saturday. The Fighting Irish are the highest-ranked foe the Spiders have beaten in their six-year history. The win marks the fifth win over a nationally ranked opponent in program history, and the Spiders (3-1) have now won 11 straight games at home. UR jumped out to a three-goal lead within the first eight minutes of the game. Mitch Savoca cashed in the first score unassisted, while Lanchbury connected with the next two.

Maryland’s first line attack was dominant, totaling 11 goals and six assists to power No. 3 Maryland (5-0) to a 14-9 win over Navy (2-1) On Saturday. The 14 goals were a season-high for the Terps, led by a career-best five-goal output from senior Louis Dubick.
Sophomore Logan Wisnuaskas also turned in one of his best games as a Terp, finishing with a career-best eight points on three goals and five assists (career-high). Junior Jared Bernhardt also posted a hat trick, while senior goalie Danny Dolan made nine stops in the cage for his fifth win between the pipes this year.
Jakob Patterson had five goals and an assist, and goalie Nate Siekierski made a key save late in the game as the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team got its first win of the season by edging Drexel 13-12 on Saturday.
Siekierski was able to get in front of Marshal King’s shot from about 12 yards out with 10 seconds left to preserve the Great Danes’ lead.
“I thought our goaltender played outstanding,” UAlbany head coach Scott Marr said. “Nate was awesome. He made big saves at big times.”
The No. 16 Georgetown men’s lacrosse team (2-1) fell at home on Saturday afternoon to visitors No. 9 Towson (3-0) 14-8 at Cooper Field. After the Hoyas took the lead through senior attackman Daniel Bucaro’s 100th career goal, the Tigers took the lead at the end of the first quarter and would not trail again. Four straight Towson goals to open the fourth quarter put the game to rest and handed the Hoyas their first loss of the season.
Bucaro didn’t wait long Saturday in becoming the eight Hoya all-time to hit the century mark in goals, opening the scoring 2:44 in. The Tigers would respond just over a minute later, but sophomore midfielder Jack Elders’ goal restored the Hoya lead at 8:07. Towson would strike back again before seizing the lead on a man-up goal from senior attackman/midfielder Timmy Monahan as the first quarter ended 3-2 in favor of the visitors.
Highlighted by the play of some of the younger players on the roster, No. 10 Ohio State’s move to Ohio Stadium proved not to be too big, continuing its win streak to start the season with a 16-13 victory against Bucknell Saturday. This is the third straight season the Buckeyes have started 4-0.
Freshman attack Jack Myers, scored seven goals, the most a single player has scored in a game since 2013, and sophomore attack/midfielder Colby Smith added three goals with two assists in the win against the Bison.Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said this game was a launching point for the younger players on the roster. “I think it tells them there is more out there for them,” Nick Myers said. “I think at the end of the day, we did a lot of positive things, and there will be some growth opportunities.”
