The University of Denver Men’s Lacrosse team played the Canadian National Lacrosse Team today at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. The Canadians emerged victorious, 15-13 thanks in large part to a 9-0 run that spanned the second and third quarters.
Trevor Baptiste left the game with a minor injury early and didn’t return to the game as a precaution. As a result, Canada was able to dominate the faceoff X and keep the Pioneers from doing much of anything offensively.
In the second half, the Pios were able to pull back within 1 on multiple occasions, but the back-and-forth affair ended up falling in favor of the Canadian National team.
Coach Tierney was pleased with what he saw and feels that they will be able to take today’s result and keep growing and getting better by the time the regular season starts in 2017.
