InsideLacrosse.com: Though I described how impressed I was with the top talent on the NorCal Braves team, the Samurai actually held the Braves to a tie thanks to some second half defensive adjustment, especially from junior longpole Taylor Oswald (Chaminade/St. Louis), who was able to stop McGhee on two occasions at the end of the game. On the offensive end senior attackman Pat Anthon (Chaminade/St. Louis) put the team on his back with two late goals and an assist for the 5-5 tie with NorCal Braves. My favorite game of the day.
