Lacrosse is taken to task in Vegas

The normally dominating Biola lacrosse team is shut down in a Los Vegas tournament.

The Biola lacrosse team set out for the bright lights of Las Vegas last weekend to compete in the Full House Face-off Tournament.

The team’s first opponent was Western Oregon, which came out firing, scoring six goals in the first period to take a 6-0 lead. They would extend that lead to 7-0 in the second period before senior midfielder Jordan Adams finally netted the first Biola goal.

Sophomore Adam Kingston and senior Billy McMahan led Biola in scoring with two goals apiece. Fifth year senior John Crowell also netted a goal for the Eagles, but the offensive onslaught of Western Oregon was too much to overcome, and 19 of their 48 shots found the back of the net. The Eagles lost 19-6.

The team’s next match was against Northern Arizona. Biola hung tough and made it a close game, but ultimately were defeated 12-9.

The Eagles faced stiff competition, but they are still an elite team in the Southwestern Lacrosse Conference. Look for them to rebound in a big way.

Biola’s next game will be at home against Long Beach State, Saturday, Feb. 27 at 1 p.m.
