Girls Junior Varsity Lacrosse, Girls Varsity Lacrosse · Timpview Women’s Lacrosse Team Play Memorable 1st Home Game

There are many differences between the girls and boys game. For starters, instead of four 12 minutes quarters the girls play two halves at 25 a piece and the face off is a bit different as well. These differences don’t hinder the game, in fact it makes for a more entertaining type of game, that puts a premium on defense. The fast pace in which the offenses are allowed to play make it tough on defenses. Speed leads to points so the defense must rely on a team effort to keep the offense at bay. On Wednesday your Lady T-Birds took on the Lady Wasps of Wasatch High School.

In the fist half,the lady T-Birds took a quick 3-0 lead before Wasatch settled and tied the game at the 18 minute mark. After re-establishing their dominance, the Lady T-Birds went back up 6-3 with some great passing and scored on a nifty “One Touch” shot.  The Lady Wasps cut into the lead with a one on one shot that beat our keeper to the top right corner of her net making the score 6-4. However the Lady T-Birds turned the pressure back up and scored two more goals, bringing the score to 8-4. However, before the horn sounded for the half Wasatch got one back, to head into the break down 8-5.

After the break the Lady Wasps came out firing on all cylinders as they scored 2 quick goals to cut the lead to one. After settling down, Timpview took one back to take the lead back up to 2 points. From the 13 minute mark on, the game was played on a sea-saw with both teams trading goals. However the defense found their footing, and kept the Lady Wasps out of the net until the 2 minute mark of the game. After that, the Lady T-Birds played keep away to kill the clock and finished the game with a 16-11 win. Congratulations to Coach Sara and our Lady T- Birds Lacrosse team for their 1st ever home win. GO T-BIRDS!!
