Championship Bracket Championship Maverik Elite 16, Merrill Lynch/Lacrossewear 10
The 40th Vail Lacrosse Shootout came to a culmination in an even match between Maverik Elite and Merrill Lynch. Both teams went goal for goal for almost the entire first half, including an impressive longpole goal from Merrill Lynch’s Goran Murray. Despite lightning and nature conspiring against us, the second half of the game showed Maverik Elite pulling ahead with an impressive shooting display from a deeply talented offensive squad. The all-tournament team was named, as well as the Keeper of Lacrosse award, and the 40th annual Vail Men’s Elite came to an impressive close.
