It wasn't the result I'd hoped for, but it was a great game.  Final score: 11-9, but it really wasn't that close for much of the second half.  Gettysburg's defense stymied the Panther offense throughout game and there was no stopping Liza Barr who owned five of the eleven Bullet tallies.  There should be a rule against the Bullets' GK Bailey Pilder.  Are we absolutely certain she's not a senior?

Barr had a career high five goals ... in the championship game ... as a senior ... her final game. Talk about a hell of a way to go out (didn't have the career note in front of me, sadly).

Sorry, Pilder is around for another year. Rules are rules and none have come out to limit her. LOL

I believe today's win pushes winning HC Carol Cantele past Missy Foote on the wlax career victories list.  Second place in DIII and third place overall?  Regardless, congratulations to the longtime Bullet mentor who obviously has a few more winning seasons in mind.

It does push her to third all-time behind Pfulger (514), who Midd beat to get to the title game, and Navy's Cindy Timchal (509). 423 win's ain't bad.. but nearly 100 behind the two leaders is insane.

Winning their second consecutive championship the Bullets become the fourth team in the history of DIII wlax to have done so.  The others?  The rest of this season's final four.

The fire power and history at the final four this weekend was insane. Didn't feel we had time to get into it all, though we could have if we were on air for the entirety of the delays on Sunday. ROFL)

Thanks to Dave McHugh and Monika Moore for their excellent commentary.  Their knowledge of the game and a sense of when to explain as well as simply report the action on the field makes it so much easier to appreciate and understand.  And thanks for sticking around an extra day. ;)

Kind words to be sure. Thank you. Monika knows her stuff and I love leaving aspects of the coverage in her hands. We have worked together for a number of years, though certainly less frequently in the last five years, and she always has done her homework and is prepared for nearly anything. Glad our balance worked. You never know sometimes. I think I have a better sense than Monika that people are still learning the game or tuning in with no knowledge (not a knock on Monika, it is always on my mind), so I try and find the right time to get things in. That said, the games were so well played that it also allowed us to focus on the games than the nuisances most of the time.

Glad you enjoyed. And while it wasn't ideal, we were both happy to stick around another day - just wish the traffic on I-81 heading north could have been more cooperative. (It was brutal to say the least.) I didn't really want to handoff that final game with those two teams (no matter who was in the game it was going to be epic). I am just glad I could make arrangements that allowed me to stay easily (and those who hire us being so accommodating and helpful to make it work out).

Pictures and film of Ellicott City, MD are heartrending.

It is horrible. Twice in two years ... and this time even worse. There is a lot going on in that location that has caused this flooding (some of it natural, most of it now human error)... but this area has also gotten a lot of bad flooding in the last two weeks in general. Frederick experienced 6+ inches of rain in two hours last week ... did unreal damage.

My two cents worth. I really enjoyed watching AND listening. Although I have been following Mount Union for 5 years, I'm still learning many of the facets of this great sport. Your broadcast was certainly helpful to me in better understanding some of the nuances of the game. Listening to you could probably bring more fans to lacrosse. Between you and my NCAA rule book, I'll be able to understand more of what's happening.
Keep up the good work. Maybe some day, you'll get to do a Purple Raider game. Thanks!

I appreciate it. May I use this in my efforts to find more work? Those looking to hire (or me convince) could use reading this. LOL

And my twitter haters... oh never mind, they couldn't stand my kind responses to them. LOL

You deserve all the accolades you get. Good stuff. Yes, please feel free to use my post any way you wish. Do I then get 10 % of your salary? Or at least a finders fee? Not too worry, we'll work it out!
And since we haven't chatted before, I must alert you to something the OAC board, and others, already know - I'm old. I get mixed up and I forget things!
Good luck in the future. ☠🍻

Thanks again. If you really want 10% of basically nothing, we can figure it out. LOL

And I think we have chatted before. I know the username. :)

I am getting old to be sure. LOL

So we have chatted before. I told you, I forget things. You're old? This is my 61st anniversary of graduating from dear old MUC. Now that's old. But I've got my health (at least most of it).
Later and may all your microphones be static free. (I couldn't think of anything clever to say).

I am not old, per se, I've just been feeling pretty old for more than a year (or more) now. :) Need to get back in shape... badly.

And I love that thought... may your microphones be static free. Good one. May steal that.
