Dunwoody Lacrosse went 3-4 in games this past week, including a program sweep of Decatur and a varsity win against Druid Hills. Good job to all of our players, we worked hard for these wins. Three varsity games in one week is a tough task but as a program we were able to do well.

As for the game itself our varisty program realized the importance of this game as far as region standings. Our message to our team before the game was to respect our opponent, make them play our game or up to our level, and in games like this we should be able to execute and finish at will. With that being said we also mentioned to our team that these focus points are not just going to happen but are a by product of sustained hardwork and focus.

In all we played well with real positives that came from the game such as dominating the faceoff x, team offense and being able to run our new plays, defense commitment to communicating, and goalie play.

Things we need to work on is running our plays correctly, defensive clearing, matching up numbers on unsettled defense, and subbing.

In a game like this we are looking for effort/execution and when your number is called it’s your time to shine!

It was a real team effort as all players contributed on Saturday and looked good playing the game. Going forward we have a huge region game this upcoming Saturday. This week it is important to have good practices. We have a real competitive practice plan for the week paired with a team focus. Come Saturday, Dunwoody will be ready to play, earn another region win, and extend our varsity win streak to 3.
