College Crosse News

Hobart will host St. Bonaventure tonight, also at 7:00 PM. The game will be streamed on Hobart All Access and you can also follow along via the Live Stats.

Here are highlights from Hobart’s game versus Sacred Heart to get you ready for today’s game.

Princeton won a thriller yesterday over Denver in coach Bill Tierney’s first game back at Princeton since 2009.

The story before the game was all about Bill Tierney’s Princeton homecoming, returning to the site of the first six NCAA championships he won with the team with whom he’d won a seventh.

The current Princeton Tigers then honored Tierney’s legacy in the best possible way. They played hard. They played well. And when they couldn’t do either, they made up for it by playing tough.

In as thrilling a game as has ever been played on Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium, Princeton outlasted Tierney’s ninth-ranked Denver Pioneers 14-13. It was Tierney’s first game back since he left Princeton after the 2009 season to take over at Denver after he won 238 games, six NCAA championships and 14 Ivy League championships in 22 years with the Tigers.

Air Force kept it close for a little while, but the Yale Bulldogs were able to win out in the end 13-6.

The 10-man ride was a big factor in Yale increasing its win streak to six. The Bulldogs caused Air Force to fail on nine clears in a 13-6 non-league lacrosse victory at Reese Stadium. Yale, ranked No. 2 in the latest polls, never trailed tonight, but it took a little while to put away the pesky Falcons, who brought a three-game win streak to New Haven. The Elis had a 7-5 lead before reeling off six straight goals, one of which was the result of the defensive ride. Jackson Morrill, who was applying pressure in the Air Force end after an EMO turnover, jumped and got his stick on a pass from the Falcons’ goalie. The ball popped up in the air and then landed just outside the crease before rolling into the net.

A day in the lives of the UMass men’s lacrosse student managers.

Outside of the coaching staff whom they work for, few people are aware of their value to the Massachusetts men’s lacrosse program. The part that they play in the day-to-day operation of UMass men’s lacrosse is essential, but not the most glamorous. Throughout much of the school year, they adhere to the coaches’ needs, taking on much of the grunt work of the program while getting paid little to nothing. Their names are Jack Schille and Geof Kidger, and they are student assistants to UMass men’s lacrosse. To be more precise, they are the director and assistant director of operations, respectively. In plainer, more colloquial terms, they are the team’s managers.

Logan Wisnauskas is really good.

I concur: Jack Jasinski finds path to becoming crucial player for Ohio State.

Ohio State lacrosse senior midfielder Jack Jasinski is currently the top point scorer for the Buckeyes, but the Alabama native is focused on helping his teammates and changing the way people see lacrosse in his home state. Jasinski grew up in Birmingham, an area not known for lacrosse the way it is for football or basketball. His high school days weren’t normal due to him taking up the sport. “It was very, very different. I think there are only 13 high school teams in the whole state for lacrosse,” Jasinski said. Jasinski found lacrosse through his older brother, who decided to take up the sport while Jasinski was in the eighth grade. He was focused on baseball at the time, but decided to give lacrosse a chance.

Get your wind up, boys.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Don’t text and drive in the Garden State.

Police around New Jersey will be cracking down on texting behind the wheel and other distracted driving as part of an enforcement campaign in April. Lasting through April 21, officials said the “high visibility law enforcement initiative” will target drivers talking on handheld cell phones and texting. “This is clearly one of the most critical traffic safety issues that we face today,” New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety Director Eric Heitmann said in a statement.
