On a sunny Saturday with a stiff breeze and a bite to the air, the Boys Varsity Lacrosse team traveled to K-Zoo for the Portage Northern Invitational. Their first game scheduled against Dewitt was canceled as DeWitt must have overslept their collective alarms and failed to show. The Eagles tried to stay warm and played the Portage Northern Huskies in the 2nd tilt of a 3 game tourney.
The game stayed close all the way through, but the ultimately falling in the end 6 to 4. The boys really struggled with penalties and maintaining possession in the 1st half. But seemed to get their feet under them a bot in the 2nd. Eagles goals were scored by Andrew Boakes with 1, Tyler Koeman with his 1dt High School goal, and Freshman Hayden Zimmerman scoring 2.Preston Bruinooge and Graham Kormash won the Hoover Award for this game sucking and 4 Ground Balls respectively, and Joey Hildebrand continued his winning ways at the Face-Off X at better than 75% success even while gimping through a deep thigh bruise suffered against Holland Christian
