Any former players or fans of the game out there. I played in H.S., college and for a club team for a few years after school.
This weekend starting tomorrow the championship games for all three divisions will be played at the Ravens stadium in Baltimore. If you get a chance check out the DI games on ESPN2. I'm not sure if the DII and DIII games are televised.

Div I
Johns Hopkins vs Univ of Delaware (Sat)
Cornell vs Duke (Sat)
***Winners meet on Memorial Day***

Div II
LeMoyne vs Mercyhurst (Sun)

Div III
Salisbury vs Cortland St (Sun)

Predictions:
Cornell is undefeated but I think Duke will knock them off. JHU will take out this years cinderella team U of D.
Duke beats JHU in the championship game.

LeMoyne over Mercyhurst. Have to pick them cause they're coached by my younger brothers college teammate.

Last year C State and Salisbury met in the finals and C State pulled off the shocker in OT which put an end to Salisbury's 69 consecutive game winning streak. Salisbury is undefeated this season and I don't think lightning will strike again this weekend.

Central New York will take at least two titles this weekend.

If Cortland does win, we'll have all three.

Can't beat hockey on grass.

Johns Hopkins took a 2-1 halftime lead and went on to win 8-3 over Univ. of Delaware to advance to the finals on Monday. Next game is Cornell vs. Duke in a regular season rematch that the undefeated Cornell team won.

In the second game Cornell held an early 3-2 lead but Duke scored the next 8 goals and it looked like it would be a blow out. Cornell came all the way back to tie the score at 11 with 17 seconds remaining. It looked like the game was going into OT but Duke won the face off and scored the game winner with 3 seconds to go in the game. Had to be one of the most exciting games I've witnessed in my entire life.

I watched the last 30 seconds.

WOW!

Looked just like the Cornell/Syracuse game a few weeks ago.

And for even better drama, Lemoyne wins with two seconds left on a pass that goes into the goal!

Only one title for central NY this year.

Glad to see Salisbury won...and I hope JHU wins. They've always been my favorite. I've been into lacrosse for 6 or 7 years and played awhile ago, but dislocated my knee cap and just kind of lost the drive after that. I'm looking foward to the game today though

Make that two titles.

I forgot all about Onondaga Community College taking the juco title.

JHU came out hitting on all cylinders and took a commanding 10-4 halftime lead. You had to wonder if Duke had enough gas in the tank to mount a comeback after playing the late game Sat. and several players cramping up with dehydration.
Duke turned the momentum in thier favor in the second half and stormed back to tie the game 11-11 late in the 4th quarter. JHU scored the go ahead goal with about 3:30 left in the game and hung on for the win as Duke shots hit the goalposts several times in the final minutes.
This was the only game of the weekend I didn't predict correctly but damn it was another exciting game. Did anybody else watch?

I watched the last minute.

As much as I hate Duke, I was hoping they'd win after getting screwed by their own university last year.

What a great game! I watched the first half then kind of stopped paying attention. I began to notice Duke kept scoring so I started to watch again and dang...it was awesome. I agree with you photoron, that it would of been nice to see duke win after getting screwed last year, but Hopkins has always been my favorite team so it was still a great outcome for me. I'm glad to see lacrosse is being discussed on here. Living in Maryland I've grown up with it all around me, but so many people at college don't even know of it. I hope it grows in popularity because it is a lot of fun.

Both Duke finishes were awesome. Blue Devils would have been a great storyline gaining exposure beyond the lax community. They were really flat in the first half.

If LAX was a stock - buy a bunch. It is blowing up here in Colorado and similarily in Dallas and parts of California and the Pacific NW. Equipment mfgs must be smiling.

One of my favorite tie dyes was a Brine LAX shirt that said "Friends Don't Let Friends Play Baseball"

That's great to hear. I don't hear much about out west.

That's a great t-shirt. I'm pretty sure there was one back in the day that said "Thou Shall play Lacrosse. Thou Shall not play Baseball." with a big picture with an allusion to Moses and the 10 commandments.

My son plays for a club team here in LI and we had the pleasure of being down in Cockysville MD for a couple of games Saturday and Sunday. Saturday after our game we headed off to M&T to watch the semi's. It was a great time and the kids witnessed some great Lacrosse.

lax goalies are a special breed....with a high pain threshold. At least they get to deliver a good hit once in a while.
My son plays varsity HS lax D pole and AAA midget hockey and gets more bruised up from lax.

My nephew plays goalie too. He was an all-american his junior year. Still waiting to see if he repeats this year.

The three day attendance total in Baltimore this weekend set a new record - 123,225

Hey MoreCowbell, I thought you might want to know that Kings Park(13-6) will be meeting Huntington(18-0) in the Suffolk County High School Class B Championship game I believe this Friday. They upset favorite, Comsewogue(15-3) last Friday in the semi finals. I remember at Irving Plaza you asked me about Pete Thompson. He is Head Coach for KP. I thought you might want some Lacrosse news from your old stomping grounds.

Pete

Here is the full story from Newsday.


KP's win sets up Huntington final

The team with the faulty-eyed goalie and the mohawk haircuts is headed to the Suffolk Class B boys lacrosse final.

No. 6 Kings Park stunned No. 2 Comsewogue, 11-10, in a semifinal Friday behind 11 saves from goalie Dan Hagstrom, who said he was nearly blinded in a pickup lacrosse game last year and still has trouble seeing out of his right eye.

After an overtime win over Half Hollow Hills West in the quarterfinals, all but one of the players turned their hairdos into mohawks in a gathering at senior Joe Montemurro's house. One of the players had a looming job interview and skipped the haircut session.

"It was a sign of solidarity," senior attack Joe Trezza said. "This group is a team in every sense of the word. It's not just one guy making the plays."

Matt Boylan had three goals and three others had two apiece for Kings Park (13-6). Trezza and Montemurro notched two goals and two assists each and Dan Kelly also scored twice.

Kings Park will appear in the county final for the first time since the boys varsity program was established in 1966, according to coach Pete Thompson, and will face top-seeded Huntington at 3 p.m. next Friday at Stony Brook University.

Comsewogue's fleet-footed offense was stalled by 11 penalties and Kings Park's timely goals.

"It seems like we were always playing catch-up," Comsewogue coach Pete Mitchell said.

Comsewogue's John DeChiaro started the fourth period by cutting Kings Park's lead to one, but Boylan, who had the game-winner in the quarterfinals, put the Kingsmen ahead 11-9 with 6:15 left.

With Kings Park a man down, Comsewogue's Frankie Donlon scored with 58.8 seconds left to make it 11-10. Al Kohart's shot with five seconds left sailed wide for Comsewogue (15-3), and Kings Park spilled onto the field in celebration.

"This means so much to the school," said Hagstrom, who stopped a point-blank shot early in the fourth period with Kings Park a man down.

Hagstrom wears contact lenses after suffering a detached retina last year.

"I just make do," he said, "by depending on my teammates."

I played in the 60s in the era of wooden sticks. Our school won the MSA (Maryland Scolastic Association) championship in 65. The game was played at John Hopkins in Baltimore. Our coach was an all american at U of Maryland, Clayton "Buddy" Beardmore. He also coached our football team but it was easy to see LAX was his first love. He went on to coach at Maryland after he left Severn School. I was really still learning lacrosse as I had come from Philly and the lacrosse was really just getting more popular then. The Maryland kids I played with were born with LAX sticks in thier hands and played all their lives it seemed.

It was just an intramural sport when I was in high school.

Too bad, it was the perfect sport for after hockey season.
