BU vs. GMU - 3/15/08

Topping: Relish
Sport: Women's Lacrosse
Final Score: BU - 15 GMU - 19

The first women's lacrosse game of the season was brutal to say the least.

It was f*cking freezing and the Terriers just didn't show up to play.

After coming off an impressive 17-7 win at #10 Vanderbilt on Wednesday the Terriers started out flat and stayed flat during their home opener. They did score the first goal of the game but George Mason jumped out ahead to get a 6-2 lead, only 10 minutes in.

The game was back and forth from there on out, but come second half, George Mason grabbed a lead and never looked back with 5 unanswered goals.

The Mason fans (one drunk? dad) went nuts the entire game. However, they only really said two things. "Bada-Bing, Bada-Boom" when GM had the ball and then "Tick-Tock" as the Patriots held the ball for 6 minutes resulting in a goal in the final frame of the second half.

If this team was a bunch of Lauren Morton's they would win every game, but that's not the case, and some other ladies need to step it up. Especially on the defensive end. (But hey, what do I really know about lacrosse?)

Hopefully, this will be the only home loss for the Terriers this season. There are only 5 games remaining at Nickerson. Also, hopefully, all those games will be warmer than today because my hands are still frozen.
