The No. 1 Penn State men’s lacrosse team took down No. 16 Johns Hopkins, 20-9, on Sunday afternoon to move to 11-1, and 4-0 in Big Ten play to earn a share of the 2019 Big Ten regular season title. Penn State saw sophomore Jack Kelly, who missed the last two games, come out on fire and recorded a career-best five points on four goals and assist. Redshirt junior Grant Ament recorded a team-best seven points, scoring a season-best four goals and added three assists.
As a ground ball skipped across the field behind Johns Hopkins’ net, Grant Ament slapped it between two defenders to an open Mac O’Keefe. O’Keefe decided against taking a shot of his own, deferring to Jack Kelly, who buried his second goal of the day. The score fueled an already hot Penn State team. It was the first goal of the second quarter that saw the Nittany Lions add four points to build a 9-4 lead heading into halftime, and it wasn’t the last time Kelly made an impact in the game.

College Crosse Weekend Scorecard For Week 11
We’re almost at the finishing line of the regular season and the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament is in sight. And given that our Easter Sundays were not that busy, we decided to hide one last egg for you to find to wrap up your weekend. Yep, consider SUNDAY NIGHT CROSSECAST as a way to make up for the lack of Sunday Night BTN Lacrosse.
I’m joined by Jake and Safe as we look back on this weekend and bring up all the hysteria of what’s to come because nobody has simple tiebreak procedures. After going through the scoreboard (1:04), we tackle Maryland-Ohio State (16:00), Towson-Delaware (25:54), Marquette-Duke (31:30), UNC-Notre Dame (34:13), and Mount St. Mary’s-Hobart (37:00). Cornell and Princeton winning means we could be in for a doozy scenario in the Ivy League (39:15), Loyola makes things simple in the Patriot League by beating Army (47:45), and then we wrap the recaps with Penn State beating Johns Hopkins 20-9 and make sense of the Big Ten’s tiebreaker mess (56:45). We also give you a bracketology update (1:01:00), the exclusive drop of our College Crosse Top 20 (1:21:41), and a quick peek at this week’s games (1:23:00).
The Massachusetts men’s lacrosse team defeated Fairfield in dominant fashion on Saturday, 17-8, behind five goals from Gabe Procyk and 21 saves from Sean Sconone, a personal best. The No. 15 ranked Minutemen (9-4, 3-1 Colonial Athletic Association) stormed their way to an early 7-0 lead a little over five minutes into the second quarter. UMass established its transition game early, with Isaac Paparo and Dan O’Brien each getting a shot on net within the first five minutes of the contest.
The Syracuse Orange men’s lacrosse team ended the regular season like they did the past three games. With a win. The Orange picked up a wire-to-wire 18-9 win over the Navy Midshipmen to finish the regular season with a 9-3 record. With Syracuse leading 6-5 with 7:52 left in the second quarter, the Orange went on a demolishing 7-0 run to put the game out of hand and giving some of their key contributors some rest prior to the ACC Championship. Stephen Rehfuss finished with a game-high seven points (2 Gs, 5 As) and helped the starting attack combine for 17 points on the afternoon. Bradley Voigt tallied five goals, while Nate Solomon racked up a pair of goals and a trio of assists. Drake Porter tied his career-high of 16 saves in the win.
Woof. That’s gotta hurt.
Busy weekend for the Quakers.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
The only municipality in our state that borders both New York and Pennsylvania is finally starting to feel a little bit more like New Jersey. Residents of rural Montague Township, population 3,753, no longer have a New York mailing address. High school students are no longer being bused across the border to Port Jervis. Mayor Richard Innella said girls interested in softball used to play on a team in Pennsylvania, but not anymore.
Potholes are a common complaint among drivers this time of year, but for one man, hitting a pothole may have actually saved his life. Gretna Fire and Rescue, outside of Omaha, Nebraska, was dispatched to help a 59-year-old man Monday whose heart was racing at work. The squad had a 20-minute drive to the emergency room, and at one point, the patient’s heart was beating at a rate of 200 beats per minute. During the 7-mile ride, the rig hit a pothole. Medics told the hospital, as relayed by the Omaha Scanner on Twitter, that the jolt of the pothole converted the patient’s racing heart to normal rhythms.
