Highlights from Cornell’s win over Towson.

Here’s an article on Cornell’s victory over Towson from The Cornell Daily Sun.

Cornell men’s lacrosse took down the nation’s top team Sunday afternoon, defeating No. 1 Towson 18-11 after coming up empty Friday night against No. 4 Penn State at the Crown Lacrosse Classic down south in Charlotte, N.C. The win gives the Red its fourth victory of the season and its first against a ranked opponent in 2019. Towson jumped out to an early 5-2 lead in the first quarter and it looked as if things might go downhill quickly — just as they did in the team’s 19-13 loss to No. 4 Penn State two days prior. With the best faceoff in the country, the Tigers seemed poised to run away with the game.

It was another OT win for the Cavs on Sunday.

Overtime wins are quickly becoming old hat for the Virginia men’s lacrosse team. With 1:02 left in sudden-death overtime Saturday at Klockner Stadium, Michael Kraus angled toward the goal with a running start. Mikey Herring, scanning the defense from behind Brown’s cage, found Kraus in stride and he buried a shot from beyond the orange arc that extends from the goalie’s circle to lift Virginia to a 14-13 win over the visiting Bears. It was Kraus’ fifth goal of the day and the Cavaliers’ third-straight overtime win.

The Utah Utes are on a three-game winning streak.

The win streak continues for the University of Utah lacrosse team, as they downed the Bellarmine University Knights, 10-9. The Utes (4-3) came into this game fresh off of another close, hard-fought win against Furman University, where they again came away with a one-goal win. The two games followed surprisingly similar scripts, as the Utes started hot and had to hold off a surging attack to escape from a late-game comeback attempt by their opponents. Luckily, the team has experience in such situations, and they were able to do just the same with the Knights.

Press conference after the Syracuse vs. Hopkins game.

Highlights from Syracuse vs. Hopkins.

Make sure you read Chris’ recap of the Syracuse vs. Hopkins game.

After a slow end in last week’s loss to the Virginia Cavaliers, the Syracuse Orange came out slow in their rivalry game against the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays. They were down 5-1 with 3:27 left in the opening quarter and it felt like another potential blowout from the Blue Jays. But ‘Cuse woke up and outscored Hopkins 13-5 for the rest of the game and took their first lead with 10:46 left in the game in a 14-10 win. After Jack Keogh gave the Blue Jays their fifth goal of the game, the Orange went on a 3-0 run from Brendan Curry, Bradley Voigt, and Stephen Rehfuss. Joey Epstein would end the run for Johns Hopkins, but Syracuse responded with Peter Dearth’s second of the afternoon and a Jamie Trimboli goal down the alley to tie the game at six.

Shout out to Aloha lacrosse.

For kids playing high school sports not sanctioned by the OSAA, it’s often an expensive venture. That’s what the Aloha High School lacrosse team has faced lately. Coaches and parents are often left footing the bill but they’ve have found a unique way to keep the team on the field. A creative promotional video and a GoFundMe page are helping buy sticks and pads for the team. “It’s just the parents organizing all of this -- the coaches and parents -- no funding from the school or any of that,” player Joe Funderburg said.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Would you pay $800 for a Gritty bobblehead?

On Thursday afternoon, a friend in L.A. sent me a photo of a three-foot-tall, $800 Gritty bobblehead, just to tell me that a three-foot-tall, $800 Gritty bobblehead exists. With that, my friends, we have officially reached Peak Gritty.

I mean, think of all the things a person could buy with $800. A soft pretzel every day for more than two years, for example. Several flights to Florida to get out of this hellish March weather. Or a few pairs of nice shoes. Or six of those really fancy $120 cheesesteaks and a nice bottle of wine at Barclay Prime. (Or for us millennials, a tiny dent in our student loans.) So many things!

World/National News

Tragic: Over 150 people are reported to have died in an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after takeoff.

A 36-year-old animal welfare campaigner and a polar expert on her way to tackle plastic pollution were among seven Britons killed in the Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday. The Boeing 737 Max 8 jet crashed within minutes of its take-off from Addis Ababa, losing and gaining speed dramatically in its final seconds after setting off for Nairobi. The crash on Sunday morning killed all 149 passengers -- including seven Britons, one Irishman and eight Americans - as well as eight crew members.
