Holy Cross won its first-ever Patriot League Tournament title with a thrilling 9-6 come-from-behind victory over two-time defending champion, Colgate, last Sunday afternoon in Worcester, Mass. Le Moyne earned a trip to the play-in game after defeating Canisius, 15-10, in the MAAC Tournament championship.

Holy Cross captured its first-ever Patriot League regular season title after going 6-0 in conference play this season. The Crusaders snapped Colgate's 22-game Patriot League winning streak after a 9-7 win in the regular season finale for the right to host the conference tournament. Just 10 days later, the two teams met up again in the tournament championship, where Holy Cross battled back from a 5-1 halftime deficit to win the tournament title and punch its ticket to the NCAA Play-In game.
