You would be mistaken though if you thought this would set the tone for the future of 3’s lacrosse. After sending his stick flying after their first goal, Freddie Fitzgerald clearly meant business scoring the first of his hat trick, despite deciding to remain on the pitch for the whole game. In a match where our play increasingly resembled lacrosse and not hockey, our fresher’s did have their moments. Gregor Rae’s cradling with the wrong side of the stick and Fernando Capelastegui doing a back flip from the face off being particular highlights and although James Clemetson darted everywhere with very impressive skills having picked up a stick just a week ago, it was our seniors who showed us the ropes. Harry Patchett's rolling nutmeg on their keeper was the highlight of his hat trick and Alex Taylor came up with an impossible goal while getting decked which was both beautiful and painful to watch. The fresher’s captains taught us some lessons too, with Ed Owen showing us how to run half the width of the pitch without the ball in a deceptive manouevre and Will Stallibrass proved that we haven’t missed out choosing lacrosse over football since you can seemingly play both in one with mens lacrosse. The first of many victories, well done boys.
