New postby ev00rams on Fri Mar 07, 2008 11:13 pm

Pasadena, CA - UCLA and USC will play a WWLL and WDIA game in the Rose Bowl on Saturday at 11:00am. It is the first lacrosse game to be played in the Rose Bowl Stadium. The game precedes the NCAA Division I games between UC Berkeley and Notre Dame at 1:00pm and the finale of the day featuring Temple and Oregon at 4:00pm.

The East West Challenge is being run concurrently with a 46 team high school tournament on the Area H fields outside the Rose Bowl Stadium.

The East West Challenge opened up play on Thursday night in San Diego at Torrey Pines High School. Torrey Pines was successful in their season opener when they beat La Jolla High School 10-4. In the next game UC Berkeley held on to beat Temple 10-7 after leading 8-2 at half-time. In the nightcap Oregon came from behind 7-5 at half-time and down two goals with 4 minutes to go to eventually score the tying goal at 15 seconds and the winning goal with 3 seconds remaining to upset 11th ranked Notre Dame.

It will be a day of firsts for women's lacrosse in the Rose Bowl. The WDIA game will be the first lacrosse game in the Rose Bowl Stadium. The CAL vs. Notre Dame game will be the first NCAA lacrosse game in the stadium. By the time Oregon plays Temple they will be the fourth PAC-10 school to have played in the Rose Bowl Stadium and it's on the same day. This is a record for number of PAC-10 teams playing in the Rose Bowl Stadium on the same day in any sport.

Additionally, the East West Challenge women's lacrosse event is the first women's sporting event in the Rose Bowl Stadium since the World Cup finals were played there on July 10, 1999. In that FIFA event the United States women's soccer team defeated China in penalty kicks after 90 minutes of scoreless action in regulation and scoreless action in extra time.

Cool! One wonders if the Notre Dame lacrosse team will fare better in the Rose Bowl than it's football team. It's been a tough Spring Beak so far for the Irish.

I'd rather have been in the sun in Pasadena than in some of the monsoon locales on the east coast yesterday. How was the turnout and did Jack sit in the front row???
