Lacrosse takes on "1" John Hopkins

Recommended Posts

Men's lacrosse takes on #1 John Hopkins today. Hopkins is #1 in the coaches poll but as was pointed out yesterday Albany is #1 in the power poll.

Albany, N.Y. – After beginning the season with a 16-5 victory over Manhattan, the University at Albany men’s lacrosse team will take on Johns Hopkins, the nation’s top-ranked squad, on Tuesday, March 9. Game time is 3:00 p.m. at Homewood Field in Baltimore, Maryland.


Johns Hopkins (2-0) is ranked No. 1 for the second straight week in the STX-USILA national poll. The current rankings were announced on Monday afternoon. The Blue Jays, who reached the NCAA Division I championship game last year, defeated Princeton, 14-5, last Saturday. Kyle Harrison, a second-team All-America midfielder, scored a career-high four goals and added one assist, as his team ran its home winning streak to 21 straight games.


UAlbany (1-0) won its season opener for the second straight year, as reigning America East Conference player of the year Luke Daquino totaled three goals and four assists against Manhattan. Michael Solazzo, a second-team all-conference attackman, added three goals and three assists, plus reached the 100-plateau in career points (102). Kevin Rae, the 2003 America East championship MVP, had 10 saves in three quarters of work at goalkeeper.


Head coach Scott Marr, a 1991 Johns Hopkins graduate, is in his third season at the helm. Marr led the Great Danes to their first-ever NCAA appearance and the America East Conference championship last season. UAlbany will also meet No. 3 Syracuse in the Carrier Dome on Saturday, April 24.

Looks like UAlbany took on too many penalties- Johns Hopkins was 6 for 11 on the extra man opportunity ("power play"), while the Great Danes were 0-5 (I'm not going to count the penalty with 7 second remaining). There is a large portion of the final score. Five of their goals in the 15-1 run were man-up.
