On Wednesday, April 12, Logan High Lacrosse had a heart-racing game against Fremont High School that constantly went back and forth. The teams were neck-and-neck up until the last second of the fourth quarter with the final score in Fremont’s favor, 15 to 14.
The first quarter went by with little urgency as both teams were warming up. There were a few goals scored here and there, but it was in the second quarter when things started to get heated. Both teams woke up and began to put up a true fight, and it became harder and harder for both teams to score.
“Overall it was a great game to watch, and it may not have turned out like we wanted, but I think the boys are just going to use this game as fuel to the fire in their upcoming games."
Fremont and Logan began to play more fierce and more violent to the point that senior defender Connor Leishman had to be taken out of the game due to a harsh abdomen injury. The referees started to constantly call penalties on both teams, including a few on the Logan High coach, which only created the atmosphere for a more intense second half.
In the second half, Fremont started to pull away leading 11-14, but with two minutes left in the fourth quarter, Logan tied it all up at 14-14. After the tie, both teams were anxious and scrappy, but with seconds left in the fourth quarter, Fremont ended up scoring the winning goal.
“Overall it was a great game to watch, and it may not have turned out like we wanted, but I think the boys are just going to use this game as fuel to the fire in their upcoming games,” said Sydney Nichols, one of the lacrosse managers.
