Bulldogs versus Huskies: Who Will be Top Dog?
by UMD Lacrosse Media Relations
Duluth, MN (February 28, 2012) It’ll be a brawl between the dogs to see who has the bigger bark.
“We grew as a team against the Gophers last weekend and our guys showed a lot of heart and determination,” said assistant head coach Sam Litman.
The Bulldogs are sure to bring that same heart, determination, and maybe a little bite to the field when they face off against the St. Cloud State University Huskies.
The two teams met on the lacrosse field at the Husky Dome in the 2011 season, and it was the Bulldogs who proved themselves to be top dog with a final score of 24-4.
Currently, the Bulldogs stand with a 3-0 divisional record after beating the U of M Gophers on Saturday, February 25 with a final score of 11-9.
Even with a rolling start to their season, the Bulldogs recognize there’s always an extra push they can give and plenty of room for improvement on the field.
“As a team, we need to keep playing with the same focus and intensity we have in our good quarters and bring that the entire game,” said Kevin Gaydos, a senior attackmen from Centennial High School, MN.
In the 2011 season, the Huskies finished their season with a UMLC record of 1-4, and an overall record of 2-8. In the previous six match-ups between the Huskies and the Bulldogs, the Bulldogs have won 6/6 games.
“We fully expect that coach Klemetsrud and staff will have their team ready to go this weekend“ noted head coach Frank Clark, “ we need to focus on playing UMD lacrosse from start to finish”.
The game will take place on Saturday, March 3 at the Husky Stadium in St. Cloud, Minnesota. The game starts at 1:30 pm.
