History '15 lost 11-13 LC final record 4-13
'14 lost 6-8 7-10
'11 won 14-13 3-13
'10 lost 6-11 3-14
'09 won 14-13 2-15

VU has one win so far and lost to Bucknell by 4 and Navy by 12. This game is winnable. They are not bigger (historically) or faster or more talented. IMOwe were better in '15 and lost.

I remember when Lafayette hosted an NCAA women's lacrosse tournament semifinal . . . then you look at the records above.

1988 -- the good old days.

Women's lacrosse also has Lafayette's most recent national championship (though it's not an "NCAA Championship"): http://www.goleopards.com/sports/...tt/womenslacrosseteam_198000.html

As for this year (and this week), Villanova lacrosse rates up there with Penn State basketball or Boston College volleyball... beating them is a better win on paper because of the school name than it is in reality. But a win over Nova is a win over Nova, and if we want to be relevant in the Patriot League, it's a win we should get, especially at home.

IMO anything less than a winning record would be a huge disappointment. To do that--have a strong chance at a winning record-- we must take care of business and that means winning Wednesday. Now, that doesn't mean we can't achieve loftier goals; but, first things first.
PL is tough and unpredictable. I'm thinking 7-2 after the Army game and then we'll see what happens.

+1.  I'd put a tenner on that bet.

Given the impending weather, I'm guessing the Nova game gets postponed.

Wouldn't it be terrific if we had a indoor facility/practice bubble at Metzgar? Cool

This ain't happening. 12-18 or possibly 24" of snow projected for the Lehigh Valley. unless a ton of weather forecasters are totally wrong, this won't take place.

WLax vs Nova @ Fisher postponed; also softball Thursday @ Coppin State, per GoLeopards.com.

Lightweights, I tell you. Why, back in my day, MLax and WLax would get out there with some shovels and . . . Laughing
