Georgia Bulldogs Men's Lacrosse Team Advances to SELC Semifinals with Season's Second Win Over Florida Gators

In Alpharetta at the 25th anniversary SELC Tournament, the bearded and excited Georgia men’s lacrosse team took on the Florida club squad in a Friday night quarterfinal rematch of the Bulldogs’ 14-3 regular-season victory over the Gators in February. The score was closer this time, but the Red and Black advanced to the next round of the conference tourney.

Georgia had taken a 5-3 lead with four minutes remaining in the second quarter, but the Bulldogs had increased their edge to 7-3 by halftime. After intermission, the scoring was even at four goals per side, producing the 11-7 final margin that gave the Classic City Canines their 13th triumph of the season, and their second over the Sunshine State Saurians, whom they outscored by a combined 25-10 tally.

The Red and Black will face the winner of the Alabama-Florida State game in tomorrow night’s semifinal at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. At last report, the Seminoles led the Crimson Tide, 19-6, after three quarters.
