Our Golden Eagles Lacrosse team opens the season with a WIN against Circle City Conf. contender: Bishop Chatard – Trojans.
Next game is this Friday – Under the Lights – March 9th against another Circle City Conf. contender: Roncalli – Rebels.
During the March 6th game, free Hot chocolate and Coffee was available to all lacrosse fans during the game against Bishop Chatard. Grateful to the Boys Lacrosse parents.
Both teams started cold and was scoreless for the majority of the 1st quarter. First goal occurred with 3:04 remaining in 1st Q from John Blanchford. The Golden Eagles finally warmed up and scored the next 3 goals to make it 4 – 0 in favor to the GC boys. Second goal was a shot from Matthew Hackl, then third goal by John Bellflower.
The GC defense was solid for the 1st half and did not allow the Trojans to score. Forth goal was from Matthew Hackl in the 2nd Q. The 1st half ended with a score of 4 – 0.
The 2nd half started with the Golden Eagles committing several penalties and was constantly man down in the 3rd Q. The Trojans took advantage of the man down situation and scored 2 goals back to back in the 3rd Q. to make the score 4 – 2.
The GC finally played smart and got a goal in the 4th Q. by Chris Schaefer to make the score 5 – 2. John Blanchford scored twice for a hat trick and then the Trojans followed it up with a quick one to make the score 7-3.
The game ended with the Final score of 7-3
