College lacrosse action on Saturday didn’t dissapoint with Bellarmine defeating Mercer by two goals in the seasons first action and Utah giving Denver all the Pio’s could handle in a one-goal Denver win.

Bellarmine took advantage of no Adam Goldsmith and took down Mercer 9-7. Mercer had a 4-2 lead at the half, but Bellarmine chipped back and took down their conference foe by the end.

Denver coming in as huge favorites over Utah played as poorly as a team could play on offense over the first half allowing Utah a 3-1 lead heading into the third. Denver used a big second half from all of its usual suspects seeing Jack Hannah (2 goals, 1 assist), Ethan Walker (3 goals, 1 assist) and Jackson Morrill (1 goal, 2 assists) all have huge second halfs. In the end, Denver gained the lead and didn’t give it up over the course of the fourth quarter.

All in all, a great first weekend of lacrosse action and I can’t wait for next weekend.
