Apr 06, 2018 - Comments: 0

This spring, Northern Review sports editor Grant Pepper will be following the Ohio Northern men's lacrosse team as they enter their third year of competition. After finishing seventh in the OAC in year one and fifth in year two, the Polar Bears are looking to contend for their first conference crown in 2018.

ONU won its first OAC game of the season last Friday, trouncing Mount Union, 10-2. They did so without their starting goalkeeper, however, as junior Alex Pizarro was sidelined with an injury. The Polar Bears sent backup Andrew Markell out for his first career start.

When it comes to lacrosse, like most sports, each region has its own style of play.

“Whenever you play teams from Long Island or New York, they always complain about getting hit,” Anthony Pavone, a freshman Polar Bear lacrosse player from Ohio, said with a laughing smirk.

Alex Pizarro, another member of the first Ohio Northern lacrosse team, couldn’t deny it. Neither could Peter Hardt, a player from Long Island, NY. Pizarro is from Maryland, but he agrees that the game is played differently in Ohio than it is on the East Coast.
