Utah 10, New Jersey 9
Game Summary: In the most evenly contested game of the tournament to date, Team Utah came up with what most people believe to be an upset over a powerful New Jersey. Team Utah relied on a powerful performance from Fernandez with four goals, while New Jersey had great performances from Cosello and Murphy, each with 4 points. In the end it was clutch missed shots and extraneous penalties that may have cost New Jersey the game.
Colorado 14, DC 9
Game Summary: In one of the most intense games to be played in the tournament yet, Colorado emerges victorious over a very disappointed DC team. A sloppy 12 penalty game for DC opened the door for 4 extra man goals for Colorado. The scrappy play of Anderson and Morgan led Colorado with a combined 8 goals and 5 assists. Solid defense held Colorado together as they defeated the confident DC team.
Ohio 10, Gateway 4
Outgunned at every position, the Missouri team played aggressively until the end, but it was not enough to push them to a win. Solid defense and team play were the keys to Ohio's victory as they constantly denied the Gateway offense. Carrying the Gateway team once again was Ries with three of the four goals for the overestimated Missouri team.
New England 10, Minnesota 5
Despite their hustle and aggressive play, the Minnesota team was simply overpowered by the tremendous firepower of the New England attack. Barker led this solid New England offense with 6 goals, followed only by Casestao with 2 assists. Wilcox controlled the center of the field and led the New England team with six steals in this one sided contest.
Calgary 19, Virginia 7
Both teams started out equally with a close game at 5-4, Calgary. After the first, Calgary jumped ahead and stayed ahead, leaving Virginia scoring very little. Leading scorers for Calgary were attackmen Sanders with 4 goals and Cys who followed with 3 goals and 2 assists. Virginia was led from midfield by White with 3 goals and Miginsky with 2 goals and 1 assist.
San Diego 13, Delaware 9
Close game until second half, 5-5 tie at the half. Delaware came out slow and let Sand Diego get a lead and were playing catch-up for the remainder of the game. Livadas, Moeckel, and Rodriguez each helped the Delaware cause with 2 goals. San Diego had Roshon lead with 5 goals and Williams followed closely with 4 goals.
Calgary 13, Southeast 9
Calgary dominated this game riding hard, crashing any rebounds and moving the ball on offense with ease. Southeast could not collect on several shot attempts, missing the cage often. Frustration got the best of the home team, limiting their second half production. Standout players for Calgary were Foss and Johnson, while Freeman led the way for Southeast with 3 goals.
These are all the games we have received summaries for, hopefully more to come.
