Final Day Results from the 2013 Vail Lacrosse Shootout

The last day of 41st Vail Lacrosse Shootout saw the Men's and Women's Elite champions crowned. In the day's first title game, heavily favored Team STX got out to a quick lead and never looked back to claim their first Women's Elite crown. The Men's championship will go down as one of the all-time best finals in tournament history. After trailing by a wide margin, Colorado-based All Out clawed back to win its first title in double overtime.

Men's Elite

Championship: All Out 16, Lacrossewear 15 (2 OT)
Lacrossewear got out of the gates hot and was leading 7-2 midway through the second quarter. All Out was able to stop the bleeding as they narrowed the gap to 8-5 by halftime. The teams traded goals in the third quarter, but with four seconds left before the end of the period, All Out converted on a fast break to further narrow the lead to 11-9.

All Out used the momentum of the late goal and came out firing in the fourth tying the game when Tournament MVP Nick Ossello (Notre Dame '15) won a faceoff and scored a two point goal on the ensuing fast break. All Out tooktheir first lead with under three minutes left in the fourth quarter and tried to kill the clock for the remaining few minutes. After an exciting defensive series to get the ball back, Lacrossewear's Kieran McArdel (St. John's '14) tied the game with 44 seconds left in regulation.

In the first, non-sudden-death overtime, All Out looked like it would be the victor after Billy Ward (Syracuse '14) scored first, but Lacrossewear's Reilly O'Connor (Georgetown '15) put home a game- tying goal with less than two seconds left to stay alive. In the second overtime (sudden-death), All Out's Billy Ward scored the game winning goal just 20 seconds in after Nick Ossello won the faceoff.
