Boys lacrosse: Taking on established foes

Farmington's boys lacrosse team is getting shown every game just how good it will have to get in order to be competitive against the established varsity programs in southern Minnesota.

The Tigers, in their first varsity season after years playing at the club level, fell to 0-4 after a 10-2 loss to Lakeville North last Tuesday night in Lakeville.

The Panthers jumped out to a 3-0 lead through the first quarter and ended up scoring on 22 percent of their shots while outshooting the Tigers, 46-14.

"We have been a varsity program for just over three weeks now and have already played four games against teams with established programs. Needless to say we have to do the little things if we are to be successful: take the extra step, get the hustle plays and dig down as a team," Farmington coach Paul Sorensen said. "We need to improve on defense all over the field and committing ourselves to that aspect of the game. That will drive everything else."

The Tigers had their lowest offensive output of the season. Quinn Malcolm and Mitch Collier each scored their fourth goals of the season and Jake Bauman and Trevor Howard each had assists.

Charlie Weirke went the distance in goal and stopped 36 Lakeville North shots while allowing 10 goals in 48 minutes.

The Tigers are back at home tonight at 6:30 p.m. when they host Rochester Century.
