3peat Mad City Champs

by Ryan Slank

The team traveled to Madison, Wisconsin on September 18th, 2019.  This is a long-lived Bronco lacrosse

tradition for as long as any alumni can remember. For the third year in a row, the boys entered with a

new head coach and high hopes to win the Mad City Championship


In the middle of the afternoon on the 19th, the Broncos faced their first opponent against the Michigan

Wolverines. The offense filled with both new and returning players struck fast and quickly took the lead.

Taking pride in the ride and all-around effort as a team the WMU Broncos won game one with a score of

11-2. 

 

In their second game an hour later the team competed in a hard-fought game against Cincinnati! The

game went back and forth with both teams being competitive. Maximizing on a few man-up

opportunities and some very stout and smart defensive plays the boys were able to capture the second

victory of the day 8-5!

 

Sunday's championship game pitted the Broncos against a familiar opponent. The University of

Wisconsin-Madison for the third year in a row would put the team to the test. The Badgers came out

swinging gaining a 4-1 lead going into the half putting WMU on their heels. However, during the half,

the team made the necessary changes, and the leaders amongst the boys got the team ready to answer

back. The second half was an entirely different story as the broncos went on to score five unanswered

goals to win their third Mad-City championship in a row!


We are proud of the current team as they have put in a ton of hard work during the fall to raise their

game. They faced all kinds of unique challenges and overcame each of them as a united team

throughout the entire weekend. The Broncos are back to work on Wednesday after some much needed

time off, however, we will not be going far. November 17th the team will travel down to South Bend to

play both the Irish of Notre Dame and the University of Kentucky's respective club teams.  Games kick

off sharp at noon and 1 pm EST.
