SU PLAYS HISTORIC GAME AGAINST #16 HARDING UNIVERSITY (3/27/04)

On Saturday, March 27th, SU travelled up to UTA to play Harding University from Arkansas at a neutral site, in the first ever meeting between the two teams. Harding came in undefeated and ranked #16 in the nation, and SU came in at 6-3 and #17 in the nation. The game proved to be a tale of two halves.

To start the game, SU benched its star face-off man, leading scorer, and starting goalie due to inadherance to team policies. SU was able to hold the line early until the starters came in at the 6 minute mark of the first quarter. Adams, who stepped in at goalie made a nice save early on, and the rest of the team played great in transition.

Once the starters came in, SU started scoring, notching its first of the day on a man up to Gainey. Shortly after, Harding came back and tied the game at one.

At that point, SU finished out the quarter with the lead 5-1, and went into the half ahead 7-4.

Credit must be given to Harding. They never quit, and literally stole the momentum in the second half by out-hustling SU in every facet of the game. SU only scored twice in the second half. After taking a brief 9-6 lead, SU proceeded to allow Harding to score 6 unanswered goals to end the game with a 12-9 victory.

The Bucs were able to hold the lead until midway through the 4th quarter when Hardng broke the second tie of the game and took their first lead of the day. With time running out and SU in need of possession, SU doubled the ball and was beat inside two minutes twice for two goals that sealed the fate of SU.

The Buc's came out lethargic in the second half, found no offensive motion, and were simply out-hustled and out hit in the second half by a Harding team that wanted the game more. In fact, #17 managed to have one of the best games SU has seen from any individual player in years with 9 goals and one assist to have more points than the entire SU team put together.

SU had a great opportunity to represent the LSA and to play a formidable opponent, and was simply not able to match the intensity and never say die attitude of the Harding players and coaches.

The team would like to thank Harding for making the trip down to Dallas to play SU, as well as UTA for hosting both teams at a neutral site. The game was a good experience, and showed, that anyone can start something, that is the easy part. It is much harder to finish what you started. Harding was able to accomplish this and was rewarded with the win. SU was not.
