Learning from a Trip to Florida
Mar. 4, 2012
PALM BEACH, FL When Emory accepted opportunities to play Grand Valley State and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in two out of conference games this year, they assumed they'd be playing these elite squads with a full senior class. The season did not get any easier for these young Eagles this past weekend, but Emory stays optimistic after taking the field with two of the very best in the nation in the Salifish Shootout hosted by Palm Beach Atlantic University.
4th ranked Grand Valley State played in the 2008 National Championship game against Westminster and made it to last years' MCLA Division II Final Four as well. Emory was the first MCLA team the Lakers played this season as GVSU started off the year by soundly beating two NCAA Division III varsity opponents in Carthage College and Trine University. In the 27-1 Grand Valley win, Jask Dumsa put up 11 points for the Lakers as Ed Kovel was the only player to find the back of the net for Emory.
Kovel was indeed the offensive spark of the weekend for the Birds as the Junior Middie from Connecticut also scored two goals in the 18-3 loss to the #18 Coast Guard Academy Bears. However, the Team MVP from the Florida trip is without question Tre Haag; the Freshman goalie from Idaho played a full 120 minutes between the pipes this past weekend making 40 saves against two very potent offenses.
