Beasts of the day:
- Lehigh. There are no moral victories in lacrosse, but if there were, Lehigh's near comeback would certainly be one. Down 11-5 with a little over 5 minutes left in the 3rd, Lehigh never gave up and made it quite interesting with 2 separate 3 goal runs, before ultimately losing 13-11 to the Blue Devils. Special shout out to the Mountain Hawks defense for holding Myles Jones to only 1 first quarter goal and no assists in a great one down in Durham.
- Gerald Logan, Michigan. The Wolverines needed every one of Gerald's 15 saves in a close 1 point game against Colgate. This is probably Michigan's best win in the young program's history, as many considered Colgate a top 20 team going into today's game. Michigan's offense was limited to only 2 second half goals, but luckily for the Wolverines, Logan was there to pick up the slack with 10 of 15 saves coming in the the 3rd and 4th quarter.
- Jarett Witzal, Bucknell. The Bison's top face-off man had a great day. Witzal won 10 out of 15 at the dot and was a key part to Bucknell jumping out to a 7-4 halftime lead.
- Jack Bruckner's Willis Reed moment, (Duke). Jack was a true beast today. Bruckner went down with what looked like a gruesome injury early in the 4th and had to be assisted off the field and into the training room. But you can't keep a Belle Terre, New Yorker down for long. Jack somehow got back onto the field a few minutes later to bag his only goal of the day to extend Duke's lead to 2 with 5:48 to go in the game.
- Tucker James, Bucknell. James had a great afternoon finishing with 3 points (1 goal & 2 assists) and scooping up 3 GBs. Tucker's 4th quarter assist to Tom Kennedy (who also had 3 points, 2 Gs & 1 A) was crucial as it helped to stunt Bryant's 4th quarter run. The Bulldogs outscored the Bison 5 to 1 in the 4th and were it not for the Tucker to Kennedy connection, this game very well may have gone into OT.
- Kyle Jackson, Michigan. Kyle had a great game in his home opener, finishing with 4 tallies on the day. Indeed, Kyle was Michigan's only source of offense in the 3rd and 4th, as he scored an unassisted goal in each quarter to help Michigan skate away with a tight 1 goal win over the Raiders.
- Tristan Rai, Lehigh. Tristan had another big game today, bagging 4 goals on the afternoon (on only 5 shots). Rai helped to keep the Mountain Hawks in the game with 2 goals in 4th quarter, the last of which cut Duke's lead to 2 with 25 seconds left to play.
- Case Matheis, Duke. The Duke senior was instrumental in Duke's impressive win today. On a day when Myles was held to only one point, the Darien, CT native busted out with a hat-trick to help Duke win a close one against Lehigh. Matheis' hat-trick was the 13th of his career.
- Chris Daly, Monmouth. The junior out of Lower Merion High School (Ed. Note: Kobe's high school) had a big day for the Hawks. Chris went home with a hat-trick to lead Monmouth to an 11-5 win over the Dolphins.
