Colorado College opened its five-game Spring Break schedule with victories over Wheaton College (9-4) and Babson College (7-2). With the score tied at 1-1 late in the second quarter, Jack Kreitler ignited the Tigers’ attack when he scored back-to-back goals during a 4-0 run that gave CC a lead it would not give up. Seven seconds after Kreitler’s second tally, sophomore midfielder Henri Halle grabbed a loose ball off the faceoff and found Tyler Allen to the left of the cage. The junior attackman struck for the Tigers’ fourth tally in a span of 3:19 and notched what proved to be the game-winning goal. Wheaton scored three times in the second half, but each time the Tigers answered with a goal of their own. The Lyons trimmed their deficit to three 36 seconds into the fourth quarter, but Halle put an end to any thoughts of a Wheaton comeback when he scored twice in a span 3:21 to give Colorado College an 8-3 lead with 2:10 to play. Halle tied his career highs with three goals, two assists and five points. CC made the most of its first appearance at one of the meccas of lacrosse, using five consecutive goals in the second quarter to post a 7-2 victory over Babson College on Saturday night at Johns Hopkins University. Freshman goaltender Chase Murphy stopped 14 shots, the third time this season he finished with double-digit saves. Colorado College puts its three-game winning streak on the line when it visits No. 7 Salisbury University on Wednesday night. The Tigers finish the road trip on Friday night at No. 3 Dickinson College.
Dallas (1-3, 1-0 SCAC) went 1-1 on the week. The Crusaders fell 15-7 to Huntingdon College on Tuesday afternoon in Montgomery, Ala. Freshman midfielder Matt Cyr not only tallied the first goal of his career, but ended with a hat trick in defeat. The tide turned for head coach Jeff Guy’s squad on Saturday afternoon in Irving, Texas. Fueled by junior attack Tony Lemos’ 10 points (seven goals, three assists), Dallas prevailed 16-8 over Centenary College of Louisiana in their conference opener. Freshman goalkeeper Ryan Murphy registered 15 saves in victory. Dallas hosts Southwestern University on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Southwestern took to the East coast for spring break to play two games, one versus Shenandoah University and Marymount University (Va.). Pirates dropped the first game 7-3 with junior midfielder Tyler Downing scoring two goals and senior Midfielder Elliot Kelly scoring one goal. The Pirates then lost to Marymount University 13-6. The attack duo of Jamie Long and Austin Fox both combined for two goals and one assist. Junior Midfielder Jeremy Tufnell added a goal and junior attack Carter Cowan also added a goal.

NCAA Lacrosse: Latest IWLCA Coaches Poll Ranks Maryland Women’s Lacrosse #1 Followed By Florida, North Carolina, Northwestern And Syracuse


Louisville enters at No. 20, joining Syracuse, Notre Dame, Georgetown and Loyola, which remains ranked despite losing three straight.
Who’s Hot?
Cornell (+4): The Big Red stand at 6-0 but will face its toughest test yet on Wednesday at North Carolina
Who’s Not?
Loyola (Md.) (-5): The Greyhounds are reeling, having dropped three in a row and losing two one-goal games last week to unranked Delaware and then-unranked James Madison.
Penn St. (-4): A mid-week, triple overtime loss to Cornell sent the Nittany Lions down the poll.

MCLA Lacrosse: March 19 Poll Ranks Colorado State Men’s Lacrosse #1 Followed By Stanford, Colorado, Arizona State And Chapman


With BYU taking its first loss of the season, Stanford bumped up a spot and took over the wingman role next to Colorado State at the top of the charts, even garnering a first place vote for the first time this spring. Colorado, however, is hot on the Cardinal’s heels after subduing UC Santa Barbara on Friday night.
There should be some movement next week after No. 5 Chapman makes the trip out to face No. 1 Colorado State and No. 3 Colorado in back-to-back games.
Who’s Hot
Grand Canyon (+3): Solid weekend for the upstart ‘Lopes. They spooked BYU in a one-goal loss and then squeezed past Davenport and Minnesota.
Sonoma State (+3): The Seawolves get a residual bump for the Texas win, but face a stern test on the East Coast swing this week.
Who’s Not
Minnesota-Duluth (-5): The Bulldogs tumble out of the Top 10 after losses to Michigan State and Colorado State, the last of which was a shutout.
Brigham Young (-4): It was a challenging trip to the desert for the Cougars with a one-goal win over GCU and a loss to Arizona State.
Buffalo (Out): It’s been a steady decline for the Bulls, but they could hop right back into the mix with a pair of ranked opponents this weekend.
