Hit us up and put “D3 Lacrosse” in the subject line to get on our radar.
We’ll start off with some of the big story lines, because that’s the way this thing works.
Cortland – Ithaca was classic. Cortland might be looking like one of the top teams right now, but that didn’t stop their game with then #18 Ithaca from going to OT. In the end, Zach Hopps, a freshman out of Akwesasne, gave Cortland the 9-8 win at home on a snowy field with an unassisted goal. Never bad to have first year players scoring big goals like that.
How good is Dickinson’s 7-0 start? It’s never bad to be undefeated, but with only one win against a Top 20 team (Cabrini 12-6), the Red Devils aren’t a lock to stay perfect. The teams that have beaten have a combined record of 29-26. Big games against Ursinus, Gettysburg, and WAC are rapidly approaching.
Middlebury is 5-0 with solid wins over Wesleyan (7-6) and Conn (11-4). The teams they have beat have a combined record of 15-15 so it’s hard to say Midd is back, but it’s also hard to say they aren’t. The Panthers are definitely looking up again after a couple of suspect seasons.
Oh, Plattsburgh. After knocking off Conn College in Baltimore, Plattsburgh was looking like a serious dark horse for 2013… and then they took a loss to Mary Washington, and the doubters came back… but here is a little tip: MW is actually pretty good this year! Sitting at 6-2, they have solid wins overs Goucher, Whittier, and Christopher Newport, and are playing very competitive games. Watch both of these teams: Plattsburgh and Mary Washington, moving forward.
Oswego – Ithaca is a big game? Ithaca is obviously a team worthy of Top 20 consideration, and is moving up in the world. This week the play Oswego, who sits at 4-0. This one should tell us a lot more about of these teams.
