FOXBOROUGH, MASS - Albany lacrosse has lost just twice all season. On Saturday, Yale is going to try to beat the Great Danes twice on their own.
The last time the teams met on April 22 was filled with abnormalties. Albany's leading scorer Connor Fields went off with injury in the first quarter and star faceoff specialist TD Ierlan lost handidly in the faceoff battle.
Second time through, it's going to be more challenging for the Bulldogs.
“It’s tough, I’ve only done it a handful of times in my career,” said Yale attackman Ben Reeves of beating the same team twice. “It will be a challenge for sure.”
Reeves, the Yale leading scorer with 102 points, was the only productive player in the Bulldogs' Ivy League loss to Cornell. Since then, the rest of the offense has turned it on, with Matt Gaudet and Jackson Tigh contributing to one of the deepest offenses in the league.
