College Crosse Weekend Scorecard For Week 12
Check out Chris’ post with every conference tournament coming up this week’s games.
The 2019 college lacrosse regular season concluded on Saturday. Conference tournament berths, seeds, and tournament hosts were all decided this weekend. For most teams, this is their chance to keep their seasons alive and end up in the NCAA Tournament. For some, it’s a chance to beef up their resumes in preparation for the big dance that starts in about two weeks. Nine conference tournaments get started this week, with all 10 conference champions being crowned on Saturday and Sunday (the ACC started their tournament this past weekend).
Blessed: UGA lacrosse player Tate Prezzano was discharged from the hospital after being shot last week during an armed robbery.
In a tweet, Tate Prezzano’s father, Dobbin Prezzano, announced the 22-year-old was discharged Saturday evening, nearly a week after he was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Tate has been discharged from the hospital! Our gratitude for the prayers and support from family, friends, medical teams, law enforcement, and so many we don't even know is indescribable. We are forever thankful. #tatetough #prezzanoproud #thankyou #doyoubelieveinmiracles pic.twitter.com/uHxM9fnT2j— Dobbin Prezzano (@DobbinPrezzano) April 28, 2019
Rutgers fell short this past weekend versus Penn State, but they’ll get another shot at the Nittany Lions on Thursday.
After a near-miss against the nation’s No. 1 team, Rutgers will turn right around and get another crack with its season on the line. Jack Kelly scored the game-winning goal with 40 seconds left as top-ranked Penn State survived a whale of an upset bid by the Scarlet Knights and held on for a 14-13 win on Saturday in State College to close out the regular season. But the two teams will see each other again soon.
Congrats to Mount St. Mary’s for winning the NEC regular season crown for the second time in program history.
Speaking of rematches, the Terps have plenty to learn from before they face the Blue Jays again in Jersey in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament.
After Johns Hopkins claimed a 16-11 victory over Maryland men’s lacrosse Saturday, both teams lined up opposite of each other for the presentation of “The Rivalry’s” crab-shaped trophy. The hardware is awarded to the winner of the regular season matchup, who keeps it until their next loss in the series. On their home field, the Terps were forced to watch the trophy change hands for the first time since 2015.
Holy Cross is pumped up for the Patriot League Tournament this week.
DOWN GOES BC! UNC beats Boston College to win the ACC Tournament championship. This was BC’s first loss of the season.
When North Carolina stepped on to the field in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts for the 2019 ACC women’s lacrosse championships, the Tar Heels knew all they needed to do was follow the same script they wrote last season. They needed to stay calm, patient and focused against the No. 1 undefeated Boston College Eagles, and they needed to remain persistent. Fighting for a conference title against the top-ranked team in the country is no easy task, but North Carolina had seen this team before.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Oh boy: Philadelphia Uber drivers to go on strike.
Uber drivers in Philadelphia are joining six other major cities in a strike. Drivers for the ride-sharing company plan to protest next month for half a day over poor working conditions and low pay. The BBC is reporting all drivers in participating cities will turn off the app for 12 hours on May 8th, which means no rides for customers during that time.
It’s tough on these New York streets.
Dropping a dime on trucks and buses that keep their engines running while parked is paying big bucks to some New Yorkers. The number of summonses issued for violating the city’s anti-idling law skyrocketed to 1,038 last year — up from just 24 in 2017 — following the creation of a reward program for ratting out offenders, The Post has learned. Meanwhile, the city Department of Environmental Protection has handed out nearly $20,000 to 13 whistleblowers who each got a 25 percent share of the fines generated by their tips, according to official data.
A spectacular movie by Arya Stark: How Arya Was Able to Kill the Night King on Game of Thrones.
Tonight, we finally saw the Great War between the living and the dead on Game of Thrones and it was over an hour of absolute stress. It didn’t seem possible, but after what looked like a hopeless battle with no end in sight, the Night King, leader of the White Walkers and wights, met his end. And it wasn’t the King in the North Jon Snow, former knight Jaime Lannister, an Unsullied soldier, or a Wildling warrior that killed the head White Walker; it was Arya Stark.
