    The Buffs lacrosse team (4-2) will face their toughest test of the season when they travel to Amherst, MA to take on #9 UMASS (6-0) at 2pm. Here is a preview of each team:
    There are live stats and video for the match. The stats are free, but the video is available for a fee from the Atlantic 10 website.

    You know, I should be looking at this game and just hoping the Buffs don't lose by 20.

    But with how well our team has played, there's actually a little hope creeping in that CU has a puncher's chance at an upset.

    Amazing.

    I kind of felt that every match I was hoping that we wouldn't lose by 20, but they've done great and now I don't know what to expect. I think that they could lose the rest of their games and the season would still be considered a success.

    I'm a little late for the beginning, but it's not looking great for the Buffs. 21 minutes left in the first half and the Buffs are down 6-1. The Buffs lone goal was scored by Sarah Lautman, assisted by Katie Macleay.

    It's hard to tell from the live stats, but it looks like the Buffs have settled down a bit

    We knew this was a possibility playing an elite team. In context we are a team of mostly freshmen in our inaugeral season. These things will happen...

    Cali Castagnola gets her first of the game to make it 15-3, but UMASS answers 16-3.

    Absolutely. I'm surprised that it didn't happen sooner.

    UMASS wins it 17-4. Buffs actually outshot UMASS 9-8 in the 2nd half after getting outshot 23-4 in the first. Not a bad result considering how young and new our team is and how good they are.

    There was a running clock in the 2nd half (not sure if that's standard for WLAX or something that the coaches agreed on at halftime since it was already a blowout at that point), and UMass definitely let off the gas and let a lot of their bench play as well in the 2nd...that being said, I do see some potential here for the team...when they were able to get the ball into the UMass zone, they moved it around nicely and were able to get great looks at shots - the main problem was on the breakout, where UMass completely swarmed the ball carrier and we were often times not able to get the ball past midfield without being forced into a turnover...that inability to get the ball into the zone to begin with made it problematic for us to get scoring chances...

    I figured that they probably let off the gas, but without video it's hard to tell. Either way, it's not a bad result considering that we're a brand new program.
