This week’s Midwest notebook features Culver Academy hoisting its third-straight Midwest Lacrosse Challenge trophy, a feature on Mariemont, close calls and a power meeting between state powers.
Team of the Week
Cincinnati.com has a nice story on Mariemont (Ohio) and the team’s quest to return as the Division II state champion.
Steve Peterson’s Warriors were 37-6 over the last two seasons coming into this season where they’re expected to make another postseason run. In their own Cincinnati Hills League, they’ve demolished Taylor 17-0, Indian Hill 16-5 and Wyoming 14-4.
Dublin Coffman (Ohio) gave Brother Rice (Mich.) a run for their money last week. The 8-6 Brother Rice victory was the closest any team has come to beating the Warriors since St. Xavier (Ohio) played them to a 12-11 decision. It was the first time all season Brother Rice was held to fewer than 10 goals.
MICDS (Mo.) put its 85-game in-state winning streak on the line when it met De Smet (Mo.) last week. The Rams have not lost an in-state game since 2014, but by halftime, they held just a 7-5 lead. De Smet took a 3-2 lead in the first and its offense was led by Dan Kinzel who scored five goals and two assists.
But the MICDS offense proved too much by scoring six of the first eight goals in the third quarter. Henry Carpenter scored five goals while Thomas Clark and Graham Bundy scored four and three, respectively, in the victory.
With Bundy’s performance, the Georgetown commit is two points shy of 400 for his career.
Hoisting the Trophy
Culver Academy (Ind.) won its 12th straight game with a 13-2 win over New Trier (Ill.) as part of the Midwest Lacrosse Challenge last weekend. The Eagles defeated the Trevians in the final after ousting Everest Academy (Canada) 14-1 in the semifinal and Glenbrook North (Ill.) 17-2 in the first round.
Owen Hiltz scored at least five goals in the final (official stats were not kept).
Culver Academy has not lost since dropping a 12-11 decision to McDonogh (Md.) on March 25.
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.
