FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -Spring
break and Florida go hand in hand for
your typical Michigan student. The
warm weather, beaches and endless
parties are just a few of the reasons
why droves of college students head
south every year.
The Michigan men's lacrosse club,
though, had a different agenda as it
headed to the Sunshine State over its
vacation. The Wolverines used the
week to hone their skills against top
notch competition.
The Wolverines swept the Ft. Lau-
derdale city team, and the Florida and
Auburn lacrosse clubs in a span of
four days last week. On top of that, a
third of the team did not even make
the trip. Not exactly a relaxing break.
The "vacation" started last Wednes-
day when Michigan faced Ft. Lauder-
dale. The game posed the biggest chal-
lenge of the week for the Wolverines,
since Ft. Lauderdale was entirely
made up of former varsity lacrosse
players from top Division I and III
college teams.
"These (players) weren't in their
50s," Michigan coach Bob
DiGiovanni said. "They were all
young (players) in their 20s who knew
how to play the game."
The younger and undermanned
Wolverines opened the game with a
surprising 2-0 lead, with midfielders
Spencer Alstodt and Daniel Moo scor-

ing the first two goals of the game.
Ft. Lauderdale quickly showed why
it was such a formidable opponent, as
it scored two quick goals to knot the
score at two at the end of the first
The second quarter began as a de-
fensive struggle before Ft. Lauder-
dale flexed its muscle, once again
scoring two goals at the end of the
The third quarter was an offensive
showcase, as scoring went back and
forth for the entire period. Michigan
attackers Bill Argesinger and Tom Lal 1,
as well as midfielders Brian Molitor
and Chuck Garner, each added a goal.
After the dust settled, the Wolverines
still found themselves down 7-6 going
into the fourth quarter.
Ft. Lauderdale opened the final
stanza by adding a goal to its lead,
making the score 8-6. Garner and
Argesinger then scored two unan-
swered goals for Michigan to tie the
game, 8-8. Ft. Lauderdale answered
with two goals of its own to bring the
lead back up to two.
The Wolverines were down at this
point, but they were definitely not
Michigan found the scoring touch
again, adding two goals near the end
of the fourth quarter to send the game
into overtime. The last goal came
within minutes of the end of the game,
as Molitor scored his second goal.
The Wolverines, propelled by their

momentum from the fourth quarter,
won the game as Argesinger put in the
final goal just three minutes into the
sudden death overtime period. Michi-
gan completed the comeback, win-
ning 11-10.
College club teams like Florida and
Auburn didn't pose nearly the chal-
lenge to the Wolverines as the power-
ful Ft. Lauderdale team did. Michi-
gan came away with convincing vl
tories against both squads, winnilef
9-6 and 13-3, respectively.
Scoring was spread evenly among
the Wolverines over the entire trip, as
six players had at least six attack
points, given for either scoring or as-
sisting a goal.
Garner led all Michigan players with
12 attack points. Molitor followed with,
10, while Argesinger was next with
seven. Three Wolverines - L
Alstodt and Succarde - each had six.
Despite the balanced scoring at-
tack, the defensive effort was the
strongest aspect of Michigan's game
over its three-game trip. The Wolver-
ines struggled defensively in the first
game of the season against Michigan
State. Coupled with the fact that the
players who didn't make the trip de-
pleted the Wolverines' defensive
corps, Michigan seemed destined for
an unsuccessful road trip.
"We sat back on our heels when we
played (Michigan State)," DiGiovanni
said. "We played more aggressively
this time.
