Lax beats Mercer 14-4 FIRST WIN IN PROGRAM HISTORY

Submitted by weasel3216 on March 4th, 2012 at 9:38 AM

Today at 10, the lacrosse team is taking on Mercer in Flordia.  The game is being streamed live on laxx.tv.  The web site is free so lets get as many people watching as possible.  

As for the game itself, Mercer is a very bad D1 team.  They are currently 0-4 with losses to Detroit, Ohio, North Carolina, and Bellarmine.  Common opponent being Detroit, Mercer lost 16-7, while we lost 13-9.  I know it is hard to compare teams based on scored, but what i will say is that Michigan lost to Detroit in their very first lacrosse game ever at the D1 level, Mercer lost to Detroit in the 4th game of the season at home.  This is Mercer's second season as a D1 program.

Should be a great game, but i think we will see Michigan pull out a 3-4 goal victory today and see Team One get the first win in program history.

I'm really glad they're wearing the winged helmet. I saw them in Philly when they had the exhibition tournament w Towson and St Johns(?) and I wasn't a fan of the maize helmets with the old school wolverine on it

In the girls game they use a yellow ad it still isn't easy to track the ball.  The ball is about the size of a baseball and at this level the passes are fast enough that it is hard to track the ball while it is in the air.  Mostly watching the player reaction for TV broadcasts.

Yealy again. 11-3. It's looking like Team 1's going to get the program's first win ever so if you aren't watching now, you should turn it on because there's only one first win

it's good to see us just totally outclass an opponent so early

edit: i thought 13-3 but the broadcast scoreboard is either behind or something got called off...?

edit 2: broadcast caught up. they seem to be having some trouble, but it's free so whatever.
