Last weekend the Moreton lacrosse teams set out to play Withington and Stowe in a number of games throughout the age ranges. It was a very successful day against Withington as all teams won their matches, despite the horrendous weather conditions. The U12 team won their match 3-0, with the U13 team following suit with a 3-1 win. The U14B had a tight game but managed to pull it out of the bag, securing themselves a 6-5 win.
The 1st team set off strong, winning their game 15-4. All teams played exceptionally well, this is a tremendous start to the term and great practice for the upcoming nationals tournament.
The matches vs Stowe were almost as successful with three out of the four teams winning their matches by good margins. The U15 team played two matches, firstly against the U15B team from Stowe and then against their second team, winning both games 10-4 and 7-4 respectively. The U14 team won by 19 to 2 and the second team narrowly lost 7-4.
This weekend 8 teams made up of 110 girls accompanied by seven staff will travel to Queen Margaret’s (York) to play lacrosse.
