NCAA Lacrosse: Mercyhurst College (PA) Men’s Lacrosse Defeated Adelphi 9-8 On May 29 To Win The “2011 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Div II National Championship”
The third-ranked Mercyhurst College men’s lacrosse team captured its first NCAA National Championship in program history by defeating No. 5 Adelphi, 9-8, Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.
Junior Ian Wild scored four goals, including the game-winner, to earn the game’s most outstanding player award. Sophomore Brian Scheetz scored once and dished out three assists, and junior Kyle Kallay tacked on a pair of goals.
Playing in their second national championship game in program history, the Lakers (14-2) went toe-to-toe with the Panthers at the home stadium of the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens.
Both teams traded three goals aside in the first quarter, with Adelphi beginning the scoring just 22 seconds in. Danny Blau broke the ice when he drove from the right wing and let a shot loose from about five yards out at 13:38. Mercyhurst would answer back shortly after as Wild ran along the top of the box and found the back of the net from dead center to even the slate at the 13:00 mark.
After nearly a five-minute scoring draught, Joe Vitale got the offense going again when he took a pass at the point, drove down the slot and beat senior Zach Nash with a knuckleball that trickled over the line, giving the visitors a 2-1 advantage with 7:17 to play. The lead would be short-lived though as Wild tied the game at two on a play that saw him beat his man from behind the cage before sending a shot over the netminder’s head at 4:21.
The Dominican University of California men’s lacrosse team shook off a slow start on Monday afternoon but was never quite able to catch up to No. 11 nationally-ranked Adelphi University and fell by the final of 17-10.
The Panthers (2-1) built a 4-0 first quarter lead that would serve them the rest of the game. Sophomore middie Jim Little scored the first of his three goals to begin the second quarter but the Penguins (1-4) were still outscored 3-2 in the quarter and were sent into halftime trailing 7-2. The third quarter saw a flurry of scoring from both teams. Junior attackman Reed Upson found redshirt freshman middie Dalton Copeland for a goal to take advantage of a man-up situation. The Penguins refused to call it quits and closed the third period with freshman defender Mason Mooney‘s first career goal despite being a man down. Copeland connected with Upson early in the fourth quarter to pull Dominican to 14-7 and junior defender Ben Wang connected with senior Emmett Faricy to pull the Penguins to within six but that’s as close as they would come.
“I admired the way our guys battled today against a very solid team,” said Dominican Head Coach Ned Webster. “Adelphi shot the ball extremely well, and we simply didn’t. Our sticks need to sharpen up and our faceoff play needs to tighten up if we’re going to beat top ten teams. I’m looking forward to playing this team again.”
Dominican played aggressively and scooped up 56 groundballs compared to Adelphi’s 44.
