Ashburn, VA (April 28, 2017) – As the season turns towards the playoffs both the visiting Heritage Pride and the home-standing Rock Ridge Phoenix were looking to gain a bit of momentum. A win for either could motivate them for a run in the playoffs.
As is typical of LCPS boys lacrosse, the play was very physical from the start. Very little separated the two teams at halftime, but Heritage held a narrow lead at 5-4.
Chas Sumser Photography was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
The game was won in the third quarter as the Pride stretched the lead to 8-5. And the teams exchanged goals in the final quarter with Heritage holding on to the winning margin.
Final score: Heritage 10 - Rock Ridge 7.
