March 31: A strong fourth quarter helped the Clarkson University Men's Lacrosse team defeat local rivals SUNY Potsdam 8-4 on Tuesday afternoon at Hantz Turf Field. Clarkson improves to 4-4 on the season while Potsdam is now 4-3. Potsdam would be first to score, with Eric Soderquist picking up a goal at 8:33. A man-up goal from senior Matthew Gold (Pittsford, NY) at 6:26 and then a goal from senior Corey Herrington (Camillus, NY) 0:43 gave Clarkson a 2-1 lead after one quarter of play. Herrington added a second goal at 7:17 in the second quarter to double the Clarkson lead. After a Potsdam goal at 6:35, Herrington scored his third goal of the game to make the score 4-2. Potsdam was able to score with just seven seconds left in the quarter to draw within one at halftime. The Bears would score the first goal of the second half to tie the game up, but it would be the last goal they scored.  Senior Dylan Hrebenach (Saratoga Springs, NY) scored at 9:33 in the third quarter to give Clarkson a lead they would not relinquish. Sophomore Ryan St. Croix (Camillus, NY), senior Mark Nortz (Lowville, NY), and freshman Mark Uhlig (Castleton, NY) all scored goals in the fourth quarter to close out the victory. Sophomore goalkeeper Nick Strandholm (Happy Valley, OR) made 11 saves and senior Dylan Broomfield (Clinton, NY) won 10 of 16 faceoffs. Clarkson held a 37-23 advantage in shots and a 34-26 advantage on ground balls. Broomfield had eight of those ground balls while Strandholm scooped up five. Clarkson's next game will be on Saturday when they travel to Schenectady to play Union at 2:00 pm. 

March 28: A career-high five goals from sophomore Ryan St. Croix (Camillus, NY) led the Clarkson University Men's Lacrosse team to an 11-9 upset over 18th-ranked Rensselaer on Saturday afternoon. Clarkson now has a 3-4 overall record and is 1-1 in Liberty League games. The win snaps a three game losing streak for the Golden Knights. Rensselaer is now 7-3 overall and has a 2-1 Liberty League record. In the past three games, all Clarkson losses, the Green and Gold had struggled in the first period, getting outscored 14-2 in the first 15 minutes across the three contests. On Saturday, that would change as Clarkson jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first seven minutes and finished the first period with a 5-2 lead. St. Croix had three of those five goals with senior Mark Nortz (Lowville, NY) and sophomore Ryan DaRin (Manlius, NY) both adding a goal apiece. The second quarter would be dominated by the Engineers as they scored four unanswered goals to take a 6-5 lead into halftime. St. Croix added a fourth goal at 11:25 in the third period followed by freshman Sam Groves (Milton, NY) scoring at 6:21 to give Clarkson a 7-6 lead. Two straight RPI goals put them back on top, but senior Matthew Gold (Pittsford, NY) scored with 29 seconds left in the third to even the score heading into the final quarter. Rensselaer scored 30 seconds into the fourth to take a 9-8 lead, but it would be the final goal they scored. Senior Corey Herrington (Camillus, NY) scored at 12:09 before St. Croix scored his fifth and final goal at 10:37 to give Clarkson a lead they would not relinquish. Nortz scored his second goal of the game at 9:33 to give Clarkson a two-goal cushion that would end up being their final margin of victory. Sophomore goalkeeper Nick Strandholm (Happy Valley, OR) finished with 10 saves in net. Senior Dylan Broomfield (Clinton, NY) was strong on the faceoff, winning 16 of 24 opportunities. Broomfield led the team with 12 ground balls with Stradholm collecting five. Clarkson held a 35-32 advantage in shots and a 37-28 advantage in ground balls.

March 28: A stellar defensive effort which caused 16 turnovers and limited Union College to only four goals and an opportunistic offense which outscored the Dutchmen 4-1 in the second half lifted St. Lawrence University's men's lacrosse team to a 7-4 win over the third-ranked Dutchmen in a Liberty League lacrosse game played on Lou Saban Field at Canton College Saturday afternoon. The Saints, now 5-4 overall and 2-0 in Liberty League play won their third straight while Union, 6-2, 1-1, lost for the second time in a row in a game played under clear, but cold conditions. SLU scored a pair of last second goals in the game, the first with four seconds to go in the first half on a shot by Jamie Denicola off Conor Healey's feed to tie the game at 3-3 and the second on a shot by Andrew Jarrett that caught the net as time ran out in the third period to give the Saints a 6-3 lead after three. SLU made it a 7-3 game with 9:57 to go in regulation on Healey's 20th of the season and while Tom Stanton brought Union to within 7-4 with 6:01 to play, the Saints combined strong defense with a possession game to run out the rest of the clock without further scoring. "When we hit a rough patch a week or so ago, we looked at this game as a test to see how we would respond," said Saint coach Mike Mahoney. "I am pleased with both our effort and our execution against a very good Union team. This is a huge conference win for us, and hopefully we can keep building from here." The Saints matched their best defensive performance in terms of goals allowed as Andrew Butturini made six saves on ten shots on goal and came up with some big forced turnovers in the defensive end. Macky Lynch caused four turnovers and had four ground balls and Jack Roberts caused five turnovers and had three ground balls to pace the Saint defense. Healey led the attack with two goals and an assist while Tommy Hovey, Jeremy Vautour and Austin Nadeau joined Denicola and Jarrett in the goal-scoring column. Charlie Ross scored twice for Union while Stanton and Paul Alberti had the other goals. Union goalie Stefan Basile had an outstanding game for the Dutchmen, making 15 saves, seven of them coming in the first period. Alberti opened the scoring for Union with 7:24 to go in the first period, but the Saints tied it on Hovey's 26th of the year from Vautour with 3:16 left. Healey put SLU up 2-1 with 12:28 to go in the second quarter, but Ross scored a pair to put Union ahead 3-2 with 1:42 to go before Denicola's goal with four second left knotted it at the half. Nadeau gave the Saints the lead 4:45 into the second half and Vautour scored in traffic with 1:02 left before Jarrett's buzzer-beater to end the period, giving the Saints their 6-3 lead. SLU outshot Union 39-22 with 22 shots on net to 10 for the Dutchmen. The Saints were 19 of 22 on clears while Union was 16 of 19 and SLU had a 20-18 edge in ground balls. Union had 26 turnovers and the Saints 18 and the Dutchmen were scoreless in four man-up chances while the Saints did not score in two extra man opportunities. SLU is scheduled to host Plattsburgh Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. while Union plays at St. John Fisher on Wednesday at 4.

March 24: The Saint trio of Tommy Hovey, Conor Healey and Jeremy Vautour combined for a dozen goals and St. Lawrence University's men's lacrosse team shook off a 2-0 start by Geneseo with ten straight goals en route a 18-6 NCAA Division III lacrosse victory over the Blue Knights in a game played at the Rochester Institute of Technology on Tuesday. The Saints won their second straight and pulled even at 4-4 on the season while Geneseo is 4-2 after Tuesday's loss. SLU will host Union on Saturday in a Liberty League game. Hovey scored six goals, Healey had four goals and two assists and Vautour two goals and three assists to pace the Saint attack. While the Saints gave up the game's first two goals, goaltender Andrew Butturini and the Saint defense shut the Knights down the rest of the way in the first half and SLU scored the next 10 goals in the game. Hovey had three goals and Healey had two goals and an assist in the first-half run. The Saints had a 12-2 lead early in the third period and led 14-4 after three. Vautour, Hovey, Charlie Jennings and Healey all scored to complete the Saint scoring run before Geneseo's Steve Aziz stopped the Saint goal storm with a man-up score at 9:17 of the third. Hovey and Healey then scored to make it 14-4 after three.  Butturini made nine saves on 15 shots in 45 minutes for the win while Nick Ford stopped three of five shots in the final period. Alex Howe had six saves for Geneseo. Caleb Kane had three ground balls and caused two turnovers for the Saint defense while Kelsey Reed was seven for 11 and Alex Dietsch seven for 12 on faceoffs. The Saints outshot Geneseo 40-35 and had a 36-30 edge in ground balls. SLU went seven for eight in man-up opportunities and was successful on 13 of 18 clears.

March 31: Clarkson University (4-4) broke a 4-4 tie in the third quarter en route to an 8-4 victory over the SUNY Potsdam men's lacrosse team (4-3) on Tuesday afternoon at Hantz Field. Bears junior goalie Pete Gropp (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) made a career-high 20 saves and sophomore attackman Berkley Stone (Madison, Conn./Daniel Hand) scored twice. Corey Herrington scored three goals for the Golden Knights and Matthew Gold added a goal and two assists.   Reigning SUNYAC Player of the Week, freshman Eric Soderquist (Watertown, N.Y./Watertown) got Potsdam on the board first with an unassisted marker at 8:33. Two minutes later Gold tied the score with a man-up goal. With 43 seconds left in the opening quarter, Herrington found the back of the net to make it 2-1 Clarkson.   Herrington notched his second of the day on the man-advantage at 7:17 of the second 15 minutes. Just 42 seconds later, Bears senior captain Jon Woodworth (Great Bend, N.Y./Carthage) broke Potsdam's drought to close the gap to 3-2. Herrington completed his hat trick at 4:32. It looked as if the Bears would head into the break down two, but Stone struck on a feed from junior captain Pat Bonafede (Churchville, N.Y./Churchville-Chili) with seven seconds left.   Woodworth set up Stone four and a half minutes into the third quarter and the game was even at 4-4. Clarkson outshot the Bears 14-4 in the quarter, but Gropp turned aside 11 of the Golden Knights' attempts. However, Dylan Hrebenach scored what proved to be the game-winner at 9:33. Clarkson led 5-4 after 45 minutes.   The Golden Knights scored three times in the first seven and a half minutes of the fourth quarter. Ryan St. Croix struck at 14:12, Mark Nortz at 13:38 and Mark Uhlig closed the scoring at 8:35. Potsdam was unable to gain any ground after the run.   Clarkson goalie Nick Strandholm made 11 saves to earn the victory.   The Golden Knights outshot the Bears 37-23 and picked up 34 ground balls to Potsdam's 26. The Bears were 0-for-2 in extra-man opportunities and Clarkson was 2-for-5.   With his performance, Gropp now leads the SUNYAC in goals-against-average (5.70) and save percentage (.692)   The Bears look to bounce back tomorrow night at 7 p.m. when they head to SUNY Canton to take on the Kangaroos.

March 28: The SUNY Potsdam men's lacrosse team (4-2, 1-0 SUNYAC) withstood a late charge from SUNY Geneseo (4-3, 0-1) to down the Blue Knights in its SUNYAC opener 8-7. Freshman attackman Eric Soderquist (Watertown, N.Y.) led the Bears with two goals and an assist and senior captain Jon Woodworth (Great Bend, N.Y./Carthage) and freshman attackman Dalston Day (Akwesasne, N.Y./Salmon River) each scored twice. Junior goalie Pete Gropp (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) stopped 12 shots for his and Potsdam's fourth consecutive win.   The Bears opened up a 3-0 lead over the first seven minutes of the contest. Day put Potsdam up for good on a helper from Soderquist at 12:28. Two minutes later, Soderquist netted his first of the day. At 8:03, sophomore attackman Matt Moran (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) extended the lead to three. Geneseo senior goalie Alex Howell (Pittsford, N.Y./Pittsford Sutherland) was injured on the play and replaced by freshman Michael Yehl (Churchville, N.Y./Churchville-Chili). At the two-minute mark Blue Knights junior midfielder Joe Chiara (Latham, N.Y./Shaker) finally beat Gropp with a rocket from the right side and Geneseo trailed 3-1 after one quarter.   Just over two minutes into the second stanza, junior long stick midfielder Lindsey Pound (Henderson, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) found Day to make it a 4-1 contest. Fifty-two seconds later, senior attackman Andre Keating (Ithaca, N.Y./Ithaca) scored the second and final goal of the second quarter and Geneseo trailed just 4-2 at the break.   Woodworth muscled his way in for two unassisted markers in the third quarter at 10:23 and 4:03. However, senior attackman Cory Gleasman (Clinton, N.Y./Clinton) struck in between the goals at 8:36 to keep the Blue Knights within striking distance. Potsdam led 6-3 after 45 minutes.   Geneseo senior attackman Steven Cregan (Rochester, N.Y./Brighton) opened the final quarter's scoring with a goal at 7:58 to make it a two-goal deficit again. Less than a minute later, junior captain Pat Bonafede (Churchville, N.Y./Churchville-Chili) scored what the Bears hoped would be a momentum-killing goal and Potsdam led 7-4 with just 6:59 to play. There was no change in score over the next four minutes, but the Blue Knights broke the drought with two goals to in 24 seconds to make it 7-6. Senior midfielder Steve Aziz (Jamesville, N.Y./Jamesville-DeWitt) struck at 2:56 and Keating got his second of the game at 2:32.   Geneseo won the ensuing faceoff, but Bears junior attackman Ed Doherty (Amherst, N.Y./Amherst) forced a turnover and picked up the ground ball. Potsdam ran over a minute off the clock and with 56 seconds left, Soderquist ran the ball in from the right corner and fired a shot over a Blue Knight defender and Yehl to make it 8-6. Geneseo still wasn't finished and notched another faceoff win. At the 34-second mark, Cregan scored his second of the day to make it 8-7. The Blue Knights didn't get another chance and Potsdam celebrated a 1-0 start to conference play.   Howell allowed three goals in the opening 6:57. Yehl was solid over the remainder of the game, allowing five goals and making seven saves.   Geneseo outshot Potsdam 41-24 and picked up 31 ground balls to the Bears 25. Potsdam was 0-for-4 on the man advantage and the Blue Knights went 0-for-1.   The Bears have won the last four home games against Geneseo dating back to 2011.   Potsdam is back in action when the Bears "host" Clarkson University on Tuesday, March 31, at Clarkson's Hantz Field at 4 p.m. The Bears are looking for their first win over the Golden Knights since 2007. Three of the last for contests have been decided by just a single goal.

March 28: The SUNY Canton men's lacrosse team was unable to overcome an early deficit dropping a 16-3 road contest to host Utica College on Saturday afternoon.   Zack Stevenson scored twice for the Pioneers (6-2) to give the hosts a 2-0 lead after one quarter. Utica would strike six times in the second stanza to take a commanding 8-0 lead into intermission. Corey Spuck (Rochester, NY) stopped 12 shots in the opening 30 minutes for the Roos (0-6).   SUNY Canton got on the board 23 seconds into the fourth quarter on Ryan Cardiff's (Albany, NY) ninth goal of the season. He would add his second of the game two minutes later and Chris Gamble (Carthage, NY) netted his 10th of the season for the 16-3 final.   Spuck finished with 18 saves in goal for SUNY Canton, while Andrew Fiske (Winthrop, NY) replaced him making two stops in the final period. Andrew DiOrio, Kobi Johnson and Parker Smith all saw action between the pipes for Utica.   Devin Gruneisen (Potsdam, NY) posted a game-high six ground balls, while Taylor Mustizer (Adams, NY) tallied a team-high three caused turnovers. Gruneisen and Tony Carden (Franklin, MA) each earned four wins in the faceoff circle.   The men's lacrosse team returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts SUNY Potsdam at 7:00 p.m.

March 25: Senior Corey Spuck (Rochester, NY) had a tremendous game in net for the men's lacrosse team making 21 saves but Sam Siegel scored 2:19 into overtime to give visiting Castleton State College a 6-5 win on Wednesday evening in Canton.   The visitors got on the board first just 2:18 into the contest when Sean Paradis found the back of the net. The tally was the lone of the first quarter as the visitors led 1-0 after one. The Roos responded as Ryan Cardiff (Albany, NY) caged his sixth and seventh goals of the season in the second quarter, the second coming with just six seconds left in the half.   SUNY Canton held the 2-1 lead intermission as senior Spuck made 12 huge first half saves.   Castleton State scored a pair of goals 39 seconds apart to take a 3-2 lead early in the third quarter. The Roos responded with 7:58 remaining in the quarter as Cardiff earned the hat trick to knot the game at three.   The Spartans regained the one-goal lead when Alex Denny caged his fifth of the season. Cardiff proved he could also be the catalyst offensively setting up Garrett DiTullio's (Potsdam, NY) second goal of the season to tie the game once again, this time at four.   Steve Novak (Seymour, CT) gave the hosts their first lead of the second half with 9:19 remaining on his first goal of the season, but the Spartans responded just over a minute later off the stick of Siegel. Neither team could beat the opposing goalie the final eight minutes of regulation sending the game to overtime.   Siegel would come up with the heroics 2:19 into overtime to secure the win for Castleton State.   Spuck turned aside 21 shots, one off his season high, while Sam Polas made eight stops for the Spartans. Tony Carden (Franklin, MA) was impressive for the Roos finishing with game-highs of eight ground balls and four caused turnovers.

March 28: Taking part in his final State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) opener, Plattsburgh State men's lacrosse senior Jack Felter notched five goals to lead the Cardinals in a 10-6 triumph over The College at Brockport at Kenny Shriver Stadium on Saturday afternoon.   Felter, who hails from Binghamton, N.Y., led the charge in the Cardinals' scoring attack while Mike Gay blasted in a pair of goals of his own as Plattsburgh State improved to 7-3 and 1-0 in SUNYAC play. The Golden Eagles, meanwhile, drop to 4-5 and 0-1 in conference play.   For all but 2:57, Plattsburgh State maintained the lead in the SUNYAC opener for both clubs and after Clifton Jackson began the scoring 1:36 in, Felter netted his first of the day off a pretty feed from Austin Belz to knot the score at one apiece.   That got the Cardinals' offense humming and after a score from Gay and Ryan Hubbard's tally from Brendan Damm the visitors opened up a 3-1 edge on their western New York rivals.   Brockport responded with a pair of goals through the final 5:20 of the first quarter which sent the teams to the short intermission knotted at three each.   It didn't take too long for the Cardinals to maneuver back on top as Damm gave the visitors a lead they would never surrender with a score off an assist from Matt Renko 1:59 into the second frame. Gay and Felter would each sling in another in the next 6:10 to push the Plattsburgh State lead to 6-3.   The Golden Eagles put a scare into the Cardinals when John Countryman and Casey Cleary found the back of the net in the final 4:25 of the second to pull within 6-5 heading to the halftime break.   James Read figured into exactly 100-percent of the offense in the third quarter when the senior ripped in an unassisted goal with 10:16 remaining in the 15-minute stanza.   From there, Felter took center stage in the fourth by racking up three consecutive scores in the first 8:44 of the final quarter to put the Plattsburgh State win on ice. Marcus Palvino registered a man-up tally with 1:43 to go, but the Golden Eagles pulled no closer thanks to another splendid effort between the pipes from Matt Massaria. The junior stopped 12 shots in the win and moves his record to 7-3.   A multitude of infraction by the Golden Eagles allowed the Cardinals to gain a whopping 11 attempts on the man advantage. For the game, Plattsburgh State finished 3-for-11 while playing with an extra man.   Joey Kromer won nine of his 19 face off opportunities and scooped up four ground balls to tie with Andy Krolczyk for the team lead. Brockport outshot the Cardinals 38-31.   One final road game stands between the Cardinals and their return to the Field House Lacrosse Complex. On Wednesday night, Plattsburgh State will pay a visit to North Country nemesis and non-conference foe St. Lawrence University to lock horns with the Saints at 7 p.m. 

March 25: The mission for the Plattsburgh State men's lacrosse team was abundantly clear right from the opening faceoff. In its last non-conference tilt before State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) play begins, the Cardinals were on a quest for a big-time triumph over a strong opponent in order to head into their conference schedule with a full head of steam. Behind a game-high five goals by junior All-American Brendan Damm and another five from the combination of Jack Felter and Jame Read, the Cardinals demolished Bowdoin College 15-6 at the Owl Athletic Complex on the campus of Keene State College on Wednesday night. In their first triumph over a NESCAC foe since 2013, the Cardinals held a marked advantage in every statistical category including a 50-32 edge in total shots. Plattsburgh State ups its record to 6-3 while the Polar Bears sink to 1-6 with the setback. Led by Damm, Plattsburgh State uncorked its brand of run-and-gun offense right from the get-go. The Montauk, N.Y., product ripped in an unassisted tally just 2:21 in which began a stretch of five straight goals by the designated visiting team. All told through the first 15 minutes of action, the Cardinals received two scores from Damm and one each from Read and final-year man Brendan Cefalu who capitalized after snagging a ground ball on a two-on-one break with Austin Belz. Meanwhile, on the defensive end of the field, junior Matt Massaria stonewalled the Polar Bears time and time again. Of the 14 saves the Floral Park, N.Y., product came up with, seven of them came in the first quarter. It took almost 24 minutes before Bowdoin finally solved Massaria as Matthew Crowell sent one past the junior with 6:02 remaining in the second which made matters 5-1. That goal, though, was the only one the Polar Bears would register in a span of 45 minutes. Plattsburgh State's lead bulged to 7-1 before the first half was in the books. Damm and Felter accounted for one each in the second 15-minute frame and freshman Ryan Hubbard began to make his presence known, too. The Aquabogue, N.Y., native added a goal as well as an assist on Felter's tally to extend his point streak to eight games. Not entirely satisfied with a six-goal cushion, the Cardinals broke Bowdoin's spirit in the third with five unanswered scores to make matters 12-1. Hubbard beat Polar Bear netminder Peter Mumford for a pair through the course of that 15 minute span while Belz, Damm and Felter each stuck one in the back of the net. Bowdoin discovered the vast majority of its offense in the fourth with much of it coming from Brandon Rothman who totaled three of the five goals the Polar Bears scored in the last 15 minutes. Again, though, it was Damm, Felter and Read who continued their assault on Bowdoin's goal as each member of the trio scored one through the last quarter. Mumford made 18 stops for Bowdoin in the loss and the Polar Bears capitalized on two of their three man-up opportunities. Plattsburgh State went 1-for-2 with the extra attacker. A lengthy road trip is up next for the Cardinals as they dive right into SUNYAC play.

March 31: Fifth-ranked SUNY Cortland (7-1, 2-0 SUNYAC) won its fourth in a row with a 19-5 victory over the SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (1-7, 0-2) on Tuesday afternoon at Maxcy Turf Field. Red Dragons junior midfielder Ashley Gentile (Balwinsville, N.Y./C.W. Baker) had a game-high four goals and sophomore attack Kristen Ohberg (Brewster, N.Y./Brewster) had a contest-best five points on two goals and three assists. Junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) led the Bears with a goal and an assist.   Cortland opened the contest with a 9-0 run over the first 14 minutes. The stretch included two goals each from Gentile, and fellow midfielders Tara Monaghan (Stoney Point, N.Y./North Rockland), Nicole Bello (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) and Emma Hayes-Hurley. McClusky set up sophomore midfielder Murphy Newman (Canton, N.Y./Berkshire School) to get Potsdam on the board at 14:58. The Red Dragons closed the half with a 5-1 run, with Bears senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) scoring on an assist from sophomore midfielder Alyssa Ferenczy (Williamsville, N.Y./Williamsville South) with 18 seconds left in the half. Cortland led 13-2 at the break.   Potsdam opened the second half with goals from sophomore attack Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville-Hopkinton) at 22:01 and McClusky at 20:53. However, the Red Dragons wrapped up the game with a 6-1 run as time wound down. The Bears final goal was ESPN highlight quality. Senior captain Emily Petit (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury) forced a Cortland turnover behind Potsdam's goal and scooped up the ground ball. She then sprinted the length of the field through a sea of red and beat Red Dragon junior goalie Liz Ingalls (Centerport, N.Y./St. Anthony's) with a low rocket.   In goal, Bears sophomore Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made 11 saves. Cortland sophomore Jaclyn Beshlian (Wantagh, N.Y./Wantagh) earned the victory with four saves and two goals allowed in the first half. Ingalls allowed three goals in the final 30 minutes.   Potsdam is back in action on Saturday at 1 p.m. when the Bears host Morrisville State.  

March 28: The SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (1-6, 0-1 SUNYAC) fell to Buffalo State (2-5, 1-0) 12-8 in the teams' SUNYAC opener on Saturday afternoon at Maxcy Turf Field. Senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) matched a career-high with five goals for the Bears. Junior attack Sarah Lorusso (Lakeview, N.Y./Frontier) led all scorers with four goals and three assists for seven points for the Bengals.   Wall got Potsdam off to a fast start with two free-position goals in the opening 3:46. However, Buffalo State answered with six straight over the next 12 minutes, including two from freshman attack Alanna Herne (Tonawanda, N.Y./Tonawanda) and Lorusso's first of the day. Bears sophomore midfielder Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville) scored two of the next three and Potsdam trailed 6-4 at 9:45. The Bengals went on a 3-0 run to end the half and led 9-4 at the break.   Lorusso notched her third of the day at 27:29 of the second half with a free-position attempt. Potsdam countered with the next two from Wall at 26:19 and sophomore midfielder Murphy Newman (Canton, N.Y./Berkshire School) at 22:30. Junior defender Maggie McCabe (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) assisted on Wall's goal. The teams traded the final four goals of the contest. Lorusso's fourth goal came at 19:10 followed by Wall's fourth 31 seconds later. Herne set up Buffalo State senior midfielder Rebecca Galanti (Hamburg, N.Y./Frontier) for a man-up goal at 4:55. Wall buried a pretty pass from junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) to close the scoring at 2:37.   In goal, sophomore Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made five saves for Potsdam. Senior Colleen George (Johnson City, N.Y./Maine-Endwell) earned the victory with a 12-save performance for the Bengals.   The Bears outshot Buffalo State 30-23 and picked up 18 ground balls to the Bengals 13. Potsdam senior attack Bailey Weigel (East Amherst, N.Y./Williamsville East) recorded nine draw controls.   With her big day, Wall now has 76 goals and 13 assists for 89 points. She moves into eighth on the Bears' all-time scoring list and sixth on the goals scored list. McClusky's assist moves her into a tie for fifth place on the program's scoring list with 101 points and third on the assists list with 43.

March 29: Emily Livecchi scored her fourth goal of the game with 5:18 to go in regulation as the Rochester Institute of Technology edged St. Lawrence University 9-8 in a Liberty League women's lacrosse game in Rochester on Sunday. RIT improves to 2-0 in league play and 4-4 overall on the season while the Saints are 2-6 overall and 0-2 in league play after coming up short despite two good efforts on opening weekend. The game was a see-saw affair from the start with RIT grabbing a two-goal lead with back-to-back scores just 11 seconds apart with just over 12 minutes left in the first half. Sage Sarkes scored at 12:14, then won the draw following that goal and fed Corinna Mandell for a goal at 12:03 to give the Tigers a 5-3 lead. Abigail Owens, who led the Saints with three goals, cut the RIT lead to 6-5 from Emma Garfield with just one second to go in the first half and the Saints tied the game on Kara Hurley's free position goal early in the second half. The Saints took a 8-7 lead on Ashley Norris' goal with 12:25 to go in the game, but RIT tied it with 8:18 left and won it on Livecchi's goal with 5:18 to play. Julia Mitiguy, Michaela Maybee and Chloe Knapp contributed single goals for the Saints while Kiera Taussig had five ground balls and caused three turnovers. Addy Cunningham made 12 saves in goal for the Saints while Caitlin Conway had nine saves for RIT. The game was as close statistically as it was on the scoreboard as RIT had a slight 24-22 edge in shots and a 28-24 advantage in ground balls. RIT won 12 of 18 draws and free position chances were even at 8-8. The Saints are scheduled to host Clarkson at North Country Field on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

March 27: The University of Rochester built a 5-2 lead in the first half and held off St. Lawrence University for a 7-4 Liberty League women's lacrosse victory in the league opener for both teams at Rochester on Friday. The Saints, 2-5 overall and 0-1 in league play,  jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Chloe Knapp and Kara Hurley in the first half, but Jamie Wallach scored her 24th of the year for Rochester, now 5-3 and 1-0 in league action, and Madeline Levi scored back-to-back goals at 11:37 and 10:20 of the first half to give Rochester a 3-2 lead. Breanna Taylor and Lauren Basil scored before the intermission to give UR its 5-2 lead. Kiera Taussig cut the Rochester lead to 5-3 with just over 20 minutes to play in the game, but Elisabeth Watson's free position goal and a goal by Mara Karpp made it 7-3 before Taussig scored her second of the day on a free position to make it a 7-4 game with 49 seconds left. Addie Cunningham had 10 saves for the Saints while Maire Prosak made nine stops for Rochester. SLU had a 22-21 edge in shots and a 7-6 edge in draw controls. SLU was 13 for 20 on clears while the Yellowjackets had a 26-22 edge in ground balls.

March 28: One day after its five game-winning streak was snapped at RIT, the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team bounced back with a 8-7 win over Rochester on Saturday afternoon. Clarkson now holds a 6-2 record overall and is 1-1 in the Liberty League while Rochester has a 5-4 overall record and  is also 1-1 in Liberty League games. Sophomore Paige Fayette (Theresa, NY) opened the scoring at 27:55 with her ninth goal of the season. Rochester would score next to tie the game at one, but three straight Golden Knight goals, two more by Fayette and one by junior Christine Wright (Watertown, NY), gave Clarkson a 4-1 lead. The Yellow Jackets went on a three goal run of their own to tie the game at 4 at 4:41 in the first. A goal by freshman Taylor Collins (Syracuse, NY) off a pass from Fayette at 3:34 along with a goal by junior Stephanie Lynch (Baldwinsville, NY) at 1:22 gave Clarkson a 6-4 heading into halftime. Rochester scored the first two goals of the second half to tie the game at 6, but Wright scored a free position goal at 17:22 and her third goal of the game at 7:09 to give Clarkson a 8-6 lead. Rochester drew within one at 2:39 on a free position goal which set up a tense final few minutes. Rochester had a free position shot saved along with a free position attempt with less than a second left. The Yellow Jackets could not get a shot off on that last free position attempt and Clarkson held on for an 8-7 victory. Junior goalkeeper Dani Tani (Heuvelton, NY) made seven saves in the game. Wright led Clarkson with six points on three goals and three assists while Fayette had four of her own on three goals and one assist. Collins and Wright both had a team-high three groundballs with freshman Lynette Smith (Penn Yan, NY) scooping up two ground balls as well. Clarkson was outshot 25-16, but held a 19-14 advantage in groundballs. Clarkson will continue Liberty League play on Wednesday when they travel to St. Lawrence for a 4:00 pm game.

March 27: A five-game winning streak came to an end for the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team as the Golden Knights fell 6-4 at RIT on Friday afternoon in their Liberty League opener. Clarkson, which stands at 5-2 overall, will continue conference play on Saturday when it plays at the University of Rochester in a 2:00 p.m. contest. The Knights battled RIT (3-4, 1-0) to a 3-3 draw after the opening 30 minutes, but the Tigers scored the first three goals in the second half and held off the Green and Gold at the end to pull out the win at home. Sophomore Paige Fayette (Theresa, NY) and freshman Taylor Collins (Syracuse, NY) scored one goal and one assist each to pace the Clarkson offense. Juniors Emma Jeffery (Baldwinsville, NY) and Stephanie Lynch (Baldwinsville, NY) scored one goal apiece. The Knights outshot the Tigers 26-12, while RIT held the edge in ground balls, 16-13. Dani Tani (Heuvelton, NY) posted four saves in the Clarkson goal.

March 25/29: The women’s lacrosse team split a pair of games this week earning a 17-8 victory against Morrisville State College on Saturday, following a 14-13 loss to Oswego State on Wednesday.

March 14: Junior Robyn Carroll (Bowmanville, ON) and senior Tressa Goolden (Canton, NY) combined for 13 goals as the SUNY Canton women's lacrosse team led from start to finish in a 17-8 road victory against Cazenovia College on Saturday.   Goolden started right where she left off last season netting her first of the season just 3:30 into the contest. High school teammate Sarah Stone (Canton, NY) scored off a feed from Megan Poupore (Massena, NY) less than a minute later and Carroll quickly got on the scoreboard as the Roos led 3-0 less than six minutes in.   Carroll and Goolden would score two more each as the Roos (1-0) opened up a 7-1 advantage and led 7-4 at intermission.   Stone and Carroll scored a pair out of half with Keri Dempsey (Wappingers Falls, NY) setting up the Carroll tally. Cazenovia (0-2) would get one back on an unassisted tally from Kaitlin Sheppard, but the Roos responded with three straight. Lora Ardoin (Houston, TX) found Goolden, Carroll caged an unassisted marker and Carroll set up Ardoin's first of the season.   Goolden added her fifth of the game with 14:17 remaining and sophomore Katelynn Nutter (Carthage,  NY) followed suit scoring her first collegiate goal 27 seconds later. Carroll scored twice more and Goolden netted her sixth of the game as the Roos cruised to the 17-8 victory.   Dempsey finished with team-highs of four ground balls and two caused turnovers. Carroll and Amanda Woods (Williamsville, NY) led the way with a game-high three draw controls each. Becca Kieffer (Lee Center, NY) stopped nine shots in her first win of the season, while Abigail Kortz made 10 saves for Cazenovia.
