Lancaster University’s Lacrosse team were defeated once again in the men’s lacrosse match which saw York winning the game for the sixth year in succession. The final score was York 17 Lancaster 1 leaving the Lancaster lacrosse team once again disappointed. Men
Both teams put up a strong fight at the start but the defence started to fall apart for Lancaster as the match progressed as the team quickly tired. It soon became clear that York were at an unfair advantage with Lancaster only having one substitute in comparison to York’s seven. Throughout the second, third and fourth quarter York bombarded the net with a string of goals in quick succession leaving the Lancaster team in a daze and York’s confidence growing as the match went on. Lancaster continued to battle it out until the end and their drive and determination cannot be faltered but unfortunately it wasn’t enough for them to pull the game back. The Lancaster attack attempted several occasions to fight back and gain four points for Lancaster but were unsuccessful on all but one of these occasions. Lancaster’s Johnny Mcgee flicked the ball passed the goal keeper and into the net after an incredible pass from team mate, Chris Grocott, across the pitch as well as brilliant defence from Lancaster’s Joe Clement. It was one of the best goals of the match and showed great team work from Lancaster .
After the match, Jack Higgins, the men’s lacrosse captain, said: “Considering we only had one sub, when York had seven subs which they could use whenever they wanted, I am really proud of my boys and how we played as a team but I don’t think we can ignore the fact that York out-classed us today”.
The final score was 17-1 to York and four points were added to York’s dramatically increasing lead.
