NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Adams State Men’s Lacrosse (3-8) Loses 5-4 To Deep South Conference (DSC) Champion Tampa (11-5) In Home Finale On April 18


Adams State Men's Lacrosse vs Tampa

Freshman Mike Telles (Henderson, Nev.) netted his third hat trick of the season while the Adams State University men’s lacrosse team played stellar half-field defense, but fell just short of a program-highlight upset of the visiting University of Tampa Spartans, Thursday afternoon in blustery conditions at the ASU Lacrosse & Soccer Field.
The Spartans, who won their second consecutive Deep South Conference regular season crown before falling in overtime in last week’s DSC Tournament Final, did much of their damage in transition en-route to the 5-4 win. The Floridians, who are ranked sixth in this week’s initial set of NCAA Division II South Region rankings, improved to 11-5 with the win while the Grizzlies, playing their final home game of the third ever season, fell to 3-8.
Telles’ effort, which raised his season goal-scoring total to a team and program-record setting total of 24, was matched by the Spartans’ Joey McMahan, who scored an even strength, man-down and man-up goal in the victory.
Seth Stowell (Lakeside, Calif.) also scored what was his 23rd goal of the season for the Grizzlies, who will wrap up the season on Apr. 27 at Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association and in-state rival Colorado Mesa, which will host Tampa on Saturday.
Telles has now scored at least once in each of the Grizzlies’ 11 games.
On Thursday, McMahan scored the game’s opening goal, an unassisted marker, just three minutes and 48 seconds in.
The Grizzlies then bounced back to take a 2-1 lead after the first quarter as Telles scored back-to-back goals, both of which came off Ian Morrison (Menlo Park, Calif.) assists just 36 seconds apart.
The Spartans then broke what was a nearly 19-minute stretch of scoreless lacrosse as Blake Pfohl tied the game at 2 with 2:27 left in the first half moments after the Spartans had killed the first of their five total penalties.
The Spartans then struck again in transition as McMahan converted a Jon McGowan pass on a fast-break to score a man-down goal with 25 seconds left in the half giving the visitors a 3-2 lead at the break.

NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Dominican Men’s Lacrosse (7-4) Wins First WILA Title With Impressive 20-6 Win Over Adams State On April 12


Dominican Men's Lacrosse vs Adams State

The victory by the Dominican University of California men’s lacrosse team on Friday was more than a big win. It was a historic one.
With their 20-6 triumph over Adams State of Colorado, the first-place Penguins (7-4/5-0) clinched their first Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association title. In addition, the victory was the fifth consecutive win by the Penguins, the longest winning streak in the lacrosse program’s nine-year history at Dominican, and their 20 goals in the game matched a school record.
“It feels good, especially the way we played. That was one of the better games we played this year,” said Dominican head coach Ned Webster, who received a celebratory Gatorade bath when the game ended. “We have won games this year and I haven’t felt entirely good about them. I feel pretty darn good about the way we won today.”
Senior Cam Evangelho scored a career-high six goals and Dalton Copeland added five goals as the Penguins overcame a goal by the Grizzlies(2-7/1-3) just 19 seconds into the game to overwhelm Adams State with shooting efficiency. Dominican scored six goals on its first seven shots and twice in the game had streaks when they scored seven unanswered goals. The Penguins’ 20 goals came on their first 31 shots in the contest at Kennelly Field in John F. Allen Athletics Complex.
“We’re looking for high percentage shots and I felt like the reason we scored the way we did was simply because we were patient,” Webster said. “We took the right shots.”
Evangelho and Copeland had seven shots apiece. Joining them in the scoring column were Jake Fritz (three goals), Conor Doyle (two goals) and freshmen Grant Clifford, Trevor Garner and Cody Bernstein who each contributed a goal. Bernstein also had five assists, giving him a team-best 40 points and WILA-high 21 assists this season. Sophomore Kevin Powers, the only player on the Penguins to record at least one point in every game this season, had three assists and also teamed with Copeland to dump the Gatorade on Webster.
Four years ago, when they entered Dominican together, Copeland and Evangelho probably didn’t see a championship on the horizon. The Penguins had a record of 6-9 before they signed up and that 2009 season included some lopsided losses.

NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Adams State Men’s Lacrosse (2-6) Tops Notre Dame De Namur 16-7 On April 7


Adams State Men's Lacrosse vs Notre Dame de Namur

Senior Kevin Bertrand (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) scored a season-high four goals while sophomore Seth Stowell (Lakeside, Calif.) netted his fourth hat trick of the season, to lead a prolific Adams State University offense in the Grizzlies’ 16-7 Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association win over visiting Notre Dame de Namur (Calif.) University, Sunday here at the ASU Lacrosse Field.
The Grizzlies, who snapped a 5-game slide while picking up their first WILA win of the season, scored at least three goals in each quarter as they posted a dominant 52-20 advantage in total shots while improving to 2-6 overall and to 1-2 in the WILA.
NDNU fell to 3-6 and to 0-4 in the WILA with the loss.
The Grizzlies’ 16 goals are second most in the program’s history and the most they have ever scored in 19 all-time WILA contests.
Throughout the day, the Grizzlies claimed a 55-31 edge in total ground balls while killing all four of the Argos’ extra-man opportunities.
Bryden Pelletier (Lantzville, British Columbia, Canada) also did a good job on face-offs winning 12 of 18. Grizzly freshman Tanner Brown (Cedar Park, Texas) also went 6-for-7 at the spot as the Grizzlies won 20 of the 27 re-starts, a big factor in the win, their third straight against the Argos over the last two seasons.
The Grizzlies never trailed and broke what was a 2-2 dead-lock with a 6-1 spurt over a good chunk of the first half as the Bertrand brothers— Brian and Kevin— scored just 1:30 apart to put the Grizzlies in front for good.
Stowell also scored less than a minute after Kevin Bertrand’s second tally of the game to give the Grizzlies a 5-2 lead that was trimmed slightly to 5-3 at the end of the first quarter.
The Grizzlies then scored three more goals, including a man-up tally from Alexander Rainey (Laguna Niguel, Calif.), to go up 8-3 before NDNU’s top player Kevin Nguyen broke what was a NDNU scoring drought of 14:58 to pull the Argos within 8-4 at the half.
Dan Bentley then pulled NDNU to within 8-5 with the second half’s opening goal before Mike Telles (Henderson, Nev.), Stowell and Bertrand all netted shots putting the Grizzlies in front 11-5.

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.

NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Adams State Men’s Lacrosse (1-1) Dominates Trine In 17-5 Win On March 6


Adams State Men's Lacrosse Banner

Thanks to 6-goal offensive explosions in both the first and third quarters, the Adams State University men’s lacrosse team re-wrote the record books in a dominating 17-5 win over visiting Trine University, Wednesday afternoon here in windy conditions at the ASU Lacrosse & Soccer Field.
Led by a school-record setting performance by Josh Peterman (Santa Ana, Calif.) and seven more combined goals by Seth Stowell (Lakeside, Calif.) and Ian Morrison (Menlo Park, Calif.), the Grizzlies improved to 1-1 on the young season while the Thunder, an NCAA Division III squad from Angola, Ind., fell to 0-2.
Peterman, who took 11 shots on the day, had four goals in the first half alone, as the Grizzlies took an 8-1 edge going into the break before putting the game away with another six goals in the third period, allowing second-year head coach John McCreery and his staff to clear the benches. A total of 34 different Grizzlies saw action in what was ASU’s best-ever offensive performance.
In addition to Peterman’s individual goal scoring prowess, which included two fourth-quarter goals, the Grizzlies set a new team scoring record for goals and offensive points (27), bettering the program’s former marks of 15 goals and 20 offensive points set against Shorter (Ga.) on Apr. 17, 2012.
Peterman bested ASU’s former single-game goal-scoring mark of five, done twice by now Grizzly junior Anthony Damico (Littleton, Colo.) in 2012. Peterman’s double hat-trick was also tied for the second best scoring performance in Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association history and was just one off the WILA record.
The Grizzlies also played strong defensively as they set new program marks for caused turnovers (32) and groundballs (67) in a game against the over-matched Thunder, who were just 13-for-27 in clearing attempts.
The Thunder did receive a team-high two goals from Nic Ruby.
Their primary face-off man Rob Brzezinski also had a strong day winning 13 of 17 match-ups at the “X” while scooping up 10 groundballs.
As a team, ASU won just 7 of 25 face-offs, about the only thing they did not do well in the dominating victory, which saw them successfully clear their defensive zone on 25 of 28 tries.
Peterman started the scoring just 1:12 in to the afternoon with an unassisted goal before Brzezinski answered back just 12 seconds later off one of his face-off wins. However, a 1-minute non-releasable penalty on the Thunder allowed Stowell and Peterman to both score man-up goals just 24 seconds apart before Stowell scored again just 17 seconds later, moments after the expiration of the penalty.
