Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse Loses to Las Lomas

By Jack Loder

The boys’ varsity Lacrosse team came up short against Las Lomas on March 24 at Tam. A close and competitive game throughout, Las Lomas ultimately pulled away in the fourth quarter, winning by a score of 15-10. The loss drops Tam to 4-3 overall. (2-2 in MCAL)

“I’m encouraged to see how we battled out there, we hung with a pretty good team,” junior forward Liam Shore said. “That said, this was a winnable game and we need to capitalize on the opportunities given.”

And winnable it was. Facing a three goal deficit at halftime, the Hawks burst out of the gate in the third quarter, scoring four straight goals to take the lead. Seniors Arthur Berlinger and Hank Taft netted the goals during the run, along with a nifty shot from sophomore Sam Carlson finding the nylon.

Las Lomas was quick to respond to the burst, scoring three straight goals of their own to regain the lead.

“Our inexperience came back to bite us.” Berlinger said. “We got high on ourselves after starting the (second half) really hot, and we lost our heads a bit and gave up the lead. That’s a good tea, though, and I like the way we fought.”

Las Lomas owned the fourth quarter, outscoring the Hawks 4-0 in the frame to ice the game.
