Wow! That is the only word that comes to mind when I think about all the action that went down on Conference Tournament Thursday. It was awesome having that much lacrosse on and it was all great lacrosse!

America East Tournament

#2 Stony Brook 4 vs #3 Vermont 8

The Catamouts were able to get revenge on the Seawolves as they took this one. This game was pretty tight for most of the way, but Vermont had the edge at the end and was able to pull out the win.

This was almost an upset here. UMass Lowell got out to an early lead, but the Danes rebounded big time in the second half and got the win to advance.

Big East Tournament

#1 Denver 10 vs #4 Marquette 7

The Hoya's were able to use a late push to top the Wildcats and make it back to the Big East championship game for the first time since 2015.

Rutgers shoots themselves in the foot for the third year in a row as their NCAA tournament hopes diminish again. Maryland is able to pull away late in this very tight game and get the win.

#2 Johns Hopkins 6 vs #3 Ohio State 5

This game was so good that we even had a fight and ejections. Ohio State really controlled the pace but Hopkins came thru at the end to put this one away and move on.

The Fight

CAA Tournament

#1 UMass 10 vs #4 Hofstra 6

This game was pretty back and fourth but UMass had the momentum in the end and they get the win. Also, there were no half field goals from UMass this year. Dang!

These two teams were head to head the entire game. This would eventually send the game into overtime where Towson would real in the W.

MAAC Tournament

#1 Quinnipiac 10 vs #4 Canisius 11 OT

This was a very tight back and fourth game. There were many different lead changes, but in the end Detroit Mercy held off Monmouth and got the win.

The Hawks were able to hold off the Pioneers in a very close one. This game could have gone either way at any moment, but Saint Joe's held out and topped Sacred Heart.

Bobby Mo came to play fellas. They would really run away with this game in the second half and there was nothing Bryant could do about it.

This game started out looking like a good one, until Richmond took over. Teddy Hatfield lead the Spiders to victory with 6 goals as they breezed passed Furman in the second half.

This game was just straight up great! High Point was on fire in the first half and then the Dolphins came all the way back from down 9-4 at half and tied the game up late to send it to OT. The Dolphins would get the win in OT and move on.
