« on: April 13, 2015, 06:16:06 am » is it that your Cardinals get good lacrosse players?  Aware that it is a Native American game...any Native American players?...being serious here....Amherst is always looking out for such students with that background...truly.  On that subject, many years ago I was informed that Maine has a large Native American presence....even reservations.  Discussed it recently with a friend who has several pieces of property in Maine, including a family farm...and goes up each summer to keep them in shape.  Where am I going?...who really knows, but I'm thinking if the tribes in Maine play the sport, or are only the tribes of the NY region the originators.  I know, I should look it up online!


Most of the Cardinal lax players come from Long Island, the Capital Distict of NY (Albany area) or Central New York. There are several Native American communities close by (3 within a 60 mile radius) but I don't recall any of those players attending Plattsburgh. Do recall several of them attending DI schools but couldn't tell you where or when. Just remember reading about a few students that went on to play at some of the bigger schools over the years.

The Cortland men's team popped Plattsburgh's State bubble once again as they defeated the host Cardinals on Saturday afternoon by a 15-9 score. The Red Dragons left no doubt as to who the better team was that day as they jumped out to a 6-0 lead after the 1st period and increased it to 12-3 at the half. Cortland would lead by 10 goals at 15-5 in the 4th quarter before the Cardinals scored 4 time in the final 4 minutes to close the gap but never really threaten. Once again it looks like the SUNYAC championship will be decided on Cortland's home field. Cortland ranked #13 improved to 8-4 and 3-0 in the SUNYAC. Plattsburgh is now 9-5 overall and 2-2 in the YAC.

The 5th ranked Cortland women defeated #10 Tufts by a 14-8 score on Sunday afternoon. The Red Dragons built leads of 5-1 and 8-2 but 2 late first half goals by the Jumbos made it 8-4 at the half. Cortland led 9-6 and 10-7 with 8 minutes left to play, but scored 3 unanswered goals over the next several minutes to take a commanding 13-7 advantage. Both teams added 1 more goal  ti make the 14-8 final. 

Cortland improves to 12-1 on the season while the Jumbos fall to 9-4.

More winter weather in Plattsburgh as 2 inches of heavy wet snow fell overnight. Good thing that the baseball team and softball team are both on the road this weekend or those games would probably have been cancelled. Cortland Men's Lacrosse team is invading the Burgh on Saturday and that game should be ok as they will play on the turf at the field house complex.

Rumors of baseball weather in Northern New York is strictly that....a rumor. Snowed on Saturday...snowed on Sunday...snowed again most of Monday night.

Plattsburgh State had to postpone another game and has yet to play a home game this season. The game against Skidmore that was scheduled for today was postponed as jdex mentioned in his post. There is no make-up date announced at this time.

The Cardinals will play at Brockport this weekend but the single Friday nine inning game has been moved to Sunday at noon. The doubleheader will start on noon on Saturday.

The 2 home games that the Cardinals were forced to play against Oneonta down in Wappingers Fall and then had to be postponed from that location last weekend have been rescheduled to take place in Plattsburgh on Tuesday April 14th and will be the Cardinals home openers. (I'll believe it when I see it actually in Plattsburgh  ???)

The rescheduling of the 2 games with Oneonta occurs on a day that the Cardinals were supposed to host Middlebury College for a single 9 inning game. That game has now been cancelled and will not be made up.

If the Cardinals, do in fact, play the remainder of the games listed on their schedule, then they will have played a total of 8 games out of 35 in Plattsburgh. :P

Plattsburgh State Men defeated Geneseo State 16-6 on Saturday to improve to 9-3 overall and 2-0 in the SUNYAC. They get a double dose of Red Dragons back to back as they travel to Oneonta State on Wednesday and then host Cortland State on Saturday. Hopefully they won't be looking past the Oneonta Red Dragons in anticipation of the Saturday matchup against the perennial conference champion Cortland Red Dragons.

15th ranked Cortland defeated 10th ranked Ithaca College 11-10 in double overtime on Wednesday April 1st. It was the 3rd straight year that Cortland has defeated Ithaca in overtime. This Saturday's game against Plattsburgh could determine the #1 seed for the SUNYAC playoffs.

Also on Saturday afternoon the Cortland Women ranked #5, defeated 17th ranked Geneseo State 17-7. It was the first loss of the season for the Knights who are now 6-1. The Red Dragons upped their record to 9-1. Three games in the next 7 days for Cortland, all at home, with the biggest game coming next Sunday as they host the 11th ranked Tufts Jumbos. Cortland plays Oneonta on Tuesday and Oswego on Saturday prior to the Tufts matchup. They finish the regular season with 3 conference games, all on the road.

 Just thought you might want to know for future reference...the pitcher for Plattsburgh State that won Saturday night's game against Oneonta is named Orr not Ott. Scott Orr is the ace of the Cardinal's staff so far this season with a 3-1 record, 2.65 era, and 29 K's in 37.1 innings. After his 132 pitch, 10 strikeout  shutout last night they are calling him "Iron" Orr. ;D

Also hails from near your neck of the woods...Baldwinsville.

Appreciate all the updates. plus K.


The state of Wisconsin trying hard to get another National Championship in basketball as Wisconsin defeats Kentucky 71-64. That made my day. 8-)

Plattsburgh State men defeated St Lawrence by an 11-7 final score yesterday. The Cardinals had never beaten the Saints until last season and now have done so for the 2nd straight year.

That's why I visit this get history lessons from Vandy. 8-) I'll try to keep this board updated from time to time on the SUNYAC races for men and women. Just so Vandy gets a little more chatter here. :D

Nice wins for Middlebury today. Hope that Coach Foote can go out in a blaze of glory. Good luck to her and the Middlebury women.

Magicman........good to hear from you and thanks.  A little arm weather for a "Spring" sport would help but so far it's just the fans who seem to be bothered by it. :P  An overdue congrats to the Cardinal women's hockey team on their 2nd consecutive DIII national championship.  Your men's LAX are having a pretty decent season themselves I see. 8-)  Is Cortland still the team to beat in the SUNYAC this year?

Cortland is almost always the team to beat in Men's LAX, Women's LAX and Baseball. They usually win the conference crown in softball as well (but came in 2nd last year to Oneonta)  I don't think this year will be any different. Both the Lacrosse teams are nationally ranked (men 16th, women 6th), baseball team is ranked #2 in the D3 poll. Only the softball team is unranked with a 6-6 record, but they will probably win the SUNYAC conference, having done so in 5 of the last 8 years.

Our Men's Lacrosse team is having a decent season...beat Brockport down there over the weekend, but Cortland will probably prove to be a huge obstacle once again. We came close last year losing to them twice by identical 11-10 scores at their place. We get them at home this year...maybe we can get lucky.

See the CAC won the National Championship in Men's Hockey with Trinity preventing Stevens Point from winning national titles on back to back weekends with a 5-2 win. I watched that game online and it was much closer than the final score indicates. Really a 3-2 game plus the 2 empty net goals in the last minute by the Bantams. Glad a team from the East won it. Trinity eliminated my Cards. It didn't help when the game, which was supposed to be in Plattsburgh got switched to Trinity's rink when the Cardinal women were declared the host of their Final Four. I knew we were doomed when that happened. Still, I think the Bantams would probably have won even if the game was played in Plattsburgh. They were the better team. 

Spring just can't be found here in the North Country. Plattsburgh's baseball team had to travel down to Poughkeepsie to play their 3 "home" games against Oswego State. Played one on Sunday night (we lost 5-2) and tomorrow we play them in a double header at the home field of Bard College. I know the scientists are correct when they speak of global warming and the fact is that this has been one of the warmest years on record...but you'll be hard pressed to find many in the North Country that believe that after the past two winters we've had. :P

Just read your PM. Will try and respond in the next day or so. Weather creating havoc with spring sports in the North Country as usual. More snow least it wasn't much, but white stuff this time of year is still depressing. :P

You need to send us some of that Florida weather. Snowing again today here in Plattsburgh. No green grass to be found. The 5 day forecast doesn't offer much in the way of spring either. 29 degrees tomorrow and still only 38 next Tuesday and Wednesday. No global warming in the North Country this year.

jdex, I asked earlier but didn't get a reply. Did you get a chance to see any of the SUNYAC teams play when they were in Florida?

Any word if CBS Sports will be replaying the Championship game or if the NCAA website will be posting the full replay? I know they have the all-star game up and I remember last year watching Whitewater's win online on the NCAA website. To my dismay, my dvr didn't record the game.  :'(

I didn't have CBS Sports as one of my channels on the day of the game but on Thursday afternoon I upgraded my cable package because they moved the MLB Network into the next tier and by purchasing that tier to get MLB I also got CBS Sports. I went to the program guide to see if they would be showing the DIII Championship game anytime soon.

I was able to advance the programming for that channel all the way through next Thursday April 2nd. They will be showing in the next week, the championship game of the women's Division II NCAA tournament, 2 or 3 games from the CBI Division I tournament (that tournament is a best of 3 finals for schools that didn't get an NIT invite) and will have Louisiana (Monroe) and Loyola (Chicago) playing for the tournament title, several games from a tournament called The College Basketball Championship and a host of NCAA Division I replays. There was no mention however of a Division III game. :P  Maybe they already replayed it the one time they were going to. ???

I'm hoping Pat or Dave can come on and give us a link that will allow us to watch a replay of the title game. I thought that Pat said earlier there would be a time shortly after the game that we would be able to see a replay, but I may be wrong about that.
