We are getting near the end of the season and with about 2 weeks left in the regular season, every game has added significance. Lafayette’s game last week with Lehigh was a set back, but not fatal to their chances for a slot in the playoffs and a chance for a championship. Happily it is in their hands with 3 patriot league games left. The rest of the season looks like this.
Team Record Oct 13 Oct 14 Oct 21 OCT 28
BOSTON (3-0) HC LH BUCK
AMER (3-1) COL LAF
BUCK (2-1) LAF HC BU
HC (2-1) BU BUCK LAF
LAF (1-2) BUCK AM HC
LH (1-3) BU COL
COL (0-4) AM LEH
I”ll leave to other people to insert the likely outcomes. However I will say those with 3 and 4 losses at the moment face virtual elimination from post season play. The Leopards have their fate in their own hands. Two wins would give Lafayette a 3 win season with wins over one of the three remaining teams….. in that case the tie breaker would eliminate one of the tied teams.
The Friday games between Boston and Holy Cross, while Lafayette hosts Bucknell has interesting consequences, with the possibility of establishing a three way tie at 2-2. Bucknell faces HC next week and Lafayette faces Holy Cross on the 28th. Bucknell meets BU on the 28th.
Could be an interesting finale to the season!! A win tomorrow for the Leopards would be step in the right direction. Go PARDS
