While most college kids spent Spring Break losing their brains aka #winning in Punta Canaa, Cancun and Miami, Trinity lacrosse did the ol’ fashion kind of winning: 9-7 vs. Bowdoin, 18-11 vs. Wheaton and 6-5 vs. Colby. The first Maine beatdown was ignited by former Bay Area Athlete of the Week Brendan Newland who scored the first goal in a decisive four goal run that put the Bants ahead for good. Bowdoin desperately tried to claw back the rest of the way, but a Polar Bear in a Hartford Heat Wave had as a much of a chance of succeeding as Lindsay Lohan in rehab. The Bantams kept the momentum going against Wheaton College by scoring goals like they were Molly pills at Ultra. Trinity, behind five tallies from the best Canadien import since Michael J. Fox, Jeff Hebert, broke open a tight first quarter with eight second quarter g’s and never looked back. Eric Philips bundled a couple of kids, PJ Johnson made a few saves and Mike Ritter added his first goal of the season to finish out the route. Then, on Saturday, Trinity put its winning streak as well as its recently earned national ranking on the line against the Colby White Mules in Waterville, Maine. Three early goals, a Kevin Looby Hat Trick and a tenacious D were all the Bants needed to preserve perfection. With the big week, Trinity has its best start in recent memory and has made itself a front-runner to win this year’s NESCAC title. The road to the ‘ship may be long, but the fine students of Trinity have been known to stomach long roads before as evidenced below:
