SU SOLIDIFIES SPOT IN PLAYOFFS WITH WIN OVER AC (3/28/04)

After a terrible second half on Saturday against Harding University, SU was treated with a great overnight stay at Om Panchal's parent's house...a truly inspiring experience. Much appreciation from the team and the university goes to the Panchal family for allowing the motley crew that is the SU lacrosse team stay at their house overnight.

With a great night under their belts, the Bucs looked to go 7-1 in conference by beating AC. Most might not remember, but the last time SU played AC, it was on the football stadium at AC and SU was obliterated 14-1. It was the only time SU has ever lost to the Kangaroos, and all the players on the team currently weren't in school at that point.

As rain came down in the warm-ups SU decided to treat the game as an opportunity to practice the things it had not been able to do well the day before.

SU scored first, only to trade goals with a fired up AC for most of the first quarter before the entire starting D was pulled in favor of the bench. With the score tied at 4, the bench came in and sparked a run that did not end until the game did.

By half-time, the Bucs had taken a commanding 9-4 lead, and had controlled most of the game on their offensive side.

The third saw AC score one quick goal before SU notched a few more of its own. By the start of the fourth, starters were out and rookies were in across the board.

Caldwell, Gainey, and Jeffcoat had great games. Jones, continuing every game, notched his first goal of his young career, and the third line played solid the entire day, even when the other lines were sub-par. Both Daulton and Jones are becoming formidable face- off men, along with Arrington.

The game was ten time more physical than the game before. AC should be commended for playing until the very end, and hustling and hitting the entire game regardless of the score.

Kerr, had another silent game in the scorers box (although he tried to break the streak), but had another great game on the field, winning ground balls, doing well in transition and playing solid middie Defense.

Baker came in and played solid at attack, and all the players, including "Irish" Campbell and Adams, played meaningful and solid minutes in the game.

The game was exactly what SU needed as it enters into the biggest game of the year at home next weekend against #9 in the nation, UTA. The game will be in Georgetown this year and we are hoping to get a large crowd out to support the team.

A win coupled with a NSU loss against Tulane gives the regular season title to the Bucs outright, and a number 1 seed in the playoffs. A loss and the field is wide open. SU could drop to a low as the 4th seed.

UTA has been very impressive this year, and will be an uphill battle for Southwestern. We are looking forward to the challenge.
