Gameday! Lehigh vs Rutgers, Winter Storm Skylar Impacts College Lacrosse

The Morning Call

     Today we have some great lacrosse on hand for you all.
There are actually more games than originally scheduled today, because of Winter Storm Skylar. This storm pushed a few Tuesday games back to Wednesday. So, We get to load up on lacrosse today. The biggest game today is Lehigh vs Rutgers. That would be a statement win for Lehigh and would be a bounce back game for Rutgers.

 Game Notes

UMass Lowell vs UMass
     This is one of the games that was rescheduled from yesterday. This should be a good game as both teams are pretty equal this year it seems. UMass Lowell is actually pretty hot right now as they have some good wins and a great offense. UMass has been struggling this season so far. The Minutemen really just need to get back to those old days where UMass was a staple program in the sport.

Hofstra vs Monmouth
     A little New York Metropolitan battle in Hempstead today. This game is the other game that was pushed back from yesterday due to the weather. Hofstra is coming off of a huge win over North Carolina where they just dominated the Tar Heels. Hofstra should have some great momentum today as well. I'm not sure if the pride are going to wear the Stoneman Douglas warmup shirts or not. Those were cool and very powerful on Saturday. Monmouth is a good program in the MAAC and they could really give it to Hofstra if they wanted to. This will be a great matchup between two good teams.

Richmond vs North Carolina
     The Spiders will welcome in the North Carolina Tar Heels today in which should be a great contest. Richmond has had some trouble with such a young team, especially on the defensive side of the field. This could be a huge momentum swinging win for the Spiders if they can pull it off. North Carolina has had their own struggles this season as well. They have been letting so many teams get close and almost take the game. North Carolina needs to learn how to play a full four quarters of lacrosse. This is a big game for both squads.

Lehigh vs Rutgers
    I feel that this game could be the biggest midweek game of the year. Lehigh needs a statement win to get more credibility, at least in my book. Lehigh cracked the top 20 this week and that is great, but now they have to show what they can do. I team like Rutgers is a perfect team to get a statement win over. Lehigh upset Army on Saturday, so they should still have some great momentum and energy. Rutgers is coming off an overtime loss against Princeton. That was a very tough game and I know that loss had to sting. Rutgers will be looking to get back on track with a win.
