Mar 24 – Dons Stomp on the Mats

There was a fantastic turn out of fans and supporters on Tuesday night including the UCSB Men’s Lacrosse Team who came to watch the Dons take on Miramonte and honor the life of Matt Lynn. There were many colorful socks on the field worn in tribute to Matt. On behalf of the Lynn Family and the Acalanes’ Lacrosse programs, thank you for your support.

Once again, there were many contributors on the field with impressive plays coming from a number of players: Defensively, Josh Baginski , Vinny Gladden, Glenn Johnston, and Brian Maiken fought relentlessly to protect the goalies only allowing Miramonte to score 1 the entire game and forcing a number of turnovers on the Mats. Tom Hofmeister forced a great turnover and scooped up an impressive ground ball to run down the field for a terrific clear. Freshman pull-up Calvin Vance retrieved one ground ball and forced a turnover in his first official appearance as a Varsity player.

Offensively, the Dons dominated scoring a total of 15 goals. Adrian Jeffries led with points, scoring 3 goals and 5 assists. Nathan Brickman had 3 goals and 2 assists. Vinny Gladden had 2 goals. Sam deRoque, Chris Greer, Grant Jackson, Chris Lane, Nathan Lee, Brian Maiken and Cole Tanner each scored 1 goal. Tyler Henderson had 2 assists and Jack Thoren had 1.
