Check out Chris’ recap of yesterday’s Syracuse vs. Army game for Troy Nunes.

After starting with a surprise upset loss to the Colgate Raiders, things might be finally rolling for the Syracuse Orange. Syracuse found their groove with a 4-0 run against the Army Black Knights and held off multiple rallies in a 10-8 win. Junior goaltender Drake Porter had a career-high 16-save performance, while sophomore FOGO Jake Phaup went 15-of-18 from the faceoff X with 11 ground balls.

Army got on the board first with Liam Davenport’s goal 2:44 into the game. That would be the team’s only lead. Syracuse would score seven of the next nine goals to eventually take a 7-3 lead with 9:46 left in the third quarter. But the Black Knights scored four of the next five goals to trim the ‘Cuse lead to a goal. But Jacob Buttermore’s second tally of the game on a loose ball in front gave the Orange a two-goal lead once again. Brendan Nichtern scored his lone goal to cut the lead in half, but David Lipka’s late score proved to be the dagger.

After a slow start Cornell’s offense woke up against Lehigh yesterday.

It wasn’t exactly pretty, but ugly or not, Cornell men’s lacrosse battled back on Sunday afternoon to win its home opener over Lehigh, 14-9, and improve to 2-0. “Tough start, but not entirely surprising consider how good I think [Lehigh] is, how hard they typically play,” said head coach Peter Milliman. “But guys responded, the most important thing we did was settle down defensively … and really build a victory.” The Mountain Hawks (1-3) opened up a 5-0 lead over Cornell (2-0) in the first quarter as the Red struggled to win faceoffs and control the ball in the offensive zone. As a result, Lehigh scorers fired shot after shot and a string of consecutive possessions in the early going of what looked like a blowout loss for Cornell. But a couple of goals in the first quarter, followed by a few more in the second set Cornell up to be down only 6-5 at halftime after such a disastrous start.

From way downtown .... BANG!!

Rutgers fought hard, but Loyola was too much for them on Saturday.

Last Saturday, the Rutgers men’s lacrosse team fell to No. 1 Loyola at Stadium by a final score of 13-7. The performance marks the second consecutive defeat for the No. 19 Scarlet Knights (2-2) and will likely result in a loss of their top-20 status in the national lacrosse rankings.

The Greyhounds (3-0) have become the No. 1 team in the country due to a loaded attacking unit, and they demonstrated their abilities against Rutgers. Despite some meaningful saves from fifth-year senior goalie Max Edelmann (12 saves on 25 shots), the Knights struggled to hold off Loyola with long stretches of possessions and shots.

Virginia came up to Jersey and beat Princeton in OT on Saturday.

After last Monday’s heartbreaking loss to No. 13 High Point, the No. 12 Virginia men’s lacrosse team bounced back with an overtime win over No. 19 Princeton Saturday at Class of 52 Stadium.

Virginia (2-2, 0-0 ACC) scored the opening goal after 2:30 through Junior midfielder Dox Aitken. Aitken –– the fastest midfielder in program history to reach 100 career points –– scored on a bounce shot to give the Cavaliers the early lead.

Fourth quarter explosion by Maryland helped push the Terps past Navy.

Before Saturday’s game against Navy, Maryland men’s lacrosse’s attack encountered a troubling trend in the late stages of games. In the fourth quarter of its first four contests, the offense had scored four goals total. The late-game scoring droughts haven’t caught up to the Terps in their 4-0 start to the year, surviving scares against Richmond and Penn while jumping out to leads and sustaining them against Bucknell and Colgate.

Polls should be out later today. Here are some media ballots.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Anyone coming to Philly for the Final Four should probably take notes: 13 of the best grilled cheese sandwiches in Philadelphia.

Food trends might come and go, but the phenomenon of the restaurant grilled cheese is one we hope never falls out of favor. Philly has not one, not two, but three grilled cheese-centric spots (plus a food truck) in addition to diners, pubs, and neighborhood hangouts who put their own spin on the classic comfort food. Here are some of our favorite places to crunch into a grilled cheese in Philly.

Meltkraft, Market East Nearly the entire menu at this Reading Terminal Market stall is grilled cheese, made with local wheels from New Jersey’s Valley Shepherd Creamery. The Somerset, made with Valley Shepherd’s Gruyère-style along with cured ham, tangy cornichons, and whole-grain mustard, is our go-to.

New flying cars don’t have much car.

For a booming postwar America, spilling out onto vast suburban tracts and enthralled with the possibilities of new technology, the flying car was an intriguing chimera. Attach the wings and propeller of a plane to the body of a car and drivers might pull out of their garage, motor to an open area and take off, leaving long commute times far below.

In time, of course, the flying car became a catchphrase for a future that never arrived. But could its time finally be at hand? No fewer than 70 companies are designing, building and testing this era’s version of the flying car. Just don’t expect much “car.” Thanks to advances in electric propulsion technology, the new designs look more like many-rotored helicopters. And while the early concepts were envisioned as personal transportation, the reality is more likely to be short-range flying taxi services in cities.
