Lacrosse win over St John’s

Player of the day Bastian Banks (number 6).

Cambridge High School’s boys’ lacrosse team played an exciting and fierce game against St John’s College on Sunday, winning 9 – 3 at the Hamilton Inline Hockey Centre, with player of the day going to Bastian Banks.

“The lads’ loss last week didn’t faze them, they used it as an opportunity to see what they needed to work on and they really came out swinging this week,” said coach Anthony Murphy.

“They’re starting to learn that in offense you don’t have to have the ball to be a real offensive threat and help your team. This has meant we aren’t relying on our junior players to be our goal scorers – showcased this week by our player of the match (Year 9) Bastian, who netted three goals for us, all of which being the result of great teamwork and perfect positioning on his part.

“It’s great to see the younger members of the team stepping up to show that they must be respected as threats in offense, which is what I’m really trying to encourage this season.”

This Sunday Cambridge will face off against Hillcrest High School, 2pm at the Hamilton Inline Hockey Centre.
