July 5, 2008 — 

One major upset in the Men’s Elite quarterfinals highlighted Day 7 at the Vail Lacrosse Shootout as AIG-LIVESTRONG defeated LaxGrip to move to the semifinals.  Several Independence Day quarterfinals were quite entertaining as Team 21, Reebok and Merrill Lynch all earned spots in Friday’s semifinals.

In the Women’s Elite division, the teams separated into Gold and Silver Divisions as they completed their second day of Pool Play.  7 teams moved into the Gold Division, including Dos Brisas Lax, a team that has been tearing through their competition.
