Landon Lacrosse 14 McCallie 6

In a pregame moment, one of the Landon parents suggested that the team could use some adversity and that they needed to experience what may be needed in a comeback. The Blue Tornado gave the Bears a scare and the home team surged back. The Tennessee boarding school decided that lax should be a priority and their roster includes players outside of the Volunteer State; they arrived at Bordley Stadium undefeated and #8 in their region according to InsideLacrosse.com.

Down by one and then two goals, being on the lesser goal side of the scoreboard for a total of almost twelve minutes, the Bears responded with a four goal and then a six goal streak. For the last quarter, some of the younger Landon boys got some experience against good talent.

=============================================================================================================================================================================================

The Blue Tornado got their velocity going early with goals at 9:47 and 7:39 by a player identified as a Denver recruit. Down by a deuce for the first time in 2015, Nate Buller beat his man for a goal @ 6:47. McCallie responded with their third goal at 6:31. Rob Adkins quarterback the Bears comeback with two consecutive goals @ 3:19 and then @ 2:31. Scoring symmetry occurred @ 0:22.6 when Nate buried his second goal.

 

AT THE END OF THE 1ST QUARTER – BEARS 4 TORNADO 3

 

Rob earned his hat trick when recovered the rebound of his own shot and scored with his second try @ 7:32. The visitors stopped this streak with a goal at 6:43. In response, Luke Kurtz passed to his linemate, Rob (his 4th goal) , who buried his shot @ 6:23. Colton Rupp continued the streak with a goal (another rebound score) @ 5:43. Ryan Pride passed the ball to Kennedy Dunn, who beat the McCallie goalie @ 4:38. Nate again showed his incredible vision and passing skill when he hit Koko Avedisian, who was standing on the far edge of the crease, and the senior middie crushed the net with his shot @ 1:53. Colton added to the Bears’ advantage with his third goal @ 0:17.

 

HALFTIME – BEARS 10 TORNADO 4

 

The home team continued its offensive onslaught with two quick goals in the 3rd period. Rob connected with Colton for a goal @ 11:04. Joey Epstein must have the same optometrist as Nate, for he found the young Mr. Buller @ 10:09.

The Tornado stopped the bleeding with a nice goal at 8:08. Kennedy ran a textbook alley dodge and scored @ 7:17. The visitors responded with a goal at 8:08. Then they scored an extra man goal at 5:51 (that may have been the first goal surrendered by the 1st team EMD). Soon thereafter Joey came from behind and found the far corner of the goal @ 5:38.


END OF 3RD QUARTER – BEARS 14 TORNADO 6

The last twelve minutes provided a learning moment for many young Landon players. Goals at 7:47, 5:14 and 1:33 narrowed the margin of victory, but Coach Bordley wants to develop game-hardened underclassmen when there is a call for “next man up”.
