Yeah, nice comeback, but the D has been lax (see what I did there?}

Did UA forget how to play defense?? Difference in the game IMHO--brook played D, UA did not!  Looks like brook #1 pre-season correct. Vermont offense good but they don't play D. At this point, brook looks like the best balanced team, especially if UA can't figure out how to win some face-offs and how to play some Defense.

Also UA plays DEFENSE in QTR 1, like they don't have an idea what the other team is going to do. Maybe because of covid NO scouting??? 1st qtr vs vt and brook cost us both games, Even vs umass the D let in 4 quickies. {good thing UA offense also off to a fast start vs umass.}

ps. Did not like that Scott pulled Donnelly; even though Ramos made some great saves @ first. But overall Donnelly was NOT THE FAULT!  IMHO the D did not give him a chance on 5 of the 6 he allowed.

Starts and stops with coaching, player development, and how complementary players are put on the field. Team defense has been lacking for a while now. How many times are we going to hear we were not ready coming off of the bus, bad slides, no slides, ball watching, guys watching on offense. The Stony Brook announcers did a good job of calling the game and highlighting all of that.

quote from Quint in IL;  "The America East has a sensational race going on with the Seawolves, UMBC, Albany and Vermont vying for the AQ. UMBC wins close games on a weekly basis. Albany is mercurial." In a subsequent article he heaps praise on UA for their victory against a highly rated UMass team and finishes with the following "Saturday, they gave it all right back losing a conference game to Stony Brook, their second league defeat."

Don't always agree with Quint but I think he nailed it with mercurial:  [mer·cu·ri·al| ˌmərˈkyo͝orēəl | adjective1 (of a person) subject to sudden or unpredictable changes of mood or mind: his mercurial temperament.]  And his praise of UA; supported by UMass beating Hofstra (a team in the 10-15 polls.) 16-10 yesterday.

I did not start a new topic; blog interest in Lacrosse seems pretty low these days. But for those interested UA bounced back nicely from last weekends loss to brook and the dismissal of their leading scorer and one time #1 recruit in the country.

UMass Lowell is not a very good team at this point, but are well coached and have a lot of good young talent IMHO. UA played very well yesterday on both offense and defense. Really putting it all together, including correcting 3 areas which many on this blog have noticed. UA won 18 of 26 face-offs, was dominant on ground balls and reduced turnovers significantly. The final was 17-6 and even though you may say UMass is bad/young/etc, I would counter that UA also plays with many freshman & sophomores. UA had ten different players score a goal;  had 13 assists on 17 goals; UA's leading scorer now that Tehoka is gone did not score a goal, but had 3 assists: and a freshman (Camden Hay) who may IMHO be the best of UA's youngsters did not suit due to an injury from an illegal hit earlier in the year. My point, this UA teams is young and talented and when they play together and are FOCUSED can beat "almost" anyone, when they play like they played yesterday
