9-8 final.  Evil or Very Mad

One question, one observation.

1.  Why was Lafayette's goalie 10-15 yards out of the crease when Wagner scored its 9th goal with about 2:30 left?  If he decided to help double team, he wasn't in position to do it and no one else seemed to know that was the plan . . . and it was way too early to start doubling in a one goal game.

2.  I started watching during the 3rd quarter.  Lafayette had possession most of the time that I watched, but was insanely deliberate with the ball.  Even after taking possession with about 1:45 left and down 9-7, they only took three (maybe four) shots before scoring with 0:11 left.  There didn't seem to be much urgency, even at that stage.

Just looked at the stats.

1.  I wouldn't have guessed shots were almost even (38-36 Lafayette) . . . but I missed 60% of the game.

2.  Lafayette won the FO battle 14-7.  That's consistent with Lafayette dominating possession (again, from what I saw).

3.  Saves -- Lafayette 8, Wagner 17.  That is completely consistent with what I saw.  I saw Wagner score twice on what seemed like no more than 8 shots.  Meanwhile, Lafayette either missed the mark or got stoned over and over.

Eights - Wondering the same things.

Our offensive possessions reminded me of Canada v. USA (was it last year or 2 years ago when Canada basically stalled the entire game?).  We kept passing around perimeter, and passing, and passing and holding the ball.

Down 2, passing and passing and passing and holding the ball.  Seemingly very little pressure being applied to the D.  At least from video, very little sense of urgency offensively.

For the most part, I thought the D made some decent plays.  As Eights pointed out, big mistake at the end that looked caused by some confusion.

Hey, perhaps things will get easier!  Whoa boy - Loyola on 2/25.  Put on your big boy pants fellas.

Loyola is about 30 minutes from home for me.  I'm not sure if I'm enough of a glutton for punishment to make the trip.[/u]

Eights - Lucky for you, the game is in the friendly confines of Fisher Stadium.  You won't have to agonize over your decision to attend.

But, I will work on my positive vibes and imagine how great it will be when we knock off the Hounds.

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.


I'm not holding  you to this - and I doubt anyone else will either!

I don't think our funding is on par with virtually any of the teams we play - and FWIW I don't think Wagner has passed us by - it just appears the stars aligned nicely for them last Friday.

I will agree with this.  As I said above, I only saw the last 1/3 of the game, but Lafayette controlled possession through most of that time.  Our boys could have done more to put pressure on the defense, but there were also a few big saves by Wagner's goalie.  At the other end, Wagner converted almost every chance it had.
