MCLA Division I

No. 4 Brigham Young 17, No. 12 Oregon 14 A track meet broke out between the Cougars and the Ducks, and on the strength of a 7-3 second quarter, BYU was able to hold on at the end. Mike Fabrizio paced the Cougars with four goals and three assists while Jake Ferrin and Barrett Johnson also added four goals in the winning effort. BYU dominated the ground ball battle and Ducks’ goalie Austin Fisher could not replicate his spectacular first round performance, making only eight saves in the loss.

No. 3 Arizona State 15, No. 6 UC Santa Barbara 5 The Sun Devils made it a clean sweep over the Gauchos this spring, winning their third matchup of the season. (No stats available)

No. 2 Colorado 9, No. 10 Michigan State 2 Michigan State could not find an answer for Brad Macnee and the Colorado defense, as the Buffs pulled out a grinder. (No stats available)

No. 1 Colorado State 9, No. 9 Sonoma State 4 The Rams continue their defensive dominance of the MCLA, allowing the Seawolves to muster just 16 shots on the day. Josh Gregg and Mike Wolff each potted a pair of goals for CSU while Jack Regan and Koltin Fatzinger combined to make eight saves. (Partial stats available)

MCLA Division 2

No. 4 Liberty 10, No. 12 Grove City 9 Grove City looked like they might be on the cusp of pulling another upset, leading Liberty 8-7 heading into the final frame, but the Flames once again pulled the comeback. Bryce Mrakovich paced Liberty with three goals and two dimes while Ryan Miller and Joe Gargiulo struck for a pair each. Ethan Kamholtz had a dozen saves to pick up the win in net. David Hall was GCC’s top gun with five markers and two helpers.

No. 3 St. John’s 10, No. 6 Grand Valley State 8 Jacob Helmer (4g, 1a) paced the Johnnies to their second win of the year over Grand Valley State and vaulted St. John’s into the semifinals for the first time since 2009. Cole Armitage helped out the SJU cause with two goals and two assists. Brenden Austin had a hat trick for the Lakers.

No. 2 Westminster 15, No. 10 Indiana Tech 6 The Griffins continued their dominating ways, racing out to a 5-1 lead over the Warriors in the first quarter and never looked back. Adam Marfice and Elias Fairman each netted four markers and Collin Madsen dished out four assists in the winning effort. Justing Famiglietti turned away 17 shots for Indiana Tech, but it was not enough.

No. 1 St. Thomas 18, No. 9 Coast Guard 8 After a casual start to the tournament, St. Thomas looked more like its dominating self, taking a 12-7 lead at halftime and then burying Coast Guard in the second half. The Bears couldn’t solve Matt Kleven, who posted seven goals for the Tommies, and he was helped by Peter Carbonneau and Peter Schubloom, who each scored two. Eric Schmid and Steven Danseglio had two goals each for the Bears.
