Our boys LAX is seeded #1, but they certainly didn't start like it yesterday. Down 3-0 in the first quarter, they came back to within one at the half (down 4-3).

But in the second half they shut down the other team to prevail 6-4.

6. He actually scored here, smothered by the defender, who fell on top of him.

Sweet series! Were some at night or was the background just very shady? Do you find that it gets harder and harder to capture the boys shooting at the varsity level? Our guys pass so fast that I often miss the actual guys shooting, even if I think I know what's going to happen...

Thanks, shady background, game started @ 4:30.

Absolutely, I miss a lot of shots due to a quick pass out to the circle.

Even the girls, our top shooter got the pass and before I knew it had shot behind her back, I wish I had gotten that one.

The behind the back shots are definitely crowd pleasers. Bedford had one of those just as they started to turn the game in their favor. The crowd went ballistic! Fortunately, we could always respond with just one more...

Nice shots and thanks for posting. Some of your shots, 4 and 5, seem to be shot from behind and slightly to one side of the goal. I positioned myself there for some local lacrosse shots and momentarily lived in fear of an errant shot. Add "brave" to your list of qualities.

Nice set of images Chris, looks as though my schedule has opened up at the right time!! Hoping I can shoot a 'Gonk semifinal and final this week. Let alone bring back your 85 1.4....

Thanks Bobby, yes indeed, I'm about 10 ft in from the corner along the baseline, that's about as far as I dare...I have been nearly hit by some outside shots.

Thanks Geoff, Tue 5PM, Wed 7PM, Foley.
