Michigan picked up their first win of the season and second win in program history today over St. Joseph's (5-9) today 11-8. Michigan played an outstanding game and dominated in every section besides the final score.
This is Michigan's first home win in program history, first win at Michigan Stadium, first win on senior day, and first win over a power conference team.
Next up for Michigan is #1 Denver on Saturday, 4/27 at 3pm EST. That one will most likely be ugly but it's nice to avoid a goose egg.
Michigan's annual game against Detroit which was supossed to have been the first night game in lacrosse at Michigan Stadium yesterday was on weather delay twice.
UDM led 4-3 early in the second period before the game was ultimately suspended and the fate of it was supossed to be announced today.
Well earlier in the day, Michigan & UDM decided not to continue the game and just cancel it. Michigan now only has one realistic chance at winning a game this season and it's Saturday against St. Joe's. Then they will go on the road to Denver for the season finale. (Will be final game since only top-4 make it to ECAC Tourney)
Another tough loss today for Michigan. They were just flat out beat today by a hungrier team. And it hurts to say that.
Delaware lead 6-1 at halftime and at one point was up 11-2.
Next up for the Laxers is the biggest game of the season. Battle at The Big House II which will take place at 3:30pm following the football spring game. Last year Michigan came close, losing 12-9 to ohio.

Another close one for Michigan today at the Metropolitan Lacrosse Classic at Citi Field, home of the Mets. Thanks to Mets owner and Michigan alum Fred Wilpon, Michigan was the home team.
Without a couple sloppy plays on defense by Michigan and the fatal colgate mistake of nearly scoring on themselves coming to fruition, Michigan could have very well won this game.
Saturday, 3/23, Michigan will get the defending national champion #10 Loyola (MD) at Michigan Stadium to open up the true home slate. Game will be on MGoBlueTV. This is Loyola's final season in the ECAC. They will be defecting to the Patriot League next season.

3:00 vs Colgate. Citi Field (home of the Wilpons, er Mets)
For all of us East Coast folks, great chance to see Team Two live today. For everyone else, the game is on ESPNu.
Colgate has the reigning Tewaarton Award winner (lacrosse version of the Heisman) in Peter Baum. They were a tournament team last year. This is not a team we should beat at this point in the program's development, but the boys are coming off a pretty good showing against Fairfield Thursday night. Great chance for Michigan fans to see some of this first recruiting class who are all playing a lot as freshmen. Gerald Logan, Kyle Jackson and Mike Hernandez especially.
