Noteworthy events during game

The PV Sharks traveled to South Florida to take on a top 10 ranked Eagles team. A beautiful night for H.S Lacrosse and the game was physical and fast paced from the start. The Eagles took an early lead with a tough defense forcing several key PV turnovers to end the first quarter with a 3-2 lead. The Sharks made some adjustments and settled down to dictate the game from that point on and ended the first half with a 5-3 lead. The 2nd half was just as fast paced and physical as the first half with both teams trading goals. The Sharks used an aggressive defense and excellent goal keeping to finish the game with a tough 9-7 win. Sophomore PV midfielder Maddox Johnson led all scorers with 5 goals. The Sharks are now 8-0 on the season and have a home game against a very good Benjamin team on Tuesday. The Eagles fall to 2-3 on the season and have a game against St Edwards next.
