Game 1: Vallivue vs. Centennial
PatsLax started the fall season with a doubleheader, open the day against Vallivue. The Vallivue team is a collection of players throughout the Treasure Valley that have come together to play for the fall season. At first look, the size of the team was a concern for some parents watching on from the sideline, but our boys quickly help us realize that they were up for the task. With an eight-point lead at halftime, the Pats had a commanding lead going into the second half and were able to finish with an eleven point win.
Game 2: Meridian vs. Centennial
Our second game in the first doubleheader of the fall season started out with Meridian coming on to the field more aggressive and with fresh legs., but our boys were able to pull together and stay ahead of the Warriors through the first two quarters. With the Pats leading at the half, coach rested the varsity players and provided the opportunity for some of the younger players to take the field. Meridian was able to rally, but our young team did a great job holding them and not allowing Meridian to pull ahead. We ended the third quarter tied at fives. The more seasoned players came back on the field in the fourth and closed things out with an additional three points for the win. Our Pats where able to finish the day 2-0 for a great start of the fall season.
