Men’s club lacrosse to battle SMU Wednesday

With a 6-4 record and an undefeated clip in its division of the Lone Star Alliance Conference, the TCU men’s club lacrosse team is gearing up to face its crosstown rival Southern Methodist University tonight in Fort Worth.

The LAX Frogs head into tonight’s game coming off of a win over the University of Oklahoma on Sunday. The Frogs racked up the points with a final score of 12-6.

“I thought we all played really hard on Sunday, and it was a big win for us,” said junior defensive player Shea Pearson. “Now we just have to take care of SMU to move to the top spot in conference.”

The game will mark the second time the Frogs have faced the Mustangs on the TCU soccer field, where they lost in the spring of 2008. The Frogs also fell to the Mustangs last year, 6-8, in Dallas.

Victories against SMU and the University of North Texas would put the Frogs at the No. 1 spot in their conference, sending them to playoffs.

“I think this year we have what it takes to beat them,” Pearson said. “Our team has fought really hard for our wins this year, and we will fight hard for this one.”

The next game on the slate for the LAX Frogs is scheduled for April 12, against the University of North Texas Mean Green in Denton. That will wrap up the 2010 regular season for the Frogs.
