In the first of a back to back series, Christian met up with Petoskey Lakers at Spring Lake. In a running clock format, the Lakers got off to lead 5 to 2 at halftime. They added 2 to make it 7 to 2 before the Eagles went on a run of 4 goals to bring it within 1. Christian took risks in an attempt to tie the game up, but were foiled as Petoskey caused an untimely turnover and converted to earn their victory. The leading scorer was Connor Konynenbelt with 3 goals and Ryan Betts with 2.
The Eagles met up with Traverse City Central to find surprisingly decent weather on a grass field. In the second of two games and a year after giving the Thunder Squirrels their first loss in four years the Eagles were not playing their best lacrosse. Trailing at halftime 1 to 2 and eventually 1 to 5 in the second half, they made a nice run to bring it within a goal, but the risks taken to try to tie the game in the last minute ended up costing another goal as the final score was 5 to 7.The Eagle’s leading scorer was Ty Hayes with 2 goals, while Chad Teitsma and Ryan Betts each had 1 goal and 1 assist.
The Eagles lost to Catholic Central. Eagle goals were scored by Allison Greeley (2) and Margaret Hosack. Goalie Lydia Abma had 8 saves.
The varsity team tied with Rockford 0-0.
