Petaluma, CA – The 101 Boys lacrosse club finished their summer season this past weekend at Morgan Hill at the West Coast Showcase. Despite the extreme temperatures the teams had a great time and competed on the field.
101 Lacrosse had five teams in action on Saturday. The 12U Black team battled all day long and despite starting 1-1 with a win over SixFifty and a loss to Team Washington, they were not satisfied and needed to add one more goal to their record as they fought tooth and nail to a tie with Booth Lacrosse. The team would go on to win their Sunday game against ADVNC Southbay in dominating fashion before finishing with a tough loss to SixFifty team they beat the day before. With a short bench and tired legs, the players never gave and battled all weekend long.
Sonoma 12U Gold shot out of the gates like a cannon starting the day 2-0 before dropping their third game. On Sunday, they picked right back up where they left off and were able to take care of business against the Chauncey Boys to bring them into a three-way tie for first. With the win in their final game, they finished tied for 1st place and a 4-1 record! Congratulations to the 12U Gold team on such a tremendous performance as they have shown vast improvement throughout the summer season!
Sonoma 14U Black came out fighting like cats and dogs and despite going 0-3 on Saturday they had multiple close losses. The team got the needed win on Sunday morning over the Spanish Springs Cougars. They finished that up playing the best half of lacrosse all summer long before falling in their final game. Despite the record, the team showed resilience but more importantly a vast improvement from the start of the summer until the end. A lot of bright spots as they head into the fall for this group!
San Francisco HS Gold began Saturday with a tough loss but rebounded with a dominating win before going into the final game of the day. A back and forth affair left the game tied with just a few minutes left when SF Gold was able to stick one to go up one. However, with just 30 seconds left, Booth was able to tie and the two teams tied to finish the day 1-1-1. SF Gold bounced back and grabbed W’s in both games on Sunday and finished the weekend 3-1-1.
Sonoma HS Gold opened up against the Washington Ketas, falling in a 4-5 nail biter. The team rebounded in their final game on Saturday, posting a 1-2 record before bracket play on Sunday. The team staged a multple goal rally against the Warhawks but did not have enough time and lost their opener on Sunday, 8-10. The team battled all summer and the players grew tremendously as a unit. Keep an eye for this bunch in the fall!
