Ashburn, VA (April 28 2017) – As the season turns towards the playoffs both the visiting Heritage Pride and the home-standing Rock Ridge Phoenix were looking to gain a bit of momentum. A win for either could motivate them for a run in the playoffs.
Chas Sumser, Viva Loudoun photographer, was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
As is typical of LCPS boys lacrosse, the play was very physical from the start. Very little separated the two teams at halftime, but Heritage held a narrow lead at 5-4.
The game was won in the third quarter as the Pride stretched the lead to 8-5. And the teams exchanged goals in the final quarter with Heritage holding on to the winning margin.
Final score: Heritage 10 – Rock Ridge 7.
