Richmond held on last night for their first win of the year with a 13-11 victory over Marist. Here is the box score for the game and here is Richmond’s recap of the game.
The 19th-ranked University of Richmond men’s lacrosse team used a strong fourth quarter to notch its first win of the 2020 season on a cold Friday night at Robins Stadium as the Spiders defeated the defending Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion Marist Red Foxes 13-11. The Spiders out-scored Marist 5-2 in the fourth quarter, including four-straight in the opening 4:25 of the period to break open the tied contest.
Another excellent post by the great Ed Lee of the Baltimore Sun: A suspension pushed Towson’s Jon Mazza away from lacrosse. His family, teammates and coaches brought him back.
Just seconds after scoring a goal with 1:12 left in the second quarter of Saturday’s 15-7 loss to then-No. 13 Johns Hopkins, Towson men’s lacrosse attackman Jon Mazza turned and began to point and shout toward a section of the stands adjacent to Homewood Field.
Late Oregon men’s lacrosse head coach Charlie Jackson was honored during halftime of the Oregon-UCLA women’s basketball game.
Check out Anonymous Eagle’s preview post of today’s Marquette vs. Jacksonville game.
And now, for a fun game I like to call “It’s Only Two Games, BUT.....” And yes, I’m stealing this from JE Skeets and the guys at No Dunks. It’s Only Two Games, BUT..... I think two games is about time that we start to take a look at what kind of changes we’re seeing with Marquette Golden Eagles men’s lacrosse under Andrew Stimmel.

From Bill Wagner of the Capital Gazette: Richie Meade returns to Annapolis for first time since being ousted as Navy men’s lacrosse coach.
Richie Meade spent 17 seasons stalking the sidelines at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. On Saturday, Meade will be treading the turf of Jack Stephens Field once again — an occurrence no one would ever have envisioned nine years ago.
SAD!!: Trussville City School system denies Lacrosse parents’ request for use of football stadium.
The Trussville City School Board of Education responded to a request by the Trussville lacrosse teams after a years-long effort by the teams to use Husky Field for their home games. According to a letter from the BOE president Kathy Brown, dated Feb. 6, 2020, the BOE will not approve the boys or girls lacrosse team to use the stadium.
Canisius is going to look mighty fresh today versus Robert Morris.

The Utes are back at it this afternoon: Utah Lacrosse looks to bounce back against Air Force.
Utah will no doubt be looking to bounce back with a win this week against Air Force. The Falcons are also coming off a loss this last weekend. They were beaten by the University of Denver 13-7. Denver was ranked No. 9 going into the game, and they exerted their dominance, especially late in the competition.

US Lacrosse with a nice article on Army’s defense.
Joe Alberici won’t ascribe Army’s early defensive success in its first season without defenseman Johnny Surdick and goalie AJ Barretto as a mere continuation of the unit’s perennial strength. The identity, though, certainly doesn’t hurt.
Thanks for stopping before all the action begins. Games start in a few hours. Try to pace yourself this afternoon.
