SELC D2 – Games Of Interest – Think Palm Beach And Sailfish

0 - Published March 1, 2012 by in Division II, Uncategorized

All the action seems to be in Palm Beach, Florida, home of those Palm Beach Atlantic Fighting “Salifish”.  Love that “SAILFISH” logo!

Fri. March 2nd: Lynchburg, VA: Reinhardt Vs, Liberty – Not a divisional game, but a good barometer for both teams. Reinhardt still has me asking “Are they for real?”  A victory here would put the questions to rest.  Liberty is 2-0 in their division already and seem to be on there way to at least the second place playoff spot in their division.

Fri. March 2nd: Palm Beach, FL: US Coast Guard Vs. Palm Beach Atlantic – PBAU defeated USCG 9-8 in overtime last year. USCG is the #18 nationally ranked team in the “Inside Lacrosse” coaches poll. Would be a very excellent win for those fighting Sailfish!

Sat. March 3rd: Palm Beach, FL: US Coast Guard Vs. Elon – Nationally ranked teams battle it out (USCG #18, Elon #14). It’s a definite national barometer game.

Sun. March 4th: Palm Beach, FL:  St. John’s Vs. Elon – Elon and St. John’s is a first-time matchup for the two schools. St. John’s is the #5 nationally ranked team in the national coaches poll, and Elon is #14. Yet another national barometer game with big implications.  How big is the gap between the Top 5 and the Top 15?  Is there a gap at all?  We’ll find out more soon!

Sun. March 4th: Palm Beach, FL: Grand Valley State Vs. Palm Beach Atlantic – These two teams have never met. Grand Valley State in the #5 nationally ranked team in MCLA D2.  Sailfish will have their hands full with this national powerhouse, but if PBAU can win?  They could make a big jump!

The “SELC D2 GAMES of INTEREST” is on spring break in Helsingborg, Sweden next week and will return in two weeks!
