SU-UConn, 6 OTs.
11th lax championship.
It’s been a solid six months for Orange Nation.
You have to feel for Cornell just a tad. Sitting on a three-goal lead with just minutes to play, thirty-two years since its last title, up by a goal with :04 left.
That’ll leave a mark.
The Orange does what it always does; closes on Memorial Day.
In 2000,¬†The Fizz called SU’s 7th national championship at College Park, Maryland.
At the time it seemed preposterous: seven titles in 17 years?
Yet, here is John Desko adding plaques like¬†Slumdog Millionaire, FOUR more championships later.
Sure, we’d all trade one or two of these lax titles for a Meineke Car Care Bowl, but it still feels good to dogpile on Memorial Day.
As for Cornell, at least the Big Red has its bumper stickers, “Ithaca is Gorges.”
