On a rare Tuesday game, boys lacrosse lost to Stratton Mountain School. Stratton Mountain School is always a challenge as they always field an athletic team. We played a great first half of defense, holding SMS to four goals, but some costly mistakes in both transition and settled situations widened the gap on the scoreboard throughout the third quarter.
On the other side of the ball, our offense never really found it's rhythm, with the only two goals being scored by junior Ben Simon. The team is clearly showing improvement, but against a more skilled opponent like SMS it is imperative to put four quarters together with as few lapses in defense as possible.
We look forward to playing these guys again next week.
