LCS 1st Ultimate Team Showcases Skill and Tenacity in CISAA Playoffs
Our 1st Ultimate team recently captivated spectators as they hosted the CISAA Division 2 playoffs on Wednesday. The thrilling semi-finals saw LCS take on Country Day School on Lefevre Field, showcasing their remarkable defensive prowess and well-coordinated offensive plays. Spearheaded by standout player Devon ’23, whose exceptional defensive blocks and offensive contributions stood out, LCS took an early lead and secured a well-deserved victory with a final score of 15-9.
Moving into the finals, LCS faced a fierce battle against DeLaSalle in a tightly contested match amidst challenging windy conditions. Both teams exchanged down-wind scores, with DeLaSalle managing to gain a slight advantage by securing a crucial break just before halftime. Undeterred, our team made an impressive comeback after the break by implementing an unexpected zone-defence strategy, narrowing the gap between the teams. However, despite their valiant efforts, a lengthy 25-minute point concluded with DeLaSalle scoring upwind, leaving LCS with limited time to stage a complete comeback, ultimately securing a well-earned second-place finish in their league.
As the competitive season draws to a close, our 1st Ultimate team will have one final opportunity to showcase their skills at the Cobourg Beach tournament on May 31. Well done, 1st Ultimate Team! We look forward to cheering you on next week.
