Coming off of a strong victory over Collegiate High School, the Tiger Lacrosse team started their playoff run on Thursday, once again playing Collegiate in the District Finals. St. X fans sat in silence as Collegiate performed in one of their best quarters of the season. At the end of the first quarter, Collegiate led 1-0 over the Tigers.
After a very long and loud screaming session by Tigers’ Head Coach Scott Howe, the Tigers pulled themselves together to start the second quarter. St. X didn’t waste much time after that as the Tigers quickly scored 8 consecutive goals (Roppel, Muldoon, Webb, Edwards, Miller, King, Gray) to head into halftime with an 8-1 lead.
By the start of the second half, the Tigers had suppressed the Collegiate attack due to Owen Peters, Austin Sweeney, and Caleb Grimes’ great defensive efforts. Through the last two quarters, the Tigers scored 7 more goals, being led by Will Edwards who had three on the night. In the end, St. X claimed the district championship with a 15-3 win over Collegiate.
The victory was made sweeter when Max Cartor, Collin Roppel, and Nick King were named All-District players of the 2014 season. Next up for St. X is the real playoff bracket. The Tigers start off with Ballard on Monday, May 12 in the KY Lacrosse State Quarterfinals.
