College Crosse Recap.

The Titans made a game of it early on as they stayed with Michigan through the 1st half. Indeed, the Titans actually had a 3-2 lead after the first quarter and were tied at 5 with Michigan going into intermission.

However, BOSS Paul of the Wolverines must’ve given an amazing halftime speech or something, as the Wolverines came out on fire in the 3rd quarter; Michigan dropped 7 goals on the Titans in the 3rd, as part of an 11-0 run that stretched from 3:04 in the 2nd quarter to 8:00 in the 4th quarter.

Michigan’s Ian King and Brent Noseworthy were great today for the Wolverines. Ian led UM in scoring with 5 points (4 Gs & 1 A) and Brent was right behind him with 4 points (4 Gs). Mike McDonnell also had a big day for the lads from Ann Arbor as he won 16 of 24 faceoffs on the night (Michigan was 20 for 29 total on the evening). Additionally, Michigan outworked the Titans on loose balls, as the Wolverines finished with 38-22 advantage over the Titans on GBs.

Despite the dominant 11-0 run by Michigan, the Titans played hard until the final whistle. Detroit scored the last 5 goals of the game to close the gap but ran out of time before they could get it any closer than 15-10. Sean Birney was the only Titans player to finish with multiple goals tonight (2 Gs). Additionally, Matthew Vangalen continued his strong play this season for Detroit as he finished with 4 points on the night (1 G & 3 As).
