Lots of 2021 fall ball action to talk about including Syracuse vs Ohio State, Virginia taking on Lehigh, Johns Hopkins hosting Hobart and Richmond, High Point and Harvard did battle and much more.
Syracuse supposedly took down Ohio State, both both teams looked good. Rumors continue that we’ll see Tucker Dordevic get some time at attack for the Orange which many of us have been calling for since last season.
Virginia looked excellent as usual and Petey LaSalla scored once again off a face-off draw and stuck yet another incredible goal, back-handed. Kid is the most electric face-off guy to play since Trevor Baptiste, and Baptise hasn’t been gone all that long.
Asher Nolting looked like a cheat code for High Point per Inside Lacrosse, and Sam King, the freshman from Harvard had himself a day going for somewhere in the area of 5 goals and an assist. King did it all as did Nolting in their game, but looks like Harvard edged High Point by a goal or three.
For Hobart, the story was Ryan Archer who IL reported looked like he may have been the best player on the field at times. Anyone familiar with Hobart knows Archer is legit, but they are making it sound like he may have a Ryan Tierney level breakout season. Good luck to that kid, he’s the real deal.
More next week as I look through the interwebs for more fall ball news to report.
