Another hot night and 2 pretty good games to end the regular season for 2019…
Another hot night of lacrosse for the last games at Nichols for Summer 2019….
Another hot night at Nichols and with low bench numbers, everyone was struggling…
Despite some excitement and uncertain interim scores, the actual end results were as expected….
Werewolves were in Owen Sound last weekend, severely undermanned, but willing to make a go of it. 6-8 runners for 4 games is not enough (and painfully exhausting). A 3-10 loss to Brampton on Friday night set the tone for the weekend. Saturday morning, a quick 4 goal start allowed the Wolves to do some serious energy management and helped by GordC’s lights out goaltending led to an unexpected but well deserved victory 4-3 victory over Barrie. Unfortunately the Wolves ran out of gas Saturday afternoon, losing 1-13 to host Owen Sound. After some well deserved Saturday evening recharging with carbs and liquid carbs, the Wolves made a determined effort but were unable to score Sunday morning, losing to Whitby 0-8. At least no one expired on the floor!
2 points for the weekend – more than what would have been expected considering the number of players. In any case, on to Niagara in 4 weeks.
Go Werewolves of London…..AROOOOOOH!
Whoa! both games decided with less than a minute to go AND Team Dirka with their 1st victory of the season!
Despite the torrential rain squall it was still a hot night at Nichols and the game results mirrored the temperature…
A hot night at Nichols last night – a couple of close games to tighten up the standings.
Week #8 was more of the same – Team Lia won again and Team Sharley and Team Dirka struggled for numbers….
Werewolves headed down the road last weekend to Brantford for the 2nd tournament of the year. Marginal turnout – 8 runners for the Friday night game vs Brampton – a good game none the less for the number of runners on the bench – Brampton 9 – London 4. Saturday morning vs Windsor – 3 players back in London for minor HL wrapup, 3 new players – it was enough for the Werewolves 2nd win of the year over Windsor – London 6 – Windsor 2. 3 players back from London for the afternoon game against Huntsville – a weak start and Huntsville is ahead by 3 goals at the half way point but London wakes up and keeps pace for the 2nd half – final score Huntsville 7 – London 4. On to Sunday morning for another game against Beaches – …sigh… likely looking for revenge for their 1st ever loss to London in Fergus. London scores first , and then again AND AGAIN! With London leading 3-0 the clouds of the apocalypse start to gather. Beaches scores a couple to tie it at 3 at the end of the 2nd period and the fans start to worry. At the start of the 3rd London quickly scores 2 before Beaches can reply. London scores 3 more to open a 3 goal lead and Beaches can only reply with a couple near the end of the game. Werewolves have beaten Beaches for the 2nd time ever – in successive tournaments! There were a LOT of dark clouds gathering and flashes of lightning – is this really a sign of the end times approaching? In any case another .500 weekend for the Werewolves, fun lacrosse, good times and SUPER results! Owen Sound in mid July will be the proof of the prophecy!
Go Werewolves of London ….. AROOOOOOOOOO!
