The second day of action in the 40th annual Vail Lacrosse Shootout saw the semi-finals in the Men’s Masters Division. In addition, the highly anticipated Men’s and Women’s Elite tournaments got underway.
In the Masters division, Jagermeister cruised through the second round, and earned their spot in the championship game. In the second semi-final, the tournament’s new overtime rules were tested for the first time when Adrenaline knocked off last year’s champion Hulu. The Adrenaline vs. Hulu matchup was the most exciting game of the day with three goals in the last 1:15 of regulation.
The Men’s Elite division was active for the 40th time, and the Women’s Elite was back in full force. Last year’s champion Merrill Lynch stayed true to form and defeated newcomers, the Crease Beavers in the Men’s Elite. On the women’s side 2011 champion Gang Green cruised past Paradise City in their first game at the Shootout.
On Monday the Men’s Masters Division will wrap up with its championship game at 12:30pm between Team Adrenaline and Jagermeister. Pool play will conclude in the morning for Women’s Elite, and then teams will be placed into a bracket. The Men’s elite division will have its quarter-finals starting at 9:00am at Ford Field.
Results for Sunday 7/1
Jagermeister 12, Olympic Club 6
Olympic Club was right on Jager’s heels for an intense first half of the game. The second half got a little more relaxed as Jager widened their lead. James Kappler of Jagermeister helped the team win with four goals.
Adrenaline 8, Hulu 7
This heated semi-final game went to overtime thanks to Adrenaline’s Bobby Magrin, who had a total of six goals, including the game-winning overtime goal. The efforts of Hulu goalie Kevin McGurn were nothing short of impressive, however, with a total of 18 saves. Both teams held their own and maintained intensity throughout the game, but it was Adrenaline who managed to come out on top.
