things go poorly
Just a quick update for those interested in M-Lax. Final 20-1. Pitt did not score until the 4th.
7-0 on the season, next up Boston College (2-1) and UC-Santa Brarbara (6-2).
Michigan defeated BYU (a very good team in MCLA) 16-6 tonight. Michigan won in every catergory for the game. Michigan opened up the game on a 9-0 run, those not used to the game this is an amazing start, similar to a 20-0 start in basketball i would compare it to.
Michigan will take on Pitt tomorrow night in AA. Pitt is 5-1 on the season, there one lost came against #25 Central Flordia. I assume that this should be another blowout in favor of the Blue, but stranger things have happened.
Michigan lax won 15-5 today in Athens, OH. Michigan outshot OU 43-19, picked up 62 groundballs to OU's 37, and was 19/25 on faceoffs.
I am a little shocked that Michigan only won by 10, but without watching the game it is hard to tell if they stalled towards the end. Michigan almost ended the 1st half 9-0, but OU tallied two goals in the last 1:20.
With all the excitment about basketball today i figured i would let those that are interested in M-Lax know that Michigan beat Chapman 11-8 today to finish up the Spring Break trip. This puts Michigan 4-0 on the year with most of the remaining games in the confines of Oosterbaan.
Just a quick look at the stats and Michigan took the lead 3-2 and never looked back after that. Chapman did outshot and controled more faceoffs that Michigan, but the important part is that Michigan got the W.
On to Ohio.
Michigan beat Oregon 9-8 in double overtime on 02.25.2011 for the first victory of their annual Spring Business Trip (as the team has been known to call it). Write up can be found here:
I know lacrosse doesn't get a lot of love around here but being from NY and a big lacrosse fan I thought there could be a pretty good discussion about a really great sport, NCAA lacrosse.
No notable upsets this week except #15 tOSU upsetting then #11 North Carolina 13-8 and #9 Notre Dame upsetting then #6 Duke 12-7. tOSU had a 9-1 run in the 2nd and 3rd quarters to go ahead of UNC. Top teams Syracuse, Virginia, Maryland, Hofstra, Stony Brook all won easily.
Zach Howell from Duke had 9 points (7g,2a) in there 20-6 opening day win over Siena.
Michigan opened the season with a 26-6 win over Florida.
