  thanks to Ted Swoboda for the pictures!   15/12/11. That’s not the European way of saying December 15th, 2011. That’s the stat line of the second half.  The stat line of the ultimate efficiency of a high school lacrosse team. 15 shots . . . 12 shots on goals . . . 11 goals . . . oh, and 3 turnovers just to show there was some human frailty in those 24 minutes.  Well, they lost the faceoff battle too . . . 8-5 at halftime turned into running time in the fourth. To those in attendance, those watching the NFHS broadcast, even those who were from Raider Nation . . . just tip your cap to what happened last night; you won’t likely see this level of lacrosse over 48 minutes, on both sides of the ball, for quite a while.  Even if Inside Lacrosse will not acknowl

pictures by Ted Swoboda   It’s on to Saturday night for the Sharks and the Raiders.  One looked to get there from Day One and glided through their pathway until having to grind it out yesterday while the other was not expected to get here but found a way to win 2 OT games on their path, including yesterday’s solo dash through traffic.  And you saw two very different games yesterday. The prediction from the preview article still holds, and I think you will see a similar game to the PV-Jupiter game as STA can also dominate the faceoffs and that plays into what is called a ‘slugger’s chance’.  But I’m sticking with it.  I picked PV to beat Oxbridge in the Preseason Top 25, picked them in the Final Four preview, and I’m sticking with them to win their first title. Come on out

  Friday afternoon, starting at 4:00pm at Boca Raton High School, sees three repeat attendees in Jupiter, the defending state champs, Ponte Vedra and Bishop Moore, with St. Thomas Aquinas making their return to the event. Plenty of storylines.  A rematch from about 5 weeks ago between Jupiter and Ponte Vedra while Bishop Moore and STA get it on for the first time this season.  Two teams still seeking their first taste of the gold ring and two that have won the last three titles! Let’s get it on! Oh, and don’t forget, we also get the Girls’ Championship game right after the Boys’ Semifinal!  Pretty sweet deal for the ticket price . . .   Ponte Vedra vs. Jupiter at 4:00pm Forget the start time . . . this will be worth playing hookie a little early from work on

  And remember: #TAFTAG – Take A Friend To A Game! #LacrossePutMyButtInThisSeat! #EnjoyTheGameNotTheBlame! and . . . #LacrosseRocks!   District 6 Ponte Vedra Hosts District 4 Bolles at 7:00pm Once a rivalry between two of the best programs in that area years ago, Ponte Vedra has pulled away in recent years.  In the regular season Ponte Vedra defeated Bolles 16-2 at home.  That was in early March but there’s no reason to believe the gap will narrow that much. PV eased past Lake Mary 12-5 in the last round and Bolles squeaked out an exciting 17-16 win over Maclay. Bolles has had an excellent season but Ponte Vedra has had a dominant one.   Prediction: Ponte Vedra will win this comfortably in their continued march to the elusive gold ring
