Moving to 2-0

Sir Nicholas King of Ground Balls

ALC pulled out the win this weekend over San Antonio, 15-3. The defense put on a show and the offensive production was stellar. James Mansfield and Rudy Perales led the team with 3 goals and 5 goals, respectively; proving that if you try to shoot through the goalie enough he will eventually move out of the way. Matt McIntosh and Rich Chen lead the team with 3 blown goals.

After the game Bronson requested that “The Hermanator” moniker be stripped from Sir Nicholas until further notice due to his consistent ground ball performance that yielded a goal on Sunday. What do you think? (vote)

Next game is against PBR in Houston at Kincaid School (map).

  • 11am – ALC D1 vs PBR
  • 1pm – ALC D2 vs PBR Lite

On another note, apparently the players of ALC are broke or lazy because dues have not been received from the majority of the team. A wise man once said “Don’t be that guy…that guy with the black eye…” Rudy.


Our next game is this Sunday, March 11th, at 1pm against San Antonio D1. The game will be held at the Westlake practice fields (map). There is no D2 game, but D2 players are welcome to come out and shoot around: we’ll have 2 fields for 2 hours.

Next weekend we will be traveling to Houston, TX to play PBR on March 18th. D2 will play at 11am and D1 will play at 1pm.

A few housekeeping issues:

  • Please bring dues or paypal them before the game. $175 for vets, $200 for rookies
  • Uniforms will be handed out at the game this Sunday (rookies only).
  • USL memberships (link) are required. The membership fee is only $50 and is a good supplemental (or primary) insurance while playing lacrosse. Ask Eric Glass about his experience.

Opening Weekend

ALC D1 and D2 traveled to San Antonino this past weekend to take on the San Antonio men’s team in their season openers.

D1 faced off at 1pm and jumped to an early lead. They cruised into halftime with the game, in the words of Coach Rocky, “in the bag.” Coach Rock was soon eating his words though when San Antonio came out with a vengeance and reeled off 6 goals to ALC’s 1. In the end, however, Austin prevailed winning 17-8. Chris Esposito was a major contributor dominating the face-off X.

We had a chance to catch up with Austin’s very own Stuart Shaw after the game who was still visibly shaken from being bulldozed in third. When asked what he thought of the game he responded, “the whistles go whoo whoooooo.”

The D2 game kicked off at 3pm and was dominated by ALC from beginning to end. Sig played stellar in between the pipes and THE “Minnow” put on a shooting clinic going 0 for 223. Jordan Stone and Danny Harper were the leading scorers with 2 goals and 3 goals respectively. The finals score was ALC 13, SA 1.

Congratulations to Nick Hermandorfer who broke the team record for most ground ball attempts without actually touching the ball.
