LANDON LAX 8 CORONADO 2

The Bears schedule the CA perennial powerhouse Islanders, coached by Landon Alumnus and ND All American Goalie, Alex Cade, every spring and every year, the boys from San Diego’s delightful island test the home team. It’s also always interesting to see whether the father of Adrenaline Lacrosse will acknowledge that his hometown weather is different from his West Coast residence and put shoes on. He didn’t. The Bears prevailed 8-2.

In recent games, the Bears might score early, but did add to that initial advantage. Today against the, Charlie Schnider got his boys going with two exceptional passes to Matt Potolicchio(10:56) Peter Laco (3:33), both of who buried the balls for nice goals.
