The Phoenix set up for the next play as the Patriots gain possession of the ball.

On March 13, the Phoenix girls lacrosse team went up against the Park View Patriots in the second match-up of the spring season. The girls entered the field excited and prepared, ready to face their opponents. They fought hard throughout the game, but lost to the Patriots 13-4.

The game started with the Patriots pulling a quick six-point lead against the Phoenix. However, the Phoenix stayed strong and kept their energy up even as issues with the game officials arose. Keeping their heads in the game, the Phoenix scored two goals in the second quarter, boosting their spirits for the second half of the game.

Both the Phoenix and the Patriots fought relentlessly during the game while coaches and teammates yelled and cheered from the sidelines. Each time fellow teammates ran the ball to the goal, their teammates yelled words of encouragement. The team, however, started to lose spirit in the beginning of the fourth quarter as they were down 12-4. Nonetheless, they fought hard against the Patriots even when luck wasn’t on their side.

The Phoenix’s defense was a strong suit of the contest despite pressure from the Patriots. Sophomore defender Leyu Yonas noticed how tough the game was on her skills. “I think I played okay,” Yonas said. “Even though it wasn’t our best game, all I know is that we tried and are still working hard.”

The team continued to fight to the end but the Patriots took the win with the final score of 13-4.
