OU women's club lacrosse team upset in first round of national tourney

The No. 2-seeded Oakland University women's club lacrosse team was the only higher seed to lose on the first day's play in the Division II bracket of the 2010 U.S. Lacrosse Women’s Division Intercollegiate Associates National Championships in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Thursday.

Southern Methodist knocked off OU, 17-16, just the second loss of the season for the Grizzlies (16-2), who hadn't lost since March 28.

SMU built an 11-6 lead late in the first half, but the Grizzlies got back in it before halftime, taking a brief, 15-14 lead in the second half, when Pontiac Notre Dame grad Haley Noonan scored with 12:04 left.

UPDATE: Despite three goals from Noonan, Oakland lost its consolation-round game Friday to UNC, 14-9. The Grizzlies will finish their season in the seventh round game at 8 a.m. Saturday.
