– The first annual Freshman/Sophomore Champions Challenge was last Saturday with several teams heading to Orem for the event. It turned out to be wet and cold, so each team played their four games and went home. Here is the Park City user submitted recap: The PC FS team concluded their season today at the UVU FS Challenge. What was originally scheduled to be an all day tournament (8am-8pm) to crown a Utah FS Champion was shortened to a festival this year because of some really bad weather. None the less it was a GREAT way to end the season for our team. The boys did get 4 games in on the day. In the first game the team came out hot and beat Lone Peak 10-0. In the second game the boys trailed 5-4 at the half and then turned it on to win 10-5 over Pleasant Grove. In the third game they played the only team to go undefeated on the day, Corner Canyon. Trailing 6-0 with 5 minutes to go, the team put together 5 goals with 30 seconds left, but just ran out of time in the running clock format. In the final game against a previous unbeaten American Fork team, the boys jumped to a 4-1 lead at the half only to have AF tie it up in the 2nd half. The teams battled back and forth until eventually PC got the game winning goal from Ben “Practice” Lawson with under 1 minute to play and the 7-6 win. There was a ton of great play on the Park City side all day. Sam Addicott was a man at the faceoff X. Billy Honey was a stone wall between the pipes. Matt O’Obrien, Parker Burnham, and Kyle Walterson paced the offense that saw many players record points on the day. Skylar Marsh, John Luebbers, and Terran Nichols turned in some big defenseive stands. The PC Lax family would like to thank the players and coaches for great lacrosse under some cold and wet conditions. We would also like to thank Brae Burbidge, the UVU lacrosse team, and all those that helped put on an amazing tournament and experience for our team. And finally a special shout out to our family and friends that not only braved the elements with us today, but put on the best tailgate party a team could ever ask for. Overall it was a AMAZING season for the young Miner’s and Head Coach Wes Stout. The team finsished 9-2-1 in the regular season, 2-2 at Chill Lax, and 3-1 at the UVU Challenge.
