Georgia Bulldogs Lacrosse: Women Complete A-Town Throwdown, Men Remain in First Place in Division

The Georgia lacrosse teams were in action on Sunday, with the women wrapping up the A-Town Throwdown Tournament and the men dueling Tennessee in SELC action. Between them, the two clubs went 2-1 on the day.

The Georgia lacrosse ladies leapt all over their Texas counterparts in Sunday’s early game. The Red and Black had surged to a 6-0 advantage with 16 minutes remaining in the first half, but a trio of Burnt Orange goals in the final minute before intermission made it 7-4 at the break.

The Lady Bulldogs had widened that margin to 9-4 by the time Texas scored to narrow the gap to four goals. A pair of Longhorn saves kept the score unchanged, but a Georgia goal with 15 minutes left to play forged a 10-5 lead for the Red and Black. What seemed to be a safe 12-6 Athenian advantage with five minutes remaining appeared imperiled when Texas scored three unanswered goals, but a late Georgia score secured a 13-9 victory.

Against Colorado State, the Lady Bulldogs quickly found themselves trailing, 3-0, before they found the back of the net twice to shave the margin to a single goal. The Rams tacked on two of their own, though, and the combatants traded scores until CSU was up, 7-3. It was at that point that Georgia notched three unanswered goals to head to halftime trailing by one.

The Red and Black forged an 8-8 second-half tie, but Colorado State had gone out in front, 10-8, with 20 minutes still to play. Unfortunately, there was no additional scoring during those final 20 minutes, so the game ended in a loss for the Georgia women. In the meantime, the Bulldog men overcame a 2-0 first-quarter deficit to lead Tennessee, 5-2, at the half. Though the Volunteers had shaved that advantage to a lone goal at the end of three periods, the Red and Black gents held on to preserve an 8-6 triumph over the Big Orange. Once again, a vanquished Southern opponent accepted defeat with class.
