PCHS girls’ lacrosse: JV squad goes 3-1 in Salt Lake City
March 23, 2012
The Park City High School girls’ junior varsity lacrosse team traveled to South Salt Lake last weekend for the Utah Lacrosse Association’s Gathering of the Tribes Tournament. The tournament consisted of a four-game round robin with two pools. The team in each pool with the best ratio of goals scored versus goal scored against would advance to a championship game.
The JV Miners had a record of 3-1 in the round robin with a goal ratio of two-to-one (35-17), which helped advance them to the championship game against Bingham. The girls were tired and ragged from four games in two days, but rallied and stepped up for their third game of the day.
The game was tight as each team went traded goal for goal throughout the two halves with the score deadlocked at a 9-9 tie at the end of regulation. In sudden death overtime the girls played with as much fire and intensity as they had throughout the tournament, but unfortunately, it was Bingham’s game to win, 10-9.
With anguished deliberation on their faces, the girls left it all on the field playing their hearts out giving a go at the championship everything they had despite being fatigued from the long weekend of lacrosse.
At the awards ceremony, where the team received their second-place trophy, Megan Lee was honored as the team’s MVP as she dominated draw control and scored over a dozen goals in the five games, with many assisted by captain Mina Berglund. The girls will have another shot at Bingham on April 3 at home, where they hope to solidify who in fact as the better team.
