General Brown lacrosse player Luke Rogers led the Frontier League in scoring last season. As a co-captain this year, Rogers and his teammates are guarding against complacency after last season’s record-breaking year.
Sometimes Syracuse’s best offense doesn’t come from its offense. In five of the Orange’s seven games this season, SU has received a point from its defenders. Most recently, against Duke on March 25, Joe Gillis provided a goal and an assist. Without Gillis’ aggressive play — the helper off pushing up a ground ball and the tally off an Evan Molloy save rushed up field — SU may not have found itself eventual 12-11 winners in overtime.

Trying to guard against feeds to the crease in NCAA lacrosse has become like trying to defend against an Aaron Rodgers to Jared Cook 3rd down conversion play to the sidelines, or worse. If baseball is a game of inches then lacrosse is a game of nanoseconds.

By continuing to improve on both ends of the field, Duke did just that with two more easy victories, and now the Blue Devils will look to show they are true contenders this season.
Denver attackman Connor Cannizzaro is the semblance of a dying breed in college lacrosse. He can break down a defense. He can dictate the pace of a game. He can get his teammates in the right positions or thread a pass into the tightest holes of a zone defense. And oh, can he shoot.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Syracuse lacrosse midfielder Brendan Bomberry had a great view of his team's celebration after an overtime win against Johns Hopkins on Saturday.

When Syracuse needed a faceoff win against Johns Hopkins to start overtime last Saturday, it turned to the senior who’s delivered many times before.
Ben Williams, one of college lacrosse’s elite talents at the X, had won only 3-of-11 there in the second half as the Blue Jays clawed back from a four-goal SU run to take a late one-goal lead. But senior Nick Mariano tied the game at eight with 34 seconds left, and now Williams had a chance with a critical possession on the line against JHU’s Hunter Moreland: a player Williams’ father, David Williams, called his son’s “kryptonite.”
All Brendan Bomberry needs is a few inches. Give him a split-second to pick up a loose ball in a scrum or get his stick — any part of it, for any duration — on the ball and it’s too late. The room near the 18-foot diameter circle around the net is his safe haven, the fertile ground in which he completes both nonchalant darts and acrobatic maneuvers in traffic.
Emily Hawrsychuk idolizes the Syracuse greats who came before her. She spent days in her backyard shooting not at a net, but at the thick trunk of a tree that stood behind her house. She had pictures of SU legends in her room, reminders of their accomplishments and blueprints for her own path.
Tyler Phillips didn't waste any time. Just three games into the women's lacrosse season at Skidmore College, the senior midfielder from Marblehead tied, then broke the school's all-time record for goals.

At least two members of Team USA think the current state of recruiting in lacrosse is broken. Their logic is simple. It missed them.
Rob Pannell, who set the NCAA Division I scoring record at Cornell, could barely attract a single scholarship offer prior to his senior year.

ROCHESTER, NY (March 22, 2017): We caught up with midfielder, Kyle Denhoff over the weekend. We asked Kyle his thoughts on playing for Coach Soudan and playing for the Rochester Rattlers this coming season:
With new divisions come new rivalries, and new coaches. West Seneca West will enter the 2017 season with a new coach pacing the sidelines. While Sara Raniero is new to varsity lacrosse, she isn’t new to the West Seneca West family.
ITHACA, N.Y. – The Big Red men's lacrosse team held Colgate without a goal for a span of 24:47, during which time Christian Knight made six of his 15 saves on the day, as Cornell blew open a one-goal contest to roll to a 15-6 victory this evening at Schoellkopf Field.

You hear the folklore. The bustle and flow of New York in the height of the 60s. Oren was creating original artwork for the covers, living the artist’s life. People say he was friends with John Lennon (to what extent this is true I don’t know, but this nugget always enhances the imagery). I’d heard about his lacrosse publishing days many times. I’d just never been able to lay hands on an issue.

Founded in 1963, Stanford is home to one of the senior college lacrosse clubs in the country. But as many know, age doesn’t necessarily mean stability in the MCLA. Due to location, resources, and various other circumstances, coaching staff turnover can be a common trend. At Stanford, they seemed to have stability through the recent decade, but after the 2016 season, it was time to make a change. The Cardinal program went on the hunt and in November it would be graduate student, and MLL All-Star, Brian Karalunas (Jamesville-DeWitt) throwing his name in the ring for the gig.

“Somebody’s got to save us from ourselves.”
Those were the words of Drexel men’s lacrosse coach Brian Voelker, who worried about the growing trend of early recruiting, as quoted in The New York Times. It was published May 25, 2012, but college coaches have been looking for measures to slow early commitments since 2008.

If I’m going to make a ridiculous, over the top declaration like “2017 NJCAA Lacrosse is the BEST” in my title, I had better be able to back it up. Thankfully, I don’t have to back anything up at all this week, because the men on the field did all that and more. All I have to do is report the results, and get into a little bit of the nitty gritty. What a weekend!

Oneonta would stop the bleeding with a goal around the 14 minute mark, but Fisher tacked on two more to follow that.
Bill O’Brien didn’t play college lacrosse. He played football. A defensive end at Sacred Heart University, Bill even had several NFL tryouts after college before he decided to take a different route. In addition to his role with the Black Wolves, O’Brien works full-time as president and co-founder of Thompson Brothers Lacrosse.
I was kind of disappointed. No secret handshakes. No Gregorian chants. No pledge recited in unison. Not one guy was wearing his striped shirt . . .
I’ll admit that I had some ominous pictures in my head. I pictured a dark room… maybe flames dripping from the ceiling to the floor, or from the floor reaching up to the ceiling… surely Satan himself would be the guest speaker… disco music combined with rap . . .
After coaching for the most of the past 34 years, I really didn’t know what to expect from the “dark side.” After all, this was my first referees’ meeting.
