WLax vs. Colgate

Saturday afternoon, 4:00 PM, at Fisher.  PLN Stream.

The Maroon-White game will have concluded and they'll have time to line the field.  Clear and pleasant weather all day long.

Colgate is 5-7 (3-3 PL) with solid home wins vs. Lehigh, Bucknell and Metropolitan College.  They lost by a goal at Holy Cross and got clobbered at (now 13-1 but unranked) Navy.  

The 6-9 (2-5 PL) Pards have lost a few squeakers recently (Lehigh, Holy Cross, Villanova and Metro C) as their play has improved considerably.  Many lineup changes and solid freshman contribution have the Pardsvillians as winners of their last two (American and Bucknell).  They look strong and confident.

Four teams (Loyola, Navy, Metro C and Lehigh) have clinched PL tourney spots.  That leaves Holy Cross, Colgate, Lafayette and Bucknell vying for the last two.  Pards and Gate both hold the tie-breaker over Bucknell so realistically it's three teams - HC, Gate and Pards - for two spots (with HC holding the tie-breaker over both Gate and Pards).

So this is an absolute must win game for both teams in order to make the PL tourney cut.  It seems likely that one of these teams will make it and the other won't.  It's the final PL game of the season for both squads (both have OOC contests remaining).

I very much like our chances here with the way we've been playing over the last three weeks.

Added bonus - methinks that freshman middie Charlotte Rath has been hitting the gym just a little bit . . .

How can this be the last PL game for both if Colgate is 3-3 and we are 2-5. Colgate is still to play American. So likely, if they lose to us they beat American they end up up 3-5 tied with us we win tie breaker. We also win tie breaker with Bucknell and lose to Holy Cross. Would have liked a win ag HC.
You are right this team is better than their record. I'd love to see them in the playoffs.

You are correct and I am mistaken.  Colgate has yet to face American U.  American U. is winless in the PL and already is eliminated from the PL tourney by virtue of tiebreakers, I believe.

Tied at 16.  Going into OT.  What a game!

This team never really learned how to win.  No excuse for losing to Raiders in OT at home.  Very disappointing, and they losed White and Kleiber.

I thought that we played really well.  It's a that shame we didn't win - as we should have.  This team has a very bright future and could be a top 20 contender in the next few seasons because of excellent coaching and extraordinary young talent.

I have some more specific thoughts on the Colgate game that I'll post today or tomorrow - but almost everything I see looks positive.

I'm glad your are projecting "a very bright future" for this group.  For sure they had big problems on defense this year, and not only did they fail to hold leads in games they should have won but they couldn't score in the OTs in Patriot League games.  The loss of White and Kleiber is significant given the impact those two had on the games.

Maybe it is coaching - this coach does not have a sterling record although I guess it could be argued that she has turned the program arounds.

WINNING MATTERS
