|O Club v Tribe – O Club prevailed, 11-3|
I don't yet know who prevailed in the quarterfinal game between Ryquin of Sacramento and the Olympic Club, the winner of which match will be the fourth semi-finalist in the Lake Tahoe Lacrosse Tournament, but we do know that the Adrenaline Tropics, West Sunset, and Dub C have been invited to the dance.
Here's a short backstory, relating to the 2013 semifinal teams. Last year (2012), Dub C (former WCLL MCLA players) took out West Sunset (almost all former SI grads) in the Quarterfinals, 9-7. The AdrenalineTropics (San Diego's hand picked entry from Adrenaline Lacrosse) then defeated Dub C, 8-6, in the Championship game.
The Tropics, sponsored by lacrosse conglomerate, Adrenaline, Inc., state on their website that they have won six tournaments in the last three years, while amassing an overall record of 62-3. In fact, the Tropics have both an A team and a B team! The A team's roster is shown below:
That squad is a handful for any team in the tourney.
If the O Club defeated Ryquin, thus making the semi-finals, it would mean that all four semi-finalists have been in the Lake Tahoe Lacrosse Tournament semis on multiple occasions in the past few years. Further, each of those teams has reached the finals in one or more years.
