The Watkins Mill boys lacrosse looks to hop on the winning train tonight, April 4. The team is coming off of a three game losing streal, and look to smack the Screamin’ Eagles out their nest away at 7 pm.
Boys lax went to war with the Gaithersburg Trojans Thursday, March 30. Watkins Mill came out strong and kept it close during the first half, but that shifted when the Trojans outscored Watkins Mill 10-4. Although the ‘Rines put on a strong offensive the boys fell short 9-18.
“Don’t forget how to play lacrosse, that’s what my coach always tells me,” Quacoe-Dameshie added. “You don’t have to always stick to the rule book, you have to go out there and have fun….if you go out there just thinking you’re just gonna do this, it just doesn’t work out like that. You have to go with the flow.”
Offensive highs included junior Royce Fianko netting a hat trick. Other goal scorers junior Griffin Borman, and seniors Tommy Dawson, Leo Astorima, and Leo Molina. “We’re getting better we just need to work on our defense and still a couple things on offense…. We just need to fix all the little mistakes,” Molina added.
The Wolverines played the Poolesville Falcons at the Mill on Monday, March 27. Nothing worked for the ‘Rines, offense and defense were not looking like themselves. Their lack of communication cost them the game with a score of 15-2.
“Not everyone played as a unit, everyone was playing for themselves,” Quacoe-Dameshie said. “There was not that much communicating between players….even more mistakes were made and that cost us the game.”
Watkins Mill boys lacrosse team had their season opener against the Walter Johnson Wildcats on Friday, March 24. The team came out strong against a very good team, playing very good defense throughout the game, but it was not enough to hold the Wildcats. The Wildcats were able to beat out the ‘Rines 14-1.
“We were doing pretty [well] on the clears, we also moved the ball around..we were able to hold time and run down the clock,” Fianko said.
Even though our boys lost the game the team “did better than expected. We actually played together as a team and for our first game it wasn’t too bad,” junior Kelvin Quacoe-Dameshie said.
