    Club lacrosse: Laxcats attempt to coast through California

    The No. 12 Arizona club lacrosse team travels to the Golden State this weekend to try to put a disappointing end to last weekend behind them.

    The Laxcats (3-1) take on No. 20 Chapman (3-4) tonight at 7, Loyola Marymount (1-5) tomorrow at 1 p.m., and finish out the weekend series at No. 25 UCLA (6-2) Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.

    Arizona head coach Kenny Broschart said the Laxcats have to play more efficiently for the team to have a successful road trip.

    “”We need to get going,”” he said. “”We are going to score a lot of goals, we just need to stay focused.””

    The Laxcats had a solid week of practice, concentrating mainly on the basics, said senior defensive midfielder Carson Parmelee.

    “”We concentrated on all of the fundamentals this week,”” he said. “”We had a good week of practice, but this weekend is going to be tough.””

    Broschart said that it is going to be a rough stretch of games this weekend, playing three tough teams, two of which are ranked.

    “”We really cannot look over anyone on our schedule,”” Parmelee said. “”We have to be just as determined against unranked Loyola Marymount as we are for ranked UCLA.””

    Both Parmelee and Broschart emphasized the importance of playing as a team this weekend.

    “”Chapman has two high school All-Americans, so they are going to be focused on the one-on-one game,”” Parmelee said. “”When we play we are going to try to beat them as a team.””

    Senior offensive midfielder Steve Luna said it is important to play in moderation.

    Broschart said the Laxcats need to become more disciplined this weekend in order to be successful.

    “”I know we are the better team this weekend,”” Broschart said. “”It is just going to depend on how we play and if we are able to cut down on our penalties.””
