If ever there was a game that fit the "should win" description, this was it. And it didn't happen. Michigan lacrosse fans should be pissed off right now. Here's why...
- Dartmouth went into the game with a .197 offensive efficiency; they walked out of Ann Arbor with a .317 offensive efficiency.
- Dartmouth was averaging 5.75 goals per game. They scored thirteen.
- Michigan picked up 11 more GBs, won nine more face-offs (66% on the day), and failed to clear only three times, but took only 29 shots. Dartmouth took 47 shots.
"He's a good netminder who needs the support of the defense in front of him in order to be truly successful. When your guys aren't sliding, or sliding at the wrong time, the open shots are going to be there, and the goalie is only as good as the rest of the defense."
