Men’s lacrosse falls to Simon Fraser

The Idaho men’s club lacrosse team could not compete with the offensive firepower of Simon Fraser, falling to the Clan 20-7 in an international meeting Saturday.

The Vandals traveled to British Columbia to face Simon Fraser on Canadian soil. The win improves the Clan’s record to 6-4 and drops the Vandals to 2-6 on the season.

Junior Andrew Spangler led Idaho with two goals and two assists. Freshman Andrew Hill provided a goal and two assists for the Vandals.

Sophomore midfielder Drew Welch netted another two goals for Idaho, while captain A.J. Gravel also scored once during the meeting.

Freshman goalkeeper Peter Kotsonas made 11 saves for Idaho, while freshman goalkeeper Noah Kobowitsch provided another nine.

Junior Tyler Kirkby led Simon Fraser with six goals and an assist, while sophomore Greg Lunde scored four goals and provided five assists for the Clan.


Gonzaga holds off Idaho

The Gonzaga women’s soccer team used an early goal to claim a 1-0 victory over the Vandals Sunday afternoon in Spokane.

Redshirt junior forward Lauren Luke scored the game’s lone goal in the opening minutes of the match.

Midfielder Elexis Schloasserek had the best look for Idaho late in the fourth quarter, but the junior’s shot was unable to find the net.

The Vandals will travel to Portland Sunday to take part in a doubleheader against Concordia and Seattle University.


Club baseball drops series to Western Washington

The Idaho club baseball team dropped a three-game series to Western Washington over the weekend.

The Vikings (6-3) capitalized on a strong offensive showing to extend the team’s win streak to six games.

“It was a pretty rocky weekend for us,” said Idaho captain Drew Fagan. “Western had a really good squad and they were just solid offensively and defensively.”

The Vandals scored three runs in the opening game Saturday, but a late push by the Vikings allowed Western Washington to claim the victory.

Idaho led for the majority of the second meeting between the programs, but squandered the lead in the 8th inning.

“In the second game we were up by one until the last inning,” Fagan said. “So it was nice to know that at least we can compete with the best in the league.”

Western Washington trails conference leader Gonzaga by a half game in the Northern Pacific North Division standings.

“I think it would be a surprise to everyone if they didn’t win the league,” Fagan said.
