The Raiders defeated host Gulliver Prep 10-3 in a weather-shortened regional final after waiting out a nearly two-hour lightning delay. Because Gulliver Prep does not have lights on their field, officials decided to call the contest with the Raiders ahead entering the fourth quarter.   Read the rest HERE

thanks to Paul Kabalin for the pictures! (note: edited to account for an incorrect goal scorer) It didn’t take long. 72 hours or so. Right after I saw the incredible STA win over SA, a game I thought would be my in-person game of the year, I got something just as good . . . 46:11 . . . That’s how long Cardinal Mooney controlled this game for.  It was the 3:13 after that that denied them their first Final Four appearance. The What-if’s this summer will be many and painful. The biggest what-if might well have been at 46:11. How many times have you heard on a TV broadcast an announcer pooh-pooh a late icing on the cake goal by saying ‘but it gives the trailing team a chance to win the faceoff’?  And 99.99% of the time that’s just a hollow warning as the leading team won the game anyh

  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

  No one in attendance last night will forget this one for a LONG TIME.  High school reunions will include remembrances of THAT NIGHT.  It will supplant the 2012 playoff game, wiping those memories away.  This one somehow managed to exceed last year’s fantastic ending.  That one was kind of dull until the 4th quarter and ended white hot. This one started white hot and after a little lull in the second quarter, took off like a championship final.  If this was played May 11th instead of last night, it would go down as an all-time event. Alas, it was only a regional semifinal. How sterile can you sound?  The NCAA Basketball tourney has great nicknames, the Sweet 16, the Elite Eight.  Gainesville has the Region 4 Semifinal.  Why do bureaucracies have to be so boring?
