Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Rain hit the Vail Lacrosse Shootout on Friday afternoon, delaying men’s and women’s games alike.

The men’s side established its semifinal teams at the end of a long day as Last Call, Merrill Lynch/Lacrossewear, Lacrossewear’s Jammin’ Salmon and Team 21 made it through to today’s semifinals at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Ford Park.

The women completed pool play and have both the quarterfinals and semifinals today. Gang Green and CRSlax.com continue to lead the pack there.

Men’s Elite

Friday morning’s quarterfinal games saw Last Call take down the Collared Greens, 11-6, in the early game and Merrill Lynch/Lacrossewear defeat Brine Elite, 11-7, in the second affair.

Team 21 led the Rocky Mountain Oysters by four with a couple minutes remaining before the rains hit. Team 21 held on to win 9-7 and give the Big Red another shot at a repeat championship at the Shootout.

Today’s semifinals feature four teams who have been here before. The Jammin’ Salmon haven’t won since 2004, while 2005’s champs, Last Call, will take on Team 21. The only team that hasn’t won before is Merrill Lynch, which has been close for the past couple of years.
