2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #30 Sacred Heart Pioneers.

Season Summary After a disappointing end to the 2018 season, Sacred Heart looked to cash in on an NEC championship in 2019 with Max Tuttle and Joe Saggese back on offense. But it didn’t start that well for the Pioneers, losing three of their first four games of the season with the lone win coming against Furman. They gave up 12 goals to Boston University in the first half before allowing a 4-0 to Fairfield in the fourth quarter in a one-goal loss. Sacred Heart would lose three more games for the remainder of the season and would open up March with a four-game winning streak.

The Pioneers scored over 15 goals in three of those four games, with their 12-11 overtime win over Stony Brook being the odd game out. Sacred Heart made big second half runs in each game, including an 18-16 upset of defending NEC champion Robert Morris.

2019 Men’s College Lacrosse Year In Review: #31 Stony Brook Seawolves.

Season Summary The America East wasn’t all Albany in 2019. In fact, the Great Danes weren’t the dominant team in the conference for the first time in a long time. The fight to the top featured a handful of teams, but Stony Brook came out on top in the regular season.

The Seawolves began the season winning two of their first three games with close victories over Brown and Hofstra. But the team’s next two games against Marist and Sacred Heart were tough defeats. Stony Brook was even in three quarters of scoring with the Red Foxes except in the third quarter when Marist scored all five goals as part of a 6-0 run. And against the Pioneers, the Seawolves had a one-goal lead late before Sacred Heart tied it with 36 seconds left and won it in overtime. They did rebound with a one-goal win against Bryant thanks to a Chris Pickel goal with 16 seconds left in regulation.

Michael Kelly of the Daily Gazette on Syracuse losing lacrosse recruit Joey Carino to Albany football.

Carino, a 17-year-old from Somers who will be a senior this upcoming school year at Archbishop Stepinac High School, committed last week to play quarterback at UAlbany after initially offering a verbal commitment to Syracuse University to play men’s lacrosse. “With lacrosse, Syracuse had always been a dream of mine for forever — but I always wanted to play college football,” said the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Carino, who is a midfielder in lacrosse. “Albany had everything I wanted.”

Lacrosse gaining popularity in Wyoming Valley, PA.

When Aaron Caporuscio, a former lacrosse player at the University of Albany, moved his family to the Valley in 2004, he noticed a void when it came to the sport he loved. “We joked that if the kids were going to want to play lacrosse here, I was going to have to start my own team,” Caporuscio said

And a lacrosse player will lead them: Baking, lacrosse-playing center Keith Ismael key for Aztecs football in 2019.

Pigeon-hole Aztecs football center Keith Ismael at your own assumption-shaping risk. He’s a 6-3, 310-pound, all-Mountain West road grader. He’s also an overachiever in the kitchen, baking and shattering omelet expectations. Ismael flattens nose tackles, yet majors in international security and conflict resolution. He’s the size of a Buick, yet played high school lacrosse. He’s sweat and substance, underneath the same helmet.

Twenty minutes before the game even began, the stands were packed at Trent University’s Justin Chiu Stadium. And the fans kept pouring in. For the first 15 minutes they were treated to an intense, edge-of-your-seat battle between the two favorites at the 2019 World Lacrosse Women’s U19 World Championship. Canada won the first three draws of the game, but Ally Murphy set the early tone for the game.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

The new Four Seasons in Philly is gonna have some proper restaurants when it opens next week.

Philadelphia has experienced a culinary revival over the past two decades, making the transition from a place best known for its cheesesteaks and red-sauce Italian joints to a gastronomic destination boasting BYOBs with hyper-local menus, a thriving vegan scene, and the most outstanding restaurant in the country, according to the James Beard Foundation.

Adding to this momentum are two of the city’s most highly anticipated and ambitious restaurant openings, both set to debut the same day. On Aug. 12, the new Four Seasons Philadelphia—located inside the Comcast Technology Center—officially opens its doors.
