The Lady Knights Lacrosse team ‘learned’ again last night that any TEAM can Win on any given night with a tough loss to the Boone Braves 14-9. Your Lady Knights once again struck first with 2 goals to take a 2-0 lead. Then allowed the Braves to climb back into the fray with 2 goals of their own by missing out on many great looks and not finishing. With the score tied at 2-2, all was not lost as the Lady Knights bounced back with 2 more goals of their own to take a 4-2 lead. The Lady Knights once again allowed the Braves to believe by giving up 4 goals with less than 2 minutes left in the half. The Braves would go to the half with their first lead 6-4. In the 2nd Half the 2 teams scrapped for 6 minutes with no scores until the Braves scored to extend the lead 7-4. Your Lady Knights, as if to finally say enough, went on 3 goal run to tie the score 7-7. But as the time wore on, the damage was done mentally and physically to your Lady Knights and the Braves were mentally and physically encouraged by being able to hang in tough with us as a powerful 11-2 opponent. The Braves went on two 3 goal runs in between a lone score by your Lady Knights to end the game.
Even though your Lady Knights dominated the Draw control 18-3, which means possession, which usually means Wins, it was negated by a poor TEAM shooting percentage of 29% compared to the Braves 67%! Your Lady Knights relearned the Golden Rule tonight that Possession Wins games – when you hand the goalie the ball then it is as good as a turnover. Every possession and opportunity is invaluable! The tale of this story is of missed opportunities!
We continue to improve with the lessons learned or relearned! The CHAMPIONSHIP train has hit a couple of bumps and the tracks ahead have to be fixed but yet the story continues.
