Thanks to Mr. Spoonmore!
We finished our season at home on Sunday, and although Michigan State backed out for fear of predicted thunderstorms we were able to keep our game against Loyola Chicago. We came away with our seventh win to close out the season, and we will enter the championship tournament in Madison in two weeks at the top of the league.
Defeated Loyola Chicago 13-3
After a full day of travel and lacrosse on Saturday, our team has come away with another three wins! We are now at the top of the GLLL as one of only a few undefeated teams, and our rivals Marquette and UW-Madison Red each have one loss.
Defeated Northwestern University 10-5
Defeated Holy Cross College 9-0
Defeated Northern Illinois University 11-0
We managed to sweep our first weekend of games on a cold Saturday in South Bend, putting us in a great position going forward.
Our first win against Marquette, likely our biggest challenge of the season, came after a critical two goal comeback in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter. This effort put us into overtime, where a sloppy pass on the part of Marquette gave us a fast break opportunity that resulted in the winning goal.
Marquette game: 5-4 OT win
Our wins against Michigan State and School Craft were more decisive:
MSU game: 12-3 win
School Craft game: 11-4 win
