DU Lacrosse Teams Sweep Over The Weekend

DU Women's Lacrosse
The University of Denver Women's Lacrosse team defeated Stanford 12-9 on Saturday afternoon. DU Sophomore Jenn Etzel scored twice and had two assists and junior Mikayla Clark added a hat trick to  on Senior Day at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

"This was a very exciting win for us. Stanford has been one of our top conference opponents for seven years running, so it was a great win," head coach Liza Kelly said. "The girls really made an effort to play hard for our seniors, and I think they did that."

DU Men's Lacrosse
Led by a season-high six points from senior Mark Matthews on five goals and one assist the #9 University of Denver men's lacrosse team defeated Bellarmine University 12-6 on Friday evening at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. 

"Overall the effort was there," said head coach Bill Tierney. "We didn't finish well early when we had some chances and then they got the ball in their hands and it turned into a wild game. When it came back to 7-6 I thought our guys really showed some fortitude, stood up and scored five straight goals for the win."
