    A 14-7 buttwhuppin. Geez, so much talent yet we cant beat decent teams. We’ve had a bad habit this year of zoning out and giving up 5-0 runs to our opponent. Doubled down on that tonite with two 5-0 runs. We embarrassed ourselves. Ugh

    Surprising that men’s lacrosse is not better based on expectations a few years back. Again this year, they started as a potential top 12 team and then faded. Now looks like a second tier effort that cannot compete with strong programs. Recruiting, seemingly, is not strong enough and/or the system is not sufficiently rigirous.

    Not really sure H2 for reasons. What I see is a loss of focus during games vs Top 20 teams leading to 4-5 goal runs.We respond but only with 2-3 goal runs.it is not talent. Cassesse has brought in top level recruits.Loss of focus not as big an issue 1st half of the season. It has tanked the 2nd half repeatedly.
    Why? Well, I have backed away from the ledge :) so my thought is youth. We are a very young team. We have 5 seniors , 3 of whom are key players.
    Bucknell? Not sure why but Cassesse sat Spence for the w2 backup up goalies. Kirst gave up 8 goals before being replaced.The back ups gave up 10 goals. Spence gave up 4. He alone had more saves then goals.
    On to Colgate for start of playoffs. Perhaps we can revive the early season team to advance.

    Kirst made 1 save on 9 shots, Kiernan no saves on 2 shots, buffs have some snipers and out shot us by a wide margin but come on

    wonder if Spence was in dog house for some infraction?

    Didnt think of that but perhaps so. Whatever the reason the change put us in a huge hole.
    Hopefully it will focus the kids for the next game.
    A season of disappointed expectations.
