WINCHESTER, Va. – Junior Chris Frazier is in his first year of bringing us an inside look at the men's lacrosse program. As the squad prepares for its season finale tonight, Chris begins to take a longer look back at the season.
We beat Bridgewater last Wednesday to earn our second ODAC win of the year - we came out with huge intensity and it started very, very early as Tilghman Sanders took the opening faceoff all the way down and scored. After that we didn't look back, scoring 16 goals in the game to win our home finale.
Connor Bishop and Tilghman Sanders scored four each to lead us offensively. Our defense played very well this game as well despite essentially having no subs available.
Saturday's game at Guilford went a little differently as we seemingly won every statistical category except the most important one, the score. Unfortunately, we didn't shoot the ball very well and got some penalties at inopportune times, but we proved to ourselves that we could play with that caliber opponent.
Like most other seasons, we have had our ups and downs this year, but overall it has been positive. As of right now, our two conference wins are the most since joining the ODAC and our six overall wins are the most since 2009.
Stephen LaTona also became our first-ever ODAC Player of the Week. Things are only looking up under Coach Marshall and we are focused on doing things the right way.
Ed. Note: The six wins is the second-best season in school history and if the squad scores two points tonight (two goals or one goal and one assist), the 2014 team will hold the record for most points in a season.
Tonight we finish our season at Washington & Lee. They are a very good team but we are looking to finish our season off the right way and pull the upset. Once again this season wouldn't be possible without our coaches, family, friends, and all of our supporters. Thank you all so much!
