Last weekend Edinburgh traveled up to St. Andrews for a Preseason Scrimmage. Edinburgh joined by some player who had made the trip from Glasgow took on St. Andrews.
The game started out very even with both teams easing back into the lacrosse after the summer break. Edinburgh started to up their game during the second quarter with the Defense tightening up and starting to work better together and the Attack starting to moving well off ball and make some nice cuts. The first half ending Edinburgh and Glasgow 3 – 2 St. Andrews.
Edinburgh started the Second half firing on all cylinders with 3 fast break goals for the opening face off and the following restarts. Edinburgh started to cruise for the rest of the game playing very smoothly together and combining well as a team in Attack and Defense. Final Score Edinburgh and Glasgow 9 – 4 St. Andrews.
This game also marks the debut of several players for Edinburgh Bill Martin in Attack, Devin Oliver in Goal and Ed Fennell in Midfield.
Man of the Match was Ed for all his hard work in midfield during his first senior game.
Dick of the Day was Greg for having to be woken up half an hour after we should have left Edinburgh.
Thanks to the players from Glasgow City and University for playing with us also thanks to St. Andrews for hosting. We wish you all the best for the coming season.
