The University of Michigan men’s lacrosse team split a pair of scrimmages as it kicked off NCAA play in Fall Ball on Sunday, falling to Providence, 11-10, in overtime before blowing out Concordia (Wis.), 16-3, at Michigan Stadium.
Michigan scored the first three goals of the game against Concordia and answered the Falcons’ lone first-half tally with a 10-goal run through the end of the third quarter. Freshman midfielder Andrew Mosko (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) notched a hat trick. Yealy, Bryant, sophomore attackman Jeffrey Chu (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga) and freshman midfielder David Joseph (Westlake, Ohio/St. Ignatius) each had two goals.
Chu, a key member of Conestoga’s 2010 state championship team, is a sophomore attackman who enjoyed a solid season for the Wolverines last year in their final year in the MCLA.
Michigan wraps up its fall schedule on Saturday (Oct. 8) at the 5th annual Nick Calleluori Classic at Ridley High. U-M faces St. Joseph’s at 9:30 a.m. and Towson at 12:30 p.m.
Facing Providence in its opening contest as a varsity program, Michigan overcame a three-goal deficit in the fourth quarter to force overtime. One minute and 56 seconds into sudden-victory overtime, the Friars captured the exhibition win.
Fifth-year senior attackman Trevor Yealy (Pittsburgh, Pa./Upper St. Clair) led U-M with three goals in game one, while sophomore midfielder Douglas Bryant (Princeton, N.J./Princeton) and freshman midfielder William Meter (Beverly Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) chipped in two goals apiece. Freshman goalie Emil Weiss (Cary, N.C./Apex) made 15 saves, including eight in the first quarter when Providence outshot U-M 14-6.
