INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Continuing their winning ways are your very own Judson Eagles Men's Lacrosse team, with the victory over Butler University extends their winning streak to nine wins in a row. After a rocky start in the Butler Bulldog Battle the Eagles spread their wings and soar high above the host Bulldogs.

After a rough first quarter the Eagles made the adjustments including a change in goalies. "It wasn't Blaize's night, he wasn't seeing he ball well tonight. That is why we have more than one goalie, Sam stepped in and did a great job off of the bench" head coach A.J. Collier stated. "The Blackhawks have their tandem of Corey Crawford and Ray Emery and we have our tandem of Blaize Diaz and Sam Williamson, they don't take it personally and know that we need to do what we think is best for the team."

 

Goalie was not the only position that wasn't clicking early. The offense was flat and defense was not communicating as they have in earlier games this year. Offense had a season high 17 unforced errors (bad passes, forced passes, dropped balls and poor ill advised shots) that kept Butler in it early. The good news is that the Eagles were able to make the adjustments at half time and came out on fire in the second half. The defense became more stingy in the second half only giving up four while the offense pulled it together to find the back of the net 12 more times to bring the score to 22-10 at the final buzzer.

 

The Eagles play two tommorrow as they face conference foe Wabash College for the final conference game that has GRLC playoff implications! The Eagles then face a tough opponent in Siena Heights to wrap up their stay in Indy, and this years Butler Bulldog Battle.
