Van College stops Sardis in field lacrosse battle

The teams met on a soggy afternoon at Chilliwack’s Exhibition Stadium, with the Falcons falling 8-5.

The Sardis Falcons field lacrosse squad fell to 1-1 on the season with a Thursday afternoon home-field loss to Vancouver College.

With rain coming down in buckets, the teams met at Exhibition Stadium and the Fighting Irish left with an 8-5 win.

We came up short, but overall it was a pretty good game,” said Sardis coach Dan Heisler. “We were down 3-1 at the end of the first quarter and 5-1 at the half. But we tied the third quarter 2-2 and won the final quarter 2-1.

“Our guys showed some great resiliency heading into the second half. We made some adjustments on defence and controlled the ball much better.”

The Falcons downed the Heritage Woods (Port Moody) Kodiaks in their opener last week.
