The Division I Stroll…

 

 

 

The D2 Stroll…

 

·         There has been some confusion over the Division II playoff berths.  For clarification, the Skagit and Evergreen conferences each get two berths while the other four conferences each receive three berths.  These berths are awarded based on conference games only.  Much of the confusion came about due to the last minute withdrawal of the Union program from competing at the varsity level and the subsequent last minute reshuffling of some cross conference scheduling to avoid some huge travel issues during the regular season.  Sportability was set up prior to these last minute shuffling and was not set up to track playoff standings based on conference games alone, so the standings available through Sportability are a tad misleading.  So, we have done our best to compile the conference standings and they are available to view here:         2012 Division II Playoff Standings

Parting Shots…

 

·         “Providence has four freshmen that are starters:  Aidan Walsh at defense, Paul Johnson at LSM, Matthew Morris at attack, and Cole Butaud in goal.  This is the first year of playing goalie for Cole Butaud and he is doing a fabulous job.  His save % is currently fifth best in Division II. Gavin Hardwick (Freshman) and Jordan Tindall (Sophomore) are excellent young middies for Edmonds.  They are starters and top scorers for this young team.”  – Nathan Morris

 

·         “An idea, each club should consider scheduling their last home game with a non-conference opponent.  It gives you a little more freedom to create a special night for your seniors.  It worked really well for us and hats off to Mount Si for being such great guests.” -Mason Rutledge (Everett Lacrosse)
