The Paly boys’ lacrosse team suffered a difficult loss to Sacred Heart Prep Tuesday, only scoring 11 points to SHP’s 19.

Jonny Glazier (’13) scored 6 goals, while Weston Preising (’13), Skyler Anderson (’13), Walker Mees (’13), and Tully McCalister (’14) each contributed as well.

The Vikes struggled to connect passes in front of the goal the first three quarters. Despite this slow start, the team seemed to reenergize in the fourth, scoring a number of goals in an attempt to close the gap.

Unfortunately, they were unable to come back, but came away with ideas of how to improve their play.

“The hustle was there, it was just a lot of mental mistakes and they were a really good team so they capitalized on every mistake we made. I think we need to play smarter and work on our fundamentals,” Mees said.

Other players held similar sentiments.

“I think we found a few flaws in our slide packages that we’ll be able to correct and close out next time,” Anderson said.

Regardless of the loss, the team looks forward to the rest of the season.

The Vikes take on University this Wednesday away, and play Menlo Friday, at home.
