Darrow came out firing on all cylinders in this game, jumping out to a 4-1 lead at the end of the first quarter, and holding a 6-4 lead at the half. However, Darrow was not able to hold onto its lead in the second half as the Marvelwood offense began to find the back of the Darrow goal, ending in a final score of 8-15. Goalkeeping duties were split by Felix ‘18 and Jared ‘16, both of whom had solid outings between the pipes. Darrow’s scoring came from senior captain and attackman Luke with five goals, senior captain and midfielder Sam with one, Jared (playing midfield in the first half prior to his stint in goal) with one, and freshman attackman Charley, with what may have been the most beautiful goal scored by Darrow thus far this season, set up by a picture perfect assist from Jared. A definite highlight of the game defensively was the determined and exciting play of Vincent ‘18 and Tony ‘17 as long-stick middies. They gave Darrow a defensive edge in faceoff situations, and showed tremendous energy and intensity every minute they were on the field. Darrow's defense played solidly and cohesively, and featured several exciting upfield clearing runs by senior captain Louis and sophomore Jeffrey. As Coach Villinski told the team, the first half of this game was the best lacrosse the team has played all season, and despite the final outcome, this game bodes well for the continuing growth and success of the team.
