Lacrosse team faces defeat, struggles with lack of players

The boys’ lacrosse team was defeated by Lincoln High School, 3-18, on April 28.

Sophomore Aidan Cunningham scored two goals, and senior Skovran Cunningham scored one.

The Cavs had played Lincoln on March 20 and were defeated by them, 5-17.

At the first game the Cavs had 11 players (including one sub), but at yesterday’s game they had only 10.

Early in the second quarter, senior Michael Wong was hit in the stomach by a ball while blocking the shot. He was down for about 10 minutes, according to sophomore Adam Dean.

With Wong out of the game, the Cavs had only nine players on the field. However, Lincoln left all their 10 players on the field and didn’t take anyone out to make the game more fair.

“We gave a good effort throughout the game even with the score being what it was,” Dean said after the game. “(However) we didn’t stay on our man on defense and gave open shots on (junior) Brad (Petchauer).”

Petchauer attributed the loss to the team not clearing the ball very well and not staying close to attackers while they wound up for a long shot.

“We facilitated poorly on offense, but we played hard the whole game,” Aidan said.

The lacrosse team has not won yet this season.

The next game will be at home against Casa Roble on Friday, May 8.

The Cavs have forfeited twice to Casa Roble, on March 16 and on April 6, due to a lack of players.
