Lacrosse tournaments don't get much more exciting than this! Somers Senior girls played competitive teams from Canton, Avon and Wallingford at Fisher Meadows in Avon, CT on May 22. Somers was one of four teams to advance to the semi-final round. In the semi-finals, Somers scored a game winning goal in the last 10 seconds to advance to the finals game against Madison SR girls. In the finals, the score was close with Somers leading 3-2 and five minutes remaining. Madison rallied and scored 2 goals to take a 5-4 lead with one minute remaining. Somers scored with only 5 seconds left on the clock to send the game into overtime. A sudden death overtime period with no scoring then led to a braveheart round. The heart-racing braveheart round started with a critical save by Somers goalie Marissa Long, followed by a sprint down the field and a powerful shot taken by Somers team captain Lindsay Skinner to win the game!
EVERY Somers player on offense and defense showed the heart and hustle of a champion. Amazing teamwork and a great day of lacrosse! Great job to all and WAY TO GO SOMERS!!
