The Stories That Matter Most To The Utah Lacrosse Community

2015 Boise Invitational Preview

Boise Invitational LogoThe annual Boise Invitational is this weekend and will see six Utah teams heading North to take on some of the best teams in the West. Let’s look at what the weekend will hold for each team:
Corner Canyon Chargers
Corner Canyon will face a tough slate. Their first game (Thursday) is against Eastside Catholic from Washington. The Crusaders were semifinalists last year but are ranked in the Top 10 in the West region by Lacrosse Magazine. This will be the first game of the season for Eastside Catholic who are anchored by Denver commit Josh Matte. The Chargers will then face Fort Collins from Colorado. The Vipers will be looking to rebound from a 13-4 loss to Cherry Creek last week. Corner Canyon will finish with Palo Verde (NV). The Panthers are no stranger to Utah teams having played several each year. This is one of the top games of the weekend.
Herriman Mustangs
The Mustangs will face Centennial (NV), Mountain View (ID) and Rocky Mountain (ID). Centennial is a gritty team from Las Vegas who have a reputation for winning games. Mountain View is the defending back-to-back Idaho state champion and are always a tough team. Rocky Mountain is a program on the rise and should be a good test for Herriman.
Juan Diego Soaring Eagle
Juan Diego provided one of the most memorable games from last year at the 2014 Boise Invitational when they came from behind to beat Mountain View in OT. The Soaring Eagle will once again hope for magic in Boise when they face Eagle (ID), Faith Lutheran (NV) and Eastside Catholic (WA).
Judge Bulldogs
The Bulldogs are coming off a win over rival Juan Diego on Monday and a loss to Highland on Wednesday so consistency will be key for Judge in Boise. They will face Boise (ID), Centennial (ID) and Hellgate (MT). Hellgate is the 2014 Montana state champion and will be a tough test for Judge.
Olympus Titans
Olympus will face Rocky Mountain (ID), Canby (OR), Central Catholic (OR) and Timberline (ID). Central Catholic is one of the top teams in the event and will challenge the Titans.
Park City Miners
The Miners will face Eagle (ID), Central Catholic (OR), Lake Oswego (OR) and Timberline (ID). It will be a great chance for the Miners to prove they are one of the top teams in the region with great competition.
