The 24th-ranked men’s lacrosse team never looked to be in danger of losing in its 13-6 win against Utica College yesterday at Higgins Stadium.
When the men’s lacrosse team begins its arduous Empire 8 Conference schedule this season, it will possess an arsenal of veterans and younger players on its attack, who have been the driving force to a 5—3 overall record.
For a quarter it seemed as if the upstart men’s lacrosse team would give the third-ranked SUNY-Cortland Red Dragons a run for their money. Then Cortland took control and ran the Bombers off the field in the visitors’ 9-3 win yesterday at Higgins Stadium.
For three quarters, the Bombers looked like a team ready to take on the third best team in Division III. The fourth quarter almost ended their perfect start to the season.
Most coaches would have ripped their team for the type of performance the men’s lacrosse submitted in in the first quarter of Wednesday’s season-opening 13-8 victory against Lycoming, but Head Coach Jeff Long is not most coaches.
