College Crosse Weekend Scorecard For Week 10
The No. 12 Ohio State’s men’s lacrosse team scored four of the final five goals, including one by sophomore attacker Jackson Reid, his fifth of the game, with 49 seconds left to come back and defeat No. 16 Johns Hopkins 14-13, earning its first Big Ten win this season. In a tale of two halves, the Buckeyes (8-2, 1-2 Big Ten) saw themselves down by five goals going into halftime, but the third quarter was where Ohio State began to find momentum. Five different Buckeyes helped to score seven goals in the third, including two from Reid and two from junior attacker Tre LeClaire. Ohio State still would take an 11-10 deficit into the final quarter before outscoring the Blue Jays 4-2.

Georgetown University’s men’s lacrosse team picked up its first win of the season over a nationally-ranked opponent with a 16-13 victory over No. 16/14 Villanova on Sunday afternoon in BIG EAST action. The Hoyas improve to 9-4 overall and even their league record to 2-2. Jake Carraway (Annapolis, Md. / St. Mary’s) led the Hoyas with five goals and a pair of assists, Daniel Bucaro (East Setauket, N.Y. / Ward Melville) added four goals and two assists while Lucas Wittenberg (Kennesaw, Ga. / Harrison / Mercer) chipped in three goals and three assists.
Days after a road loss to Syracuse, Cornell men’s lacrosse rebounded with a nonconference win, downing another high-profile squad to boost its national profile as it heads into the home stretch of Ivy League play. While Cornell’s identity — and primary source of success — is its high powered offense, its defense and goaltender allowed it to beat Notre Dame on the road, 11-9, on Sunday afternoon. Freshman goaltender Chayse Ierlan made 17 saves, weathering a game that saw the Red commit six penalties to the Irish’s one. Ierlan also made 17 stops at the Carrier Dome last week.
Despite a sluggish start, Maryland men’s lacrosse defeated No. 19 Rutgers 16-13 on the road Sunday night to move the Terps into a tie for the second spot in the Big Ten. Rutgers was the aggressor for most of the first 30 minutes, amassing a five-goal lead on the No. 3 Terps in the first half and taking a three-goal advantage into halftime. But Maryland put together the comeback it they needed to get back into it, outscoring Rutgers 10-4 in the second half to take the game by three scores. Jared Bernhardt had another hat trick, making it six straight games with at least three goals for the junior, putting him just one behind the program record. Bubba Fairman, Louis Dubick and Anthony DeMaio each had three scores of their own, with Logan Wisnauskas scoring two and dishing three assists. Adam Charmlabrides led the way in scoring for Rutgers, scoring four goals on six shots.
Providence looked good this weekend versus Marquette.
Drew Harm is still playing lacrosse at Albion College. Heck yes, he is. He’s going to keep playing until they pull him off the field and wheel him into an operating room and cut open his skull again and remove the tumor in his brain for the second time. “Drew Harm is an unbelievable kid,” Jacob DeCola, the Albion College lacrosse coach, said. “He’s got an unbelievable attitude. You would never know he’s about to go through a second round of brain surgery.”
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Forbes just released its accounting of the world’s billionaires for 2019, and 2,153 people made the cut. The number actually represents a decline, however: The list is down 55 billionaires from last year. Plus, the group collectively has less wealth than before. “A record 994, or 46 [percent], are poorer (relatively speaking) than they were last year,” Forbes wrote. In all, this year’s class of billionaires is worth $8.7 trillion, down $400 billion from 2018.
Tiger Woods is many things. He is foremost a golfer, but he’s also a son and a father and by pretty much every account of his well-documented career, a genius. I was reminded of that last part of his identity as he struck putts on the practice green situated beyond the 10th tee box before his final round on Sunday at Augusta National. He blinked hard and spoke softly to himself as his Bridgestone balls crested and dove at little white cups inset in these historic grounds. He was talking himself toward major championship No. 15 at a time when the leaders of this tournament should have been pouring coffee and reading the print newspaper (this is Augusta National, after all). In that moment, he was a genius finding his creative plane. I could have stood there watching all day.
