London Varsity Series 2020: LACROSSE

No rain on the forecast for Varsity Saturday but grey clouds loomed ominously over UCL’s (aptly named) home ground, the King’s House Sports Ground, for Varsity Lacrosse. The red-clad strand faithful, a bit underwhelming in numbers for the first half hour (something something picadilly line), manned the sideline armed with pints aplenty – a perfect start to a glorious British Saturday morning.

Men’s Lacrosse

Gower started the game with intent – storming into a very early 3-0 lead in the first quarter and throwing the boys in red off balance. All hope seemingly lost (at least according to the half dozen spectators who returned to the bar for some comfort), the spirit of Wellington, Tutu and countless others shone through a parting in the clouds unto our players, fuelling hope. The game got tighter and more physical, as hordes of fans arrived in time for the late show. Some sweeping counters courtesy of Eugene Fung and Michael Parnell brought the game down to a 1-goal deficit. Game on.

Down 7-8 going into HT, a canine pitch-invader carried with it demonic spirits to dispel what momentum our boys had and turned the game on its head. The game quickly turned into a rout for the Godless scum – only aided in their task by the dozen-or-so of our shots that ricocheted off the woodwork. No luck this year, another point on the wrong side of the board.

Women’s Lacrosse

I think it would be a disservice to comment on the result of the women’s game (28-3 to the scum) so enjoy this picture of the pitch invader instead.
