Alumni Game 2011Santa Barbara, CA - The annual UCSB Lacrosse Alumni Weekend featured a series of games at the UCSB Lacrosse Field (aka The Pit). The UCSB men's team took care of business in their game against their alumni and won 12-5. The score was 11-2 until UCSB cleared the bench in the final period. The outcome was never really in doubt, starting from before warm-ups, based on how the current men's team were all together at the field by 11am to watch the UCSB Lacrosse Hall of Fame Game and then immediately took to the field for sharp looking line drills to warm up. The efficiency continued throughout the game as UCSB dismantled their alumni from start to finish. Following that show the UCSB women's lacrosse alumni game commenced. UCSB led 4-2 at halftime against an alumni team featuring 7 former WDIA or WCLA All-Americans. A strong second half propelled the alumni past the current Gauchos for the first alumni win in the history of the series. It was a last second goal with 1 second left on the clock that won it for the alumni.

UCSB WLAX File PhotoUCSB had a 2 goal lead at halftime, led by as many as 4 goals midway through the second half and led by 2 goals with a few minutes left in the game. The alumni started clicking with a little over 5 minutes to go and mounted a rally. The alumni pulled to within a goal with less than two minutes left and trailed just 6-7. They then won the draw to get possession. A flurry of alumni shots were either saved, caromed off the pipe or shot wide but eventually one of the shots tied it 7-7 with 45 seconds remaining in the running clock game. Another alumni draw control and two quick passes led to a last second shot by Sam Lutz ('10) and she scored it for an 8-7 alumni win.
