Michigan lacrosse loses Big House opener and more Saturday results
This roundup was updated with Saturday evening results.
The first game in the Big House was a big disappointment for the Michigan lacrosse team.
The Wolverines couldn't carry the momentum of an early 3-0 lead and lost 13-9 to Bellermine at Michigan Stadium on Saturday. It was the first home game at the iconic stadium for Michigan, which is 0-2 inside Oosterbaan Field House.
Bellarmine (3-2) scored five straight goals to wipe out the early Michigan (1-7) advantage and took a 6-5 lead into halftime. The Knights took control of the game with two goals in a 6 second span of the third period, including one by goalie Dillon Ward from 70 yards.
"This one was disappointing. I felt going into halftime if we cleaned a couple things up, and moved the ball a little better offensively, we were going to be in pretty good shape in the second half," Michigan coach John Paul told MGoBlue.com.
"I thought offensively and in the clear, we did both those things, and we kept hitting the pipes -- we hit a lot of pipes. We lost Emil (Weiss) in the fourth quarter, and asking Dylan (Westerhold) to come in cold like that -- he obviously wasn't ready to come in. They scored a couple quick ones right away and it was pretty tough to overcome."
Trevor Yealy, Thomas Paras and Will Meter each scored two goals for Michigan. Bellarmine's Lance Robinson had three goals.
