BUCS REMAIN UNDEAFETED IN CONFERENCE PLAY! (2/19/05)
In front of the largest crowd of the year for Parent's Weekend,
The Southwestern Lacrosse team moved to 5-1 and remained
undefeated in conference play, beating the Austin College
The Bucs wasted no time taking control of the game , notching
their first score with just under two minutes gone in the first
quarter off a quick shot by Sr. attackman Matt Gainey, who played
sparingly throughout the day because he was under the weather. He
still managed to provide the team with 4 goals to go along with 4
The game was never in doubt as SU was able to take a 6-1 lead into
the second quarter, including 2 of the three goals Andrew Kerr had
on the day. Kerr also received the game ball for his stellar
play, and willingness and ability to serve our team in many
As the second quarter started, SU continued to expand its lead,
with three of Sr. attackman Frank Makal's five goals coming in the
stanza. By half-time SU held a 10-1 lead.
The third quarter saw SU extend its lead to 16-1 with just over 5
minutes remaining, before AC notched its second goal of the day.
With the game in hand, SU started to allow many of the guys who
have worked hard all year a chance to get some considerable
playing time. Backup goalie, Trey Patten came in with 5 left in
the third and played very well, making a couple of point blank
stops, and stifling a man down along the way.
The entire defense also got in the game either at LSM or in the
box, with Pasty also getting a chance at his dream spot, at crease
As the final whistle blew, SU had defeated AC 21-4. The entire
team managed the game very well, with all four lines spreading the
minutes. The defense once again was solid, and the middies all
did an exceptional job in between the boxes, a place that has been
our downfall against better teams.
Of the 21 goals scored, 11 were off assists, and 16 came from the
four attackmen, including Bryson, who is quickly stepping up his
play and providing us with many different looks on offense. His
four goals and one assist were career highs.
Others getting in the point column were Jeffcoat with 1 goal and 3
assists, Daulton, who again dominated at face-offs, with one
assist, Jones with one assist, and Derek Samples, first year
player with one assist. Derek had to step up into the 2nd line
face-off spot as Arrington was inactive with an injury on the day,
and did exceptionally well, running on both the 2nd and fourth
lines all day.
Others who scored on the day include the entire third line of
Pritchett, Weldon and Panchal, each with one, and D/LSM Gette, who
has managed a goal or assist in 4 of 6 games this year.
The entire team played physical and controlled the tempo. Winters
is turning into a very good LSM, and the long poles are helping
Jake, get our season off to its best start in over 12 years.
Next week, the Bucs travel down to San Antonio to take on the UTSA
Roadrunners, an LSA Div. B South team, before heading back home to
Georgetown the following week to meet TSU, a very strong contender
for a playoff spot in Div. A.
We would like to thank all the fans and parents who braved the
weather to come out and watch the Bucs play on Saturday. We
appreciate the support as we continue our march to the playoffs in
