Upsets in Day 3 of WDIA – DI Play

The evening started with an epic battle between #3 seed Lindenwood and #7 BYU. Tied at halftime, it looked like BYU was posed to have the first upset victory of the evening. However, Lindenwoods defense shut out the Cougars for the final 21 minutes of the game, and held on to 12-9 win to advance to the semi-finals tonight.

There were nothing but upset victories for the rest of the evening. UCSB came out firing and took the early lead, but the stifling CSU defense came back and didn’t allow another goal for the final 19 minutes of the first half. CSU’s attack started to heat up, and helped the Rams to a 8-7 victory, and the right to face Lindenwood in tonight’s 8pm semi-final game.

Meanwhile, another upset was brewing on field 4. CU beat the #1 seeded and highly favored Santa Clara Mustangs. The Buffs defense held Santa Clara to under 10 goals for only the second time this season, and had the scoring support to win 12-9 and move on to the semi-final game at 6pm tonight.

The last game of the night ended in an over time battle between two California schools, #4 UC Davis and #5 Cal Poly. They split the two games played earlier this year, and were posed to battle to the end for the chance to play the Buffs. Over time was needed to decide the third meeting between the teams. Cal Poly, always a great National Tournament team, prevailed and will play CU this evening.

Stay posted for more scores and information.
