Yeah it always does. There are other end of game issues we had. Most

notable was lack of ability to defeat a 10 man ride. It didn't seem like we adjusted. Obvious things you cand do.

- start with ball in fast shortsticks hands to beat the first man and cause rotation.
- pull 7 men back to defensive half of field so you can clear 7-6. Pull attack way away from cage to pull goalie way out.

bit baffling to me, we were on losing end of ride against both UNC and Maryland. I get the occasional failed clear against a hard riding team / 10 man. But several in a row which I think we had in each game reminds me of youth lacrosse where a team is just incapable of clearing.

I think even our last goal against Marlyand was almost a failed clear.
