Men's Lacrosse Falls 10-6 in WHAC Championship against Indiana Tech

 

FORT WAYNE, Mich. – The Lawrence Technological University men's lacrosse team fell in the WHAC championships against Indiana Institute of Technology 10-6 despite a second half surge.

Four Blue Devils added to the scoring, but it wasn't enough to overcome the NO. 3 Warriors in the championship. Damian Hudson and Jacob Flood each had two goals while Justin Light and Brendan Oles had one. Hudson and Aidan Nolan each had one assist in the Blue Devils six's goals. Joel Trent stopped 19 shots by the Warriors, keeping his team within reach.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Blue Devils hurt themselves with 29 turnovers compared to the 16 made by the Warriors throughout.  Also, a second quarter shut out posted by Indiana Tech, who also grabbed three goals in the second quarter alone was enough to put Lawrence Tech down.

The Blue Devils opened the game with a goal from Oles, but a three goal run before the Blue Devils found the net again, this time from Flood, had Lawrence Tech down by one, yet, Trent kept the team close with six saves.  Then, the Warriors went on to score three in the second quarter to close the half up 6-2, despite another five saves.

Then another Indiana Tech goal occurred to open the third, following a six minute stall. Hudson responded only moments later, which then led to another quiet three minutes from both teams. Hudson scored with under three minutes of the quarter to go before Indiana Tech capitalized on a man up opportunity with 30 seconds to go in the third. Trent had another good quarter stopping five shots.

Indiana Tech opened the fourth and final quarter up 10-4 with another goal in the last ten minutes of the game. While the Blue Devils tried to pull things together with a goal from Light and Flood, the Blue Devils fell 10-6.
