Women's Lax v. Villanova 3-15-17

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. IMO we 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
