I've played or reported on lacrosse for much of my life, and some things have stuck with me. Here are just a few things that I - and other lovers of the game - look forward to each week:   We love wall ball, hammering skills until hands blister. Wind sprints that make lungs burn. Reading scouting reports on the bulletin board.   We love the silent bus ride before battle. Team meals with family. Face paint.   Franklin Field, The Dome, Homewood Field, Klockner Stadium.

BETHESDA -- "Total domination," screamed Landon midfielder Willie McDonald as he trotted off the field in the fourth period of his team's 12-4 rout of St. Mary's in a battle of top-ranked teams from the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas yesterday.The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder had just captured his 14th faceoff in 21 draws and taken the ball to the goal for the game's final score with 9: 52 left to play.The effort in front of a home crowd of about 1,000 eased the pain of Landon's earlier 13-5 loss to No. 2 St. Paul's, in which McDonald said the Bears "got killed" on faceoffs.

Cornell has placed its men's lacrosse team on temporary suspension and canceled all "fall ball" competitions pending an investigation into a hazing incident last Friday, the school said today in a statement. The penalty was due to allegations of "coerced consumption of alcohol by underage freshmen," according to multiple reports. According to LaxPower, the Big Red was scheduled to play the Iroquois Nationals on Sept. 29 in Cortland, N.Y., and in the Capital Lacrosse Classic in Bethesda on Oct. 13; the latter event is a fundraiser for the foundation honoring former Cornell player George Boiardi , who died after being struck in the chest by a lacrosse ball during a 2004 game against Binghamton.

When Penn State hired Jeff Tambroni as its lacrosse coach last July, a lot of his fellow coaches were happy but sad. A dream matchup could become a nightmare. "If the university decides to step up to the plate and support the program, and my sense is that must be the case with Jeff there, I think they can be a power," Syracuse coach John Desko said of the hire. It's inevitable. It might take two years, maybe three or four, but the Nittany Lions will become a power under Tambroni, just like Cornell did during his 10 years there.

Gilman assistant coach Stan White called it "a win. A very lucky win."Down by three with nine seconds to play, visiting Landon of Montgomery County had the ball on Gilman's 1-yard line when the Greyhounds' Andrew Lucas recovered a fumbled handoff -- one successfully executed several times previously by Bears quarterback Ted Lamade and fullback Will MacDonald -- as No. 1 Gilman (4-0) edged the Washington Post's 17th-ranked team, 10-7."I was blitzing inside, turned and saw the fumble," Lucas said.

Cornell University released its report Sunday on incidents that led to the suspension of the men's lacrosse team from fall events. The report reveals what it calls a "presence of a culture within this group of treating new members as less than equals. " The report, found on the university's website dedicated to the reporting of hazing incidents , says freshmen on the team were expected to do menial tasks and chores. It also details an incident in which the freshmen were challenged by teammates in a "keg race," which resulted in multiple members vomiting.

Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala could not begin to recount the number of times he has been hit hard by a lacrosse ball. When he was an All-America defenseman at Hopkins in the late 1980s, Pietramala did anything to disrupt his opponent, starting with a stick check or physical contact to dislodge the ball. He also did not think twice about stepping in front of a shooter, either to cut off his view of the goal or to block his shot. It wasn't unusual for him to jump in front of his goalkeeper to seal the cage - and pay by absorbing a hard shot to the upper body.

Friday's edition of The Sun will include an article on the top defenseman for five of the six teams participating in Saturday'sFace-Off Classicat M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Four of the five aforementioned have been named All Americans and one was arguably compiling an equally worthy season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last year. While collecting information for the article, I asked each coach to compare his defenseman to a former player he had coached. Here are their thoughts.
