Bracketology: MCLA Division Two

May 8, 2013

#1 St. Thomas vs. DePaul     The defending National Champions will be taking on a new comer to the National Tournament in DePaul. I have a feeling that this game is going to be a lot closer than a lot of people might think.  Although I believe St. Thomas will win the game, I think that DePaul will give them more of fight that the Tommies are used to getting…

Stealth Move Back to First, Defeat Swarm

March 4, 2013

The Minnesota Swarm went in to Comcast Arena last night and once again laid an egg early in the game and came out in the losing effort. The Swarm lost to the Washington Stealth 11-8. Much like last weekend against the Rush, the Swarm came out slow and very unenergetic. This forced them down early and gave Washington the chance to extend their lead in the West. The Stealth, lead…
