|The High School Boys U-19 tournament saw some great
plays and even better teamwork during the first day of games.
In the most competitive game of the day the Baltimore Crabs found
themselves well matched with Team Arizona. Baltimore led most of
the way, but Arizona fought hard and kept it close the whole time.
Both teams benefited from solid goaltending, but Arizona had trouble
limiting Baltimore's talented offense. Baltimore pulled out the
victory 9-7 on the strength of their talented attack duo of Reed
and Hessler. They combined for nine points in the game, and sixteen
points on the day. With the Crabs morning victory over Midwest Elite
14-1, Baltimore again find themselves in the Division I bracket.
The Crabs draw the 3:00pm game against Team Idaho, who will be making
their first Division I appearance.
Delaware won both their games today, and displayed a powerful offense
along the way. In their first game Delaware defeated Team Indiana
14-6 on the back of an eight point performance by Kyle Wharton (7g,1a).
In their second game against Idaho, Delaware trailed 0-1 early but
came back to dominate the game en route to a 15-4 victory. Delaware
will be playing Arizona at 1:00pm in what should prove to be one
of the most competitive games during the first day of Divisional
The perennially solid team from Ohio was in fine form today as
they limited their opponents to three goals total in their two games.
Team Ohio beat both Sacramento Elite and Triad Lacrosse Club by
scores of 16-2 and 9-1, respectively. Ohio will face the Winnipeg
Wolverines at 9:00am in the first game of the day for Division I.
Team Colorado was also dominant during pool play winning both their
first round games by comfortable margins. Colorado showed plenty
of offensive firepower finishing with 33 goals, more than any other
team during the first day. Controlling both games Colorado downed
Winnipeg in their first game 16-6 and in their second game beat
FLC 17-1. Rounding out the Division I bracket Colorado will play
Triad Lacrosse Club at 11:00am.
