Good turnout last night – almost too many runners for Team Dirka – not enough…too many…never the RIGHT amount…sigh…
Considering the scheduling of the 7th game of the Stanley Cup finals last night, turnout for 3 of the 4 teams was surprisingly good and both games ended up being competitive and fun. Continue reading
Early game was a bit of a blowout but the late game was exciting and well played.
Sr. Werewolves made the trek to Fergus last weekend for their first tournament of 2019 and the results were surprisingly positive. A couple of new faces, some good and exciting games and fun times had by all.
Two pretty good games last night – if you can call ties …good. Back and forth, lots of scoring in one game, a relatively exciting evening of lacrosse.
3 teams with reasonable turnouts, 1 team struggling with numbers.
10 minutes to the start of the early game – 2 runners for one team, and 3 for the other …sigh… at least the goalies were there and dressed. After a flurry (dusting? trace?) of late arrivals the 8:00pm game got underway. Continue reading
A bit of a slow start – a last minute goalie cancellation, some frantic texting and both early teams showing up (barely) at the last minute…. a typical summer evening for LMHLL! In the 1st game, both benches had mid season numbers (3-4 spares) but early season scoring capabilities. Scoring was notably absent, the 1st period ending with Team Dirka leading 1-0 (must have been the goalies!). The 2nd and 3rd periods were a bit more exciting with Team Lia tieing it up late in the 3rd and then scoring a buzzer beater goal to win the 1st game of the summer 8-7. In the late game, Team Sharley was short benched with only 4 runners but Team Jacquie was not much better off with only 6 runners. With a couple of recruits from the early game both teams were able to continue with the end result – a win for Team Sharley 9-6. Week #1 is in the record books.
Next is Week #2 Wednesday May 15, 2019 Nichols Arena
Team Sharley vs. Team Dirka 8:00pm – 9:00pm.
Team Jacquie vs. Team Lia 9:00pm – 10:00pm.
There were some complaints that I hadn’t sent out an email reminder for last week’s game …sigh… too bad there wasn’t a “thing” where one could post information and schedules and rosters and updates so that anyone could access this information on an as required basis without having to worry about whether they are on the contact list or if their email client relegates lacrosse emails to the SPAM folder or….. Maybe somebody will invent some kind of “web” of information thing that would allow this sort of functionality…someday. I will send out one more mass email to remind registered players of Wednesday’s game but most future updates will be web only. If you don’t get an email reminder today or tomorrow please contact me at admin at londonmasterslacrosse.com so we can figure out any issues. Also, a reminder to those who have yet to pay – you know who you are! – please send an etfr of $175 to payment at londonmasterslacrosse.com. Thanks.
See you on the floor Wednesday.
Not one of our better tournament seasons but surprisingly our best ever finish at the Provincials….who would have thunk it?
A surprisingly warm arena floor displayed 2 well played games but the results never seemed to be in doubt – Team Sharley repeats as LMHLL Champions with a convincing 8-3 victory over Team Lia.
