To begin our 2012-13 college sports wrap up, we decided to start with a list of great moments from this past lacrosse season that will be remembered. And even if you don’t recall these games next year or the year after, I am sure someone at Noontime Sports will.

So, without further ado, here’s our list of games, enjoy! And as always, feel free to share your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter (@NoontimeSports or @NoonSportsBlog) or email (NoontimeSports@gmail.com).

Wheaton Beat Eastern Connecticut For The First Time Since 1996: Behind five goals and four assists, Wheaton’s Matthew Hillman, who secured a spot on the single-game scoring list, fifth all-time, helped the Lyons defeated the Warriors, 12-11. Hillman’s fifth goal proved to be the difference to despite a late tally by the Warriors. The win snapped a four-game skid for the Lyons.

Tufts’ Defense Fends Off Middlebury: This was the first and only Jumbos game I covered, but it was a great one. The Panthers jumped out to an early lead, which the Jumbos erased, but it was Tufts’ defense that secured the midseason victory by fending off a few equalizer attempts during the final minutes. Middlebury used a 5-1 run to come within one point, but again, the Jumbos defense did their job. Dan Leventhal paced the Powder Blue and White with four tallies.

Melaugh Ties Merrimack School-Record: On Senior Day, Merrimack senior Greg Melaugh tied a school-record by netting nine goals in only three quarters while adding two helpers. The Warriors went onto defeat Assumption College, 16-11.

BU Rallies Past Harvard Under The Lights: The Terriers final contest in March was certainly an exciting one as they outscored the Crimson, 7-3, in the final frame to claim a 12-11 victory. Sydney Godett clinched the win with a strike off a free possession with 11 ticks remaining. Godett finished the contest with two tallies, while Danielle Etrasco led the Red and White with four goals.

Vandervelde Leads Harvard Past Penn In OT: Entering the final frame, the Crimson led the Quakers, 6-3. However, Harvard’s cushion evaporated after a 4-1 run by Penn, which forced an extra session. Yet, once overtime commenced, Harvard’s Murphy Vandervelde completed his hat trick, which lifted the Crimson to an 8-7 victory.

Endicott Wins First Playoff Game: After defeating Western New England in the Commonwealth Coast Conference championship, 17-15, Endicott’s women team earned their first postseason victory in program history with a 4-3 win against Springfield College in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Holly Davis, who finished with two goals and one assist, jumpstarted a 3-0 run in the second with one goal and one helper before Springfield closed the gap with a strike from Michelle Dorsey. The Gulls defense stymied the Pride’s attack, especially during the final few minutes, which helped seal the win.

UMass’ Ferris Earns Third All-America Honors: Katie Ferris, who led UMass with 75 points (52 goals, 23 assists), earned her third All-Americas Honors prior to Memorial Day, according to the college’s release. The New York native was named to WomensLax.com’s All-America Team in addition to earning a spot on the IWLCA (Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association) All-America Third Team and the SynapseSports.com All-America Third Team. This is the second straight season that Ferris was a member of each All-Americas teams.

Regis Wins Inaugural NECC Championship: While most games on this list either ended in overtime or with a late rally, this particular contest also needed an additional frame as first-year midfielder Sam Salamone netted the game-winner that helped Regis claim the inaugural New England Collegiate Conference crown against Becker College. Salamone, who hails from Milford, netted a game-best five tallies and finished her first season with the Pride with 116 points (92 goals, 24 assists).

Green, Sullivan Join Stonehill’s 200 Point Club: Kayla Green and Heather Sullivan each recorded their 200th career point in an 18-6 win against Southern Connecticut State in April. Green finished the season with a team-best 89 points (64 goals, 25 assists), while Sullivan ranked second with 75 points (62 goals, 13 assists).
