NCAA Women’s Lacrosse: Stanford Women’s Lacrosse Travels To Philadelphia To Play Defending National Champion Maryland, Virginia And Pennsylvania On Oct. 23
The Stanford women’s lacrosse team embarks on a championship challenge this weekend, as the Card travels to Philadelphia to take on three top-10 teams this Saturday. While the Card will be missing Homecoming, the reason is most definitely a good one, as it will tangle with perennial powerhouses Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Stanford capped off last weekend’s playday by knocking off three Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) foes, but the task gets elevated to a new level this weekend at Franklin Field, home of the Quakers.
The highlight of the weekend will be when the Card takes on Maryland, the defending national champion. Of course, Penn and Virginia are no slouches either, as both made last year’s NCAA Tournament as well.
Maryland took home the national title with a 13-11 victory over Northwestern, which was ranked No. 1 for most of the season.
The Northwestern-Maryland matchup in the title game was especially significant for the Terrapins, who were pining to knock off the Wildcats team that had captured every national championship since 2005, a streak of five in a row.

NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Championships: North Carolina Women’s Lacrosse Defeats #2 Maryland 8-7 And #1 Northwestern Defeats Penn 13-12 In Double Overtime; Wildcats To Meet Tar Heels In Final
The heavily favored Wildcats, 22-0 and aiming for a fifth straight national title, needed sudden-death double overtime and a trick shot from Katrina Dowd to slip past No. 4 Penn, 13-12, in Friday’s semifinal.
North Carolina, which held the high-scoring Terrapins to their lowest scoring total of the season, needs another strong defensive effort if it’s going to end Northwestern’s run of four straight championships. The Wildcats have the top scoring offense in Division I and produced 13 goals in their double-overtime semifinal win over Pennsylvania, even though their catalyst, senior Hannah Nielsen, was held to no goals and two assists. Junior attacker Katrina Dowd has already set a tournament record with 18 goals. North Carolina starts four players with local ties: junior midfielder Megan Bosica (Mt. Hebron), sophomore defender Meredith Newton (Severna Park), senior attacker Chelsea Parks (Centennial), and sophomore midfielder Mia Hurrin (St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes). Bosica, a two-time All-Met player of the year, set up the game-winning goal against Maryland, and finished with two goals and two assists. Northwestern beat North Carolina in early March, 12-7.
2009 NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Championship Tournament: Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse Vs. Penn And Maryland Vs. North Carolina Semi-Finals Set For May 22
GAME 1 & GAME 2 Winners 5:30 pm
After celebrating an impressive 12-8 victory over then-No. 2 Syracuse on Saturday, the men’s lacrosse team had to switch gears quickly and prepare for a Tuesday evening matchup against Ivy League rival Penn. Led by four goals from senior attack Tommy Davis, Princeton eked out a 10-9 overtime win in Philadelphia.
The Quakers (2-7 overall, 1-4 Ivy League) forced the game to overtime after scoring a goal with 59 seconds left in the fourth quarter to knot the match at nine. But the Tigers (9-1, 2-0) kept Penn at bay when sophomore attack Jack McBride got the ball and hit a cut right down the middle to Davis, who slammed the ball into the net and won the game for the Tigers.
Head coach Bill Tierney was satisfied with the way his offense played in overtime.
“During overtime, what you’ve got to try and do is get everybody thinking positively and try to get the faceoff,” Tierney said. “The offense was very clearheaded [in overtime] and threw good passes. They did a really good job of being patient for the first time all night.”
So far this year, the now-No. 2 Tigers have been indomitable, and they entered the game riding the momentum from their huge win over Syracuse. In contrast, the struggling Penn squad had just recently broken a six-game losing streak with a 9-6 win over Dartmouth. In spite of all this, the Quakers showed a ferocity on the field on Tuesday that shocked Princeton.
University of Denver Men’s Lacrosse Defeats University of Pennsylvania 12-6 On Road; Western Lacrosse Credibility On The Rise
“We played solid game on both sides of the ball to give us a much need road victory,” said head coach Jamie Munro. “We controlled the ball and found a way to score on a strong Penn defense. Pete Lowell posted a great game for us between the pipes and our defense really stepped up to help him out.”
The University of Denver men’s lacrosse team (4-1) turned in a 12-6 road win over the University of Pennsylvania (1-2) on Friday afternoon at Franklin Field.
Sophomore midfielder Jamie Lincoln (St. Catharines, Ontario) led the Pioneers with three goals as Denver secured its fourth straight win of the season. Also contributing for the Pioneers was senior Joey Murray (Denver, Colo.) as he finished with two goals and one assist, while sophomore Andrew Lay (Denver, Colo.) added two goals of his own.
After finding themselves trailing 4-2 mid-way through the second quarter, the Pioneers switch gears and scored eight straight goals that stretched two quarters to take a 10-4 lead over the Quakers.
In the second, Andrzejewski scored off a Corey Winkoff feed, and then Al Kohart scored unassisted to give Penn a 3-1 lead before the quarter was two minutes old. Denver’s Lay got one of the goals back a minute after Kohart’s score, but Andrzejewski matched with his second goal and third point of the day with 6:35 left before the break.
Denver remains on the road this weekend, traveling to Providence, R.I., to face the Brown Bears at 11 a.m. (MT) on Sunday.
