2013 Vail Lacrosse Shootout – Day 3

2013 Vail Lacrosse Shootout – Day 3

The third day of the 41st Vail Lacrosse Shootout saw the tournament’s first champion crowned. The Eldest Statesmen became five-time Grandmasters champions with a 12-4 victory over Middlebury. In the Supermasters division, for the third straight year the Elder Statesmen will faceoff against the C2C Magic Wands. The teams have split the last two years with the Statesmen winning in 2012 and the Wands taking it all in 2011.

The high school divisions saw the best teams rise to the top on day 2 of the U-19 Showcases. On the boy’s side 2012 champion FCA returns to the final-four as does Laxachusetts. Joining them will be the Adrenalin Jr. Tropics and Baltimore Crabs, dangerous as ever, who come back to the tournament after a one year hiatus. In the U-19 Girl’s division, pool play wrapped up, last year’s winner Team HLA went undefeated in the round-robin and will look to repeat as Gold Division champs.

Results for Monday 7/1
Grandmasters (50+)
Championship: 8:30am - Ford West - Eldest Statesmen 12, Middlebury 4
Despite the game getting off to a slow start, Eldest Statesmen clearly dominated all aspects of this contest. Ken Mahaney, goalie for Middlebury, had some impressive saves. Unfortunately for the @middlax squad, they were no match for the favored and now 5-time champion Eldest Statesmen. Sean Fox led the Statesmen with three points on two goals and one assist.

3rd Place Game: 8:30am - Ford East - Los Viejos 9, Tombstone 8 (OT)
Paul Mosey had four goals and the game winner in OT. Rocco Gugliecmo helped give the Los Viejos possessions winning 80% of faceoffs in the second half. It was a disappointing loss for Tombstone goalie Chris Harkins who was stellar in goal and finished with 15 saves.

Chris was given the US Lacrosse - Keeper of Lacrosse Award for the Grandmasters division. This game was Chris’s last game as he plans to donate a kidney to his sister next week. The integrity and commitment that Chris displays on and off the field made it an easy choice as to who this year’s Keeper of Lacrosse would be.

Championship Bracket
Semifinal: 12:30pm – Ford West – C2C Magic Wands 9, Princeton BCLF 4
C2C Magic Wands started with a strong first half, helped by four goals from #3 Jim Loffredo. Princeton tried to get back in the game during the third quarter with good possessions and strong play from their goalie. Despite the improvement from Princeton, they simply could not find the back of the net enough. Wands closed out the game by only allowing one shot on goal in the 4th quarter.
Semifinal: 2:30pm – Ford West – Elder Statesmen 14, Yellow Dog 3
In a game that was close early, the Elder Statesmen started with a 3-2 lead after the first quarter, grew it to a 6-3 margin by halftime, and then didn’t allow another goal. For the third conductive year the Statesmen will take on the Wands in the Championship game.
