MCLA Lacrosse: Michigan Men’s Lacrosse (3-0) Defeated Loyola Marymount 12-2 On March 2


 The University of Michigan Men’s Lacrosse team earned a 12-2 win over the Lions of Loyola Marymount on Wednesday afternoon (March 2) in Los Angeles, California in front of a sparse crowd that featured mostly Wolverine fans and parents. 

U-M was slow to start scoring but found their stride as the first quarter came to a close, scoring twelve unanswered goals before Loyola scored two goals to end the game as the Wolverines improved to 3-0 overall this season.

The Lions won the opening faceoff and proceeded to control possession for most of the quarter by holding the ball in the offensive zone. When the Wolverines were finally able to obtain possession, senior attackman Chad Carroll (Cincinnati, OH – St. Xavier High) found the twine at 2:48 on a blast from the mid wing with the assist going to sophomore midfielder Joe Hrusovsky (Lake Forest, IL – Lake Forest). It was the only goal for either team in the opening frame as U-M led 1-0 after 15 minutes.

Senior attackman Trevor Yealy (Pittsburgh, PA – Upper St. Clair) converted with a nice crease dodge at 11:17 of the second on a pass from senior midfielder Roy Ichikawa (San Diego, CA – Torrey Pines) to start Michigan’s scoring run of three more unanswered goals. The last and most notable goal came off a faceoff win by senior midfielder Brian Greiner (Grosse Pointe, MI – Grosse Pointe South/RPI) who ran down the field battling through four defenders before scoring his first goal as a Wolverine, giving the squad a 5-0 lead at the end of the first half.

NCAA Lacrosse: Top-Ranked Syracuse Men’s Lacrosse And Virginia Play Friday Mar 4 In Syracuse As Orange Second Line Middies Will Be Forced To “Produce Goals”


The first midfield line of Amidon, Miller and Thompson will enter Friday’s 6 p.m. showdown vs. Virginia (4-0) in the Carrier Dome (Time Warner) with nine goals in two games.

Syracuse Men's Lacrosse Soph. Attacker Jo Jo Marasco. SU’s top scoring freshman with 17 points (9g, 8a

The second unit of senior Jeff Gilbert and a rotation of sophomores Ryan Barber, Peter Coleman and Steve Ianzito has been held to a single goal by Coleman (Barber missed the opener due to illness). The disparity has been great enough to worry Orange fans and compel SU coach John Desko to consider alternatives. “It’s still a work in progress, and we’re going to try to give them as many opportunities as possible,” Desko said following Sunday’s 11-9 victory over Army, a game in which the second midfield line produced no points and committed several unforced turnovers. “Whoever gets in and first of all doesn’t make mistakes and then produces on top of it will earn playing time.” Desko knows that tinkering with the lineup before a showdown with Virginia in front a large crowd is risky business. Yet, he is weighing his options. There appear to be three:

 

The status quo. All four players employed thus far on the second midfield had solid game experience last season and have been with the team at least two years and change. The experience was supposed to supply confidence and protection against unforced errors.

So far it has failed to work out that way, but it is still a tad early to push the panic button.

“I think if we could just get the guys to take what they do in practice and translate it to the games,” Desko said. “But we have been giving them opportunities and they’ve been making mistakes and haven’t worked their way through that yet. I’m not going to give up on anybody, but it’s probably time to give some other people opportunities, too.”
