After the quarterfinal games on Friday the semifinals on Saturday have been set. In the quarterfinals we saw some great lacrosse from all four teams competing. Even though it may have been a little chalky, as expected, we did see some great lacrosse. The first game of the day was more so a blowout, but the second game was a very good contest.
The Badgers fins them selves back in the semifinals after a huge win over Nipissing on Friday night. Brock got out to an early 6-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. They were rolling on all cylinders for the majority of the game. Nipissing was able to get later on in the second quarter, but they just didn’t have it in them to make a comeback. Brock dominated and they got the win.
Brock was led by Cooper Brown, Campbell Parker, and Grayson Houghton. All three would have 4 points for the Badgers in the win. Sam Rooney would lead Nipissing with 2 points. The Lakers had a whole host of others that put up one point for them.
In this game we would see a much closer one, especially in the second half. McGill would dominate the first half on both sides of the ball as they came into halftime with a 7-1 lead. Toronto switched the flip in the third as they put up four goals to McGill’s two, thus making it a four point game. In the final quarter of play McGill score one early and about midway through the quarter. Toronto would try to spark a late comeback but was unable to do so as McGill secure the win and a spot in the semifinals.
McGill would be led by Liam MacDonald, Maxime Murdoch, and others. MacDonald ended the day with 3 points as Murdoch out up 2 in the win. Turner Patrick and Seth Obaida also contributed 2 points a piece. Toronto was led by Andre Masson, Nick Pison, and Alex Emerson. All three would have 2 points on the day. Jason Barnable also contributed as well.
