    They held on for a 16-15 win. Desperately needed, their next 4 are against ranked teams including Syracuse and UNC.

    seems to me that lacrosse is a sport that schools that are not that big in other sports do very well, looking at the womens top 25 teams like Denver, stoneybrook, navy, etc. for those more knowledgable than me in the sport, is it that easy to compete with bigger schools?

    got there after SB last night saw the rally, they looked great but I think they just ran out of gas after the run to tie the match
