Concordia Edged Out of Bid For First National Championship

For the second year in a row a Southwestern Lacrosse Conference team entered a National Championship game undefeated and came away one goal shy of the ultimate prize.  Last year it happened to Arizona State in the Division 1 National Championship game.  This year Concordia entered the Division II National Championship game with a 20-0 record but fell to the Dayton Flyers by a score of 12-11.

After building up a 6-3 halftime lead, the Eagles gave up seven third quarter goals to the Flyers, and that proved to be their downfall.  A fourth quarter rally by the Eagles fell short and the Flyers went home to Dayton with their first National Championship.
