The Utah Utes came out on the field as fresh as their new game jerseys Friday, blowing past Montana 20-3 to begin the teams quest for a National Title.

Utah started fast, scoring less than a minute into the game from who other than All-American candidate Mark Manning.

Sophomore midfielder Mack Schwoebel took a drive down the left alley of the Montana defense drawing an extra defender and zipping a pass to Manning on the other side of the field.  Manning let loose with a blast from the right side of the cage twenty feet out, ripping the back of the net and setting the Utes rolling.

This season, a new team has added its name to the Utah Lacrosse Association lineup. Organizing a team from the ground up is a difficult task in any sport, but for Coach Darrell Robinson the first season of the Herriman High School Girl’s lacrosse team is a passion.

Coach Robinson’s love for the sport began years ago when his oldest son began playing lacrosse. Robinson followed his sons’ games all through high school and he is proud that his son now plays for Utah Valley University. The lacrosse roots spread wide in the Robinson family. After his son went off to college, one of Robinson’s daughters started playing, and that is when his involvement was really set in motion. He initially coached for the Bingham Miner’s Junior Varsity girls team, and he helped start their youth program. After Bingham, he started working with the Utah Lacrosse Association as member of the board on the girl’s division of the ULA. He was elected Vice President of the ULA in 2009 and ULA President in January 2011.

The BYU Cougars kicked off their 2011 campaign with a big win over Boise State in Provo, Utah on Saturday. The Cougars won 17-3.

BYU (1-0) and Boise State (0-1) were rusty out of the gate. Both teams were taking poor shots and missing the net completely to begin the game. However, BYU attackmen, Ted Ferrin, made his mark early, and showed why he was picked to be a captain for the Cougars. Notching 2 goals and 2 assists in the first quarter, Ferrin was part of every Cougar goal in the first quarter.
