An SGR was submitted on this game but we were waiting for the Gulf Coats stats for the submission in order to publish, but then I was shown the link to the Riverview Lacrosse website (riverviewramslacrosse.com) and this terrific game coverage of the game and I decided to just link to this, since the statistics are shown and the recap is far more in-depth.

There’s also some great video too!

 

Excerpt:

The Riverview Rams Varsity Boys (5-0) remained undefeated, with a huge district win against the previously undefeated Gulf Coast Sharks (4-1).  The Rams jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter and never trailed for the remainder of the game.

With 9:12 remaining in the the 4th quarter, the Sharks cut the Rams lead to one, 8-7, but Riverview answered with another goal within 6 seconds after Senior Tyler Horiuchi snagged the ground ball on the face-off, fed it to Junior Dylan Alexander, who quickly passed it Sophomore Minford, who snapped it to a wide open Ken Kaiser who double-pumped his shot and slipped it past the Shark’s Shields for the score.  That perfectly executed goal was a precursor to the Rams scoring 4 goals in-a-row before the Sharks scored their last goal with 3 seconds remaining before the final horn.
