The Crossfire stumbled against the Twisted Cork/Regional Security Stylers last Thursday, May 10, losing 21-7.
The Crossfire were on the road for the second time this season, playing the Stylers at the Prince George Coliseum.
With a couple players who just finished playing in the Junior A league, one of the most competitive levels of lacrosse, the Stylers had the advantage going into the game against the rookie-heavy Crossfire.
Despite the loss Capitain and erst-while coach, Pat Gibbs is happy with the progress of the team, calling it a work in progress.
The Crossfire played hard in the first and second, managing to keep their points climbing, but started to look a little winded by the third when their score stalled and the Styers’ continued their climb.
“There’s a couple of us that could put a couple more (training) miles in,” said Gibbs.
Alec Gibbs topped the team with 3 goals on the game.
The team is looking forward to the return of Chase Jaegr, from Williams Lake, to the team from an injury early in the season said Gibbs. Jaegr broke his wrist in the Crossfire’s first game.
The Crossfire play again Thursday at the Twin Arena’s against the Bandits.
The last time the teams met turned into an intense game that more resembled outright war than a game. If the game hits half the intensity it did last time it should be a good show.
