The No. 2 CSU Rams wrapped up its regular season on Saturday

hosting the Lindenwood-Missouri Lacrosse team.

CSU, planning ahead, sat out six regular players to rest them

for the upcoming league championships. Even though the Rams didn’t

have all of their players, they scored early and often to dominate

Lindenwood by a 25-1 score.

Lacrosse balls found the back of the net seemingly by command

and at halftime CSU was up 13-0. The onslaught continued in the

second half, with the Rams scoring 12 more points. Lindenwood tried

to mount an offense but was quickly shot down. The win moved the

Rams to 19-1 on the year, while the Lions dropped to 10-9 with the

loss.

The Rams then defeated Western State 10-7 in a scrimmage game

that was not taken seriously by either team.

Now the Rams will head to Provo, Utah, for the league

championships.

“Our goal is to win a third consecutive league championship,”

said CSU’s Jason Newell.

The first game for the Rams will be against the No. 19 Utah Utes

Friday at 4 p.m. The last time the Rams and Utes met, the Rams won

19-4 at home.

If the Rams pull out the victory, they will take on either the

No. 5 Colorado Buffaloes, whom the Rams snuck by at Shea Stadium

just more than a week ago 8-7, or the Brigham Young Cougars. The

Cougars are tied with CU at No. 5 in the nation despite dropping

consecutive games against CSU and CU two weeks ago.

The championship game will be at 4 p.m. on Saturday. If the Rams

win their third consecutive conference title they will head to

nationals.
