Cambridge High School’s boys lacrosse team enjoyed a great competitive game for the start of the season taking on Te Awamutu College. At full time the score was 5 – 5, calling for a sudden death round where Te Awamutu earned a final goal to win 6 – 5. The player of the day was Blake Anderson.
“There were a lot of positives for our lads,” said coach Anthony Murphy. “We have some great ball-carriers who are strong offensive threats… Our captains (Damian and James) led by example and played at a high intensity for the whole game. James (in goal) made many great saves that kept us in the game and didn’t lose his head when he let some past him. Damian was a serious threat on the offense and played outstanding man-to-man defence… Blake Anderson really took initiative in using teamwork to set up a couple of fancy goals.
“There’s still a lot of room for improvement for the team, but we’re taking it one step at a time… Most importantly, I think they’re all getting involved and having fun.”
