CSU lacrosse improves to 12-0 after two convincing wins in Utah

317The No. 1 CSU lacrosse team remained undefeated after squashing division rivals #4 BYU (11-2) and Utah (5-6) in back to back games on Friday and Saturday.

Senior attack Kacy Carter stole the show Friday against BYU, netting seven goals and adding two assists to lead the Rams to a 16-5 victory.  The Rams turned around quickly and kept things rolling with a 13-2 win over the Utes.

“We really wanted to stop Austin Fisher, and we knew that Kacy would be the beneficiary of a lot of the attention that we gave to Austin,” BYU assistant coach Jordan Harris said. “He took advantage of playing our second and third defenders and had a great game.”

Carter’s career day displayed why the Rams offense can be so hard to stop.

“We are all one group on attack,” said Carter.  “Whether its Austin or Sean (Smith) or me scoring, it doesn’t matter. I just happened to get set up a lot by my teammates that I took advantage of it. We were so focused and so prepared to play that game that everything went our way.”

Fisher, who ranks 14th in the nation with 34 goals this season, was the focal point of the Cougar and Ute defensive game plans this weekend. However, slowing him down is easier said than done. Fisher racked up ten points over the weekend coming from five goals and five assists.

“We are all just working for each other so if it happens to be an assist or goal or even just a ground ball, I am happy to support the offense in any way,” said Fisher.  “This weekend I am just happy we all worked together so well. We really like to spread the wealth around on offense.”

Carter and Fisher’s modesty is reflected in the type of lacrosse the Rams are playing right now. While their depth and talent are the foundations for the type of season they are having, their ability to use their talents to play as a cohesive and unselfish unit is what has them at the top of the nation.

“We have a lot of senior leaders on our team, guys that were there for our run to the championship last year,” Carter said. “We know what it takes to be there and win it, so we are going to let our experience help the younger guys keep focused.”

The Rams are now in the final stretch of the regular season, with home games against Georgia, New Mexico and CU-Boulder ahead.

“Our mantra is to be great,” said Fisher. “We want to be the best we can be, so that comes down to playing the same game no matter who the opponent is. Whether its BYU this week or New Mexico next week, we are going to play just as hard.”
