The UA lacrosse team advanced to the semifinals of the West Coast Lacrosse League playoffs Saturday with a 12-7 victory over UC San Diego. Led by another stellar performance from Charlie Mink, the Laxcats used a third-quarter outburst to run away from the Tritons.
Arizona will take on Sonoma State Saturday at the WCLL Final Four in Davis, Calif.
"It was good to get it over with," UA head coach Mickey-Miles Felton said of the victory. "I am pleased with the win, but we have a lot of work to do before this weekend."
The Laxcat defense kept UCSD's offense in check as Felton's team jumped out to a 3-1 lead after the first period. Led by their first team All-WCLL selections Tommy Christian and Jeff Cady, the Laxcats kept the clamps down on the Tritons as the Laxcat offense found the net four more times in the second quarter to take a commanding 7-2 lead at the half.
