Both the men's and women's lacrosse season end with games they should have won. Hope for a better year in 2020.

This team was frustrating to watch. I file this under "Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda".

Drexel played extremely well. No joke. No 'bad calls' made a real difference, the refs I would grade "D" in terms of both controlling the game, and making the 'right call'. On this note, in the last 4+ minutes, UM hurt itself, I have no problem on those calls.

I was very disappointed in the play of the close D. Too many times, Sconone was left alone at his doorstep - 1 yard away, to meet a threat. He made a lot of great saves, but that was too much of a burden to expect
for UM to survive without a goal.

UM had a good season, but we all felt MORE success would occur than losing at home in the semi-final game.

We now lose a lot of great players, especially Sconone. We now look forward to how Coach re-arms.

decent season overall but certainly not what longtime followers of the men's lax team hope for. I have no idea if next year will be better or not.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.
