Northwestern Downs Louisville 12-8

Northwestern returned to home play today from a two game road trip. They hosted the Lousiville Cardinals in a fog shrouded and wet Martin Stadium. Louisville is a scrappy team that keeps coming back at you, and they had some success against the ‘Cats today but Northwestern`s offense shifted into four gear with a 5 goal run to best the Cardinals 12-8.

Lincolnway Wins Opener 11-1 Over Marist.

Lincolnway`s new coaching staff impressed Thursday night as they started off their 2017 season with a convincing win over the Marist Redhawks. Notwithstanding its record of 1-19 over the last two years, Lincolnway was on the cusp of turning the corner as four of its 10 losses in 2106 were by one goal and two of those games went into overtime. The new sideline staff includes IHSWLA alumni Claire Bennett, who played the Robert Morris NWLL National Championship team, and Shelby Cosman and Kaylee Nolan, who graduated in May from Augustana. The Augie team on which Cosman and Nolan (one of its captains) played, amassed a four year record of 73-10 and moved to the round of 16 in the NCAA Division III championship, so they know how to win.

York Holds Off Montini 11-10.

In a battle of two evenly matched, western suburban teams, York withstood a late charge from Montini and prevailed 11-10 as part of the 2017 Loyola Invitational Tournament. Both teams used patient offenses, working the ball around, starting from behind and either waiting for a cutter coming off a wheel route, or curling around into a 1v1 opening created by the offense sweeping to the other side. York`s Zoe Lawless was deadly tonight connecting with 4 assists and 3 goals for 7 points. Montini`s Johanna Knightsfield had 4 goals and an assist for 5 points, while the Clynch sisters teamed up for 5 goals.

Robert Morris Chicago Cancels its 2017 Womens Lacrosse Season.

Robert Morris University (Chicago) has cancelled its 2017 womens lacrosse season. RMU recently won the National Womens Lacrosse League (NWLL) National Championship in 2014 under IHSWLA alumni Alison Brady. The cancellation occurred shortly before the beginning of the season in February. RMU indicated that it plans to resume competition in womens lacrosse for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Points of Emphasis for the 2017 Season - Rules 10 (1.(e)) and 10 (1.(f)) - Dangerous Propelling and Dangerous Follow Through.

Every season the Rules Committee decides on implementing rule changes and also decides in any particular aspects of officiating need to be emphasized. For 2017, the dangerous propelling (10 1.f ) and dangerous follow through (10 1.e) rules are to be emphasized. The basis for any annual points of emphasis, and the rules in general, is the safety of all the players. The officials are charged with maintaining a safe game, not to "let them play." Fans should understand this.
