SENIOR DAY A HUGE SUCCESS (4/22/06)

As the Bucs have done for years, on Saturday, the last home game of the season on Moses field, the Seniors were all sent out as captains. Seniors included Brent "Pasty" Wilson - a super chemist at UNT to be (I can't believe you turned down Georgia my man), Andrew Kerr - Mr. southwestern and future Lawyer, Eric Baker - Future game show host and Communications guru, Jay Gupta and Om Panchal - both future Doctors, Mike Jeffcoat - he's a "philosophizer", and last but not least, Daniel Ehrlich - future counselor of many.

These guys have seen Southwestern Lacrosse run the gamut. No one more than Ehrlich, who came in in 2001 and was pleaded into playing goalie on a team that had 12 players. After skipping last year, he is back for a chance to win a championship.

The Bucs knew that in order to have that chance they had to win against TCU. After a slow start, that is exactly what they did in a 21-3 win.

After TCU went up early in the game, SU bounced back with a goal of their own, but really didn't kick start their game until Irish, who has been really coming into his own the last few games, placed a goal in the net for SU's first lead. SU never looked back. By the end of the half, SU was up 9-2 and beginning to wear down the TCU team, who had only 12 in uniform.

All senior scored, save Pasty and Jay, although Jay had opportunities. Other players that were in the mix included Jeffocat with his 100th point of his career in the second, Jones, Brown, Pritchett with a great, but quite game, and Thompson.

As all 33 players got in the game, some of the guys who don't normally get the spotlight made huge impacts. Thompson is really starting to find the back of the net. Guillo, just this week switched to LSM, had an immediate impact with an assist. Bryson, who might very well be the league's leading scorer if he was able to play every game, was also unstoppable. Of course, Webb and Jones played great games as always.

in all there were 12 scorers and 10 of the 21 goals were assisted. Baker got the game ball, although many deserved it, including Om with 1 goal and 1 assist.

But the day belonged to the seniors, and the fourth belonged to one in particular.

Daniel, a former goalie who had trained to be one of our attack men all summer before we knew about Webb and Jeffcoat, came up with one of the best lines of the year. At the end of the 3rd quarter and with a commanding lead, Ehrlich requested to be placed in at attack. Coach, he said, " I have lost many games in goal, some pretty bad. I have seen more than 140 goals go by me in my career. Once, just once, I want to fell what it is like to score one."

From that point on, the entire teams' mission was to get Daniel the ball for a chance to score. For almost the entire 4th quarter Daniel was the only one taking shots. And for almost the entire fourth quarter, the TCU goalie, who was truly amazing by the way, shut him out. Daniel took 8 shots, two that hit pipe, three barely wide, and 3 more that were great saves by the goalie before his 9th shot as time expired made it in.

In short, the goal, the game was a microcosm of what lacrosse means to the guys on the team. All year, the guys who started in early September, have been preparing for the weekend ahead of us. Each, in their own way has had to deal with many things outside of the lacrosse field lines in order to get to this point.

While we have been able to go undefeated as a team in conference for almost two complete years now, the playoffs will determine how successful of a season these guys have had.

We appreciate the support we have received from the community this past year, and hope we can count on all of you for a few more games as we prepare for the playoffs. On Saturday we host the very tough UTA at 10a.m. for a chance to go to the finals on Sunday against either Trinity or St. Ed's.

None of these games will be easy.It will take the entire team working collectively and individually to do their best and have a chance to win. One thing is for sure. The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary. These guys have worked very hard for the opportunity to play a very good UTA team on Saturday.

They have, to a man, made many sacrifices, in order to be a part of the team and to get to this point. In many ways, the season is just beginning. We hope everyone will come along for the ride.
