The women’s game was a lopsided and fully expected disemboweling of Colgate, 20-4. Inside Lacrosse called the win “convincing.” Yes. And Hiroshima was a “convincing” military exercise. Good luck to Colgate in trying to floss those shreds of shoelace and large intestine out of their mouths. Minty.
Meanwhile, the unranked men’s team pulled off the opposite — a pretty significant upset over the seventh-seeded Fighting Irish. Maryland got serious on defense and forced Notre Dame into 22 turnovers. That’s not how you win lacrosse games, Irish. Where be yer Pot O’ Gold? Aye…ye fumbled it away? Me eyes are cryin.
But in any case, this just continues the Terps’ parallelisms to the men’s basketball team…a first-round upset of a favored but probably overrated team with a weak schedule. If the parallels are to continue, they’ll lose in the next round…so let’s hope the similarities end here.
Up next for the men? Syracuse, next Saturday. Goterps.
