CCLA Blood Bath Pitt vs. Miami Vs. Ball State
One of the joys of MCLA lacrosse is the weekend road trips to play not one but two sometimes three games.
We hit the road in two hours for Oxford, Ohio for two huge CCLA games.
Pitt 13 Miami 7
Pitt 13 Ball State 5
Miami’s current record is 2-1 with wins over Middle Tennessee and Vanderbilt and a loss to Tennessee.
Ball State’s current record is 1-1 with a win over Butler and a loss to Toledo.
If the Pitt Panthers have any desires to go to the post season tournament in Denver these are games we need to win in the 15-2 18-5 range.
We will learn a lot about each other these next 72 hours. Who is a morning person? Who sleeps with the light on? The questions and more will be answered by the time we arrive at home late Sunday evening. We are taking 4 school vans and the head coaches SUV to the game. Because, we aren’t taking a team bus we miss out on a critical opportunity for team building. Again something that we are working on to fix for next season.
The camera is making the trip so we’ll be able to share all the joys of the road with you.
Weekend Theme Song:
It’s scary stuff asking a mascot to perform in back to back situations but this young man can handle it. We need two wins this weekend, baby please.
