April 2, 2014 | SMC v. San Marcos
On Wednesday, April 2, 2014, our men’s lacrosse team battled it out against Cal State University of San Marcos. Starting the game off with a tie of 2 to 2, it was a head to head race to the finish line, throughout the entire game. The Gaels managed to remain in the lead the entire game, but San Marcos was constantly getting close only allowing us to be ahead by one or two goals. This forced Saint Mary’s to stay on our toes. There were a lot of penalties throughout the game, mostly by CSUSM’s player number 22, but the Gaels kept their focus on the game. The men’s lacrosse team kept their heads up and stayed strong, resulting in a win with the final score of 18 to 17. View more photos here.
