After a great performance that barely came up short on Saturday against the Texas State Bobcats, the Bucs returned home to face conference opponent Austin College.

Austin College is always a very scrappy team that simply was outnumbered. It did not keep them from playing a strong game the entire day however.

Freshman goalie, James McDonough got his first collegiate start at goal and was able to hand Southwestern only its third shutout in the 23+ year history of Southwestern Lacrosse.

Southwestern found its offensive rhythm and was able to take command early and never look back, scoring a total of 14 points in the first half. Austin College asked for the third to be played running time and the Bucs agreed.

Of the 19 goals, 12 were assisted. Many players who have worked and practiced hard since stepping foot on the campus for the team were able to record firsts. For instance, Robert Lockwood, a sophomore who has really stepped up his game notched two points on the day, one goal and one assist. Both were the first of the year and his career at SU, and well deserved.

Senior Eric Baker, attackman, journeyman, former club President, and anything else we have needed him to be, not to mention Donut aficionado, was able to play most of the game and score the first goal of his career. He also received the game ball for all that he brings to the team both on and off the field. While he often does not go noticed with stats, etc. he provides the team with invaluable support day in and day out. We will be sad to see him leave at the end of this year.

All the usual suspects played solid games, and the scoring was spread out evenly throughout the day. Many newcomers were able to get considerable playing time and play well. Seth Boese from Wyoming had some solid minutes, as did Jon Michael, Nick Alter, Chris Kaufmann and Heath Thompson, who had two goals called off.

It was a game that allowed all 33 players to get some solid playing time and help us get prepared for the biggest game of the year next weekend. Southwestern makes the short drive down to undefeated St. Ed's in Austin for an early leg up on playoff standings. St. Ed's has played exceptionally well and has been the only loss the Bucs have suffered since last year, a game at the A&M tournament this past Fall.

We encourage ALL fans to come out and support us as we will need to play a great game in order to come away with a win, one we want to carry us into the long Spring Break before taking on Trinity.
