Things didn’t go well right from the get-go for the SHS lacrosse team in their match against Bloomington South High School (BSHS) on May 1. Before the game even started, SHS faced some technical difficulties when trying to play the National Anthem which led to the team having to sing it themselves. The bad luck continued for SHS as they lost the game 12-10.

“We lost on fundamentals,” said head coach Thomas Wright.

SHS started off  scoring the first goal of the game, but it was back and forth from that. Southport’s defense slacked on fundamentals which allowed BSHS to take a 12-8 lead with three minutes left in the fourth quarter.

SHS had little time to try to comeback and win the game. They ended up making the game exciting where they scored two goals in less than two minutes to make the score 12-10.

Despite the heart-wrench of a last-minute comeback falling short, not everything was an upset for SHS. For senior Jacob Tellas, he was able to record his first double hat trick in the four years he has played. A hat trick is where a player scores three goals whereas a double hat trick is where a player scores six goals.

“I keep getting pulled at five (goals) and that was my first time getting six,” said Tellas.
