again the Blue came out on top defeating Chapman 12 10. The Panthers rallied late in the fourth quarter but unfortunately was not enough to topple the No. 1 seed and exact revenge.
One of the keys early on for ASU was the ability to clear with ease and also senior middy Ryan Westfall beating SFU goaltender Dean Stewart five times for goals in the first half alone, four of them coming in the second quarter, and would go on to net three more in the second half. His brother, Tyler Westfall, was just as much a threat as the senior attack man scored four of his own in the contest. Defensively, the Sun Devils long poles switched early on from playing one on one coverage to more of a zone perimeter around the crease. The results showed the Clansmen having to shoot more often from the top of the box, rarely finding anything in the middle, and only to be denied by goaltender Dylan Westfall (sibling number three) constantly when shots were possible. Westfall had a phenomenal first half stopping 13 shots on goal, and adding 11 more in the second half.
The Sun Devils showed early on that they came to win in the Mile High City, opening the scoring off a rifle from James Reap and putting shots on net constantly, as did the Clansmen. And up until the end of the first quarter, the game appeared evenly matched; both teams were putting shots on net and minimizing mistakes in the passing game. That would soon change in the second, as Simon Fraser quickly found themselves outmatched and struggled to keep the ball out of their defensive zone. A couple mistakes in the SFU clearing game began the slow tilt into ASU favor, scoring five times in the quarter compared to the Clansmen two. By the second half, it was all the Sun Devil game.
The Arizona State Sun Devils will appear in their first ever national title game Saturday night after pummeling Simon Fraser by a final of 19 9 in the MCLA semifinals.

As for the Clansmen, they struggled often with the 1 on 1 coverage ASU used offensively, capitalizing on SFU exposed weakness when isolating a single defender to work around on one side of the net. Offensively, SFU strategy to counter ASU long pole zone coverage was finding the feed from the back of the net and Nike Sneakers Shoes Online dumping point blank, which paid off a handful of times for Adam Foss. But aside from winning the majority of the faceoffs, the Clansmen had very little to be positive about in the game.
Chapman would strike first, taking the lead 59 seconds in thanks to senior midfielder Blake Whitcomb from the top of the box. It would be short lived however, as early on Michigan showed what they do best, pressure and score. The Wolverines pressed on the ball often with multiple man coverage, causing Chapman to make critical errors on the clear and in turn gave the Wolverines opportunity. Michigan would score four unanswered goals before Chapman long pole Matt Walrath earned back to back goals just five seconds apart, one of which was in a man down situation. The Wolverines in retrospect would quickly neutralize the two goal deficit back to four with two of their own by Thomas Paras and David Rogers.
