The Warriors’ boy’s lacrosse team defeated the McEachern Indians Tuesday night, 9-4. The non-region victory was led by junior Will Wilson and sophomore Robert Woolfolk, with two and three goals respectively.
The first half of the game had few goals for both teams, with the Indians leading 2-1 at the half. It wasn’t until the second half that the Warriors took control of the game, and were able to dominate. They allowed the Indians to have two more goals, but continued on to outscore them 8-2 in the second half, ending the game with a 9-4 victory.
“We started out behind, but we kept our heads,” said senior Ryan Wilkinson, one of the team captains. “We got the ball going around on offense, defense kept on their man. We stayed focused all throughout the entire game.”
The boy’s team looks forward to plenty of practice time before their next game on April 11th against Dunwoody High School. The game will be played at DeKalb Stadium.
The same story couldn’t be written for the girl’s team however, falling 19-7 to the Lady Indians.
“We played pretty well but they were a really good team,” said Caroline Percy, a junior on the team. “We saw some things that we need to work on, such as our defense. We found that we were playing a little more uptight whereas we needed to stay back. They had a tight defense on us so we found it kind of hard to get in our fast breaks that we usually do. But I think we learned more about meshing as a group and how we need to play more as a team.”
The Lady Warriors will take on the Marist War Eagles on March 31st, at Marist.
