insidelacrosse.com:

Colonial Athletic Association
Site: Garber Field, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass.
No. 4 Drexel (6-7, 2-3) at No. 1 UMass (10-4, 4-1), Thursday at 5 p.m.
First Time Around: 3/30; UMass pulled out a 10-9 comeback win
Tidbit: This is the second year in a row UMass has hosted the CAA tourney
Players to Watch: G Sean Sconone (UMass), A Matt Varian (Drexel)
For a Different Outcome: In the regular season game Drexel led 7-6 heading into the fourth quarter, but UMass came back to take the game. The Minutemen won 10-of-13 face-offs in the second half. The Dragons committed eight penalties (three were at the end of the game). Better work at the dot and less time in the penalty box could take Drexel into the CAA finals.

Hope they aren't looking ahead-trap game. UMASS needs a strong performance today. GO Gorillas!

Hard to play a worse quarter. 5-1 after one even after dominating on faceoffs.

UMass totally outplayed and outhustled in 1st qtr. And our one goal was a ref. mistake. About as bad a start as one could ever imagine, Drexel has forced many turnovers. Too many easy dunks on Sconone, with D lapses.

How many times do you get a guy in alone on the keeper? We don't score. 12-8 after three.

So many errors- sloppy. Will require an amazing comeback to win. 15-11 bad guys.

Well, that was highly disappointing. That’s what happens when you are unprepared in the first half and fall behind by 7 goals.

Well, that's it for the season. Too bad. Dug too deep a hole and some over-aggressive UM play led to multiple EMO's for Drexel.

CAA is likely a one bid league, 2 IFF Towson loses in finals. 1 IFF Towson loses in semis, IMO. :shock:
