Fish out of Water
home to the States to finish off my summer here and now I can look back at my time spent up in the Great White North.
The game of lacrosse is a very blue collar sport in Canada, which is not a bad trait at all. It is built around hard work and perseverance. Your team Nike Kyrie 2 Blackout is your family and you stick together no matter what. Box lacrosse is a rough sport, very similar to hockey, and it seems to bring the team together; all pushing through adversity, all playing for the same purpose. You have to stand up for yourself but more importantly for the guys on your left and on your right and, as a team, you do whatever it takes to win.
It's been a few weeks since my last article and a few things have happened since then. We lost a tough series to the Edmonton Eclipse and watched as they move on to play the Edmonton Miners for the Provincial Championship. I came Nike Metcon 1 Colorways
this series, everyone expected us to bow out easily, letting the Eclipse walk to the Provincial finals. But it started with a 8 7 win in Game 1 for us. The first game the Eclipse lost all year came here and it got us started off on a good note. The next night, they came out firing, beating us 10 5.
With our backs against the wall now in this best of 5 series, we knew we had to come out on fire the next night. The first period was a shoot out, seeing nine goals in total with the Eclipse having a 5 4 lead going into the first intermission. The second period, which was our worst period throughout the year, did not have the same type of story. We came out scored two goals and held them to nothing, making the score 6 5 Raiders going into the third. With both teams scoring 2 goals a piece in the third the score was 8 7 with about a minute left. But with 45 seconds left, the Eclipse scored the tying goal and sending the game into overtime. The overtime period was extremely intense, as one mistake could lead to a pivotal goal. And that is exactly what happened. The Eclipse scored a breakaway goal to take the lead 9 8. The rest of the overtime played out at that score and had the Eclipse moving on to the next round.
After a full week off with only a few practices, they traveled down to our home arena for two more games. From here the games got more physical and much more intense. Game 3 started off with us taking a 4 1 lead at the end of the first period. But the Eclipse battled back to make it 5 4, in our favor, at the end of the second. Going into the third we knew we had to play tough D and put a goal or two in and the game was ours. We did just that, well part of it. We put a quick goal in to the start the period, but our defense could not contain the high powered Eclipse offense. They potted four goals in the third and took the game 8 6.
Fish out of Water: Seasons ending
Playoff lacrosse, in Canada, was some of the most fun lacrosse I have ever been apart of. It is rough and tough, with the refs being more lenient with their calls. But when it comes to this time of the year, it's do or die for every team. Going into Nike Kyrie Easter
All in all, this summer was an experience I will never forget. Playing a different sport and living in a different culture was one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. I strongly encourage American kids to try your luck playing up in Canada, it is not as easy as you would think but it will surprise you how Nike Zoom Pegasus 92
