Mesa Fresh 2015 won the top bracket of the MVP Lacrosse Tournament in the class of 2015 division. The event was held over three days at Rider University this past weekend.
Mesa Fresh went undefeated in pool play, including a thrilling overtime victory against a very competitive Leading Edge. Mesa Fresh went into the championship round as the top seed. The team then completed the tournament undefeated with a come-from-behind overtime victory against a strong Chesapeake ROCK. The Mesa Fresh victory was a total team win and both winning goals were assisted.
This is Mesa’s second tournament victory this summer resulting in a second bid to play in the Dicks Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions this December in Florida. To qualify, teams must earn a bid to compete in this national tournament by virtue of their play at one of the series of 30 qualifying tournaments. Mesa Fresh 2015 has received two bids for this tournament by winning the championship games at both the Brine Lava Lax Tournament and the MVP Summer Tournament this month.
