We’re back for another installment of Friday Statwatch, which is our back-of-the-envelope statistical look at American girls’ lacrosse.

After today’s 9-4 win over the as-tough-as-expected Notre Dame Prep team from Towson, Md., Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) now has a 171 game winning streak that extends all the way back to April 11, 2009, when it lost to Canandaigua (N.Y.)

In an era of high unemployment since the financial crisis of 2008, thousands of job cuts befell the likes of MCI-World Com, Enron, Bear Stearns, and other failing businesses.

Well, there goes the neighborhood. Again. A raft of interstate results and showdowns have once again shaken up the Top 10, and it’s getting to the point where the competition is so sophisticated and the difference between winning and losing is such a fine knife-edge that you may have a situation similar to a decade ago […](image)
