Every single one of the guys was determined to make up for the disappointment following the Seattle event.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Coming off a strong performance for Team USA at the Duel in Denver this past September, lacrosse icon and Team STX captain Kyle Harrison continued his recent on-field success with three goals and two assists (3-2-5) against Team Sole on Saturday, in a high scoring affair that saw Team STX come out with a 16-14 victory. The win evened the fall season series between the two LXM Pro Tour teams to two wins apiece.
Kyle Harrison opened the scoring for Team STX just over two minutes into the first quarter with an unassisted goal. In a sign of things to come, former University of Maryland standout Max Ritz tied the game at 2-2 just minutes later with an impressive unassisted goal, his first of three that day, before finishing with 3-1-4. As the first half drew to a close, Team STX opened a six goal lead over its opponent (11-5).
In a game that featured what has become the LXM Pro Tour trademark style of wide open, fast break play, the most compelling story was that of rookie sensation Sam Bradman. Bradman battled through flu-like symptoms that included sideline nausea and dehydration. Despite his illness, Bradman managed to post three goals to keep STX ahead of Sole as the game wore on and the play between the two teams became intensely physical down the stretch.
“We were intent on winning to even out the series,” said Bradman. “Every single one of the guys was determined to make up for the disappointment following the Seattle event. I just did my part, that’s all. The same level of effort came from everyone on the squad.”
Throughout the match Team STX’s goaltender and former Naval Academy three-time All-America selection, Matt Russell, kept a sharp focus even while the play was more often at the far end of the field. Russell made several critical saves in the fourth quarter as Sole made a late comeback bid that fell short.
Team STX mid-fielder Max Davis took Player of the Game honors after a strong showing at the face-off X and solid two-way play that included a critical blocked shot in the second quarter.
