Trevor Yealy's goal from Will Meter in the first half marked the seventh time this season that the pair has connected on scoring strikes.

• Yealy had a team-best five shots on goal. No other U-M player mustered more than two on the contest.

• The assist was the first of Emil Weiss's career.

• Weiss also collected a team-high five ground balls.

• The 11-7 tally marks the second game in a row Michigan has lost by a four-score margin (vs. Harvard 11-7 on March 31) and the fourth time this season.

• The 17-stop effort for goalie Emil Weiss marks the fifth time this season he has eclipsed the 10-save mark, as he previously accomplished the feat against Jacksonville (15), Loyola (11) and Mount St. Mary's (10) and Harvard (13).


Michigan Head Coach John Paul
On today's game ... "Emil Weiss did a great job stopping the ball in the cage for us today. If we can even out those possession numbers we can stay in the game, but that's been our story all season. Our defense and Weiss played a great game, but we needed to do a better job on ground balls and clear the ball more effective. We also had some unforced turnovers on the clear, which is something we never want to have happen. Our man-down unit was great today."

On offensive improvement ... "A lot of what you're seeing is because of the situation that we're in. We have a lot of deficiencies that we have to overcome, and in order to do that we have to clean things up. We have to have better sticks and make better decisions and be the smarter team all day. "
