We played very well the first half of the game and into the second half but we lost focus for one quarter and they jumped on us. It just goes to show how fast a swing can happen in lacrosse and if you are not mentally prepared for it that it can take you by surprise. We did a very good job of moving on defense and limiting their scoring chances in the first half but some untimely turnovers and not able to clear the ball in the third quarter hurt us. We made some mistakes so we will watch the film and get back to work. The end of the season is upon us and we are gearing up for the playoffs. Once playoffs start it is the beginning of a whole new season in which we will be ready for.
