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.
Stats- Michigan had a pretty good game and the stats don't lie. Shocking one was perfect on clears.
