A nice quiet evening of lacrosse at Kinsmen last night, exciting games and no drama…
In the 1st game JustinP was in the net for Team Sharley, tanned but tired from his mid season Jamaica vacation. Early on, it looked the time off was worth it – Team Sharley took some time getting the 1st goal but kept up the pressure scoring 3 in the 1st and 4 more in the 2nd while JustinP turned back shot after shot. Team Lia was unable to get anything past Justin until well into the 2nd period, only adding a second goal at the end of the period. It looked like Team S would coast to an easy win…but NO, Team Lia started pressing, scoring again and again, closing the gap to a single goal. Maybe Justin was missing the Jamaica sun and expected the glare from the goal light to compensate – who knows? More goals from both sides and Team Sharley ended up barely eking out a single goal victory. Final score Team Sharley 10 – Team Lia 9. 1st half all Team Sharley, 2nd half a real barn burner. Great comeback by Team Lia that fell just a single goal short. Good game to watch!
In the late game Team Dirka was able to score early while Team Jacquie kept hitting post after post. Team Dirka led 3-2 after 1, but Team Jacquie was able to double their goal scoring to 4 in the 2nd while keeping Team Dirka to only 2 goals. The 1 goal lead was able to withstand some late pressure and the game ended in a Team Jacquie victory – Team Jacquie 8 – Team Dirka 7. Another pretty good game, fast with lots of back and forth scoring opportunities.
Going in to the last round robin in the schedule, it looks like the league standings are stratifying – Team Sharley and Team Lia fighting for the league championship while Team Dirka and Team Jacquie try to stay out of the cellar. Still pretty close and anything can happen.
