What a weekend of college lacrosse week #3 brought us. In this weeks recap show, we’re going to start by talking about how Virginia dismantled Syracuse, partly thanks to Petey LaSalla getting revenge on Phaup. Connor Shellenberger going off for 7 points didn’t hurt Virginia either.
The Georgetown defense proved it is every bit as good as advertised by holding off a late Notre Dame comeback bid and beating the Irish and taking their Soda Bread and Irish Stew. Owen McElroy made 24 saves on the day for the Hoyas, 11 of them coming in the 4th quarter to help secure the Gtown victory.
High Point and Navy did battle, and despite Navy holding a small lead through most of the game, Asher Nolting (3g, 5a) and company managed to battle back, take a late lead, hold off Navy’s attempts to re-take the lead and Michael Ippolito’s 4th goal of the second half ended up being the game winner for High Point.
In addition to all of these great games, we’ll also talk about Penn State waking up and defeating Yale, Richmond made a crazy comeback from the depths of hell to beat Towson in 3 overtimes, Duke got dropped by Penn in sudden death overtime, Cornell handled their face-off business in their win over Lehigh and much more.
