Wolverines Come Up Short in Overtime

The Aliso Niguel High School Men's Lacrosse team loses 9-8 to the Woodbridge Warriors.

Aliso Niguel Varsity Men’s Lacrosse team could not overcome a sloppy first half as the Wolverines lost to the Woodbridge Warriors 9-8 at Wolverine Stadium Wednesday night. 

The Wolverines (1-1) started off slow with a penalty in the first 30 seconds of the game. Woodbridge midfielder Benjamin Robinson took advantage of the situation scoring right away to give the Warriors an early lead. Aliso struggled with picking up ground balls the entire first half and Woodbridge went into halftime with a 5-4 lead.

The Wolverines picked it up in the second half and controlled the ball most of the third quarter. Attackmen Nolan Werner and Michael Traub combined for three goals in a 4-minute span in the quarter.

Down by one in the closing minutes of the game, Aliso was attacking the net desperately trying to tie it up and Ryan Dale scored with 1.6 seconds left in the game. Aliso had the ball to start overtime but could not capitalize. Woodbridge took the ball up field and Connor Klug scored the game-winning goal uncontested to win the game 9-8.

Woodbridge (3-1) will host Marina on Monday in their next game. Aliso Niguel will play host to Esperanza Saturday night at Wolverine Stadium at 7:30 p.m. You can catch Aliso lacrosse games live and on replay as well as other Aliso Niguel sporting events at livestream.com/ansn.
