s UConn Men's Lacrosse: Huskies Down Holy Cross

Huskies Down Holy Cross

Monday, March 17, 2003

(Worcestor, MA) Uconn avenged their overtime loss of last year by downing the Holy Cross Club Team 11-4, evening up their record at 2-2. Coach Davis was extremely proud of the win. "We played very well. The offense is beginning to learn control and the defense solidified a bit since the Va Tech game. We got a lot of young guys in for some valuable experience tonight. I was especially happy
with the play of Scott Apelgren (Simsbury, CT), who played extended minutes following the early ejection of Pat Higgins. Our two goalies also had solid games. Both Pete King (Bedford, MA) and John Carlin (Fair Lawn, NJ) played well; recording 5 and 7 saves respectively."

However, the Huskies played a far from perfect game. As coach Davis explains, the Huskies struggled on man-up, only going 2 for 6, and also struggled on face offs.

"We did not run our EMO properly. I would like to have about a 70% success rate on man-ups. I don't understand why, but the EMO was not playing as a team. They appeared to expect a shot after only one pass. We luckily did not need these goals, but we must correct the problem before we head into the meat of our season. As for face offs, we only won 7 of 16. We dominated the first quarter 4-1, but after our starting face off middie Jay Knott (Ashland, MA) had to go to the hospital due to a shoulder injury early in the second period, we struggled."
