Women weren't supposed to be playing there. They were supposed to be down in North Carolina. They were pulled out of state because the 5 transgender people in the state still don't have designated bathrooms yet.

if you need to play solo play at Hofstra or Rutgers so you draw from tri state area and not at the east end of LI. the sport just doesn't want to expand the tent!

Stop being a bitter. KO and Kent are both great players. [lacrosse], Kent is even better than Apuzzo but you can't take 164 points away from anyone in D1, especially one on a ranked team. Now go crawl back in your.

No one is, it's just Kent is better. Plays long hard season of hockey and then goes and lights up lax season against real teams. She and Apuzzo also get draws,CTs and GBs, KO is one sided. Was KO MVP? No because Kent is amazing.

So the girls game had 29 goals. The boys had 15. Girls had 71 shots and the boys had 66. Ohio st goes over double digit minutes twice without a shot while Maryland gets called for 8 stall warnings and it's the girls game that is considered boring? Watched both games and the girls game was so much better. Shot clock was a huge plus this season

You're insane - girls game, as usual was hard to watch. Refs have way too much influence on the girls game, at times it seems like there's literally a whistle every 10-15 seconds. For the casual fan who thought they were in for a good women's lax game featuring the two best teams in the country they had to be very disappointed at what they saw.

Agree. All six divisions should be at the same location. LaValle too small for mens draw. Could use Gillette, Lincoln Field in Philly, M & T in Baltimore, Bank of America in Charlotte, etc for all lacrosse divisions. It would great for the sport.

agreed. a million stoppages and time consuming restarts. hardly ever see a good fast break that produces a goal. just hack someone in the midfield and stop the play. so cramped and ugly packed in that small offensive zone. yes the Men's final was nowhere near as exciting as last year, but at certainly a better product to watch..

Most knowledgeable lacrosse people will agree the men's game has gotten far too slow with basically one one one...next....one on one....next etc.

The speed of the game is gone. If you are new to the game or disagree then go on YouTube and watch past finals from 1984 or 1985. Those games were fast and exciting and drew record crowds.

With that said the women's games are more exciting these days than the men's game if you know the rules. I would guess that those commenting on their dislike of the women's game don't know the rules or are limited in the history and knowledge of the womens game. They also play with no pockets in their sticks making their play all the more impressive.

Either way it seems the 90 second possession shot clock that is new this year for the women is coming soon to the men. It is needed no doubt.

the rules and or interpretation of them and more importantly the exploitation of them are what ruins the womens game - SB 59 fouls in a 60 min game? that wasn't by accident, it was by design! Women should adopt mens rules - only middies involved in the initial draw, nobody else over the restraining line until after possession and let the refs call for 30 second shot clock when needed, the men at least have a chance of getting the ball back when on defense, for the womens it is almost impossible

One sided...Stop it
NCAA Points record
NCAA Assists record
2nd in the country in goals
340 points in 3 seasons

Nothing one sided about 80+ Assists and 70+ goals.

You obviously don;t know that there is a shot clock now in the women's game. It has been fantastic. Agree that holding at restraining line until possession would be a good change. High school and youth implemented it this year. It will come to college hopefully soon. The quick restarts are improving flow in the midfield. Need to change 3-second call back to an 8-meter so there is a real consequence to packing in the 8-meter. SB does exploit the rule and it is not a good style to watch. Didn't understand that change in the first place.

Starting a team. you get one player to pick, KO or Kent. I choose Kent every day and twice on Sundays. That is NOT a knock on KO. Great attacker. KO is one of the best players in the game. My opinion, Kent is THE best player in the game. And she does more for her team than just score and assist. She is great on the circle and is relentless on the ride. And what is so ridiculously remarkable about her is she steps out of the highest level of women's hockey into the midst of a season of the highest level women's lacrosse and dominates girls who have been playing all year. She put up one of the two greatest finals performances in the history of the women's game while being guarded by a Tewaaraton finalist defender and also made plays all over the midfield. We are talking about to of the very elite. There are arguments to be made on both sides. I come down on Kent's.

I think you just proved his "one sided" argument for him - scoring only.

My sister played in the wooden stick area with natural boundaries so you can lose the air of superiority on the womens game and it's rules- I have been watching for 35 years... The pocket in their sticks has grown immensely since then and that has helped. But the passing with the now-limited pockets is still far far below that in the men's. The guys draw far bigger crowds- and it's just because their game showcases passing and great shooting, in short better skills. By the way- see any Mikey Powell's or Gary Gaits they should be showcasing better?? No, not at the moment since the Thompson brothers graduated.

The endless fouling, scrums around a ground ball in the women's game make it hard to enjoy. It's by far the majority opinion in these forums, so lose the huge attitude and work for change, the game is good but should be so much better.
