Results from the 40th Vail Lacrosse Shootout: Day 8

The second day of heavy rain in the Vail Valley wreaked havoc on the Shootout. The U-19 Girls' Gold bracket semifinals were moved to Sunday morning. The youth Chumash tournament canceled its afternoon games and the U-19 boys' 3:00 pm games finished well after 6:00 pm.

In the Grandmasters (50 and over) championship game the Eldest Statesmen were victorious for the fourth year in a row. The men from Hobart are now a combined 12-0 in Grandmasters play since the inception of the division. The Statesmen outscored their opponents 36-11 this year, dominating in every game they played.

The semifinals of the Supermasters division were both heavily lopsided games. Last year's champions, C2C Magic Wands defeated Millennium / Rock-it Pocket by four goals, and look to repeat as Supermasters Champions. In the second semifinal the Eldest Statesmen ran over Yellowdog 20-6. Tomorrow the Supermasters championship will take place in Ford Park at 12:30 pm.

Colorado's hustle and intensity led to an early lead and a one-goal halftime edge. They imploded in the third quarter with eight penalties and an early release that cost a critical possession. Colorado regained their composure and were tied with 13 seconds remaining after a team goal rebounding off of the pipe and the Colorado goalie on a defensive pass. Jackson Arnold had the game winner in overtime with 45 seconds left. Overall, it was a great semifinal effort by both teams.
