Commack High School Boys Varsity Lacrosse vs. Riverhead
Congratulations to the Commack boys lacrosse team on their win over Riverhead in a very exciting game that came down to the wire.
Another chilly day but at least no precip. Just a bit breezy.
For lacrosse I'm positioned at the end of the field with the sun at my back. If our goalie is on my end I'll move slightly ahead of him so I can catch any saves he makes and also get the defensemen. When the sides switch I'll move behind and to one side of the opposing goalie to get shots on goal.
Except when they're passing the ball around near the goal, most of the movement is up and down the field so shooting from the side doesn't buy you much unless you're trying to get a specific player and you know which side they'll be on. I'd much rather hang out in a far corner or behind (but not directly behind) the goal. Shooting from a corner into a bench is also a good idea to get the reactions of the players.
Next up softball if the weather holds. Got lots of catch up to do.
