The FloridaLacrosseNews.com coach’s poll “game of the week” just may have been the game of the season!

The Lake Mary Rams controlled the ball and the pace for much of the game but outstanding goalie play by Connor Peaks (Delaware) prevented Lake Mary from putting away several opportunities in the last minutes of regulation

Ponte Vedra was led by Brendan Francis (Navy) who was involved in a majority of PVs goals.

Josh Reedy led the Rams with two goals while face off man Mark Lang was key in creating possessions for the underdog Lake Mary team.

Senior defenders Kyle Swink and goalie Davie Moore (Saint Leo) along with sophomore defenders Alec Quint and Evan Griffiths limited the PV offense to two goals in the second half.

The Rams jumped out to leads of 3-1 and 5-2 before the Sharks rallied to tie the game at halftime.  Brenden Francis set up the game winner with a feed to Anthony Pradella (Reinhardt University)  who stuck a behind the back shot with approximately one minute left in the first overtime.
