Boys lacrosse is defeated by Sierra Canyon

Harneet Arora, Staff Writer

On Thursday March 15, West Ranch boys lacrosse lost 6-8 to Sierra Canyon.

“We played well, but we had too many turnovers. We had about 20. That hurts. Can’t turn the ball over like that,” said Coach Borsos.

West Ranch struggled to get a strong start trailing three goals to five at the end of the first half, but the beginning of the second half proved instrumental for the team. Goals by Vince Buyco and John Matkin brought the team close to tying up the game.

“They had a really good goalkeeper. We had 33 shots and we just didn’t get them in the right spot,” said Coach Borsos.

West Ranch’s two goals were quickly followed by two opposing goals and tough defense. With this, the Wildcats struggled to make a comeback. Three shot attempts within the last minute of the game were hopeful, but the Cats came just short of finishing.

“We can work on shot selection,” said captain John Matkin. “We had all these shots that would raise the score, but we just couldn’t finish.”

Despite the loss, the Wildcats put up an impressive effort and played well with all the contact and aggression of the opposing team. Join your boys lacrosse team in their next game on Saturday vs Palisades at 9:00. Good luck Cats!
