This marks the tenth time Penn State has hosted a round of the NCAA Tournament and the first time since 2013 they have hosted the first and second rounds. "They bounced back well and really came in hot to the NCAA Tournament". The No. 3 seed Long Island University/LIU Post, plays the No. 6 seed New York Institute of Technology in the first round, on the campus of the No. 2 seed Le Moyne. Stukenberg, Hartshorn and Giles notched the final goals as Maryland won, 14-6. We played really well defensively today.
"What a wonderful night and day for Navy women's lacrosse", head coach Cindy Timchal said after the official announcement. "It doesn't matter where we are going, but hopefully we can make the best of that". Calvin is 0-1 in NCAA Tournament play. Sophomore midfielder Jen Giles had four points (1G, 3A) while Whittle (1G, 2A) and senior attacker Caroline Wannen (3A) also had multiple points. We had each others' back.
Much like last game against Penn State, Northwestern was the team with the early advantage: Catie Ingrilli scored the game's first goal less than a minute into the game, and the Wildcats took a 3-1 lead early on.
"You look at your season, and you come in, and there's so many unknowns coming into this year ... this group went through 17 games, and they did what they needed to do to come out and be 17-0", Maryland Coach Cathy Reese said after Sunday's win over Northwestern. Assists: NW-Esposito 2, Fredericks; MD-Giles 3, Wannen 3, Whittle 2, Hartshorn, Stukenberg. She gained control of the ball near midfield and ran straight through the heart of Northwestern's defense to score her 60th goal of the season.
"Sometimes our offense can just get a little ahead of itself". Ironically, I think the win that gets Elon in to the tournament is the game I have always wanted to replay.
"For us being out here in Denver, you don't have to worry about the cross-country travel which is a big plus for us", Ready says about being awarded a home game.
