#1 Michigan Runs by #24 Missouri to Go 12-0

Mizzou rallied back with a goal at 9:12 of the third, their final tally of the night. Bryant then found the back of the cage for his first of the evening on the man-down under a minute later as Michigan led 20-1 mid-way through the third. The scoring slowed as both teams battled back and forth for the next seven minutes until Paras scored his fourth of the night followed by Carroll a minute later to close the third-quarter scoring as Michigan led 22-9.

The home team's man up unit struck again when Chu netted his second of the night at 13:23 of the fourth for his second man-up goal of the night. Following possessions for both teams, Vasileff found the twine five minutes later, marking his second of the game. Two minutes later senior midfielder Stephen Levitt (Alpine, NJ Dwight Englewood) broke through his defenders to beat the goaltender on a low blast from straight out. The Tigers awarded the Wolverines another man up opportunity with under four minutes left allowing Carroll to net his eighth of the night on a high blast on an assist from Paras to close the game for a 26-9 victory for the Wolverines.

Statistically, Michigan dominated every category. They out-shot Missouri 56-25, scooped up 57 groundballs compared to 37, and won 19 of 36 faceoffs. Michigan cleared the ball at a fantastic rate of 16 for 19, while riding the Tigers to 9-14 totals. U-M scored on all six man-up attempts, while Mizzou scored on 2 of 8 opportunities.

The Maize and Blue will be back in action on Saturday, April 16 at 7:00 pm EST against Michigan State University at Birmingham-Seaholm High School in Birmingham, MI.
