The Cleveland State University lacrosse team never trailed as it built a sizeable lead and held on down the stretch to claim an 11-9 win over Detroit Mercy in its season finale Wednesday evening inside Krenzler Dome. With the win, the Vikings finished the campaign with an 8-7 mark, a winning record for the third-year program. Wednesday’s historic win came nearly two years to the day after another nighttime Krenzler Field win over Detroit Mercy in which the Vikings never trailed—that 2017 victory was the program’s first against a Division I opponent. Cleveland State had advantages in nearly every statistical category, including shots, shots on goal, ground balls, faceoffs won and clearing percentage while also having fewer turnovers.
We have one game today between North Carolina & Syracuse. Below are the details for tonight’s match-up and how to watch it online.
Game Day Details For April 25, 2019
Game Time: 6:00 PM EST
TV/Stream: ACCN Extra
Stats: IT’S UP!
Welcome to...April. For now. There’s 10 conferences and 10 conference tournaments. Nine of them will get started next weekend, when the calendar turns to May. The lone one that gets an early start is the ACC Championship, which introduces a new format this year. All five teams make it, with the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds playing in the opening round Thursday night before playing the top seed Saturday afternoon. The winners of the two semifinal matchups will meet the following Saturday at the site of the higher seed. Weird, but we’re gonna have to deal with it. And since there’s only five teams, the winner of the ACC Tournament doesn’t receive an automatic qualifier. It doesn’t hurt them, but it does hurt potential teams that are on the bubble.

In the first collegiate player draft for the Premier Lacrosse League — a six-team professional league set to debut this June — Maryland men’s lacrosse defender Curtis Corley and faceoff specialist Austin Henningsen were selected 12th and 19th, respectively. Now, having been drafted in two different professional lacrosse leagues, both players must decide whether to pursue an opportunity in the PLL or Major League Lacrosse if they continue with the sport after college.
When the timer in Syracuse lacrosse attack Bradley Voigt’s stomach went off at 11:30 p.m. on Monday, he knew it was time for what he likes to call his “second dinner.’’ The dining options at that hour were limited, so Voigt settled on Wendy’s. His food wingman had to be fellow attack Stephen Rehfuss. Rehfuss is always up for these sorts of things and was happy to tag along. Voigt polished off a large chocolate Frosty, an order of fries and two junior cheeseburgers.

Premier League Lacrosse, a new outdoor lacrosse competition with some famous-name financial backing, will play its championship game at Talen Energy Stadium on Sept. 21. “Philadelphia has been home to many final fours at the collegiate level, which is the gold standard for our game [below] the professional ranks,” said PLL co-founder Paul Rabil, a former player for the Philadelphia Wings. “Talen Energy is a beautiful venue.”

New York Waterway is unveiling plans to build a “marina style” ferry maintenance and refueling facility on the Hoboken waterfront in hopes of turning the tide in the public relations battle raging over the controversial proposal. Representatives of the company shared its plans for the new 8-acre facility at the former Union Dry Dock site during an editorial board meeting with The Jersey Journal on Wednesday, more than a month after the company presented the same proposal to officials from the state and the city during a private mediation in Trenton.
The only game in town at the box office this weekend is Avengers: Endgame — and then some. Marvel Studios and Disney’s superhero juggernaut is virtually assured of shattering records with a projected global launch of $850 to $900 million, if not more. That could include a potential all-time best of $270 million to $300 million in North America, where it unfurls in 4,600 theaters, the widest release ever.
