The Jr. B Warchiefs defeat the visiting Team USA U17 16-14 in Box Lacrosse action at the Gil Lay Arena on Saturday, September 25th. The game was played in front of approximately 220 lacrosse starved fans ready to watch Jr Lacrosse action for the first time in 2 years and they were not disappointed.
The game was played using the World Indoor games format, 4-15 minute period stop time with modified rules. Team USA came out firing and had a 4-2 1st quarter lead on the WarChiefs. It was no different during the 2nd quarter with team USA leading 9-3 at halftime. Coaches Mouser Henry and Adrian John must have given the team a much needed pep talk at halftime as the team settled down and played better lacrosse in the 3rd quarter although team USA held a 12-4 lead midway through the 3rd. It was then that the team score 9 unanswered goals to take a 13-12 lead and with 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter and team USA traded goals to tie at 14-14 and with two highlight goals, the Warchiefs came out on top to win 16-14 win.
