Denver Men’s Lacrosse (8-2) Gets Offensive In Dominating 17-9 Win At Georgetown On March 29


Led by a career-high performance from junior Wesley Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.), the No. 6/6 University of Denver men’s lacrosse team defeated Georgetown 17-9 on the road on Saturday afternoon at the Multi-Sport Field in Washington, D.C. The win brings the Pioneers to 8-2 on the season, while the Hoyas falls to 3-7. Denver is also 2-0 in BIG EAST play.   “I’m really proud of these guys,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “We had a lot going against us this week in traveling to the east coast where the weather was a little ugly, and playing with different offensive personnel than we normally do. Georgetown is a hungry team and really made it difficult for us in the beginning. Credit goes to Wesley Berg for stepping up when we needed him to and for our entire team in filling in where we had some holes.” Berg tied his career-high of nine points off a career-high six goals and a career-high three assists. Berg previously tallied nine points in the Pioneers’ NCAA Tournament First Round win over Albany on May 11, 2013. Berg’s six goals also gives him his first sock trick of the season, fourth of his career. Sophomore transfer Jack Bobzien (Littleton, Colo.) also tied his career high in points, finishing with six off four goals and two assists. Freshman Dallas Bridle (Orangeville, Ontario) started his first collegiate game for the Pioneers, scoring a career-high three goals for his first hat trick. Senior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontario) finished with two goals and an assist for three points, while junior Erik Adamson (Anaheim Hills, Calif.) and sophomore transfer Bryce Parietti (Centennial, Colo.) both finished with a goal each. Parietti’s goal was the first as a Pioneer. Freshmen Max Planning (Alexandria, Va.), Tyler Pace (Mission, B.C.) and Mike Babb (Denver, Colo.) all finished with an assist each. Sophomore face-off specialist Chris Hampton (Bethesda, Md.) won 5-of-13 face-offs and grabbed three ground balls, while sophomores Christian Thomas (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) and Joe Bano (Dublin, Ohio) also saw action. Junior Ryan LaPlante (Fort Collins, Colo.) finished with six saves in the first half, while senior Jamie Faus (Lakeville, Conn.) made two saves. Sophomore Joey Gigantiello (Shamong, N.J.) made two saves. Junior Garret Holst (Fishers, Ind.) caused a career- and game-high three turnovers, while Noble and sophomore Pat Karole (Glen Ridge, N.J.) both finished with two caused turnovers each. Denver remains on the road, traveling to Villanova, Pa., to take on the Wildcats on Friday, April 4 at 5 p.m. MT. The game will be televised live on CBS Sports Network.

Stanford Women’s Lacrosse (5-1) Rally From Six Goals Down In Second Half To Defeat #14 Georgetown 11-10 In Double-Overtime On March 9


The No. 19 Stanford women’s lacrosse team rallied from a six-goal second-half deficit to beat No. 14 Georgetown, 11-10, in double overtime on Sunday to earn back-to-back road victories over ranked teams. Lucy Dikeou scored the unassisted winner 2:14 into sudden death to complete a run of seven unanswered goals that began with 19:16 left in the second half with Stanford facing a 10-4 deficit.  The dramatics weren’t limited to Dikeou’s winner. Trailing 10-9 in the final seconds of regulation, Stanford emptied its net in a desperation attempt to tie the score. The opportunity came when Alexandra Crerend was fouled with one second left, just after picked up a ground ball in the eight-meter arc. Her free-position shot scored to make it, 10-10, and force overtime. It was the second consecutive dramatic last-second free-position goal for Stanford, which beat No. 11 Towson, 8-7, on Friday after Hannah Farr scored as time ran out for the first-overtime half. In the first overtime, Georgetown drew a free position, but Stanford goalie Lyndsey Munoz denied Natalie Miller’s shot and Farr picked up the loose ball and the first six-minute overtime, which is played to its entirety, ended scoreless.  In the second overtime, Georgetown won the draw, but Farr again came to the rescue, stripping a Hoya player in Stanford’s own defensive end and picking up the ground ball to launch an attack. Just a minute later, Dikeou scored her only goal of the game for the winner. Stanford (5-1) swept its three-games in five-days road trip that began with a 19-5 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opening victory at Fresno State. It also was Stanford’s third overtime contest in four games, having lost at home to unranked Vanderbilt, 16-15, on March 2.

The Cardinal opened the season with a three-game homestand that finished Sunday with a 16-15 overtime loss to Vanderbilt.

Wednesday’s Opponent, Fresno State: For the first time in its six year history, the Bulldogs opened the season with a victory, winning at Monmouth, 8-6. Since then, Fresno State (1-3) has lost three straight, including an MPSF opener against visiting Denver on Feb. 23, losing 20-5. After going 0-42 its first three seasons, Fresno has gone 6-26 since, including 2-13 last year. The Bulldogs return seven starters, but 18 of its 23 players are freshmen and sophomores.

The Stanford-Fresno State Series: Stanford leads the all-time series, 6-0. Last year’s contest – a 21-8 result — was the closest in the series. Stanford’s fewest number of goals against Fresno came in a 16-1 victory in the 2010 MPSF tournament.

Friday’s Opponent, Towson: Towson (2-1) has climbed up the IWLCA rankings, moving up from No. 20 to No. 11 in the past two weeks. The Tigers actually moved up four spots last week despite losing in its only game, 12-7 to No. 2 Syracuse. Towson’s Johnny Unitas Stadium is the site of the NCAA final four. Towson returned seven starters from a 10-9 team that has won the past three Colonial Athletic Association regular season titles, and the past two conference tournament championships. The Tigers beat then-No. 10 Georgetown, 14-10, on Feb. 22. The Tigers will be Stanford’s first ranked opponent.

The Stanford-Towson Series: In their only matchup, Towson beat visiting Stanford, 10-9, by rallying from an 8-5 second-half deficit to win.

Sunday’s Opponent, Georgetown: Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian, a third-team IWLCA All-America last season, was named to the Tewaaraton Award watch list along with senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman. Sophomore attack Corinne Etchison leads the Hoyas in scoring with 9 goals. No. 14 Georgetown was ranked as high as No. 10, before a 14-10 loss to Towson, before beating No. 19 Princeton, 17-16, in overtime.

The Stanford-Georgetown Series: Stanford’s 15-8 loss against visiting Georgetown last year equaled the Cardinal’s largest loss of the season. Stanford is 0-4 against the Hoyas in a series that began in 2003. Stanford came closest in 2005, in a 10-6 defeat.
