Make it 10 in a row; IMG Academy lacrosse downs Newsome
In their first game back from Spring Break, IMG Academy got off to a sluggish start when they faced Newsome. However, the team got in gear and came to life by the end of the first half, scoring three goals over the span of the last minute to provide a 9-4 advantage before the half. IMG Academy went on to win by a score of 16-8, extending their winning streak to 10 games.
Defensive Coordinator Jason Basso was unhappy about the slow start, but commended the team on regaining their composure. Basso remarked, “The team regrouped and had a great scoring run at the end of half.”
Jonathan Thelen led the way, scoring seven goals and adding three assists, while fellow attackman Jackson Costello had four goals and two assists. Ryan Dance and Cody Gray added 2 goals apiece.
The team will travel to Port Charlotte tonight and, then Lakewood Ranch on Thursday as part of a challenging stretch of three games in three days.
