NS 10 GAMES LAX TO WATCH

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_Lax

Another season of New England D3 lacrosse has officially begun, which means its time to unveil our first 10 Games to Watch (and predictions) for games this weekend.

Springfield College at Middlebury College (WLAX) | Friday, March 8th at 3 p.m.: The Panthers were stunned one week ago against Bates, but they should crack the win column Friday against the Pride. Erica Barr could be a player to watch in this particular outing. PREDICTION: Middlebury College 

UMass Dartmouth at Wheaton College (MLAX) | Friday, March 8th at 4 p.m.: Coach Kyle Hart‘s Lyons will look to continue its early-season momentum on Friday when they host a Corsairs squad that hasn’t competed since last month when they topped Emmanuel, 19-8. Keep an eye on Wheaton’s Pete Chisholm, who has enjoyed a successful first season with 13 goals and one assist. PREDICTION: Wheaton College 

Framingham State at UMass Dartmouth (WLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 11 a.m.: After falling to Springfield, Framingham State will look to bounce back with a win over the Corsairs on Saturday.  UMass Dartmouth opened its season one week ago with a 12-4 win over Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Hanna McMahon will be a player to watch in this one for the Rams, who concluded her team’s initial contest with five points on four goals and one assist. PREDICTION: Framingham State 

New England College at Coast Guard Academy (MLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 12 p.m.: The Bears and Pilgrims will meet at Tierney Field in Sparks, Maryland for an important early season meeting. Both teams need to gain some momentum as they head into mid-to-late March clashes. Coast Guard should find a way to bounce back after losing to Wesleyan earlier this week. PREDICTION: Coast Guard Academy 

Wesleyan University at Bates College (MLAX) | Saturday, Mach 9th at 1 p.m.: Since falling to RIT, the Bobcats have scored two important wins, including a conference victory against Middlebury, but they will be tested on Saturday against the defending national champion Cardinals. PREDICTION: Wesleyan University 

Colby College at Hamilton College (MLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 1 p.m.: The Mules lost their conference-opener to Amherst before netting 28 goals days later against Thomas College. That offensive output will be needed against a Continentals squad, which looks to bounce back from an opening day loss to Tufts. PREDICTION: Colby College 

Plymouth State at Lasell College (MLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 1 p.m.: The Panthers fended off a late rally to beat University of New England but will need its defense to play a tad bit better against Lasell, which looks to bounce back from a recent setback to Roger Williams. PSU’s Chase Mercier will certainly be a player to watch after recording six points (three goals, three assists) against the Nor’Easters. PREDICTION: Plymouth State 

Williams College at Trinity College (WLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 1 p.m.: The Bantams are quite young this year. In fact, they have 13 first-years on their roster, but coach Katy Dissinger has total faith in her squad, especially after a solid opening day win on Thursday over Skidmore. PREDICTION: Trinity College 

Endicott College at Babson College (WLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 1 p.m.: This could be a potential first-round (or second round) NCAA Tournament preview as both teams are expected to capture their respective conference crown. Babson is coming off an impressive win earlier this week against Bates, thanks to seven goals and two assists from Lexi Lenaghan.

MIT at Roger Williams (WLAX) | Saturday, March 9th at 3 p.m.: MIT’s Cecilia McCormick and Ana Flooks will be two players to watch in this one as both seniors will attempt to lead the Engineers to their second-straight win. PREDICTION: MIT

The Bay State teams consist of two 10-person squads, a first and second team for both men and women. Both teams are powered by our friends from Zelos Athletics
