On Tuesday night, I made my way up to Columbia’s Athletic Complex on 218th street in Manhattan (Inwood) from Brooklyn with my friend, and Southampton LC team captain, Christian Gould. I hadn’t been to any Gotham Lacrosse League games (we had played 2 and lost both by a goal or two I gathered) and the story had been slow starts and then big comebacks that just fell short.
Well, week 3 was no different as we started slowly. The only difference was that we didn’t so much make a furious comeback so much as make it closer. Whatever, our numbers were a little low due to work, injuries, vacations and other Summer things, and we still managed to get out and have a good time. Sometimes I feel really bad for the goalies in this league, because they do get hung out to dry quite a bit but whatever… they’re goalies. It’s what they signed up for!
Video is at the bottom… here’s what to look for!
:07 second mark – Dye job.
:09 second mark – visor!
:16 second mark – perfectly placed low to high rip from a Midd Kid.
:36 second mark – a super sweet btb goal from Marc “Digger” Digiovani. Dude can STILL ball at 32!
:40 second mark – nice longer clip of a shot, save, transition to a goal.
Around 1:00 in, we’ve got face off dominance. This happened ALL night for TeamItUp.com (the guys in white)
BEyond that it’s more goals and solid defensive plays. At the 1:56 mark I make a pass back to our goalie. It was literally the best thing I did all night. That’s how well I played. Oh well, I also threw a kayak and got called for a hold. C’est La Vie! I kind of made it look like we (Southampton in orange) won the game, but we didn’t. I don’t think it was even close really. Still fun!
