The Islander Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse team kicked off their season on Friday night (3/8), hosting Kingwood High School from Houston, TX. In the first half of the game, Kingwood was gaining momentum on offense, scoring five goals. Fortunately for the Islanders, this was completely turned around in the second half with a defensive shut-out on their opponents. With fifteen saves by senior Joe Walsh in goal, Coronado’s offensive could take the field. Sophomore Reese Packard scored two goals, while freshman Neil Capin, sophomore Daniel Bell, and junior Devin Schulte each scored one by the end of the second half to go up 5-5. The Islanders would now go into overtime. With Walsh in goal and a strong defense, junior Casey Harris scored the winning goal to take a 6-5 victory.
“Winning in overtime is never easy to do and is all about character and belief,” shares Coach Alex Cade. “If those are our strengths this early in the year it will be a successful season.”
