Yealy's Six Power #1 Wolverines by Michigan St.

Over the next five minutes, both teams had possessions but were unsuccessful as intensity increased and the defenses buckled down. At 3:39, Yealy netted his fourth of the night before MSU answered Michigan's onslaught a minute later to cut the Michigan lead to 12-8 at the end of the quarter.

The Spartans inched closer when they netted the first goal of the fourth at 13:34. Yealy responded for Michigan, netting back-to-back goals over the next four minutes as U-M increased their lead to 14-9 with 9:20 left. The Spartans quickly answered under a minute later to cut the lead to four, but were never able to draw closer as Michigan's defense held on down the stretch for the 14-10 win.

Statistically, it was a mixed bag. U-M scooped up 51 groundballs compared to 34, and won 21 of 28 faceoffs but was out-shot by MSU 43-41. Both teams struggled to clear the ball, with the Wolverines finishing 12-24, while MSU was 13-23. U-M scored twice on three man-up attempts, while the Spartans scored on one of five opportunities.

The Michigan Wolverines will be back in action on Saturday, April 23 at 7:00 pm EST against University of Toledo in Toledo, OH.
