Lacrosse Team Drops Two

Losses last week to Bowling
Green and Ball State thwarted
the Michigan Lacrosse Club's ef-
forts to' claim its first victory of
the spring season.
The 'crossers were scalped 20-0
by the varsity squad from Bowling
Green on We d n e s d a y, then
dropped an 11-5 decision to Ball
State Saturday. Both games were
on the road.
Coupled with an earlier loss to
the Chicago Lacrosse Club, the
'Wdefeats dropped the club's sea-
son mark to 0-3.
Bombarded
Injuries caused a pair of Michi-
gan defensemen to leave the first'
contest early in the first period,
and the Falcons of Bowling Green
proceeded to bombard the helpless
'crossers.
The Michigan club gave up six
goals in the first half of the Sat-
urday game to give Ball State an
insurmountable lead. They came
back strong in the third f'rame,
however, on the strength of three
unassisted tallies by Bob Gillon.
SNaii Davidson added a single
goal' late, in that quarter, then"I

scored again in the final period
with an assist from Gillon.
The club opens its home season
today on South 'Ferry Field{
against Defiance. The game 'will
start at 4:30 p.m.
A second contest will close the
schedule at home on. Saturday,
when the 'crossers.-meet the Chi-
cago club at 2 p.m.
Two road games wrap up the
season, one at Ohio Wesleyan on
Wednesday, April 24, and the fin-
al contest at. Cleveland on Satur-
day, April 27.
