Herbert on Sports update

LACROSSE (6-4): Army-Bucknell is always exciting. Six of the last 7 games have been decided by one goal, and this was no exception. Playing at Bucknell, yearling Matt Scheel scored twice in the 4th quarter, including the game-winner with less than 3 minutes to play as Army won 8-7. Army's yearling goalie, Adam Fullerton, registered 17 saves.

Navy here Saturday at 1:00 pm. The game will be on ESPNU.

BASEBALL (15-16-1): Playing at home didn't help, as Army was swept by Bucknell in both doubleheaders. We lost 4-0 and 9-2; then lost two more 1-0 and 6-1. In mid-week games, we defeated Marist 10-3, beat Iona 9-1, and stopped Manhattan 7-1. Yearling Drew Clothier got his first career win against Manhattan. Four league games at Holy Cross this weekend. Navy currently leads the Patriot League.

SOFTBALL (11-24): Split a non-league doubleheader at Rutgers. We won 10-6, but lost 8-7. At Colgate, we lost 3 of the 4 league games. Won 6-4, but lost 5-4, 4-1, and 6-5. This Army team is a very good hitting team, but pitching is the problem.

MEN'S TENNIS (8-14): Defeated Bucknell 5-2 and Hofstra 5-2.

WOMEN'S TENNIS (13-11): Clinched the No. 1 seed and will host the Patriot League tournament by winning at Lehigh 6-1. It was Army's 8th straight win. At Lafayette today.

HOCKEY: Chris Lawlor '72 went to the NCAA Hockey Skills Challenge in Milwaukee (during the Frozen Four finals). He reported that Army's senior goalie, Brad Roberts (one of two goalies selected) played well against some of the Nation's best college players.

WOMEN'S LACROSSE CLUB (8-0): This is a (relatively) new Army team. Playing at Syracuse, Army defeated a very strong Delaware team 13-12. Last year, they beat us 20-3, and they jumped out to a 3-0 lead in this game. Army led at one point 13-8, and managed to hold on for the win. We then beat Syracuse 15-7 and New York U. 13-11.

WOMEN'S RUGBY CLUB: Army, ranked #5, played at #6 Ohio State and lost 7-5. We'd have beaten them at home.
