Men’s elite

Championship bracket quarterfinals

Big Green Herd 11, Denver City Lax / StyLax 5

Big Green Herd jumped out to an early 3-1 Lead and City Lax never managed to really get going. City Lax suffered from poor shooting accuracy and a few too many turnovers. The Herd played a very unselfish brand of lacrosse with eight different goal scorers.

Brine Elite 16, Millennium Lacrosse 15

It was a nail biter from start to finish. Brine Elite’s Ryan Danehy scored a 2-point goal with four minutes left to steal the game for Brine. Bailey Tills was a bright spot for Millennium with five goals.

Lacrossewear 16, Adrenaline Tropics 8

A close and hard fought game until the second half, Lacrossewear only allowed one second half goal en route to the win. Lacrossewear’s faceoff man Kevin Massa went 21-for-25, giving Lacrossewear the majority of possessions. A 2-point goal from Ryan Tucker solidified the second-half rally from Lacrossewear. Kieran McArdle led the scoring with three goals and one assist.

All Out 15, Rocky Mountain Oysters 12

The teams battled hard in this close game. The Oysters took a 9-8 lead into half time, but All Out locked down its defense in the third quarter not allowing a goal. All Out won 20-of-30 faceoffs and cleared with great efficiency converting on all but six attempts on the day.

It was a close game until the bitter end when Collin Knowles from the Oysters scored the game winner with 0:29 left.
