Best part IMO: we won't have to watch Old Sourpuss stalking the sidelines in Foxboro ...

:lol: :lol: Spot on!!!!

My, my, my, what a game, loved every minute of this one, CONGRATS DANES!!!!!!!
The Irelan-Baptise battle absolutely lived up to the billing and was not what I thought it would be. Have no reason why, but I thought Baptise would dominate....not!!!! Man, what a battle!! Super good game and I'm happy with the outcome.

Denver getting "jobbed" is a joke. Hard fought game and the danes answered the bell. All there is to it... players from both sides going hard. Denver's D laid the wood and Albany answered the task. Pushing on every faceoff is a grotesquely false claim. Bottom line the Dane Train rolls to Massachusetts

Great game. The refs really let them play. I thought Albany played a little sloppy in the 4th but expected with the loose way they play. Again great exciting game to watch. :clap: Hats off to Albany for finally making the it to the semis.

That was a highly entertaining game that lived up to the advance hype.

Seconded. That man is obnoxious and a terrible ambassador/representative for the sport.

Otherwise, my hat is off to both teams for a well-played game.

One of the best games I've ever watched even though my Pios lost. I'm glad so many loved the game. Big win for college lacrosse.

Totally agree.

And I think many would say that it was fitting that the final tally at the faceoff X from Ierlan and Baptiste was a perfect 50/50.

Instant classic, and one for the books. Treat to watch lacrosse like that.

Love Nanticoke's physical game. But his youth showed in some of the bad decisions he made. The punch and the excessive jawing anmd extracurriculars could have swung the game. He's fortunate it didnt get called.

The faceoff battle was a treat to watch. Loved that TD changed his usual approach to give himself a better shot against Trevor.
