Boise State (4-7) and University of Idaho (4-5) played a close, hard fought game Saturday afternoon in the City of Trees. The crowd was loud, enthusiastic, and one of the largest I’ve seen at a Boise State lacrosse game with both teams well represented. The game was close throughout and the Broncos ended the 3rd quarter with an 11-8 lead. The Vandals scored three quick goals to start the 4th to tie the score at 11 causing Boise State to take a timeout and settle things down. After the timeout, the Broncos regained their composure controlling much of the possession and getting two goals to win by a final score of 13-11. The standouts from Saturday’s rivalry game for the Broncos were:
- #1 Jake Christensen – senior middie – 12 groundballs, 1 goal, 3 assists.
- #13 Harrison Collard – sophomores middie – 18/24 faceoffs, 8 groundballs.
- #11 Dolin Culver – freshman attack – 3 groundballs, 3 goals, 1 assist.
And the Vandals standouts were:
- #39 Eric Fletcher – senior attack – 5 goals, 3 assists.
- #15 Kyle Morse – sophomore attack – 3 goals.
