Week in review (4/24): Going back to 1989

wesSyracuse’s biggest game of the regular season is coming up against No. 1 Notre Dame this week. On Saturday, the Fighting Irish will come to the Carrier Dome for a 7 p.m. game televised by ESPNU.

If you can’t wait until this weekend to see some great lacrosse being played, check out the 1989 title game between Syracuse and Johns Hopkins that was recently released in eight different parts by iLacrosse on Youtube. It’s one of the most exciting games in college lacrosse history. If you don’t have two hours to spare to watch the game, here’s a quick blurb of the game from the New York Times:

“The final score in the contest -which matched the sport’s two best teams and was seen by 23,893 spectators, a record for intercollegiate lacrosse – was 13-12. And the crowd in the University of Maryland’s Byrd Stadium saw a tense game: The score was tied seven times and Johns Hopkins was ahead more often than Syracuse, by an 8-6 score after two quarters and by 11-9 after three.”

If you do have two hours to spare, I highly recommend using it to watch the game. Here’s part 1:

That’s all for this week, folks. See you at the same time, same place next week.
