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 Kangaroos 21-4.

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 assists.

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 different functions.

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 attack.

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 Waco.
