College Crosse News

Hobart beat St. Bonaventure 18-8 last night.

The nationally-ranked Hobart College lacrosse team picked up its sixth straight win, defeating St. Bonaventure University 18-8 under the lights on Boswell Field at David J Urick Stadium tonight. The Statesmen, who are No. 20 in the USILA poll and No. 19 in the Inside Lacrosse poll, scored eight straight goals during the first half and never looked back.

Junior Eric Holden led the charge for Hobart (8-1) with a game-high five points on four goals and an assist. Senior Koko Avedisian added a career-high four points on two goals and two assists. Four other Statesmen finished the night with three points, including senior Chris Aslanian, who scored twice and recorded the 86th assist of his career, the most by a Division I Statesman.

Harvard took down Albany 13-12 yesterday.

Harvard received hat tricks Kyle Anderson, Myles Hamm and Jeremy Magno, and used a 4-0 third-quarter run to defeat visiting UAlbany, 13-12, Wednesday night inside Harvard Stadium. The Crimson pocketed its season-best third straight win and improved to 5-1 over its last six games in the process. Harvard (5-4), which went into halftime tied at 5-5, let up a goal to open the third period, but answered with four unanswered strikes from four different players.

Penn’s four-game winning streak on the line versus the Bulldogs this weekend.

In a season already defined by fierce competition, Penn men’s lacrosse will face what may be its toughest opponent yet — the reigning national champion, No. 2 Yale, at home this Saturday. Despite a slow start to their season, the Quakers (4-3, 2-0 Ivy) have won their last four games, the most recent against No. 5 Cornell. “The key has just been improvement,” coach Mike Murphy said. “We’ve had players individually get better. We’ve had units get better. And we’ve improved our chemistry.”

Chaminade, St. Anthony’s ready to renew one of Long Island’s best lacrosse rivalries.

Chaminade vs. St. Anthony’s. It’s a rivalry that is so ingrained in the fabric of boys lacrosse on Long Island that some of the players involved in the current iteration have distinct memories of watching the drama unfold from the stands. “I’ve been going to Chaminade/St. Anthony’s championship games since, probably, fifth grade,” Chaminade attackman Thomas Rogan said. “So, to me, it’s the best rivalry in the entire country. There’s nothing better than playing against St. Anthony’s. It’s the coolest game.”

Lights, camera, action for UVA.

Here’s a nice article on Bates’ Matt Chlastawa.

The bruised heel and bruised ribs that held Matt Chlastawa out of practice Wednesday are the price he pays for being one of the top Division-III lacrosse players in the nation. The Bates College junior attack spent Wednesday the way he’d spent Monday and Tuesday, watching practice as the rest of the Bobcats prepared for Saturday’s home NESCAC game against Hamilton, their first conference tilt since Williams handed them their first NESCAC loss last Saturday. The quarterback of the 6-2 Bobcats (3-1 in NESCAC) high-speed attack just shrugs off the physical toll as part of the nature of the game. “It all depends on what the defense is throwing at us,” he said. “If I end up hanging behind the net, it’s good, but sometimes I have to dodge, sometimes I have to take a hit to take that extra step.”

Shout out to BU.

$200,000.00 returned to Canadian youth lacrosse association after funds were allegedly embezzled by a former treasurer. Mounties still investigating.

The Okotoks Raiders minor lacrosse association says it has recovered more than $200,000 in funds allegedly embezzled from the group by a former treasurer. In January of 2018, Postmedia reported on the suspected misappropriation $211,308 from the Okotoks Raiders Lacrosse Association, in the town about 50 kilometres south of Calgary. And while the association says nearly all the money has been recovered, Const. Mike Hibbs with the Alberta RCMP said Mounties are still investigating the matter and the file remains open.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Let ‘em hate: Bryce Harper voted most overrated player in MLB.

This year, according to one such poll — administered highly unscientifically, we’d like to add — from the Athletic, Major League Baseball apparently hates the Phillies. Bryce Harper, our very new, very rich superstar, was voted the most overrated player in the entire game, receiving 62 percent of the votes! (The next-closest player got only 4 percent of the total.) It’s not exactly surprising — what with Harper’s $300 million-plus contract.

How We Feeling?” asks Harvey Spevak. “One more round?” It’s just after 7 a.m. on a polar-vortexed winter morning in New York, and Spevak, the 54-year-old executive chairman and managing partner of Equinox Holdings LLC, is ready for his final training circuit of the day. As Equinox’s alpha, Spevak oversees the company’s entire portfolio: 99 Equinox Fitness clubs in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada, 91 SoulCycle studios, 81 Blink Fitness locations and the five high-end “E by Equinox” outposts, including this two-month-old Upper East Side space where he has just used a Hyperice Vyper 2.0 roller to send good vibrations into his lower back.
