The game against Fessenden was last Friday, and the Fenn lacrosse team came out firing. Early on in the first quarter, we found ourselves ahead by two goals. We were playing good lacrosse, both offensively and defensively. Then, when the whistle blew for the start of the second quarter, it was as if the varsity lacrosse team's legs had given in. We found ourselves tied up at the half, and the game went downhill from then on out.
The final score was roughly 11-5. We fought hard, but the effort was not enough against a tough opponent like Fessenden. We face off against the Fess later on this season, and the team will be sure to bring our A-game.
The next game, which happened today, was against Shore. We had not faced off against them yet this season, and we were not sure what to expect. After we got off to an early lead, it became clear that we were the stronger team. However, this did not stop us from battling hard. We kept our foot on the gas pedal, and accelerated.
The game ended in a 14-3 victory for Fenn. I thought everyone fought hard, and had an excellent performance. This extreme goal differential will surely be a motivation for Shore to fight hard next game. We face off against them later on this season.
So far on the year we are 1-1. The team for this season is looking strong. We face off against rival Fay next week. Stay tuned for more updates as the season progresses.
