The Cats finished their trip last week 1-2. After losing to Colorado the team turned around and lay a beating on the Huskers 21-2. Connor McCarthey (Mac) had quite the showing with 5 goals and 1 assist. Flower had 3 goals and 3 assists. Lamay and C-Ry had 2 goals and 2 assists each. The following game against Clemson was a much different game. Although the score was 5-2 the Cats dominated many aspects of the game. The boys came out and showed how New England lacrosse is played by laying down the hammer. Per usual, there were plenty of hits by Potter, Elder Gauvin and Joey. C-Ry joined the list as well with one monster hit. Unfortunately the hard-nosed play wasn’t something that West Coast lacrosse was used too and the Cats spent a great deal of time in the box. The Cats out-shot Clemson 34-28. I will tip my hat off to the Clemson goalie, he had some great saves. Although the game ended in a loss the Cats set the tone for the start of their PCLL season by being a physical, high energy team.
The best part of the entire trip was the realization that we have two jungle book characters on our team. The bickering between the two makes the resemblance even better:
Unfortunately, after as much searching as possible I couldn’t find a picture of Coach Small to do justice for Baloo, but I think the Mowgli photo makes up for it.
