Despite these circumstances, the Women’s Lacrosse 1st XI continued their unbeaten record with a 16-8 win over Aberdeen University. The impressive goal tally is representative of their attacking prowess and the harmony which...
St. Andrews Men's Lacrosse came back second-term, thumping the Glasgow Lions 15-6.  There was no contest in the first-half—the Saints controlled on offense and took the upper hand on defense.  Goals came easy and the differential was comfortable by half-time; but the Lions stayed competitive. Tense rivalry between the Lions and St. Andrews has been standard since the teams' first...
The St Andrews Men’s Lacrosse Club faces a prodigious Martinmas schedule.  Solid performance first-term puts the team at the top of the BUCS Scottish 1A lacrosse league; their next opponent—University of Edinburgh—will host them midway through Week 2.  St Andrews faces Edinburgh the following week for the BUCS Trophy Quarter Finals, a tournament St Andrews has won before but not...

Win under the light

University of St Andrews Mens Lacrosse defeated Glasgow University on Wednesday. The match was conceded by Glasgow, who failed to bring the minimum ten players necessary to field a team.
