It has been a season full of annoying illnesses and injuries for Will Hersman, who sat out today game with a tight knee. Depth and resting star players in any capacity is a huge theme in this tournament as John Michael Coon carried the heavy lifting for the Tommies, tallying a hattrick against the Blue Demons, who made their first appearance at Nationals this year.

I not sure which is becoming a more popular tradition: Martin Classic rematches in the MCLA Tournament or overtime games with the Panthers and Ducks. game is like watching my two younger brothers go at it, said Doug Carl, who coached Chapman Dallas Hartley and Oregon Phil Keebler at Sonoma State. Evan Merritt sniped the top shelf in the fourth overtime to secure the victory for the Ducks. Austin Lewis became Oregon starting goalie only a few weeks ago, and he played out of his mind in a game of such extreme magnitude.

In a battle between two first year tournament teams, Terry Nichter squad really turned some heads. Four Warriors put four points on the board while Dom Scalzo and Joe Ciringione each went 2 and 1 for the Sailfish. Tech Dylan Johnston is one of the country most electrifying defensemen.

The Beavers had UCSB on the ropes at times in the first half, but the more experienced tournament team pulled it out and doubled up on their opponent in the end. UCSB advances to play Arizona State for the third time this season, while Chad Stelling heads back to Corvallis, Ore., hoping to build a PNCLL dynasty from this debut performance on the MCLA main stage.

The Wolverines are two for two in opening round MCLA Tournament games after beating Western Oregon in 2010. The Eagles, on the other hand, have had bad luck with CCLA teams at the big dance having lost to Davenport 19 12 last season.
The Bears starting attack unit produced 16 total points and advance to face the Tommies. Coach Gary Weller shared with me that he is being retained as field general as the Academy is moving their lacrosse program to NCAA Division III next year.

Michigan State and Stanford both rocked brand new matte helmets, but the wraps on Sonoma and BC should probably be ranked among the coolest in college lacrosse.

Westminster coach Mason Goodhand and Briarcliffe coach SeanMichael Pagano had wanted to play each other in an MCLA Tournament game for a long time, but not necessarily this early. Jake Arthur continues to dress and sit with a broken collar bone for Westminster, who was led by Collin Madsen and Cole Christensen, each tallying four points apiece. Congratulations to the Bulldogs, who earned their way here by winning a third consecutive Pioneer League Championship.

First Round Results and Recaps
This was a tale of two different programs in two different stages. Georgia has a young team that made a goal to survive the SELC Tournament and absorb the atmosphere at Nationals. Chris Malone team is full steam ahead for another run to the Final Four and perhaps their first MCLA Championship.
Sparty ended the first half with an 11 1 lead on the Cardinal. However, the coach Drew Virk squad battled back with a lot of character, having not been to the Tournament since 2001. Michigan State now draws Colorado, a rematch from last year first round that Michigan State won 8 7.

Grand Valley led 6 3 and gave up two late goals, which pretty much led to a one on one showdown between each team best player to end the game. Shelton Polka had scored earlier, but was unable to get the equalizer past Danny Kransberger in the final seconds. Shelton brother Kreyton made 17 saves for SCAD, while Grand Valley Farmer brothers did their jobs well. Tyler managed the game between the lines at midfield while little brother Charlie scored twice.
