The Lax Guys' National Boys' Lacrosse Rankings: May 25

The second half was completely different. St. Paul's forced more turnovers, won more of the face-offs and ground balls, and most importantly started putting the ball on cage with more consistency. This was one of the most atrocious goalie performances I've seen in a championship game. None of the BL goalies could get anything going (though Davey and Jennings didn't get much of a chance), and the defense surely wasn't making anything easier. At one point the defense let a SP attackman go right to the crease and score. Everyone knows BL's Achilles heal is their defensive unit, and tonight was no different. Congratulations to St. Paul's on their championship. It was well earned.
