Men's Lacrosse 2018

Since I don't think anyone is starting a thread for each game, figured it could all be thrown in here.

I KNOW it's a scrimmage. But. Losing to a NEC school at home is bad. http://gohofstra.com/boxscore.aspx?id=8358&path=mlax

Concannon once again putting up a good save % was the only thing helping this team. He was top 5 in the country last year, and will have to be again this year, it looks like.

Do scores matter in a scrimmage?

Technically, no. If this was fall ball, I wouldn't care, because that's when you're trying people out, running plays you usually wouldn't, and just working out things. But this was their only tune-up for the season, and they should have run all over a team like this, especially looking at the lineup they used.

Hofstra was leading at the half vs. Hobart, then changed FO specialists and went 1-6 in the second half. In his postgame video, Coach Tierney said wing play needs to improve. From what I saw in the first half, I would agree. Let's see how much the team improves in the next 10 days. Ohio State away and Villanova (who defeated Penn State) at home will certainly test Hofstra's mettle. FYI, we also scrimmaged Syracuse and Le Moyne a week ago.

On another subject, nice to see G Jack Concannon and D Brett Osman receive recognition for their performances over the past couple of years:

Saw Seth before the Hobart scrimmage and he said they were dealing with lots of injuries; hopefully they get healthy before the Ohio State opener...Amazing how pre season injuries miraculously heal when the games are for real.

And down they go in the opener. Go down 5-0 in the first quarter, don't expect to win. To be fair, they rallied and at least made it close. But not enough, as they fall at Ohio State 9-7.

Strong comeback against one of the top team's in the country...we got it to 7-6. Also, our first game of the season. It was Ohio State's third...we'll be fine.

Touché. Only saving grace is that the CAA this year appears to be weak
