Loyola Academy def. St. Viator 10-6
Although the weather was brutal, this was a delightful game. St. Viator proved it is a championship contender with this performance. They have top-level players and play hard. Loyola has been devastated by injuries this year, but it does not seem to slow them down. It's their next-man-up philosophy that pushes them forward. No team likes injuries, but this will help the young players get valuable experience against top-notch talent. The LaxRecords Player of the Game was junior attackman Kaden Keller with three goals and four assists.
Olentangy Liberty (Ohio) def. Carmel (Ind.), 8-2
Contrasted with the Loyola Academy game, this was a bright, beautiful game in nice spring weather. Olentangy Liberty lost three of its first four games and then lost big to Brother Rice (Mich.), so it was tough to tell if they were strong this season. They came out well against Carmel, controlling the ball most of the game. When Carmel did get it, they ran into a strong defense led by Ohio State recruit Andrew Guagenti. When they managed to get a shot off, they were stopped time-and-again by the LaxRecords Player of the Game Adam Blind (Class of 2021). To keep the high powered Carmel offense to two goals shows that Liberty is legit and may be coming together at the right time. Carmel has struggled with injuries to some of their top players this year. It's been a juggling act to find the right combo to gel as a team. Carmel is athletic and skilled and will be a dangerous team. The regular season is the time to figure out who you are, and the playoffs are where you prove it. They will figure it out.

You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
