Fall Ball is Back!
The first week was dominated by DEFENSE, in my opinion. Most teams had little time to prepare or pick their teams.
For this reason, offenses did not display the crisp passing, execution of plays or cohesiveness that will be displayed as the season progresses.
Even though that was the case, there was still exciting field lacrosse.
Being associated with Niagara, I can only comment rationally about their games. Defense was prominent as the team allowed only a total of 11 goals in their 3 games with one of them in the dying seconds of their game with Oshawa which tied the game at 5-5. Niagara won their other 2 games ( Orangeville and Brampton ) to end up with a record of 2-0-1. Other scores and records would be only hearsay.
Kitchener as usual ran a smooth event and the only thing that was lacking for me ( a statistical person ) would have been a scorer's centre where results of all games were displaced.
To all teams... well done and see you all next Sunday.
