Boston University head men’s lacrosse coach Ryan Polley announced the team’s fall schedule, which will feature four exhibition games.

The first two contests on the docket will be at the Northeast Classic, formerly known as the Catamount Classic, held Oct. 13 at Thayer Academy in Braintree, Mass. The Terriers will face Sacred Heart at 10 a.m. before taking on Hartford at 12 p.m. All event proceeds will be donated to cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

BU will host an alumni game against current and past club team players on Oct. 19 at Nickerson Field. Game time is set for 4 p.m. The final exhibition will take place on Oct. 23 (7 p.m.) when the Terriers host Team England at Nickerson.

“We are extremely excited to kick off our inaugural fall season with four great opportunities for our young team to get better and develop chemistry,” Polley said. “The Northeast Classic will provide us two tough opponents to compete against while benefiting a great cause. The alumni game will combine new and old as we will have everyone back for a fun event. Finally, our game against England’s national team will be a tremendous barometer of our team’s overall progress as we head into the offseason.”

The team’s first official practice will take place on Sept. 12 in preparation for the fall schedule.

MCLA Lacrosse: BYU Men’s Lacrosse Captured The “2011 MCLA National Championship” Through Great Team Depth And Key Play At Face-Off And In Goal (Video)

The championship win was the team’s 20th win of the season, which gave the Cougars a final record of 20-3. BYU also is now tied with Colorado State for the most MCLA national championships in league history with four. Between the Cougars’ last title, in 2007, and the 2011 crown, Michigan had won three straight.

Consistently one of the top programs in the Division I Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association, the BYU men’s lacrosse team found its way to the top again in 2011.

The culmination of a season full of highlights, including an undefeated home record, came when the Cougars overcame an early deficit to rattle off five second-quarter goals in beating Arizona State 10-8 in the national title game in late May.

It’s the fourth MCLA Division I championship for BYU.

Coach Matt Schneck is in his second year and said how pleased he was with his team.

“The 2011 BYU lacrosse team is a special group of young men that demonstrated that they are true champions both on and off the field,” Schneck said in a news release after winning the championship game.

Senior Dan Cole garnered tournament MVP honors and helped the Cougars control possession, winning face-offs consistently throughout the tournament.

“There is no better way to finish than to go out on top,” Cole said in a news release. “This win means years of hard work and dedication on everyone’s part. From the coaches to each player, we all had to sacrifice this year and it was all worth it.”

Goalkeeper Matt Brandenburg broke his thumb the night before the championship game, during a 14-11 semifinal victory over Colorado State, forcing freshman Wes Goar to start in the net for the championship game. Following two second-half BYU penalties, Goar made two key saves that were critical for the Cougars and he played an integral part in the team’s win.

“We had 100 percent confidence in Wes taking on the starting role in goal heading into this national championship game,” Schneck said. “He was prepared and ready to take on the challenge. He played an outstanding game.”

Assistant coach Jordan Harris said Goar had improved his skills as a goalie, and it showed during the championship.

“With Wes we knew we had a big-time keeper, but we wanted to see more consistency out of him,” Harris said in a news release. “He could have given up and stopped working when he lost his starting job three-fourths of the way through the season, but he did the opposite. He went back to work and became a better goalie, and it showed on the biggest stage.”

Schneck reflected on what his first championship as head coach means to the lacrosse program.

“I am thrilled for the entire program to have accomplished such an incredible feat in our second year,” Schneck said. “This victory should be attributed to the dedication of the entire coaching staff, team and supporters of BYU lacrosse.”

Another accomplishment this season was the lacrosse team having some of its games broadcast nationwide on BYUtv. The first game that was broadcast live was on March 15 against the San Diego Toreros.

Schneck implemented a plan to work with donors and raise funds to get BYU lacrosse back on the air after three years. Schneck said he’s grateful for his team and fans all over the country to be able to enjoy this.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity for lacrosse to be broadcast once again on BYUtv,” he said. “We are especially excited for our BYU lacrosse fans and alumni that are living in many different parts of the country. The University and BYUtv have been great to work with.”

NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Loyola Men’s Lacrosse 9-8 Victory Over Navy On Feb 19

The 14th-ranked Loyola men’s lacrosse team overcame a five-goal deficit to earn a 9-8 victory over Navy Saturday afternoon at the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.  A goal by sophomore attackman Patrick Fanshaw with 1:08 remaining in the contest sealed the win for the Greyhounds, who earned a one-goal victory over the Mids for the second-straight year.

It’s the first time Navy has let a five-goal lead slip away for a loss since March 4, 2000, when the Mids owned a 7-2 advantage over North Carolina in the second quarter and were tripped up in overtime, 11-10.

Described by Navy head coach Richie Meade as “a tale of two halves,” the game came down to one simple word – possession.  Navy took 17 of its 24 shots in the opening half and scored seven goals. Meanwhile, in the second half, Navy lost nine of the 10 faceoffs and managed just seven shots in the entire half.  In the third quarter alone, Loyola outshot the Mids, 16-1, and owned a 10-1 ground ball advantage.
