WILA Banner

Although there were no intra-WILA games last week, all four WILA teams played non-conference home games last week… COLORAOD MESA claimed perhaps the WILA’s most significant non-conference win, crushing Tampa (Fla.), 11-4 on Saturday (Apr. 20)… The Mavericks had dropped a 10-8 decision earlier in the week (Tuesday, Apr. 16) in St. Charles, Mo… Coming into the weekend, Tampa was ranked sixth in last week’s NCAA Division II South Regional Rankings… ADAMS STATE almost knocked off the same Spartan team, but fell 5-4 at home on Thursday (Apr. 18)… Meanwhile, NOTRE DAME DE NAMUR claimed its WILA-leading fourth non-conference win of the season, defeating in-state rival Whittier (Calif.) on Sunday (Apr. 21)… All four of the Argos’ wins this season have come by one goal… WILA Champion DOMINICAN also played Whittier, falling 9-8 on Friday (Apr. 19)… That loss snapped the Penguins’ school-record 5-game winning streak and prevented them from setting a new WILA mark for consecutive victories…

NCAA Lacrosse: Marquette Men’s Lacrosse (5-6) Tops Bellarmine 9-8 In Overtime On April 23

Marquette Men's Lacrosse vs Bellarmine

Conor Gately dodged past two defensemen and beat the Bellarmine goalie with his shot from just outside the crease two minutes into the first sudden-death overtime period to lift the Marquette men’s lacrosse team to a thrilling 9-8 victory over Bellarmine on Tuesday afternoon at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium.
Marquette has now won three straight, including a home win over Detroit on Saturday and a 14-6 triumph at High Point in the team’s last road contest on April 13.
Tuesday was most tightly contested matchup of the season thus far for the Golden Eagles (5-6), who led by as many as three goals, in a game that featured three different lead changes and five ties.
Gately’s game-winner came with the score knotted at 8-8 after the Knights (7-6) out-scored Marquette 5-2 in the second half. Bellarmine had registered back-to-back goals to open the fourth quarter to grab an 8-7 advantage, but MU’s Tyler Melnyk evened it up with a behind-the-back shot with three minutes remaining in regulation.
The two teams traded goals early in as the game as well. Henry Nelson scored with about a minute left in the opening stanza to give Marquette a 4-3 advantage, sparking a 3-0 run by the Golden Eagles to close the first half.
Bellarmine’s Michael Ward scored a man-up goal at the 5:30 mark of the first quarter to tie it up at 3-3. Marquette then held the Knights without a goal for the next 20 minutes, including a scoreless second quarter, to go into the locker room at halftime with a 6-3 lead.
Marquette goalie JJ Sagl managed to make nine stops between the pipes with both teams even at 34 shots apiece. Faceoff specialist K.C. Kennedy had a team-high six groundballs, including four groundballs on the first four faceoffs of the game.

NCAA Lacrosse: Ivy League Video Highlights Of Pennsylvania Men’s Lacrosse (7-4) 11-2 Win Over Dartmouth (3-10) On April 20

Dartmouth scored the first goal but after that it was all Penn. The Quakers went on to win 11-2 in this pivotal Ivy League matchup. Highlights are brought to you by Prodigy Launch.

With the win, the 18th-ranked Quakers finish their Ivy League season at 3-3; while the rest of the Ivy League finishes up conference play next weekend, Penn has the bye. So what did its win on Saturday do for its Ivy Tournament chances? It kept them alive.

Penn’s Ivy League Tournament hopes rest squarely on next Saturday’s Yale-Harvard game, which will face off at 2 p.m. at Harvard Stadium. If Yale wins, the Quakers are in the Tournament as the No. 3 or 4 seed (that would be determined by the outcome of the Cornell-Princeton game, also being played next Saturday); if Harvard beats the Bulldogs, however, the Quakers are out.

The two goals that Penn allowed on Saturday were the fewest allowed by the Quakers in a game since March 5, 2002 (an 11-2 win over Saint Joseph’s). The last time Penn held an Ivy League opponent to two goals? Try March 20, 1999 in a 7-2 win over Yale.
