UMD 8, BYU 4 (Fri. 3/21) FINAL

Postby LacrosseHub on Tue Mar 18, 2008 12:54 pm

#4 BYU (4-3) is coming off of a solid win against ASU. #7 Minnesota-Duluth (2-2) is looking to get back on track after two tough losses against Michigan and CSU.
Game Notes:

BYU will rely on another strong performance by attackmen, Heir and Manning. These shifty players combined for 13 points in the game against ASU. Their ability to dodge and finish make up for BYU's general inexperience on the offensive midfield. If Minnesota-Duluth can limit Manning and Heir's ability to create early slides and keep a stick on their hands, they can be slowed down. Also, M-D's goalie, Jake Launert, will have to make more saves than he did v. Michigan and CSU.

BYU will have to work hard between the boxes to control the tempo of the game. BYU gained many valuable possessions by winning 22-33 face-offs against ASU. FO Midfielder, Neil Watterson won 16-22 face-offs was dominant. His control along with strong wing play of BYU's LSMs will be very important to keep the ball away from M-D's offense. M-D has had much success throughout the season by holding the ball on offense for long possessions.

BYU's goalie, Kikumoto, will have to make saves and clear the ball effectively. BYU had many fastbreak and unsettled opportunities because their D-midfielders and LSMs pushed the ball up the field against ASU. These opportunities lead to easy goals for the attack. M-D's attack and midfielders did a great job riding and caused numerous clearing mistakes against Michigan and CSU. This is a way for M-D to capitalize on the sloppiness exhibited by BYU's young defenders against ASU.

M-D will have to do a better job when the ball is on the ground. M-D lost the groundball war against Michigan, 19-34. They need their players on either side of the field to hustle and get the ball off the ground.

M-D's offense has a great opportunity against a BYU defense that graduated two starters from last year's team. BYU's defense has had difficulty slowing down opposing offenses (evident in giving up 15 v ASU, 15 v Whittier, 16 v Chapman, 12 v Michigan, 11 v Simon Fraser) If M-D's offensive leaders (Nelson, Pitzl, Hochman) can match the efforts of ASU's Westfalls, BYU will be in for a long game. Throughout BYU's game v ASU, their defenseman were getting beat one on one without much help from slides. This was evident in the 4Q, when one of the Westfalls toasted Pat Matheson behind the net and scored without being touched.

Disclaimer: On average, BYU's defense lets up 12 goals per game. That will not make Kikumoto's All-American campaign any easier.

I bet this guy hasn't seen either team play this year (if ever). Looks like he is going straight off game reports, what a joker. And for that matter, what is lacrossehub?

Lacrosse hub looks like a new website that has got news about everything. It is owned by someone in Salt Lake City. The website was started on Feb 8th of this year. I personally enjoyed this first post.

Thank you for your responses. I grew up on Long Island and recently graduated from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I was a 4 year letterman and Captain. I moved out to Utah in the fall and have been involved with youth programs in the Salt Lake City area.

I attend as many Westminster, University of Utah, and BYU games as possible. Usually a game or two a week.

The lacrosse site is a side project where I can keep up to date with news and write game notes about teams I enjoy following. Please check back, I just got it up and running on the 15th. So look forward to more articles about club lacrosse.

Thanks, LacrosseHub

PS If you would like to introduce yourself, I will be wearing a Wesleyan lacrosse hat at the game Friday night. Good luck to both teams!

the only prediction that I have is that the game will be played in much nicer weather than what we have here in the Twin Cities right now....

Snow, about 5 inches in my area right now and they are expecting it to get to 8 inches by the time we head to go watch the game....

So my prediction for snow on the ground in MN at face off is 7.5 inches, Provo - 0 (hopefully) :lol: :lol:
