In a rematch of last year’s MCLA semifinals, the #1 Colorado State Rams jumped out to a 6-1 lead after one quarter of play and kept the pressure on for the rest of the game en route to an impressive 16-5 victory over #4 Brigham Young on a gorgeous Friday evening in Provo, UT.
The Rams scored early and often, highlighted by a career day from Kacy Carter (Rock Canyon HS / Castle Rock, CO), who led all scorers will seven goals and two assists. Carter and fellow attackman Austin Fisher (Rock Canyon HS / Highlands Ranch, CO) combined for 11 goals while senior midfielder Tim Taggart (Mountain Vista HS, Highlands Ranch, CO) also had a career-high four goals as CSU led from start to finish.
After CSU scored the first three goals of the game, BYU’s Mike Fabrizio broke the drought for the Cougars with 2:50 remaining in the first quarter. But CSU’s Dan Warfield (Smoky Hill HS / Aurora, CO) won the ensuing face-off and fed Carter for a quick answer to quell the momentum. The Rams ran off two more goals to close the first quarter out 6-1.
Fisher got a quick one in the second before BYU closed out the second quarter scoring with two goals to make the halftime lead 7-3, including a tally with less than three seconds by Jake Ferrin. But the Rams removed all drama as Taggart and Carter scored two goals early in the third to make it 9-3 and the Rams coasted from there.

NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Dominican Men’s Lacrosse Start Fast In 12-4 Win Over Adams State On April 5

Dominican Men's Lacrosse vs Adams State

The return of sophomore Jake Bernstein to the Dominican University of California lineup provided a high in the Rocky Mountain state on Friday.
Bernstein, who missed the last five games due to injury, had two goals and an assist in the opening period and classmate Kevin Powers recorded his first hat trick of the season as the Penguins jumped to an early 6-1 lead en route to a 12-4 victory over Adams State. The win, the third in a row by Dominican, kept the Penguins (5-4/3-0) in first place in the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association with a showdown looming on Sunday, March 7 in Grand Junction against Colorado Mesa University.
“Having Jake back is a big boost for us all over the field,” said Head Coach Ned Webster. “He is a shot of adrenaline for our team.”
The Penguins had seven different players score goals and seven record assists against Adams State (1-6/0-2). Jake Fritz and Cody Bernstein, Jake’s younger brother, had two assists apiece while freshman Grant Clifford and senior Cam Evangelho both tallied two goals for Dominican including Evangelho’s team-leading eighth man-up goal this season. The Penguins came into the game leading the nation in NCAA Division II in man-up offense scoring percentage (.514).
Offensively, Dominican was sparked by Dylan Acevedo (team-bet six ground balls) and Blake Crossman, who combined to win 13 of 20 face-off games in the game.
“Once we had the ball on offense, I felt we moved it well and took quality shots,” Webster said.
Defensively, led by goalie Sean Donohue’s six saves, the Penguins’ limited Adams State’s Seth Sowell, the WILA’s leading scorer, to no goals and five shots.
“To give up [only] four goals to an athletic team like Adams State is an accomplishment for Coach Christopher Dean and our defense,” Webster said.
The Penguins seized control of the game from the outset, scoring four unanswered goals in a three-minute span in the first period when they took 14 of the first 17 shots in the contest.
