The Stories That Matter Most To The Utah Lacrosse Community

ULA Boys Juniors Week 5 and Week 6

For Immediate Release – Utah Lacrosse Association
Utah Lacrosse Association5/29/2013 – It has been 2 weeks since my last article and I apologize, but I have some good reasons. Week 5 weather wiped out my games of the week (DI Olympus vs Bonneville and DII Roy vs Bonneville) and week 6 was a short week with no games on Memorial weekend. So I did not have much to write about, but there were some big things that did happen in the lacrosse world outside of the ULA Youth circuit. In Utah news, Juan Diego won its second consecutive DI State Championship by defeating the upstart Lone Peak program 8-4. Waterford avenged last year’s loss in the DII tittle game by defeating another rising program in Syracuse 6-4. On the national scene Duke showed us how important winning face-off’s can be by taking down the other Syracuse 16-10. In college club, BYU made a strong run in MCLA DI but lost to the eventual champions CSU in the semi-finals and Westminster College went to the finals of MCLA DII but just came up short losing to St Thomas 9-7. Congratulations to our State Champions, the college teams we follow, and all the programs across the state. There were many ULA youth graduates on all sides of the fields and it is just a matter of time before we see one on the National stage in the biggest game of all.
Week 5 and Week 6 Scores and Standings
DI – Bonneville over Copper Hills (6-5), Juan Diego over Olympus (8-3), Park City over Copper Hills (14-2), Park City over Bonneville (12-3), Brighton over Park City (9-7), Juan Diego over Herriman (11-4) … Herriman over Bonneville (7-2), Brighton over Herriman (16-2), Juan Diego over Bonneville (11-2), Park City over Davis (15-0), Davis over Copper Hills (6-2).
Juan Diego and Brighton remain undefeated and play on the final game of the season for the #1 seed. The #3 thru #6 seeds are still up for grabs, as nobody has been mathematically eliminated yet.
DII – Brighton over Davis (13-3), Park City over Waterford (8-7), Herriman over Juan Diego (11-1), Jordan over Northridge (10-0), Park City over Roy (5-4), Brighton over Olympus (4-1), Northridge over Waterford (11-10), Park City over Herriman (5-3), Riverton over Juan Diego (15-2), Skyline over Davis (15-4) … Judge/SLC over Bonneville (4-1), Olympus over Riverton (5-4), Roy over Davis (15-4), Jordan over Brighton (8-7), Riverton over Park City (9-3), Judge/SLC over Juan Diego (4-3), Jordan over Olympus (5-1), Skyline over Waterford (9-5), Brighton over Park City (9-8), Skyline over Bonneville (8-3), Roy over Waterford (11-6).
Jordan is the last of the unbeaten and sits firmly on top of the standings. Brighton, Roy, and Skyline all have 1 loss and have secured playoff spots but not seeds. The real battle will be for the #5 and #6 seeds as 6 teams vie for the 2 spots including last years top dogs Park City and Waterford.
DIII – Davis over Park City (13-6), Olympus Gray over Copper Hills Green (6-3), Park City over Brighton (8-3), Herriman over Brighton (4-2), Jordan over Copper Hills White (3-2), Copper Hills Green over Park City (6-5), Olympus Silver over Riverton Purple (8-3) … Olympus Gray over Olympus Silver (4-3), Park City over Copper Hills White (6-4), Jordan over Brighton (8-4), Riverton over Herriman (7-3), Davis over Olympus Silver (5-4), Copper Hills Green over Olympus Black (3-2), Davis over Jordan (9-5).
As usual the DIII division has given us the closest games and match ups all year long and week 5 and 6 were no different. There are no more undefeated teams in the division and from the looks of the standings we have 11 very even teams where any team can win on any given day.
Attention DIII Coaches – The All Star game is scheduled for June 5th. Every team needs to nominate 3 players (at least 1 has to be a long stick) as well as a vote for a goalie from another team. Please email these to me ASAP (jeff@vegasgroupent.com)
