I have no clue. LMU is a very young team (most players who played today are freshmen and sophomores). Santa Clara played reasonably well (for a change), but not great.
P.S. At some point in the fourth quarter, LMU goalie got ejected for arguing a call with the officials. Santa Clara supporters loudly cheered the ejection even though the result of the game had not been in doubt for quite some time. LMU had to put a field player in goal. Classless on the part of those Santa Clara folks, in my opinion.
Parents will be parents. Anything that supports their team they will cheer about. I think that happens across the sport, every level. I can only imagine what would happen if that happended at a UCLA-USC game! I don't think those fans would go silently. Little silly of a goalkeeper to argue a call when there is a line judge sitting right there.
Weird to think LMU has not made the finals for three staight seasons. Hard to believe after their great runs with Andy and co.
Congrats to UCSD. They will be the heavy favorites next year returning their two best players IMO coming off of a redshirt. Davis is going to be very good. Leyson has a system that works. I'm interested to see what he does with that program once he gets a couple of his own recruiting classes. UCSD's goalie played fantastic. He always seems to step up championship time.
