Potsdam got on the scoreboard with a goal from freshman midfielder Alec Miller (Williamsville, N.Y./Williamsville South) at 6:50. At the 4:50 mark, junior midfielder Josh Huiatt (Libson, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) unloaded from the left wing to beat Brockport freshman goalie John Felice (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y./Comsewogue). Sophomore attackman Liam O'Connor (Ossinging, N.Y./Ossinging) gave Golden Eagles their lead back before the conclusion of the quarter by sending a shot to the left corner of the goal with 4:03 to go. The Golden Eagles led 3-2 after one.    Bears junior attackman Tayte Murray (Cicero, N.Y./Cicero-North Syracuse) tied the game at 6:25 of the second quarter after getting past his defender and scoring in close. After a low scoring quarter, the Bears took the lead going into halftime as they got a man-up goal from senior midfielder Kyle Smith (Theresa, N.Y./Indian River) with two minutes left. Felice committed the infraction and was replaced by senior goalie John Clancy (Mineola, N.Y./Miniola) until he allowed the goal. The Golden Eagles were unable to respond before the conclusion of the quarter as the Bears led 4-3 through 30 minutes.    The Golden Eagles tied the game with the third quarter's lone goal with 4:06 left. After a series of passes, sophomore attacker Patrick Sheridan (Rochester, N.Y./ Churchville-Chilli) found the net a few feet away from the goal.    Sheridan made six saves in the final quarter to keep the game tied. O' Gorman finally put Potsdam up for good at 11:22 after scooping a low pass from Murray and scoring on a high shot. With strong ball control and Sheridan sharp, the Bears held the lead and the ball with 21 seconds go. However, the Golden Eagles forced a turnover and Patrick Sheridan had a chance to tie the game with about 10 seconds left. It wasn't meant to be, as Zach Sheridan deftly snatched the ball out of the air and fired it down field to seal the win.   Felice was the tough luck loser after allowing just 4 goals and making six saves in 59:29. Clancy allowed the one man-up goal in 31 seconds in net.

April 10: SUNY Potsdam senior captain Zach Sheridan (Clay, N.Y./Cicero-North Syracuse) made a career-high 20 saves and picked up his first collegiate assist, but the SUNY Potsdam men's lacrosse team (3-6, 0-2 SUNYAC) fell to Oswego State (7-2, 2-0) 11-9 on Wednesday evening. Junior captain Josh Huiatt (Lisbon, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) led the Bears with three goals and an assist and seniors Josh Bradford (Whitney Point, N.Y./Limestone College) and Sean Coe (Baldwinsville, N.Y./C. W.

Junior faceoff specialist Luke Vitale (Fairfield, Conn./Fairfield Ludlow) won the ensuing  faceoff and the Bears controlled the ball for the next three minutes. In that time they took eight shots, but O'Donnell kept them off the board with three crucial saves.   Potsdam opened the fourth with two goals in 2:46 to climb within 9-8 with 11:02 to play. However, Lakers sophomore midfielder Bobby Emerson (Lake Grove, N.Y./Center Reach) scored two in-a-row at 7:06 and 6:20 to put the game out of reach. The Bears closed the game with a final highlight.

May 2: Down 12-5 entering the final 15 minutes of play, the Plattsbugh State men's lacrosse team were the architects of a furious comeback attempt, outscoring the number-one seeded and No. 11-ranked SUNY Cortland 7-2 in the fourth quarter only to come up short in a 14-12 setback to the Red Dragons in the 2015 SUNYAC Men's Lacrosse Championship Tournament finals on Saturday afternoon. In the Cardinals' 2015 season finale, senior Jack Felter amassed four points on three goals and one assist and freshman Ryan Hubbard pumped in two scores in the last 6:56 of the game. They were two of the seven Plattsburgh State student-athletes to record multi-point games. Saturday marked Plattsburgh State's third-consecutive appearance in the SUNYAC Tournament finals – all of which have come against the Red Dragons. The Cardinals wrap up their 2015 campaign with a record of 13-6 which includes a 4-2 showing in conference tilts. Although the visitors never led, they made sure to keep consistent pressure on the Red Dragons for the majority of the skirmish. Felter registered his first of the day in the opening quarter. Assisting on the Cardinals' first strike of the day was senior James Read who notched his first of three points on the day with the helper. Trailing 2-1 headed to the second frame, the Cardinals saw the SUNY Cortland tandem of Matt Savlov and Mike Cantelli fire in their second goals of the afternoon in the first 3:30 of the quarter, upping the Red Dragons' edge to 4-1. Refusing to go down quietly, the Cardinals pulled within one once again after Matt Renko and Austin Belz slung in scores. From there, the teams alternated scoring with Brendan Damm and Felter accounting for Plattsburgh State's goals. Felter's man-up laser cut the Red Dragons' advantage to 6-5 heading to halftime. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Red Dragons came roaring out of the mid-game break with intentions of putting the game out of reach for good. Benjamin Dunlavey completed his hat trick with a pair of scoring drives and T.J. deLyra slung in two of his own as part of a 6-0 scoring run for the home team which spanned the entire quarter. On the wrong end of a 12-5 deficit heading to the final frame, the Cardinals unleashed a desperate all-out assault on the Red Dragons in a bid to emerge as the victors. Mike Gay opened the Plattsburgh State scoring barrage with his seventh of the season, but goals from Zach Hopps and Billy Davis helped the Red Dragons maintain their eight-goal lead, 14-6, with 10:18 to go. The Cardinals' never-say-die attitude manifested itself in a big way through the final 8:54 of the battle. Belz initiated a 6-0 Plattsburgh State offensive blitz with his second of the day before Damm and Felter added scores 28 seconds apart to make it a 14-9 game with 7:06 to go. Back-to-back tallies from Hubbard and Read's sole missile of the day with 1:53 to go pulled the visitors within 14-12, but a costly turnover with 1:13 to go allowed the Red Dragons to run out the clock and capture their 23rd conference crown. Junior netminder and All-SUNYAC Tournament Team selection Matt Massaria did all he could to keep his squad in it, making 16 stops in 60 minutes of action. Cortland goalie Scott Tota faced 46 total shots and made 10 saves in the win. Although they didn't come up on the winning end of things, the Cardinals have very little to hang their heads about. Head coach Ryan Cavanagh took over as the program's all-time leader in coaching victories during the 2015 campaign and Massaria, Renko and senior Brendan Cefalu received spots on the All-SUNYAC Tournament Team as a result of their excellent play. In all, some 11 seniors which include the likes of Cefalu, Felter, Read, Chris Guzzetta, Cole Andersen, Andrew Tralongo, Andy Krolczyk, Tom Monahan, Peter Johann, Brendan Hickey and Frank Mauro, wrapped up their careers on Saturday afternoon. That group has led Plattsburgh State to four straight SUNYAC Tournament appearances and a record of 51-22 in its tenure.

April 1: Plattsburgh State junior attackman Brendan Damm scored four goals and assisted on a fifth, leading the Cardinals to a 11-7 NCAA Division III lacrosse victory over St. Lawrence University in a game played at Canton College on Wednesday. The Cardinals, now 8-4 on the season, snapped a two-game win streak for the Saints who were coming off an upset win over third-ranked Union College on Saturday. SLU fell to 5-5 on the season heading into a Liberty League road game at Vassar on Saturday. The Saints stayed close as sophomore Conor Healey, who was named the USILA Division III North Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in wins over Geneseo and Union had a goal and set up four others, but the Cardinals took a 7-6 lead with 2:30 left in the third period which started a run of five unanswered goals and a 11-6 Plattsburgh lead with 4:20 to go in the game. Connor Brimley scored with eight seconds left for the 11-7 final. The two teams were tied at 2-2 after one and Plattsburgh had a 6-5 lead at the half on Jack Felter's 24th goal of the year with 20 seconds to go in the second period. Jon Fairbanks tied it for the Saints at 7:30 of the third with his fourth off Healey's assist, but Damm and James Read had two goals each and Read added an assist in the 5-0 Plattsburgh run which put the game away. Saint goalie Andrew Butturini had 13 saves while Plattsburg's Matt Massaria made 12 stops. Plattsburg was one for five in man up opportunities while the Saints were scoreless in two tries and the Cardinals finished with a 34-29 edge in shots and a 25-15 margin in ground balls. Plattsburgh's Joey Kromer helped his team to 15 faceoff wins in 22 opportunities. In addition to Healey's five point outing, Jeremy Vautour had two goals, Luike DiLioso had a goal and an assist and Charlie Duprey had a goal to join Fairbanks and Brimley in the scoring column.

April 10: With 10 goals in the first 12 minutes, the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team was up early on first-year program Plattsburgh State and the clock ran from there as the Golden Knights gained a 24-2 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon. The Golden Knights improved to 6-6 on the season and will take on RIT this weekend, again at Hantz Turf Field. Plattsburgh dropped to 1-11 on the campaign. Clarkson picked up a goal in the first 42 seconds, then tallied again just 26 seconds later and the rout was on. The Golden Knights produced 15 goals in the first half, holding Plattsburgh to just five shots and scoring on more than 60% of their chances overall. In the second half, Plattsburgh got a brief lift from freshman Emily Caoili when she scored two goals in a span of just 73 seconds. However, Clarkson got things rolling again with a pair of man-up goals and closed out the game on a 6-0 run with its reserves. Clarkson finished the game with a 44-8 edge in shots and a 36-7 lead in shots on goal. Junior Emma Andrews scored a team-best six points, scoring three times and finding her teammates for three assists. Jaid Baytos kicked in five points (including four goals) and added in two groundballs, two caused turnovers and two draw controls. Aubrey Borgesi also chipped in four goals with four draws and three groundballs. Sydney Roderick (0-3-3), Katie Sergeant (3-0-3), Mia Petrone (3-0-3) and Abby Collins (1-2-3) each added three points for the Knights.

April 6: A day after scoring just one goal in a loss to nationally-ranked William Smith, the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team put up 16 goals against another nationally-ranked foe in Ithaca College, but the result was still the same as the Golden Knights fell 24-16 in Liberty League action on Saturday afternoon. The Golden Knights dropped below .500 in both the league and overall, falling to 2-3 in conference games and 5-6 overall. Ithaca stayed unbeaten in the Liberty League at 5-0 and moved to 8-3 on the season. Clarkson finishes off non-league play on Wednesday when it hosts Plattsburgh State at Hantz Turf Field. The 16 goals scored by the Knights were tied for the most in program history in a loss (17-16 loss to RIT, 2013) and the 40 combined goals in the game easily topped the previous record at Clarkson when 35 combined goals were produced in a 20-15 victory by the Knights over Oswego State in 2010. The 24 goals allowed by Clarkson were the third-most in program history, trailing 25 given up to Rensselaer (1994) and 26 against Cortland State (1986). When Abby Collins scored at the 17:02 mark, the Knights and Bombers had already combined for more goals than Clarkson and William Smith totaled on Friday, and try as they may, the Green and Gold could not keep pace with Ithaca's high-octane offense. When Mia Petrone scored at the 13:43 mark, the Knights were within one, but Ithaca scored six of the last seven goals in the half, including a four-goal run in the final five minutes, for a 13-7 lead. The Bombers scored twice in the first minute of the second half, but the Knights rattled off three straight goals to make it 15-10 at the 22-minute mark. Ithaca responded with a pair of three-goal runs at the other end, sandwiched around a two-goal spurt by Clarkson, to threaten a running clock. However, the Knights tallied three times in a stretch of just 48 seconds to close the gap to just six (21-15). With the way the teams were rolling up offense, it seemed no lead was safe, but the Bombers pushed three more goals into their column to close out the game. Sydney Roderick scored a season-high eight points on four goals and four assists for the Knights while classmate Mia Petrone and junior Aubrey Borgesi each scored three goals. Abby Collins added a goal and an assist as well as six draw controls, and Stephanie Scaia was a bright spot on the defensive end with four caused turnovers and three groundballs. Samantha Gladd made 10 saves in the start for the Knights and Carolynn Pechmann denied one shot in relief. Allie Panara earned an incredible 15 draw controls and also scored seven points on three goals and four assists, matching the output of Danika Wagener, who had six goals and an assist. Bailey Herr notched six points on five goals and one assist and Jacqui Hallack produced five points with four goals and one assist. Mackenzie Schade stopped five shots in the Ithaca crease.

April 10: Freshman goalie Alexa Cassidy (Warwick, N.Y./Warwick) made a career-high 12 saves and freshman attacker Emily Caoili (Lagrangeville, N.Y./Arlington) scored twice, but the Plattsburgh State women's lacrosse team fell, 24-2, to Clarkson University in non-conference action Wednesday afternoon at Hantz Turf Field.   Clarkson finished with the upper hand in shots (44-8), ground balls (26-18) and draw controls (16-12) while converting on 5-of-9 free-position shots. On clears, the Cardinals were 6-for-15, while the Golden Knights were 17-for-19.   Plattsburgh State falls to 1-11 overall with the loss and next hosts Oswego State on Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m. Clarkson rises to 6-6 overall with the win and hosts the Rochester Institute of Technology next on Saturday, April 13, at 3 p.m.   Caoili scored both of the Cardinals' goals, while Cassidy scooped up a team-high five ground balls. Sophomore attacker/midfielder Kerri Corcoran (Rockville, Md./Richard Montgomery) led Plattsburgh State on the draw with five draw controls.   For Clarkson, junior attacker/midfielder Emma Andrews led the way with six points on three goals and three assists, while senior attacker/midfielder Jaid Baytos tallied five points on four goals and an assist. Junior attacker Aubrey Borgesi scored four times, while freshman attacker Sydney Roderick (three assists), junior Katie Sergeant (three goals), freshman midfielder Mia Petrone (three goals) and junior midfielder Abby Collins (one goal, two assists) all notched three points. Borgesi finished with four draw controls and three ground balls, while Baytos, Roderick and freshman midfielder Abigail Johnson all caused two turnovers.   The Golden Knights used four goalies in the win, with the quartet combining for five saves.

April 6: Junior attacker Katelyn McGlauflin (Scotia, N.Y./Scotia-Glenville) scored for the Plattsburgh State women's lacrosse team in the Cardinals' 23-1 loss to The College at Brockport Saturday afternoon at Bob Boozer Field in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) action.   The Golden Eagles finished with the upper hand in shots (38-6), ground balls (22-9) and draw controls (18-7) in addition to going 3-for-5 on free-position shots. On clears, the Cardinals were 4-for-14, while the Golden Eagles were 10-for-10.   Plattsburgh State falls to 1-10 overall (0-5 SUNYAC) with the loss and next visits non-conference Clarkson University on Wednesday, April 10, at 4 p.m. Brockport rises to 9-1 overall (4-0 SUNYAC) with the win and visits Fredonia next on Wednesday, April 10, at 4 p.m.   Sophomore attacker/midfielder Kerri Corcoran (Rockville, Md./Richard Montgomery) controlled three draws, caused a turnover and scooped up a ground ball, while freshman goalie Alexa Cassidy (Warwick, N.Y./Warwick) collected two ground balls.   Offensively, the Golden Eagles were led by senior attacker Sara Grapevine and freshman attacker Allison Jennings, who had eight points (three goals, five assists) and seven points (five goals, two assists), respectively. Junior attacker Chloe Kurst registered six points on two goals and four assists, while senior midfielder Hannah Cullen (two goals, two assists) and graduate student attacker Heather Conklin (four goals) each finished with four points. Freshman midfielder Julie Carballo scooped up five ground balls and controlled two draws, while senior defender Nikki Nolan and sophomore defender Lyndsie Pratt each recorded five draw controls.   Cassidy made nine saves in the loss for Plattsburgh State, while freshman goalie Morgan Elmer turned aside four shots in the win for Brockport.

April 25:  The SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (5-11, 2-6 SUNYAC) battled 17th-ranked Fredonia State (14-2, 7-1) for 60 minutes, before bowing to the Blue Devils 9-6 on Saturday afternoon. In her final game, senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) scored two goals for the Bears and junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) added four assists to set the Potsdam single-season assists record with 34. Katie Kleine led the Blue Devils with three goals and two assists.   Kleine set up Katie Glagolev to open the scoring 2:55 into the game. Wall answered at 26:32 on a helper from McClusky to start a 3-0 run. The duo repeated the scoring at 14:19 and McClusky set up senior attack Bailey Weigel at 12:31 to give the Bears a 3-1 lead. Fredonia closed the half with three straight goals and took a 4-3 lead into the break. Shelby DePew scored two in a row and Audrey Yokopovich got the final goal of the half at 3:27. All three markers came on assists from Marissa Cussins.   Kristie Kleine put the Blue Devils up 5-3 at 27:42 of the final period, but senior captain Emily Petit (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury) countered to get Potsdam back within one 44 seconds later. Fredonia scored four straight in a 2:40 span to build a 9-4 lead with 16:39 to play. Katie Kleine scored all three of her goals during the stretch. With 41 seconds left, McClusky connected with sophomore attack Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville-Hopkinton). Sophomore attack Katie Lapinski (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) closed the scoring 21 seconds later for the 9-6 final.   In goal, Potsdam sophomore Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made 11 saves. Nicole Burrows earned the win with four saves for Fredonia.   The loss brings to a close the careers of seniors Wall, Weigel, Petit, Katie Putnam (Chittenango, N.Y./Chittenango) and Cheyenne Lazore (Akwesasne, N.Y./Salmon River).   Wall finishes her career ranked seventh in scoring with 106 points and fourth in goals with 90.   Weigel is fourth in scoring with 143 points, fifth in goals (89), third in assists (54) and first in draw controls (324).   Petit totaled 33 goals and 15 assists for 48 points. She finishes her career as the program's all-time leader in ground balls (170), caused turnovers (86) and games-started (57) and is sixth in draw controls (81).   Putnam recorded 11 points on 10 goals and an assist along with 69 ground balls, 28 caused turnovers and 11 draw controls.   Heading into next season, McClusky is already fifth on the Bears all-time scoring list with 130 points. She is ninth in goals (67) and second in assists (63).

April 9: Senior attack Bailey Weigel (East Amherst, N.Y./Williamsville East) scored the game-winning goal with 27 seconds left as the SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (4-7) completed its 10-9 comeback victory over SUNY Canton (7-3) on Thursday afternoon. Weigel finished with three goals and an assist and junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) contributed a goal and three assists. Senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) scored twice for the 100th and 101st points of her career. Sophomore goalie Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made 11 saves, including nine in the second half to help the Bears to their third straight win.   The teams cautiously felt each other out over the opening five minutes, but Kangaroos sophomore midfielder Hannah Christiansen (Lake View, N.Y./Frontier) broke the stalemate with a goal at 24:32. McClusky set up sophomore attack Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville-Hopkinton) 24 seconds later to tie the score. At 21:42, McClusky gave Potsdam its first lead at 2-1 with an assist from sophomore midfielder Murphy Newman (Canton, N.Y./Berkshire School). Christiansen answered with two straight, the first on free position at 20:11, and the Roos were back up 3-2 at 18:27. McClusky set up Weigel nearly four minutes later to tie the game at three all.   Canton junior midfielder Robyn Carroll (Bowmanville, Ontario/St. Stephens) and Bears sophomore midfielder Alyssa Ferenczy (Williamsville, N.Y./Williamsville South) traded the next two goals, before the Roos closed the half on a 3-1 run. Canton sophomore attack Katelynn Nutter (Carthage, N.Y./Carthage) started the run and Carroll scored the final two. Wall reached the 100-point plateau on a pretty pass from sophomore attack Katie Lapinski (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) at 5:50 and Potsdam trailed 7-5 at the break.   Chritiansen scored her fourth of the game 1:55 into final half and the Bears were down three goals and on the ropes. Fortunately, Olschewske raised her game when her teammates needed her most. Carroll picked up the ensuing draw control and went straight for the goal. Olschewske shut her down and then did it again a minute later. She then picked up the ground ball and started a successful clear that resulted a Newman goal to close the gap to 8-6. Weigel assisted on the play. Four minutes later, Olchewske stymied Canton's leading scorer Tressa Goolden (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) and Weigel capitalized with a free-position goal to get the Bears within one. Olschewske stopped Carroll again with just over 18 minutes remaining, and Newman tied the game at 17:24 with a man-down, free-position attempt.   The teams went at each other without scoring for the next 12 minutes, largely due to excellent goaltending at both ends of the field. Olschewske racked up four more saves during the stretch including a stop of Carroll on a free position. Canton sophomore goalie Becca Kieffer (Lee Center, N.Y./Rome Free Academy) was nearly as good, recording two saves and a stop of Weigel on a free position.   It was Wall who finally broke the draw on a pass from McClusky with 6:28 left, but the Kangaroos weren't done. After another Kieffer save, Carroll connected with Nutter to get the Kangaroos even with 5:35 to play.
