[score id=”49342″ align=”right”] The boys lacrosse team (1–2) fell short against the St. Johns Cadets 15–5 on Friday, suffering their largest loss of the season.

The team didn’t have practice the day prior to the game as the game was originally scheduled for Thursday, but was postponed until Friday due to weather concerns.

“Going into the game we knew it was going to be a tough matchup,” midfielder Liam Pierce said. “It was a tough start and the extra day without practice didn’t help.”

From the beginning of the game, the Vikes had trouble keeping up with the high-octane offense from St. Johns. On the other side, the team struggled offensively and the scoring gap was large throughout the game.

“We didn’t move the ball like we should have,” Pierce said. “Their offense was able to cut down towards the goal and get easy five yard shots off.”

The Vikes play the first of three games next week at Richard Montgomery on Monday at 7:15.
