Men’s lacrosse beats Augsburg 18-1

The St. Thomas men’s lacrosse team beat Augsburg 18-1 at home Tuesday, April 12, with 13 different players scoring during the game.

Tuesday’s win improved the Tommies’ record to 12-1 overall and 4-0 in the Division II Upper Midwest Lacrosse League.

Senior goalie Thomas Thone said Tuesday’s game was a learning experience for the team.

“It was a good experience for the younger players, and it allowed our team to rest the older guys to get ready for the Johnnies game,” Thone said.

The Tommies’ win helped the team gear up for the rivalry game against St. John’s Friday. The Johnnies are tied for first with North Dakota State in the UMLL with a 5-0 record.

“With St. John’s, it is always a personal matter,” Thone said. “We know them really well, since we play them every year. They’ll try and get in our heads, but we can’t let our emotions get the best of us. We just need to play our game and stay calm, cool and collected.”

The Tommie-Johnnie game is at 8:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, at St. Thomas Academy. The game will be streamed live on the team’s website through the Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network.
