As NAIA lacrosse slowly starts up, we take a look at games from the past two weekends. As games pick up so will our coverage.
2020 NAIA Men’s Lacrosse February 9 Update
SCAD 14, Montreat 6
The Bees were buzzing on Saturday as the SCAD offense found an early rhythm and never let up. Montreat did have a small run in the second half but it wasn’t enough. A strong showing from several SCAD players on offense means that this team is primed for a strong 2020 campaign.
UM-Dearborn 6, Alma (NCAA DIII) 13
Losing 7-6 after three meant things were close, but Alma used a five-goal run to end the game. Scoring was spread out across five players and the defense held on as long as they could but completing only 15-out-of-29 of your clears means a lot of extra defense. Look for the Wolverines to tidy up the clear and the turnovers as they gear up for the NAIA season.
Keiser 10, Embry-Riddle (NCAA DII) 16
Don’t read into this score too much. Embry-Riddle is a pretty good Division II team on the rise, and losing by six goals means nothing more than Keiser is still very, very good.
Benedictine 4, Rockhurst (NCAA DII) 18
Rockhurst is a really good Division II team, count on this game paying dividends later this season for the Ravens.
Reinhardt 11, Huntingdon (NCAA DIII) 1
Hard to look at exhibition games in detail but all signs point to the Eagles being right on track.
