Tense battle, TV on SunSports.
Gators leading 11-10, NW on offense with under 7 to go.
Tied at 11. Going to overtime.
I am out and about with no access. Please keep the updates coming.
1 minute to go. NW with ball, waiting to take a late shot.
NW scored, but was called for an offensive foul. Going to a 2nd OT.
That is a miracle
NW has control again and will kill clock again.
NW scores and has lead with 15 seconds left.
UF blew a large first half lead and NW seems to have controlled much of the game since about 5 minutes in the first half
UF misses shot and game is over.
That sucks. Only saw the end of reg and OT, but it looks like NW dominated the most important play in women's lacrosse - the draw [jump balls] (winning both in OT). Really hard to win without the ball. Gators had a chance to stall for the win in regulation but turned it over. A bit surprising because they had converted the same scenario quite a few times in the regular season.
Rule changes are desperately needed in this sport.
Very disappointing ending. All in all not bad for rebuilding year.
Rule changes, selection process, and a few other things as well.
My annual rant about Women's rules: They SUCK! I don't think women athletes are so fragile that they cannot put on the pads, helmets and play the Creator's game the same as men.
a 45 second shot clock is much needed for this sport..too easy for a team to win the draw and just kill the clock by playing keep away..IMO the best team did not win Saturday..great season ladies but next year needs to be better..
Adopting the Men's shot clock rule would be a great place to start. I'm not a huge fan because it gives too much discretion to the officials as to whether a stall is on or not. A straight shot clock, like they have in Major League Lacrosse would be ideal.
On my high horse again, but the "traditional" powers seem to fear the speed and athleticism that is finding its way to both mens and women's lax. They know that the up and down game is better suited to the athletes produced in Fl, Cali, and Texas. Sooner or later, they will be forced to get out of the way. Hopefully, the grass roots growth in warm weather states will lead to a voting bloc that will advance the game. Maybe in my lifetime.
