The Concordia Lacrosse team earned their first victory of the 2018 season last night as they beat The Village School 10-5. This marks the highest goal total in school history for the Crusaders as the previous highest goal total had previously been 5. In the second year of having a program, the team has continued to improve every game and dominated the Vikings with better ball handling and overall athleticism and moved to 1-7 overall on the season.
Village (0-9) surprised the Crusaders and scored the game’s first goal at 11:42 of the 1st quarter by taking only 18 seconds off the clock. The Crusaders bounced back from a shaky few minutes to start the game when midfielder N. Villarreal (Sr.) took a pass from defensemen N. Barboza (Sr.) and beat the Vikings goalie to knot the score at 1-1 with 9:19 left in Q1. This opened the lid as the Crusaders ended up scoring two more goals in the next two minutes and held a 4-2 lead at the end of the 1st quarter.
