It looks as though there will be upsets in the 7-8 matchups in the first round. Otherwise, I don't see many favorites falling. Fairfield Prep vs. Brother Rice and Boys Latin vs. Arapahoe would be two great games to watch...........

It is a lacrosse website, and there is no lacrosse going on except summer ball. What else do you expect them to do.

I think the "one team from every state (that has a team)" rule is a little bit silly, when some of those teams will just be cannon fodder, but it's not exactly important.

How many first round games do you figure will start the 3rd with running time?

However, how many second round games will even see a 10 point end-of-game differential?

National Online Lacrosse Tournament: Round 1 Results

Results for the opening round of the National Online Lacrosse Tournament can be found below. In this first-ever virtual championship, 64 teams qualified, with the following schools receiving berths:

  • The top-ranked team in each state* and the top team in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council, according to LaxPower's final Power Rankings (PR) for the 2009 season.


  • The 24 highest-rated teams remaining in the country based on their final Power Rankings for the 2009 season, with any ties broken based on strength of schedule.

Teams were seeded by Power Rating on an S-curve to create tournament brackets.


Determining the Winners

Winners are determined based on votes from LaxPower's panel and by using the LaxPower computer Power Ratings (PR) as the fifth vote. The computer ratings were employed in creating a probability function such that the larger Team A's PR differential vs. Team B, the greater the odds that they would win when a small group of random numbers was generated. This means that upsets are possible.


Tournament Schedule

Results of the NOLT will be posted according to the following schedule:

Round 1: Tuesday, July 14
Round 2: Thursday, July 16
Round 3: Monday, July 20
Round 4: Wednesday, July 22

This will be interesting.

Darien gets another chance to beat Yorktown. Ithaca gets a virtual shot against the team they expected to be playing in the NY A final after beating West Genny until they got beat 8-7 by Orchard Park in the semis...West Islip.

Boys Latin and Webster Thomas were the sacrificial lambs for Maryland and New York, respectively - we simply couldn't have the two hottest of the hotbeds going undefeated, could we? How did Webster Thomas get in? Orchard park beat them 22-10 in the NY A semi.....

Webster Thomas lost to OP in the NYS A Quarterfinals.

Thomas made the tournament based on their PR rating I believe. I think "the powers that be" wanted to see Thomas vs. Canandaigua. Webster Thomas has played CA tough the past few years and maybe they felt that the Titans could pull off the upset. I think Thomas was looking ahead to a possible matchup against CA and that may have led to them getting upset in the first round.

The computer made a bold prediction but there are upsets in every tournament look at the NCAA for example. Eventhough the computer picked those upsets, Corning East and GTown Prep advanced. I think the sweet 16 is where we start to see some really interesting matchups.
