Hot Start, Solid Finish Powers #1 Michigan over Purdue

Purdue registered their second and final goal of the game at 9:25 of the fourth, before Yealy added his fifth on an assist from Zorovich, followed by an unassisted goal from sophomore midfielder Sean Sutton (Greenwich, CT./Greenwich) who dodged down the right wing and fired a tough angle shot for the goal. Paras finished a feed from Joe Hrusovsky to make it 26-2, before Ein added back to back goals, including a behind-the-back tally to close out the scoring as Michigan improved to 11-1 on the season.

Statistically, Michigan thoroughly dominated every category. The Wolverines outshot the Boilermakers 76-10, and scooped up 78 groundballs compared to 19 by PU. U-M was 30 of 34 on faceoffs, and cleared the ball at a rate of 22 for 24 while Purdue cleared the ball successfully 15 times in 29 attempts due to the relentless Michigan ride. The Maize and Blue held the Boilermakers scoreless on two man-up attempts while going 3-3 themselves.

The Wolverines will be back in action next weekend (Saturday, April 24) when they head to East Grand Rapids H.S. for the annual Great Lakes Lacrosse Classic and a battle against #6 Michigan State at 7:00pm EST.
