MCLA Lacrosse: BYU Men’s Lacrosse (2-0) Defeated Loyola Marymount 16-10 On Feb 19 As 11 Different Players Score

The BYU Lacrosse team, behind a solid team effort, defeated the Loyola Marymount Lions 16-10 on Friday at Leavey Field on the Loyola Marymount campus in Los Angeles, CA. 11 different players tallied a goal for the Cougars as they improved to 2-0 on the season.

As the rain moved in, the Cougars jumped out to a quick lead behind goals from Junior Corey Gunderson, Junior Captain Ted Ferrin, and Junior Captain Drew Shumway. The offense put points on the board, while the defense kept the Lions off of it. Behind a solid effort from Freshman goalie Wes Goar, the Cougars only allowed 1 goal in the first period. After late goals from Sophomore Pat Matheson and Sophmore Mickell Walker the Cougars ended the first period up 5-1.

“It’s not a surprise that we wanted to get off to a fast start,” said Assistant coach Jordan Harris. “On the road, in the rain, against a top 15 team there were some obstacles that we had to climb over, but the team responded tremendously and set the tempo right from the get go.”

The Lions got a spark to start the second quarter as BYU was assessed an illegal stick penalty to start the quarter. Capitalizing on the Man Up opportunity, the Lions cut the lead to 3 early in the second quarter. Junior Captain Jared Houghton responded for the Cougars pushing the lead back to 4. The Lions answered right back with another goal before the Cougars pushed the lead to 5 behind another goal from Houghton as well as a goal from Senior Dan Cole to end the half up 8-3.

NCAA Lacrosse: Ohio State Women’s Lacrosse (0-2) Loses 9-8 To Navy (2-0) As Navy Goalie Records School-Record 15-Saves

The Ohio State women’s lacrosse team came up short in a tale of two halves, dropping a 9-8 decision to Navy Friday night in Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md.

Senior Maghan Beaudrault led the Buckeyes with a pair of goals and junior Alayna Markwordt added three assists as they dropped to 0-2 on the season and the Mids improved to 2-0. The Buckeyes overcame a 3-1 game-opening deficit by scoring five-consecutive goals and pulling ahead by a 6-3 margin with 5:23 remaining in the first period.

Jayme Beard started off the scoring spree off an assist from Brittney Zerhusen at 17:15 and four additional Buckeyes continued it as the team took its first lead of the 2011 season. They would remain in command, up 6-4, as the teams headed into halftime.

Navy found the back of net to close out the opening period, however, and momentum stayed its favor following the intermission. The Mids rattled off three goals in a row to start the second period to take over the lead at 7-6 with 16:03 to play. The Buckeyes were not deterred, as Zerhusen scored on one of Markwordt’s three assists to tie it up and junior captain Gabby Capuzzi netted the go-ahead at the 12:21 mark.

Navy countered with the equalizer nearly two minutes later and went on to score what would stand as the game-winner with 8:38 to play on a free-position goal from Katrina Nietsch.

Navy goalie Elaina Ponchione finished the night with a school-record 15 saves, while the Buckeyes’ Annie Carruthers tallied six. Ohio State had a 30-23 shot advantage by the end of the game, including a commanding 21-9 margin in the first half. The Buckeyes also finished atop the draw control count, winning 10-of-18, and even in the groundball race, 21-21.

The Buckeyes remain on the East Coast for a noon game Sunday at American in the nation’s capital. The Eagles open their 2011 season with the Buckeyes with a team that features 19 returning letterwinners from last year’s squad, which finished 6-10 overall and 3-3 in the conference for a fourth-place tie.
