Holy Cross

Will be a tough matchup for the Leopards on Saturday. Holy Cross has some big wins and their strength is offense as they have a number of good scorers ( 5 with ten or more goals). Hopefully the team can come out strong on Legends Day. Will have to put up 10+ goals and get solid play on the defensive side. If Falcone can save 60% and the team can win 50% of faceoffs they will have a shot.

Pards won (nominally) 50% of the faceoffs vs. Monmouth against a kid who was .231 and had won only 3 faceoffs in his entire college career.

Holy Cross senior FOGO Tyler Purdue is 86-181 (.475) this season.

Bio for Holy Cross first-year Head Coach Judd Lattimore - worth reading in its entirety:

http://www.goholycross.com/sports/m-lacros/coaches/lattimore_judd

Explains much about the Crusaders' sudden success this year.  He didn't need four years to get "his" recruits.  He's done it with the guys who already were there.

Former Holy Cross coach did a nice job recruiting so Lattimore inherited a good roster.

Go Leopards - your due for a big win

I'd love to be proved wrong about Lafayette's prospects in this game.

Take #3 out of attack and put #23 in...you need a lefty in attack... Keep mid rotation short and we can win this game.. Obviously win FO and make great saves 😀

I still think we're going to need the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch to win this one, but . . . go pards!

I barely know a FOGO from a hoho but we look good. I may see my first win in years.
5-2 after 1.

Ball movement has been very good.  Nice unselfish play.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffin' glue.
5-5 at the half. Long drought and HC goal at :07

No ordinary facepalm would express my sentiments at this point.

Huge win!  First game all season where they played to their potential and put 4 Qs together.  Faceoffs a little better but need better wing play on the 50/50s GBs.  Play like this and there may be 2 more wins out there.

Wow.  HC fans are in shock.

Congrats to the Pards.  Improved, more focused offense this afternoon.

My notes for the game... #4 and #9 played awesome!! We dominated the midfield... Turnovers were kept to a minimum... Defense played solid especially #26 who is a ground ball machine... EMO looked poised and the FOGO was what a FOGO is supposed to do... Great job by #18... We should have made the switch earlier in the year...great win Boys!!!!
pards4ever

1st game the Pards skipped passes...look at the way the ball moved today... Keep it up guys!! High risk high reward

At halftime Cross fans were complaining about their goalie. I'm not a lacrosse maven but that didn't appear to be the problem. We just got more shots.

Well-deserved congrats to #26 Erik Cannon, PL Defensive Player of the Week.

Cannon has improved by leaps and bounds since the switch to full-time defense.
LeopardPride2013

Congratulations to Erik Cannon on Defensive Player of the Week and Ben Falcone as an honorable mention. Sands, Bock, Westby and Orazietti also had a great week.  Keep it going.
