UNH no match for women’s lacrosse, Mickenzie Larivee stars yet again

When playing host to the University of New Hampshire Wednesday on Nickerson Field, the Terriers (7-6, 4-2 Patriot League) found themselves down early, but eventually cruised to a 14-7 victory in their last non-conference game of […]

Ally Adams, Kelly Mathews lead diverse women’s lacrosse attack vs. UNH

With 16 players registering a point across the 2016 season, the Boston University women’s lacrosse team often presents a perplexing puzzle to its opponents: try and shut down one attacker, and another — if not several more — emerges.  This was on full display Wednesday afternoon when BU (7-6, 4-2 Patriot League) defeated the University of New Hampshire 14-7 in […]

After Brendan Homire’s injury, men’s lacrosse searches for creativity

While the Boston University men’s lacrosse team’s 15-4 defeat this past weekend to No. 20 United States Military Academy was concerning, the toughest pill to swallow was arguably the injury sustained by midfielder Brendan Homire. The freshman went down clenching his right knee, and any prolonged absence would require the Terriers (8-4, 3-3 Patriot League) to be without their team […]

Mallory Collins continues to lead women’s lacrosse

The Boston University women’s lacrosse team saw several players step up in this past weekend’s win over Lafayette College, the least of which was senior attack Mallory Collins.

Army storms past men’s lacrosse, answers few and far between

There’s no other way to splice it: the United States Military Academy visited Nickerson Field Saturday afternoon and outplayed the Boston University men’s lacrosse team from start to finish. The Terriers (8-4, 3-3 Patriot League) had no answers for a dominant Black Knight (8-3, 5-1 Patriot League) squad and ultimately fell 15-4 in what marked their worst defeat of the […]
