MCLA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Arizona State Men’s Lacrosse 14-8 Win Over Cal Berkeley On Feb 16 At The 2013 Pac-12 Lacrosse Shootout

MCLA Lacrosse: “2013 Pac-12 Lacrosse Shootout” On Feb 16-17 Featured #2 Arizona State Men’s Lacrosse Defeating Cal 14-8 And #11 Stanford Posting Wins Over Oregon State And Oregon

The Pac-12 Shootout, hosted annually by UCLA, is a very cool idea, and this year 11 of the dozen traditional members of the conference (Colorado was the only omission) converged on Los Angeles for highly competitive games. The two programs that left looking the best? Arizona State and Stanford.

The Pac-12 Shootout, hosted annually by UCLA, is a very cool idea, and this year 11 of the dozen traditional members of the conference (Colorado was the only omission) converged on Los Angeles for highly competitive games. The two programs that left looking the best? Arizona State and Stanford.

The second-ranked Sun Devils coasted past No. 15 Cal in their lone game of the Shootout, 14-8, and then routed San Diego State on Sunday in an SLC divisional mcla_logogame, 19-4. No. 11 Stanford, which already has a win over No. 8 UC Santa Barbara to its credit, fought off a talented Oregon State team on Saturday, 10-8, and then routed No. 7 Oregon, 14-7, on Sunday. Both ASU and the Cardinal should be Top 5 teams this week. “Should” being in the optimal word.

Despite the setback to Stanford on Sunday, it was still a productive week for Oregon. The Ducks edged PNCLL rival Simon Fraser (ranked No. 22) on Wednesday and then stunned (soon-to-be-formerly) No. 4 Chapman, 9-8 on the Panthers own field. It’s tough seeing Oregon dropping out of the Top 10.

The team with the most issues coming out of the Shootout? Arizona. A 14-5 loss to Cal proves the Wildcats are not yet back to the elite level, but they are staring at the schedule of a title contender. And if they don’t beat Grand Canyon this Saturday, they’ll be looking at a first round match-up with either UCSB or Chapman in the SLC tourney.

NCAA Lacrosse: Marquette Women’s Lacrosse Picks Up Program’s First Win In 12-11 Overtime Victory Over Coastal Carolina On February 17

Marquette Women's Lacrosse

Freshman Hayley Baas scored the game-winning goal 1:31 into a second overtime period as the Marquette University women’s lacrosse team picked up its first win in program history, 12-11, over Coastal Carolina at Brooks Stadium in Conway, S.C.
The Golden Eagles (1-1) led by as many as four goals and managed to pull out the victory after Coastal Carolina took a 11-10 just 1:19 into the first overtime.
Freshman Kenzie Brown, who notched a game-high seven points, scored her fifth goal of the contest to knot the score at 11 as the first three minutes of overtime expired. Neither team scored after the switch as the game headed to the sudden-death overtime period where Baas would score the game winner, her second tally of the game.
The Chanticleers (0-2) were the first to score in extra time as CCU’s Lily Yednock capitalized with the wind at her back to take an 11-10 lead.
After a 7-3 Marquette lead at the half, Coastal Carolina scored five of the first six goals of the second to knot the score at eight. Brown answered with the man advantage to retake the lead and Marquette nearly capitalized on the ensuing draw on a breakaway by Moore, S.C., native Anna Muzika.
Claire Costanza put the Golden Eagles back on top by a pair, 10-8, roughly three-and-a-half minutes later after scooping up a ground ball at midfield and running it all the way in for the marker.
Coastal responded by tying the game at 10 with a little over three minutes remaining and neither team was able to score as regulation came to a close.

NCAA Lacrosse: Ohio State Men’s Lacrosse Tops Jacksonville 9-6 At The 2013 Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic On February 17

Ohio State Men's Lacrosse vs Jacksonville

In the Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic at EverBank Field, the No. 19/20-ranked Ohio State men’s lacrosse team defeated host Jacksonville, 9-6, Sunday afternoon to improve to 2-0 on the year. The Buckeyes, who were ahead by one goal at halftime and after the third quarter, outscored the Dolphins, 3-1, in the fourth quarter for the victory.
“We have to continue to grow up on the offensive end of the field,” Nick Myers, Ohio State head coach, said. “We got a little out of sorts; it’s going to take some time to develop chemistry. We have some young guys we’re mixing in. I’m proud of the way the defense hung in there and hunkered down. We gave up some early goals and then really played well in the second half. That’s something we can build off of for sure.”
Individually, seniors Logan Schuss and Dominique Alexander and sophomore Jesse King each scored twice, while junior Adam Trombley and sophomore David Planning each had two points on a goal and an assist. Junior goalie Greg Dutton had nine saves for the Buckeyes. The defense, led by starters freshman Robby Haus and juniors Joe Meurer and Dominic Imbordino, limited the Dolphins to six goals and 24 shots, with just two goals allowed and six shots against in the second half.
“It’s good to be able to learn from a win,” Myers said. We come away from today knowing there’s a lot we have to get better at. It’s a W. As we move into this next week we’ll go home and study a lot of film and work on the fundamentals. It was good for our team to get into an environment that’s uncomfortable, on a big stage. To come away with a win is something you can build off.”
