The mark of a good team is being able to still win games when you aren't playing very well.

DU got the job done yesterday.

This is the biggest game of the year for AFA, and a trap game for DU and the Pios still pulled out the victory.

A good win, for sure. But the closeness of the game concerns me. I hope DU can get more consistent as the season progresses. One poor performance in the NCAA's = first round exit. And BTW, lacrosse is not a game that is very well suited to radio broadcasts! I listened for a bit last night, and it's really hard to tell what is going on in the game until someone scores.
