2015 NCAA Player Tracker: Week4/5
(Pictured: Joe Lang)
March 17th, 2015
Week 4 and 5 saw some tremendous lacrosse games as teams begin conference play and the temperature began to creep back into playable conditions. The trend of parity continued and once again many of our Adrenaline family members were making waves across the country and across divisions.
Players of the Week:
Mike Schlosser (Tropics, All American, ADVNC)- Schlosser had 4 huge goals and none bigger than his overtime game winner as Michigan edged St. Josephs http://www.lax.com/stories/Michigan-vs-Saint-Joseph’s-sid-4465.html
Joe Lang (Tropics, All American, ADVNC)- Last week’s Ivy League Rookie of the Week, Lang continued his monster rookie campaign with a 5-point performance in a loss to Brown. http://www.gocrimson.com/sports/mlax/2014-15/releases/20150310erx1cj
Brown University: With the addition of WCS coach Sean Kirwan as the offensive coordiantor, Brown is leading the country in scoring with 18 goals per game and is currently 5-0 and ranked #12 in the country. They are lead by another WCS coach Dylan Molloy who is leading goal scorer in the country currently with 29 goals in 5 games. http://www.brownbears.com/sports/m-lacros/2014-15/videos/2_4358_mlc-harv_mlc-brow_2015_31700_pack1_1_3000
Cole Johnson (WCS, All American, Seattle Starz)- Johnson haas been arguably the most steady WCS alum this season. Helping Army keep pace in the ever competitve Patriot League, Johnson scored 4 goals this weekend in a loss to Loyola. He currently sits at 22 goals on the year.
Jesse King (Adrln)- King helped propel Ohio State to by far the biggest upset win of the weekend, beating Denver. King was unstoppable and finished the game with 2 goals and 2 assists.
Eric Adamson & Wes Berg (WCS, All American)- one of the best 1-2 combinations in all of college lacrosse, despite being on the losing end this weekend, the duo combines for 6 goals and 2 assists in a loss to Ohio State.
Eddy Glazener (WCS, All American, Tropics, RC Starz)- The Junior was part of a Notre Dame defense that stymied Virginia all afternoon. Glazener’s on-ball defense was only outdone by his smart play and effective rotations, approaches and team defense as ND held off UVA to get a huge ACC win on the road. Glazener also plays the bagpipes for the Irish.
Bass Barfield (WCS, All American, Tropics) Barfield has been a pleasant surprise for the Dolphins this season in goal and has lead them to a 4-2 record with 70 saves.
Eric Sanschagrin (WCS, All American)- This Princeton goalie had 10 saves in a huge league win over Penn and pushed Princeton to a 4-1 record, their best start in years.
Fairfield v Colgate game: This game was fun to watch simply because of all of the WCS alums involved. For the Stags Jacob Knostman (Seattle Starz) lead the way with 2 goals, while David Flaming (Tropics) had a goal, Spencer Noonan (Seattle Starz) played great defense and Brad Nordstrom (RC Starz) continued his stellar goalie play with 11 saves in the win. For Colgate Anthony Abadessa ( AZ Force) was on point again with a 1 goal, 2 assists effort in the loss.
Tufts v Colby- This was a phenomenal and hard fought NESCAC league game, played in the snow between two Adrln sponsored teams. Colby looked great in their new Adrenaline Aerolyte uniforms while Tufts had some old school flare sporting the Brown Carlson socks from a few years back. Tufts won the game, thanks to the efforts of Tropics John Uppgren and his team leading 27 points and Connor Lansdale on defense.
We wish all of our Adrln family members the best of luck moving forward, as this weekend will play host to several huge games. We eagerly anticipate the Pacific Coast Shootout in Southern California this weekend, bringing NCAA Division I lacrosse to the west as Maryland and former WCS alum Lucas Gradinger battle University of North Carolina.
