BYU at MCLA National Championships

Tuesday was the BYU Cougars first round game with Boston College (Eagles) - Brent mentioned it was a very hard defensive game... but the Cougs brought it home in the end with an 8-7 squeaker. Some of the other Parents mentioned how nerve-wracking it cane be in a tight game. I was teaching in Orlando and couldn't make the game. But flew in late last night after teaching some security sessions at TechMentor for the day. Today I picked up Jill from the Airport then we got to watch the Quarter-Final game with Simon Frasier. The 'Clan' as they are called would have had an un-defeated season if it wasn't for the loss to BYU earlier this year. So they were raring to go...

It was a real close game with SF up by one, up by two, up by one... then finally we were able to tie it up. It was then Brent put the 'hurt' on a guy with a HUGE body check... one of the best he's ever done, picked up the ground ball and ran down the field (Almost falling as in the picture below) this was a real change in the Momentum of the game and BYU was able to finish 10-9...
Brent also was hurt in the game (see photo) where he spread his left leg out too far during this hit. He was carried off the field (well - finally took his helmet and stick from the trainer and walked under his own power off the field)

And it was very nerve-wracking to be watching on the sidelines in such a close game.
Brent Really Enjoyed the Win with BYU's Goalie - Christian Kikumoto

Now BYU gets to play next in the Semi-Finals, Friday night at 7:00pm in Texas Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys) - and if they beat #1-ranked Michigan they'll be playing again Saturday night at 8:00pm also in Texas Stadium!

Thanks Keith for the update on the lacrosse games. We hope that Brent is okay, no permanent injury. Glad that you and Jill are there to support the team, as you have all year. I finally got my BYU Lacrosse ball cap. I had one made at HAFB on Tuesday, just in time, as the season ends. This Korean guy has a hat stand and I always say hello to him. He has those neat work gloves. Be safe and enjoy the games.

Those pictures really made me get teary-eyed. I am so proud of Brenters and wish we were there to watch him play for the last time for a couple of years!

Whow! those were terrific photos and a good story line about the games. I pray Brent is doing okay with that leg injury. It looked like it hurt a lot. I am so happy you and Jill could be there to watch him play. Dad was thrilled to get his hat made now that the season is over. Be safe and hope they wine Fri. and Sat. both!!
