The No. 2 Rams led the No. 5 Chapman Panthers in a thrilling and close game on Monday night. The Rams shined as the team worked together and played the best they have against the very skilled Panthers to bring home an 11-9 win.
“This is one of the more complete lacrosse games we’ve played this year,” head coach Alex Smith said. “I thought we really came to play in all phases of the game and we showed that when we have poise and focus on both ends of the field that we are very tough to beat.”
At this stage of the season the players have are really connected on the field, leading the team to function well on all sides. This came in handy on Monday as the defense came together to shut down Chapman and transition the ball up the field.
“Chapman is a very good lacrosse team and I think we played really well tonight, particularly on defense,” Smith said. “There were still a couple of breakdowns that we need to fix, but Hayden Porter, Tyler Zabor and Patrick Sullivan are really coming together as a group. And when Andy makes some of the saves he did tonight, that really makes the whole thing work.”
At half time the score was tied 4-4 and the offense started to take the Rams into the lead. Smith was pleased with the way the offense valued the ball and didn’t cause unforced turnovers, something which has hurt them in the past.
In the last quarter the Panthers stayed close on the scoreboard, but a couple goals toward the end kept the Rams ahead and sealed the win.
Texas High School Lacrosse: The “23rd Annual Texas High School Lacrosse League” (THSLL) To Hold Div I And II Lacrosse State Championships On May 6-8, 2011 In Shenandoah, TX
The Woodlands Lacrosse Club will host the 23rd Annual Texas High School Lacrosse League (THSLL) Boys Division I and Division II Lacrosse State Championships on the weekend of May 6-8 at Woodforest Bank Stadium in Shenandoah.
The Texas High School Lacrosse League is over 77 Member School Programs strong in 2011, and is home to 143 Varsity and JV teams and over 3,700 high school student athletes across the State of Texas.
The State Championships will consist of the top four teams from both Division I & Division II Texas High Schools for a total of eight teams. These teams will be from the Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston areas.
No more than two of the eight teams will be from the Houston area and those that are can be traveling from as far as Clear Lake. Each team will consist of approximately 30 players (a conservative estimate) and at least two coaches. It is anticipated each team will bring with it a group of supporting fans.
Each team is encouraged to arrive on Friday afternoon as they will have scheduled practice time on the Woodforest Bank Stadium field on Friday night, May 6th. Four semi-final games will be held on Saturday during the day while the final two championship games will be held on Sunday afternoon. There will be other entertainment events for players of the eliminated teams to participate on Sunday in order to entice them to stay Saturday night.
The THSLL provides the environment for a positive experience and motivation for success – in lacrosse, the classroom, and in life beyond high school; helping build self-esteem and confidence; teaching teamwork and discipline; promoting pride and belonging, and offering an excellent avenue for exercise, competition, and recreation.
The Woodlands Lacrosse Association is the governing body for The Woodlands High School, Junior High lacrosse programs and our youth programs. Lacrosse in the state of Texas is not currently a UIL sponsored sport, so therefore it is not funded or facilitated by public high schools.
The Woodlands Lacrosse Association and the Texas High School Lacrosse League appreciates the support of the following organizations; Shenandoah Visitor and Convention Bureau, St Luke’s Lakeside Hospital, Harrow Sports, US Lacrosse-Houston Chapter, Texas Heat Lacrosse and Trilogy Lacrosse.
