Friday, February 17 at Hamline Field on Staten Island, at 4:00 PM, visiting the Wagner Seahawks. The game (supposedly) will be streamed on NEC Front Row, here:

http://necfrontrow.com/webcast.php/WC-4163/

The stream has yet to be announced "officially" by Wagner MLax but there's no reason I can see why it shouldn't come through. NEC Front Row typically is quite reliable.

I'm going with the notion that the Pards opener was just a hiccup. I'm clearing my calendar to watch this game. I want to see the speed, the athleticism and the pure talent that Lafayette MLax been touting for several years, beginning with Jim Rogalski's first recruiting class. It's all supposed to be in place now and it's going to be put on display for us to enjoy. We'll be watching.

Will also be watching.  Must take care of business here or we are facing another very long season.  Wagner is a team we should put away early and keep foot on gas until finish.

Wagner lost 14-13 in 3OT last Saturday to Manhattan, a perennial MAAC doormat that they beat 15-8 last year. So I don't know if there's such a thing as a "must win" in February, but this would be about as close as it gets if you have any sort of expectations for the Leopards this spring.

Well, if truth be told, last year's not-so-good Pards beat Wagner 12-7, and the year before that the not-so-good Pards beat the Seahawks 10-5. This season I'm hoping for dominance. I suppose I'll shrug off equipoise but I'll go ballistic if there's regression. Mad


EDIT - Recent history vs. Wagner:
    2016 12-7 Win
    2015 10-5 Win
    2013 13-9 Win
    2012 19-2 Win
    2011 16-8 Win
    2010 15-4 Win
    2009 15-4 Win
    2008 16-4 Win
    2007 16-4 Win
    2006 14-5 Win
    2005 7-8 Loss (OT)
    2004 8-4 Win
    2003 11-5 Win
    2002 15-3 Win
For those keeping score at home, that's 187 goals for and 72 goals against, since 2002. (In 2005 - the year of the only loss to Wagner - we actually beat Colgate!)

Kinda puts "must win" in perspective, dontcha think? Rolling Eyes

Also - if one of you wiseguys suggests I go back and do the FOGO stats for all those games, I'll quit. Laughing


EDIT - Couldn't resist - Pards won the FOGO battle 11 of 19 in the only loss in 2005. So there. (Statistically we should've killed in that game.)

Bogie - What, no GB's??

I promised someone I would help string nets after work, but I see the NEC has an IPhone App.  Looking forward to catching some of the game and hoping, like everyone else, to see this group succeed.

Some wins this spring would sure be nice.  Good to see the women off and running.

GoLeopards has no mention WHATSOEVER of this afternoon's MLax game, other than a one-line notation on the schedule that the game exits. At least they're being consistent, I suppose.

Seriously, folks . . . how much effort would it take to mention that the game will be streamed (via NEC Front Row) here:

http://necfrontrow.com/webcast.php/WC-4163/

or that Wagner will provide Live Stats here:

http://www.sidearmstats.com/wagner/mlax/

Is this the AD's way of trying to pretending that Lafayette College Men's Lacrosse doesn't exist (with the hope that it will go away)? Confused

OK, so beating Notre Dame 10-2 in baseball this afternoon is a much bigger deal than playing Wagner in MLax, but still . . . .  Wink

O playing much tighter to the crease. I like it. Clears no longer are ugly.

That said, Pards just went down 0-1.

1-1 at the end of the first quarter. I wouldn't be worried about Wagner's possession time advantage if the Pards were landing a few of their shots. But they're not.

Also, "playing with confidence" is not the same thing as passing the ball to an open space on the field and expecting a teammate to appear miraculously to catch it. It doesn't work that way.

The Pards sort of "look better" but in truth Wagner is playing us straight up. It's very quickly starting to look like the same ol', same ol'.

In years past the Pards have dominated Wagner. Now they're struggling just to match the Seahawks.

Wagner now is turning simple shots into goals and making it look routine. This game will come down to 1-2 goals.  

I will give the Leopards this, though - they appear to be working much, much harder at it than the Seahawks.

Only looking at stats would make it look like we should be winning - but we have only 2 saves on 7 shots.....sun in eyes?

Cant get NEC feed.

It's halftime. The Pards are losing to Wagner College. I'm going to stop watching this game now because I just cannot bear it any longer.

If the score ends up the way I think it's going to end up, I promise all of you I will never, ever again post anything on this board about Lafayette College Men's Lacrosse. It would be a complete waste of everybody's time.

Poor shot selection by Pards.

Same 9:00 left.  Wagner's goalie has made too many really nice saves while I have been watching.  Lafayette has had almost all of the possession.[/i]

8-7 bad guys, 3:44 left.  Big FO coming.

Wagner wins the FO on a weird sideline scramble.
