MCLA Lacrosse Games: Arizona At #19 Simon Fraser, #9 Chapman At #2 Arizona State, #5 Colorado Vs #8 Oregon, #7 UC Santa Barbara Vs #1 Colorado State, #16 Boston College At #15 Texas and #17 Sonoma State At #12 Cal Berkeley
Arizona (1-2) at No. 19 Simon Fraser (4-1) - Friday, 1 p.m. PT
COYNE: They’re a little raw right now, but the Wildcats will be a handful in the SLC postseason when they have a little more experience. Much respect for making the trip to Burnaby, but the Clansmen will be a bit too much. SFU, 15-10.
SCHOOLER: Neither team has looked very good this season. All Simon Fraser has to brag about is a close loss to Oregon in a game where both teams played sloppily. But I don’t see Arizona winning this game. The Clan wins at home 9-6.
No. 9 Chapman (-2) at No. 2 Arizona State (4-0) - Friday, 7 p.m. MT
COYNE: If it doesn’t figure things out quickly, Chapman could conceivably be a seven-loss team in the regular season. Alas, Arizona State is an underwhelming team in relation to its ranking. Devils barely, 8-6.
SCHOOLER: Chapman has had a rough start, but they seemed to bounce back against UNLV. This is a toss up in my mind, but I don’t see the Panthers winning this on the road. ASU, 11-10. Possibly overtime.
No. 5 Colorado (2-0) vs. No. 8 Oregon (4-1) - Saturday, 1 p.m. MT (at Boise)
COYNE: Oregon enters this game with the advantage of having Colorado play the night before against Boise State and having played tougher competition so far this spring. Will that be enough? I think it might be. Ducks, 10-9.
SCHOOLER: Colorado is the most intriguing team since I graduated. You never know what to expect with them. So I am going out on a limb here and picking the Buffs, 10-9.
No. 7 UC Santa Barbara (3-1) vs. No. 1 Colorado State (2-0) - Saturday, 1 p.m. PT (at Las Vegas)
COYNE: UNLV is no pushover, and the Gauchos have to play the Rebels the night before CSU. UC Santa Barbara was a long shot to upset the Rams anyway, and the schedule just made it even longer. Colorado State, 10-6.
SCHOOLER: Gauchos win 12-9 and take the No. 1 seed. Boo-ya!
No. 16 Boston College (2-0) at No. 15 Texas (6-0) - Monday, 7 p.m. CT
COYNE: The Longhorns are staring at games against UCSB and Sonoma next week, so this should be a nice tune-up. Boston College will be playing its third game in four days, which can’t be downplayed. Texas gets a signature win, 12-9.
SCHOOLER: Boston College had a great season opener signature win against FSU, but from what we have learned, that Seminole team was not riding the success of past seasons. I hate to pick Texas, but I don’t see any other outcome. ‘Horns, 10-6.
No. 17 Sonoma State (1-0) at No. 12 California (3-2) - Saturday, 7 p.m. PT
SCHOOLER: What have you done for me lately? For Sonoma, that’s nothing. For the Bears, they played a great game against my Gauchos and Northeastern. For that, I have Berkeley winning, 10-7.
COYNE: This is a very important WCLL match-up and it comes at a point of the season that definitely favors the Golden Bears, who have played some of the best teams in the country already. The fact that the Seawolves are playing in Berkeley makes it more difficult for ‘Noma. Cal, 12-10.
MCLA Lacrosse: Colorado State Men’s Lacrosse Defeated Boston College 14-9 To Advance To The “2011 Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association Championships” Semifinal Against BYU On May 20
The Rams led 6-5 at halftime before going on their decisive run in the third on their way to a 14-9 victory. CSU was led by sophomore attackman Austin Fisher’s four goal performance and a balanced effort from a midfield that put pressure on the Eagles all game long.
With a one-goal lead at halftime, Colorado State blitzed the Eagles in the third, scoring three goals in the span of 2:14 to push the lead to four. Midfielders Greyson Konkel, Tim Taggart and Spencer Morrison all got in the act as the Rams started to take over the game. After some back and forth play in the middle portion of the quarter, CSU went on another three goal run, this time scoring goals in just 1:47 of game-time to put the game out of reach.
“That was one of the better defenses we’ve seen this year,” said CSU coach Alex Smith. “They made us work for everything, but the offense was just having a great day. I thought Austin Fisher just played outstanding. When he is going at that level, other teams can’t just focus on Cooper (Kehoe) and we are a tough team to stop.”
Fisher’s four-goal performance comes on the heels of a three-goal first round game against Minnesota-Duluth on Tuesday afternoon and is his best scoring output since tallying six goals against Lindenwood back in March. CSU also got three points from Kehoe on one goal and two assists and two goals each from Garrett Fugier, Taggart and Konkel.
Boston College came into the game after a dominating game at the face-off ‘x’ against Colorado in the first round, but Scott Gelston and Dan Warfield turned in an impressive day on draws, going a combined 15/26 against BC’s impressive long pole Justin Katchis. BC also had a balanced day scoring with six players notching at least two points. Midfielder Alexander Prostano led the way with two goals and an assist.
CSU advances to the MCLA semifinals for the first time since 2007 with the win and will play the rubber match against RMLC rival #3 Brigham Young on Friday afternoon at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park Stadium. The Rams and Cougars split 8-5 wins already this year with BYU winning in the regular season and CSU taking the RMLC championship game in Grand Junction two weekends ago.

The road it took to get there, however, was not an easy one as the team came out a little sluggish in the first game of the tournament against Utah. CSU’s flat performance in the first half only had them up 5-2 before exploding to a 15-7 victory.
Head coach Alex Smith was not pleased with what he saw from his team, even though the win looked easy on paper.
“I did not think we played very good against Utah because we didn’t have a lot of energy,” Smith said. “It definitely wasn’t the type of game we would need to beat BYU, because they’re so much of a better team.”
Some of the adjustments had to come from a focus stand point, said senior co-captain Andrew Stein.
“Just as a team, as whole, we were a little slow in the first half especially,” Stein said. “I think a little bit of it was we looked past them more than we should have. We didn’t game plan for them as much as the other two teams, CU and BYU.”
The championship game between the Rams and BYU was the second meeting of the teams in as many weeks.
Once more, the Rams played a hard-fought first half, trailing 7-6, and had to make changes on the defensive end of the field. The changes worked to perfection, allowing only three goals the second half. The victory was only the second time CSU had bested BYU since 2006.
Much of the credit for the turnaround in the second half against Utah and into the BYU game can be attributed to junior Cooper Kehoe, the RMLC’s Offensive Player of the Year.
Kehoe continued his regular season dominance into the conference tournament, turning in a six-point effort against Utah with three goals and three assists. He followed it up with another spectacular performance in the championship game, racking up eight more points on two goals and six assists.
“(Cooper) is kind of the heart and soul of our team and plays that hard every day,” Smith said. “He doesn’t have an ego, he is a team guy and he’s a real pleasure to coach.”
Kehoe understands that he is important to his team’s success but remains humble and eager to help the team keep winning.
“It was cool, but I couldn’t have done it without everyone else, and it was just nice to dish out the love to everyone,” Kehoe said. “I feel like our whole team went really deep and a lot of guys got to drop some points.”
The championship is special to all the players and coaches, but for the seniors it’s just a bit sweeter.
“BYU always has a great program and gives their best, so it was really nice to get a championship under my belt (against BYU),” Stein said. “I’ve faced them about six or eight times before that without winning. It feels good –– really satisfying.”
With a conference title to their name, the Rams can take it all in and use the experience for the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association National Tournament in Denver.
“Oh it’s great. I haven’t had this experience yet, I mean I hadn’t beat BYU since I was first here,” Kehoe said. “It shows that we can play with anybody and I think it will help us later along the road.”
University Of Colorado Men’s Lacrosse, Colorado State, University Of Montana And Texas A&M Men’s Lacrosse To Play This Weekend; Both Colorado Teams Are Coming Off Tough Victories Over #7 Boston College
Colorado, Texas A&M and Colorado State, all of whom are ranked in the top 15 in the country, and a short-benched University Of Montana team can’t afford to be tired.
“Three games can take a lot out of a team,” coach Ryan Hanavan said. “We’ve been doing a lot of conditioning to get their legs underneath them for all three games.”
Colorado State Rams lacrosse as they face 14th ranked Texas A&M Aggies and conference rival Montana Grizzlies. They will play the Aggies at 4pm at Loveland Sports Park on Friday, March 6th, and the Grizzlies at 1pm at the University of Northern Colorado campus on Sunday, March 8th.
#10 Colorado Buffaloes beat the #7 Boston College Eagles 9-8 in a double overtime, thriller of a season opener.
Colorado State held the lead much of the game, but Boston College tied the game up three times, but the Rams demonstrated why they were the better team on the day after recapturing the lead each time. With the score a one-point difference in favor of the Rams late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles gave them a run for their money as they were fighting to tie the game a fourth time before the clock ran out, but Kehoe put the game away with 21 seconds left to put the Rams up by a final score of 10-8.
After a tough upset loss last weekend to #9 Cal Poly Mustangs, Colorado State came out playing with a desire to win. It was evident they learned their lesson in the loss. They had a very good week of practices, and were back to playing intense and physical lacrosse against Boston College.
