In the first matchup between these two teams in 2016, ODA’s Ian Martin scored a school-record 10 goals to lead the Thunder to a win over Riverview, 12-8. At the beginning of the first quarter in this first 2017 Season matchup, it seemed like Deja-Vu, as Ian Martin scored three out the Thunder’s five goals to take an early 5-3 lead. As the game progressed, Riverview tied it up and then pulled away from the Thunder in the 3rd quarter, with a five goal lead. ODA trimmed the lead to two goals with just under six minutes left in the 4th quarter, but the Rams scored two short-handed goals to put the game out of reach. Excellent work by Rhys McRobb on faceoffs, our entire defensive unit for making the necessary in-game adjustments, our tenacious Middies, our patient Attack, our sure-handed Goalies and to our entire coaching staff. The Ram scoring was lead by Seniors Jesse Clark with five goals and three assists, Cole Hautamaki, four goals and an assist and Sophomore Spencer Brooks with three goals and two assists.
The Bradenton Herald has an interesting article and video on ODA’s Varsity Lacrosse team, where the team states their main objective is to beat Cardinal Mooney this season and win the District Championship. After tonight’s game against the Rams, they might need to add another team to beat in order to reach their objective. Check out the article here:
