PARENTS WEEKEND A HUGE SUCCESS (2/21/04)

In front of one of our largest crowds of the young season, SU hosted UT-D(or portions of UT-D) on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

With over a hundred fans at the game, a grill going with free hamburgers, and an attempt at a lacrosse game, Southwestern was able to move into a 4-1 Division record with a 15-4 win, and inch closer to the playoff spot it has been eyeing since last year.

The game started more than 30 minutes after the official start time, because the players that actually made it down from Dallas the night before were the members of the Dallas team that were late.

Southwestern got off to a quick start and never looked back. Gainey scored the first goal and had many points on the day.

By the end of the half, SU was up 8-3. With only ten players, SU ran the field with its many lines and it showed. By the end of 3, SU led 12-4, when UT-D, after postponing the start of the game by not showing up on time, had three guys that had to leave so that they could get back to work.

Credit must be given to the remaining 7 players who stuck it out and finished the game.

SU played no starters the entire fourth quarter, giving the many freshmen middies a chance to get on the field for some quality "mop-up" time. Furthermore, our goalies changed and some of our d-men stepped in at attack.

Overall, when there was a full team for UT-D, SU did an excellent job of shutting out their "iso" offense, and playing an increasingly physical defensive style of game.

Caldwell had another great game at attack, and Frank got back on the point board after missing a week. Bier dominated in face- offs, and Arrington is turning into a solid face-off man as well under Bier's tutelage.

Jeffcoat had a good game and Emmel continues to impress and is quickly becoming an impact player, notching two goals on the day for the young middie from Maryland.

Jones stepped into his first starting role on a line and did not disappoint, winning many face-offs, and also getting his first assist of the season. Patten and Bailey both played solid games, as did McCammond, who must have taken more shots than he has all year.

While all the defense played well, including Sean "Irish" Campbell, )an exchange student from Ireland who sunburns when its over 45), the game ball went to Dave Winter, who never stops hustling, and has stepped into the starting D role this year very nicely. All defenders played well, including Nelson who had some solid hustle plays.

This was a big win for SU as we had to come from behind to win in overtime last year to this team. UT-D has some good players and a good goalie, just not enough players.

Next week, SU hosts UTSA, another team SU had to come from behind to win against in overtime last year. If SU wins, they will move to 5-1 in the division.

We appreciate all the fans, and the parents who came out and supported their sons and the team. SU continues to improve every game, and it had better as each game is getting tougher and tougher.
