Week 6 Game Review
FINAL SCORE: BEAVERS 14 VS COUGARS 27
BEAVERS (4-2) COUGARS (2-4)
Shanghai Lacrosse welcomed players from Beijing, as the Cougars recorded another W this past weekend. Coming off knee surgery earlier this season, playmaker Trey “Beavereater" Steidle made a huge impact for the Cougs at midfield, dominating the Beaver defense and sticking 8 goals in his first game back. Mark “Teamplayer” Collins' pocket runs deep as he frustrated defenders, fighting off double and triple teams, leading the Cougars with 4 assists, including one quick stick slam dunk to Mike “the Godfather" Elefante.
The Beavers were missing several of their key players, forcing long pole Andy “Dadbod" Coker to pick up a short stick and run midfield in the first half. While Coker recorded 4 goals in the game, the Beavers struggled to maintain possession and contain the advances from the experienced Cougar attack.
Scary moment during warm-ups when goalkeeper Dong “Brassballs” Zheng went down with a knee injury. Brassballs Dong bounced back quickly and played a stellar half to seal the win for the Cougars. Dong earned this nickname after playing keeper without a cup in his first game with Shanghai Lacrosse. (Don’t try this at home, people.)
See you all next week! Stay tuned and stay wild.
