Colgate tied Delaware in scrimmage, 8-8.  Pics below:

Bucknell beat Delaware in its season opener, 13-5.  Is that an ominous sign?  Michigan lost to UNC, 20-10; we will be in Ann Arbor this weekend...and play Bucknell at home on the 27th!

Here's hoping last year's success will lead us to another PL title and deep into the postseason again this year.

Michigan 9
Colgate 8

We were the favorite to win, and should have.  Like many games last year, we found ourselves in an early hole.  Very sour beginning to the season and another weak start after a strong finish last year.  Typical of so many Colgate teams.  Michigan has yet to have a winning season but this will give them confidence.

Every OOC game is crucial, even at this early stage, and this first loss could really hurt.  Just when you think you've turned the corner and can play with the big boys...close game, guess it's time to reboot.  Would have been a nice win for the Patriot League.  A lot to think about on the ride home.  Time to even the record next weekend!

vs. Binghamton 2/20

'Gate only 5-17 at faceoffs.  That statistic will never win a game.  Reminds me of our kicking woes in football; you'd think we'd recruit someone.  Colgate now the highest ranked team Michigan has ever defeated.  Their new program only needed a few years to stick it to the Raiders.  Even BU hammered us last year i8-11 at home in only their program's 2nd season.

Colgate did outshoot the Wolverines but had some woeful statistics.  Their goalie carried the day.  The last paragraph of this article says it all and there is reason to worry.  It's going to be a long season of playing defense and playing from behind.  Without Walsh and Clarkson, nice to see a more balanced attack.  ROTY Abbadessa with only 1 assist.  Holding a team to 9 goals is not bad, either...but even Lehigh put up 11 against Duke (the latter had an awful game IMO).

Barely survived Binghamton 10-9 last season.  Bucknell looms large and our season could be over before its barely begun with a loss to the Bison.

Colgate 11
Binghamton 4

A very necessary win to stop some early bleeding, but game stats (other than the score) are a concern; ground balls and faceoffs are critical.  This won't pass any test against teams like Syracuse or any Patriot League rival.  Allowing only 4 goals is impressive, but the competition wasn't so it's a bit misleading IMO.

Game Stats    BU     COLGATE
Shots            32     35
Turnovers            15     10
Caused Turnovers    4       3
Faceoffs Won    12       7
Extra-Man Opps      2       3
Ground Balls    22      15

Host #20 Bucknell (3-0) today at noon.  'Gate the underdog according to IL, even at home.  Not surprising when Bucknell's Witzal has a 70.69% faceoff rating.  The Bison have 37 goals in 3 games.  Road to the PL title begins today.

I am a-liking the result vs Bucknell. And I will leave it to you to look over the stats and other coverage: no problems with face-offs or shots on goal.

Looks to me like a smart and well-coached team, once again. Well done ro Coach Murphy, his assistants and the team!

Cleveland sure shoots a lot. F/O much improved. Very nice win!

Serious doubts when down 5-1 like we were at Michigan, but lacrosse is a game of huge momentum swings.  Bucknell's wins were not over the best teams and they were put to the test against Colgate.  Great watching them in person on a sunny, brisk day with some nice fans in the stands!

Closing out games and scoring EMOs would be good...we were up by 2 late in the game.  F/O wow...and SOGs...this has become our calling card.  The only stat I don't see posted are clear attempts.  This is a fantastic to start to league play.

BU upsetting Navy...you just knew their fledgling program would not take long to develop to become a PL power.

@ Lehigh Saturday.  Will never forget the sight of them waving their &%*# flag on our turf.  Hope we can return the favor.
