Another week of pretty good games – and something a bit disturbing. All teams had 9-12 on the bench and the length of games seemed just about right – no one appeared to be (obviously) running out of gas in the last 10 minutes so nothing will change for another week or so (if ever).
In game one, Team Russ scored early and often but Team Juniors kept coming back to get close or tie. JKOW seemed to be the difference this week as he was able to score consistently enough to drag Team Russ over the finish line – final score Team Russ 15 – Team Juniors 12.
Game two was a (relatively) lower scoring game. Ian Gordon was the go to guy for Team Blair and was able to outscore Team Joe’s Little Chess leading Team Blair back to the win column after 2 straight losses though it was close right to the end. Final result Team Blair 11 – Team Joe 8.
Disturbing part of the game – right at the start of the 2nd period, after catching a painful shot on the wrist the period before, I distinctly heard (what I thought was) “shoot for his hand” coming from the Team Blair bench. Really? Doesn’t quite seem to be in the spirit of Masters HL lacrosse. Hopefully someone that was on the bench can clarify what I might have misheard? (apparently I may have misheard – see explanation in comments – G2).
Next week is Week #7 June 11, 2014
Team Blair vs. Team Juniors 8:00pm
Team Joe vs. Team Russ 9:15pm
