The Commonwealth Coast Conference, 2017

New postby BostonSouthLax on Sun Sep 11, 2016 10:00 am

Well, someone needs to get this year going w Fall Ball starting.
Will 2017 be more of the same w WNE and Endicott going for the title, or can RWU make a jump up to challenge.

How do the freshmen look?

From the Boston South area RWU has added 4-5 good players.
WNE will be bringing in a dynamic LSM from the South Shore as well

Thoughts, feelings, reactions?

WNE brought in a truckload this year, O stays together minus Bota, possible return of some injured players could help. Options are there and plentiful at attack . Defense is solid and goalie looks strong. Face off is the big loss and they are short on quality mids. Could be interesting I would expect Endi to be strong again. I am not expecting anything but what we have seen for the last bunch of years , no big shake up Gulls vs Bears again in final.

Don't sleep on the gulls this year. First freshmen class not recruited by Quirk. Gulls are always strong, they don't rebuild they reload. Really hope the rest of the CCC improves to make it a more competitive conference. Heard Bard is done playing lacrosse at WNEC.

Remember, Gulls did not have a fall ball last year, proved to hurt them in the early Spring. This year they are looking to play Keene St. and Saint Anselm in mid October. Defense will be young this year, with only one returning starter coming back. Goalie situation should be interesting to watch too, Sturges has seen some serious playing time his past 3 years even though he was backing up Bell. Has shown he is more than capable of saving the ball. F/O should not be a problem for the Gulls, Hughes should maintain his dominance. All starting attack is back for the Gulls, lets just see if Jennings and Bannon can get some help from their midfield units. Hagarty and the rest of his staff need to prove themselves this year.

Seems to be the same as always... Gulls and Bears in the top two position in the CCC. Championship or bust for both teams.

I don't know about the freshman class, but the Gulls have a defenseman transfer from BU and a lefty attack from Marymount.

Well gentlemen, looks like we have another competitive year ahead of us in the Grand Ol' CCC!

Between a repowering/recharging WNEC squad and a hungry Gulls team looking for scraps (pun intended) I find it hard to believe anyone will have the gumption to stick around BUT that's where the pride and spirit of the Scots flourishes in.

To me, Scots Dad of '09, I see the boys creating serious leverage when they get "the school down the street" AT HOME! With the grace of the big man upstairs and a secret weapon in a strong freshman class we should see a glory hole chance of getting the upset W!

But let's make it through the Fall first and then put our big boy cup in when the season rolls around!!
How do you guys feel about the remaining CCC teams? Will it be a harsh spring filled with Nor'Easters??

Still no score on the UNE scrimmages? Wondering how they are looking this year, they were a strong program last year and are looking to make a jump in the CCC. Any word on any other teams from across the CCC?

Hey Q any word on scrimmages?

WNE and RWU both played Liberty League competition last weekend.
Unofficial of course but RWU lost 10-7 to Vassar. Lots of freshmen for the Hawks.
Also, RWU beat AIC pretty easily.

WNE beating Union w starters while losing to Skidmore w primarily younger players.

Anyone else? Wentworth, Salve ETC?

Endicott lost both of its games. Everybody got to play, so it may not be indicative, but too many turnovers and not enough sharing of the ball on offense. Goal tending and faceoffs were the only highlights,imo.

Wentworth goes north to New England College on Sunday to battle the Pilgrims and the Huskies of Southern Maine. Another rebuilding year for the Leopards, we'll see how this weekend plays out. A lot of talent arriving on Huntington Ave from this year's freshman class. Excited for the 2017 lacrosse season to start.

Sadly for Wentworth is not a rebuilding year if year after year they aren't very good. It sounds like it is simply just more or the same for WIT. UNE sounds like they are starting to get into the mix of the 3 spot of the CCC. Remember they upset Salve last spring and and hung with WNEU in the semis. They should be good this spring.

As for Endicott's scrimmages a few weekends ago, it was exactly what you expect for them. D looked very young but high potential. F/O looked very good and scored many goals off transition that started at the X. And offensively the Gulls look to have a few younger guys stepping up to help Jennings and Bannon.

Although the Gulls did lose both the games, they did get most of their players into both their games. When their starters were in, they were extremely competitive with St. A's and looked to be a few paces ahead of Keene St. Exciting stuff coming out of Beverly this fall and heading into the spring season.

A big shout out to former RWU Head Coach Dennis Dobbyn who was inducted into the inaugural class of the Rhode Island Lacrosse Hall of Fame. The class included Dom Starsia, Chris Rotelli amongst others.

Dennis was the first varsity coach at RW and really got their program off the ground in the late 1980's. Way to go Denny, RWU lax is proud of you :clap: :clap: :clap:

Endicott, WNEU, and UNE return most of their scoring if I'm not mistaken.

Endicott is for sure returning their two leading point producers in Bannon and Jennings. Unsure if Bard for WNEU is going to finish his last year of eligibility or if he got his degree and left WNEU. They have a few returners that can produce for WNEU and a very solid team all together. Also unsure about UNE as a whole

The gulls and UNE appear to return most of their points, WNEU is losing a lot offensively but expect them to reload, RWU loses their top 2 but seems to return the rest. Even Salve seems to return most of their goals. Could be a tough year for defenses across the CCC.
