The Skyline Girl's Lacrosse team made it into the State Championship game on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The Skyline Boy's Lacrosse team lost in their Semifinal match against Waterford 8-9 on Wednesday night. I was excited to go and support the girls because I know several of them on the team. The weather seemed iffy in the morning as it rained and poured enough to cancel Keaton's baseball practice at 11:00 a.m. I packed rain gear, umbrellas, blankets and gloves in case it really was super cold and wet. Fortuately, the sun came out and it was beautiful weather for a lacrosse game.
Jacek and his friends went separately and I miraculously talked Keaton into going with me because we thought Jill and Max were coming. NOTE: Jill had a flat tire on the way to the game and didn't make it. :( It was fun to the see the two teams out on the field. I loved how they called everyone's name on both teams, but they messed up Liza's name twice. They called her Leeza McDowell.
A lot of students and parents came to watch and support the girls. We sat in the middle of the students and it was fun to listen to them blowing their horns and cheering loudly for their school team. I got to hug and see lots of my friends- Jim and Jackie McDowell, Susan and Michael Dahlstorm, Monica Ferreira, Lorelei and Carl Gorski, Mo and Joanne Vincent from Park City came down to watch the other team as she knew some of the players.
I loved how the airplane flew over the field twice during the game. Very cool idea. I actually saw the plane circling over by our house later that day during the Boys' Final State Games.
Park City came out strong in the beginning scoring two quick goals, but we answered right back. Once we passed them and into halftime, we dominated the entire game. It was 4-2 Skyline at half and the final score was 10-9 Skyline. What an exciting game and the girls were over the moon thrilled to win as Park City was definitely favored to win.
The students and parents rushed onto the field after the game and I was teary-eyed as they presented the trophy and medals to the girls. It was a fun victory and so proud of all the girls.
