A Good Showing for Short Handed Bantam Boys in Weekend #2

By Robert Wikstrom, 05/03/21, 8:00AM CDT


On Saturday the Bantams played their second game in a row with only 8 players, but easily handled the equally short handed Blazers.  They learned a lesson in good sportsmanship when winning by backing off defensively and passing the ball more instead of scoring at will.  The result was a game that saw a Bantam team completely over 50 successful passes.  This is a new Raptor record for a Bantam Team I'm sure!   Final score was 21-1
On Sunday the boys traveled to Mukwonago to face a good club.    They really had to work hard for the victory today. 
We only had 6 of our players, so the other team loaned us 2 kids each half.  We played the game with no subs. 
The offense was led by Blake with his 5 goals and Gavin added 1 goal.  Henry worked hard all day running as a middie all day with very little breaks.  He took a lot of Face-offs and helped us keep the ball on our offensive side of the field. 
On defense, Blake and Liam were lights out  and Alexio had 2 saves in the first half.  Birthday boy Liam took over goalie duties in the second half and had 4 saves to help us stay ahead in in the 4th quarter.  
The game ball went to Caiden who was playing in his first ever lax game and played attack and middie.  He took a couple  face-offs, scooped up several ground balls and played great defense when the other team had the ball.  
Overall each boys played their heart out and we ended the game with a 6-5 win to stay unbeaten.
