On senior night, the Lapeer Lacrosse team took a hard fought but tough loss to visiting Oxford by a score of 7-6.
Brian Morris – 3 ground balls
Tyler Weber – 9 ground balls, 3 caused turnovers
Chad Buike – 2 goals, 2 ground balls, 2 caused turnovers
Branden Heusted – 2 ground balls, 5 of 14 on faceoff
Danny Hersha – 2 ground balls
Blake Burton – 2 ground balls
Travis Fox – 3 goals, 5 ground balls, 1 caused turnover
Dylan Fletcher – 1 goal
Riley Newlin – 11 saves
This one stings because it was our senior night and it was a hard fought game on both sides. We had our opportunities to take the lead or tie the game but couldn’t capitalize on our opportunities. I know the team isn’t happy about this but we have got to use this to our advantage and learn from it to get ready for playoffs. We drew Midland in our first round game and know that it will be a tough one but we have got to stay mentally focused and ready for the upcoming second half of the season. I want to thank our seniors of Brian Morris, Tyler Weber, Chad Buike, Branden Huested, Danny Hersha, Blake Lesh, Jack Vangel, Travis Fox, Dylan Fletcher, and Riley Newlin on their senior campaign and all the hard work they have put forth for the program thus far. But I know they are itching to get back to work and to fight for the chance to play in the playoffs past the first round.
