Men’s Lacrosse Copes With Back to Back Losses

Kaitlin Fenn, Staff Writer

The men’s lacrosse team handedly defeated Dublin 17-11 on April 19.

Then, on Friday, April 23 they scored a fairly easy win over cross town rival Campolindo, 12-6.

“The first time we played Campo we only won by one goal in the last seconds of overtime. Winning by six this time around shows we’ve improved a lot,” Mac Lavis ‘14 said.

Despite the three game win streak, the Mats couldn’t carry the momentum into their away game against Las Lomas, where they lost to the Knights 11-14 and moved to 7-2 in league. They still have a strong hold on second place in DFAL, only falling behind an undefeated Acalanes team, but their goal to win the league may be out of reach.

Last night, the team traveled to San Francisco to face a strong, non-league opponent, University.

“Their goalie is in the top five either in NorCal or State, so we knew we were going to have to place our shots and not force any bad ones,” Jack Murphy ‘14 said.

Although they started off the game strong and were only down two goals at halftime, they couldn’t pull out the win, losing 12-9.

The Mats are now 9-8 overall and will play Dougherty Valley at home tomorrow, Friday, May 3.
