Women's Lacrosse

According to the announcers on the broadcast, LC has #1 and #2 scorers in Patriot League  This team is a pleasure to watch.  Fast. skilled. (HC game was a thrashing. Another solid recruiting year and we're in business.) Some very close losses in the league.  I'm predicting a win against second-place Lehigh and a deep run in the playoffs.

I'd love to see LC make a deep run in the playoffs - as long as it's not at Bucknell's expense.   However it is going to be very tough for them to make the playoffs.   At a minimum, they will have to beat both Lehigh and Navy to have any shot.  And that probably won't be enough.  It is fairly likely that they will also have to beat Loyola, who currently is undefeated in PL play.

My mistake. I thought the top eight made it in.  Still look for us to give LU a battle

I guess it was a battle..a defensive one. Lehigh went on a run and we didn't respond, result is we have a tough road to the playoffs. I really though this team would do better this year. We lost games we should have won.

I thought we'd do better, I must say.  That stalling stuff in women's lax is amazing.  Lehigh scored those first two goals while we stood there almost dumbfounded after a couple of foul calls (as I recall).  Girls, be ready at all times! They seemed to keep it out of our top scorers' hands (smart).  While our goaltender is ok, they had a definite edge in the net.  First half around 7 saves (most were good ones) to our one at a point. First ten minutes of second half have killed this team in many games.  Up to the baseball team to break the streak now

Apparently next year there will be a 90 second shot clock...am I correct??

Announcer last night made it sound like that is a certainty.

May help but when does clock start. If its only on ref's call like Men.wont be as effective.

Two things I find interesting regarding this team:

There's a Kirby on it.  Jane.  Lawrenceville's all-time highest scorer. Can't break into the starting lineup.   Her brother plays lacrosse at Harvard according to the bio.

#2 scorer in League freshman Emma Novick has a twin sister who has a bad knee injury and has missed the season.

Lehigh's physicality was a problem.

A 90-second shot clock was approved last year for the 2017 season.   It is the same as what has been proposed for the men, where the clock starts immediately when a team gains possession.   No referee judgement.
