i like 'em both
Michigan beat Boston College 14-7 tonight. This game seemed to be closer than the score indicated as BC outshot Michigan 40-34 and dominated faceoffs BC winning 16 of 24.
I guess none of this matters as it is still a win. Tomorrow night is a huge game against UC-Santa Barara who is currently 6-3 and ranked 10th in the MCLA. They lost to Michigan State Thursday night 10-11 so they should be pissed off and at least hoping to get one win out of this "Midwest" trip.
Not exactly ground breaking since Brandon has been pretty open about his plans, but good to see (for us lacrosse alums at least)...
By the way, the team is 7-0 and ranked #1 in the MCLA. They have two home games this weekend, both in Oosterbaan Fieldhouse. 7pm tonight vs. Boston College and 7pm tomorrow vs. Cal Santa Barbara.
Next weekend is their big home stand. #2 Arizona State and #3 Colorado State come to town. If you're curious, that's the weekend to get out to see them.
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.
