Sixteen Photos That Make You Miss the 2015 MCLA National Tournament Finals

Sixteen Photos Unseen From MCLA National Tournament Semi-Final & Final Rounds

Since MCLA.us has idled as nothing more than a splash page for the past few weeks, it’s been a struggle to find stats, schedules and other top-notch information about the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association since our all-mighty database is offline for now.

What else can we do but look back at the Semi-final and Final Rounds of the exciting MCLA National Tournament!

DII: Concordia 15 vs Western Washington 8

Concordia and Western Washington knew this game would be a battle, with WWU having a high powered offense the Eagles knew their defense would be tested. Concordia’s defense was able to stall the Vikings offense enough to get a chance against Dayton in the Finals.

Final Round

DI: Colorado University 8 vs Grand Canyon University 9

I don’t think a single soul was surprised when Colorado made it to the finals for their second straight year.

Grand Canyon, on the other hand, was given a generous spot in the poll coming into 2015 but it seemed like no one thought they would ever hold up to their early ranking.

Most of us would have thought a bigger name school like Arizona State or Colorado State may have had a chance to beat the back-to-back champs. The Lopes from Grand Canyon had other plans and stole the National Title away from the Buffs to cap off the end of a monumental season.

DII: Concordia 11 vs Dayton 12

The Concordia Eagles were undefeated coming into the National Championship Final against Dayton. Completing an undefeated season would’ve been a great story but Dayton had other plans and claimed the DII title.
