“Luck of the Tar Heels”

Last Saturday’s game was supposed to be the “Lock of the Week” according to Inside Lacrosse. Notre Dame’s men’s lacrosse team was suppose to beat North Carolina; seems the boys at UNC didn’t get the memo. With a dominating 2nd and 3rd quarter, the Tar Heels beat the Fighting Irish 11-8 on Fetzer Field. In 2006, UNC managed only to win 4 games all season. Thus far they are 5-1 with 7 regular season games to go. The Heels looked solid in their freshmen. There are so many new faces that I didn’t recognize half the players out on the field. That says a lot of great things about their future. It is great to see this team get back to it’s winning ways. I felt an excitement and enthusiasm in the players Saturday that I have not felt from them in a long time.

As always, here are some photos of UNC Lacrosse v. Notre Dame.
