Islander Boys Lacrosse Loses 11-5 Against La Costa Canyon (video)

On Friday, March 15th the Islander boys lacrosse team was matched up against La Costa Canyon (LCC). The Islanders were unable to connect on multiple occasions and struggled to get momentum going on offense and lost 11-5. One of the five goals scored was an own goal by the LCC goalie, who accidentally dropped the ball out of his stick and into the net.

Final Score

As the Islanders played through the night, their defense was doing a good job at holding LCC and caused some turnovers. Leo Salata was a main component in that fight, as he would apply constant pressure to LCC’s offensive players, check the ball out of their stick, pick it up, and give the Islander offense a chance to score. However, it wasn’t enough because the too many mistakes were made and the Islanders could not capitalize off of any of LCC’s weaknesses.

Even though the Islander offense wasn’t doing great against LCC’s tough defense, Luca Salata snuck by and scored a beautiful goal after receiving a pass from Landon Sutherland and immediately ripping it underhand, bouncing it into the net.
