SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah lacrosse team dropped its season finale on Saturday to Robert Morris, 16-12, at Ute Field and finished the 2021 campaign 4-7 overall.
Jordan Hyde, who rattled in a season-high five goals, drew first blood in the opening minutes for Utah before Robert Morris answered with back-to-back strikes for its first lead of the game. A trio of goals followed for Utah, courtesy of Hyde's hat trick at the 6:36 mark, saw the Utes take a 4-2 advantage before former Ute Jimmy Perkins found the back of the net to bring RMU within 4-3.
Hyde once again answered the call, this time on a pass from Cole Brams, giving Utah the 5-3 lead before Carson Moyer made it a 6-3 contest in favor of the Utes after the first 15 minutes of action.

The Colonials (7-5) regrouped and responded with three-straight goals to open the second frame. Branden Wilson was able to find Josh Rose to put the Utes back up 7-6 at the 12:18 mark. A back-and-forth action on offense ensued as both teams exchanged goals until RMU tied it up at 8-8. With 41 seconds remaining in the half, Wilson took it to goal himself and gave Utah the 9-8 advantage heading into the break.

Utah extended its lead in the second half, tacking on three more goals on behalf of Moyer, Ruben Santana and MJ McMahon, 12-8. However, with 4:29 left in the third, Robert Morris mounted its comeback and cut the Utah lead down to 12-10 heading into the final frame.
With momentum coupled with a 5-2 edge in face offs in the fourth, RMU continued to score and latched on six-straight goals while holding the Utes to just two shots on goal to spoil senior day.
