Lacrosse at Maryland (3/10/18 - 12 PM)

Recommended Posts

Announcers were good, but the one guy clearly had a Maryland bias. Which is fine being the Big 10 network.

Except the graphic at the end said University OF Albany. At least they didn’t add ‘-NY.’

 

I wouldn't say JD was cheating. I would give him and the coaches more credit and attribute it to film work on tendencies and that was their game plan.

Cheating as in expecting low shots and starting low, rather than standing up and moving low after the shot

I get that, but it was obviously a game plan so attribute it to that. "Cheating" to me was devaluing the saves. I know what he was saying, just didn't like the verbiage.

Sorry, realized I was going sort of negative which there is no need for. What a comeback. I've re-watched the 4th quarter 3 times already and probably not my last time, haha.

I would not call it cheating either. Well coached game plan based on tendencies!! You are 100% correct!

I finally had a chance to watch the game. I thought the announcers were pretty spot on with their calls.

 

I think our offense still has a ways to go, and the easy transition goals haven't been there. The settled offense as the announcer were saying was the ball in one guys stick for a lot of the time, but hey it is working! And they scored 11 goals in a game where TD didn't dominate the face offs. To me that is a great sign.

 

Big one against UVM next week. Hope the weather is great and the stadium is packed.

Even though it'll be St. Patrick's Day - NO GREEN next Saturday!

If we have to nit-pick, our man-up is horrendous. Most games we score at will with 6 on 6, but when we have the extra man, we can't get a shot on goal. That 6 on 4 we had today was painful to watch. Maryland in a basic box of 4 corner guys and we pass around like it's a game of catch. Need to work on it before playoffs.

Agree with man down. They need to whip it around and get someone a look. Instead it is just slow and methodical leading to a forced attempt.

Coach Marr said they were terrible in an interview last week - so at least they know that they have to improve.

Watching @ City Line I thought we were simply being out played by a very good Maryland team for the first 3 qtrs. But watching it again when I got home, I would say that our problem especially early on was we were simply NOT shooting well (the announcers also commented several times that UA's shots were mostly not on goal, even when we had good looks.) Also, UA did come back from 8-3 to pulll within 8-6, before falling behind again 10-6. So maybe the 4th qtr adjustment was more about better execution than any strategic changes. Just as TD figured it out late, and JD knew he had to get low earlier; the sharp shooters also made the appropriate adjustments. Someone called for an expert analysis of the come back and I am most definitely NOT AN EXPERT, so I offer this only as an un-eduacted observation. Expert & Others thoughts appreciated.

 

Speaking of experts; call out to Pompo who explained Patterson more effect when defended by a short stick. Proved providential.

Marr said after the game that the big difference in the 4th was pace. MD plays much slower than UA and they were getting drawn down to that speed. So the picked up the pace of the attack and it worked.

The service guy at my Subaru dealer saw the GDAC magnet a few days ago and couldnt stop talking about how much he loves UA sports. He was thinking about driving down to MD but may have watched at the party.
