Lehigh University exposes Achilles’ heel of men’s lacrosse in narrow defeat

In an important Patriot League matchup, the Terriers (8-3, 3-2 Patriot League) had an uncharacteristic performance on the offensive end, turning the ball over 18 times in an 8-7 loss to the […]

Narrow scorelines have treated the No. 20 Boston University men’s lacrosse team well in 2016, but Saturday’s version of a nail-biter at Nickerson Field was far from kind. With inopportune turnovers, a lack of execution and an opponent desperate for a win, the Terriers (8-3, 3-2 Patriot League) were defeated 8-7 by Lehigh University. The Mountain Hawks (6-4, 4-2 Patriot […]

The buzzword surrounding the No. 20 Boston University men’s lacrosse team’s rise is “maturity,” but a key piece is still relatively new to college lacrosse. Freshman defenseman Quintin Germain has started every game of BU’s (8-2, 3-1 Patriot League) 2016 season and is a major reason why the team allows only 8.6 goals a game. The Huntington, New York native […]
