A good night of lacrosse – the first games of the summer doldrums turned out to be pretty fast…
In the early game, the lead changed hands numerous times with Team Lia pulling ahead late but Team Sharley clawing back to tie the game even later. With the spectre of last week’s non regulation last second loss haunting the arena, Team Sharley bore down on defense and prevented any last second shots that could have triggered the goal light and both teams left the floor with a single point. Team Sharley 9 – Team Lia 9. …and Team Sharley still officially unbeaten since the ownership change!
In the late game Team Jacquie scored consistently while keeping Team Dirka in check to run up an easy victory. Team Jacquie 8 – Team Dirka 4.
With the addition to Team Lia of another TeamRuss Intermediate alumnus (BrandonG) we have the setup of an interesting experiment in Masters team strategy – which team building strategy is most effective? – raw speed and youth (Team L) vs. the the high percentage long shot game (Team J) vs. the predominantly precision close-in stick work game (Team S and Team D) – should be interesting how this plays out over the rest of the summer.
