Tech and Chapman University faced off late thursday in a long awaited showdown between two undefeated teams at the top of the rankings for the majority of the season. Chapman University, a west coast high powered offensive machine with a winning tradition and national visibility against the rising Yellow Jackets who dominated the east coast and a dominent defense and productive offense. Lacrosse at its best in a back and forth contest; Tech led at halftime 5-4, no team led by more than two goals the enire game until Chapman appeared to seal the game with a score giving them a three goal margin with only minutes left in the game. The determined Jackets were not done yet as they scored two goals in a furious comeback to close the margin to one but ran out of time as Chapman scored an open net "insurance" goal at the end winning 11-9. Chapman advanced to overwhelm Cal Poly and win the National Championship.
Jackets advanced to face number one Chapman in the Final Four by frustrating a high powered BYU Couger offense with great team defense, inspired play in the goal by senior Matt Sommerfeldt, and an opportunistic offense 7-5.
Tech scored early posting three goals in the first quarter and lead throughout until a late BYU run to bring the game to 6-5 was ended by a Holland Frost faceoff win, drive and feed to Chris O'Brien for a score in the last two minutes to seal the victory.
In a defensive struggle Tech holds off a potent Cal-Berkeley Offense in the 4th Quarter and adds an insurance goal to advance to the Elite 8 For the second straight year in the first round of the MCLA tournament.
Tech Wins SELC advances to National Tournament - Apr 24, 2016
The Jackets win the SELC Championship with three back to back convincing victories featuring devasting defense and relentless offense. Tech defeated to very determined teams; Liberty in the Semi Finals and Virginia Tech in the finals both harboring very strong desire to advance to the National Championship Tournament and a similiar game plan to control the game with deliberate offense and a tough defense.
Tech wore both teams down by denying any opportunties defensively until the offense broke free in the third quarters of both games to put the games out of reach.
Before a large crowd in town for the 45th Reunion and Kiehl Stands dedication Georgia Tech unleashed its potent offense and epic domination on faceoffs to throttle the undefeated and much improved Bulldogs 19-8 to win the SELC Southwest Division and complete the 2016 Regular season undefeated.
The Jackets Offensive Firepower and determined defense supported by Holland Frost and Andrew Yi in a dominating performance at faceoff were too much for Georgia to overcome as Tech won possession after possession to extend it winning streak over the Dawgs to four.
The Jackets raced out to a quick 3-0 lead after Senior Ben Mertz opened the scoring, one of three on the day for him. Midfielder Holland Frost (4g,2a) and Attackman Timmy Peterson (3g,4a) led all scoring as the offense did not slow down as they poured in 11 in thew first half to lead 11-5. The stingy Jacket defense did allow a season high in goals but faceoff domination and combined with offensive pressure kept Georgia in a constant hole from which they could not climb out.
