After two successful practices on the UNSW Oval, the Americans had dealt with their jetlag’s and were ready to take on the NSW State team. The 15 men squad fielded not less than three UNSW players, our executives Jonathan Horlyck and Jonas Heller, as well as just-recent UNSW alumni Callum Wyllie.
Under perfect floodlight conditions, the NSW state team faced a strong and young American team and came short on a great game of Lacrosse. Head coach Paul Young summarized the game: “I thought the field was fantastic and it is a great venue for lacrosse, especially under lights. It was a good game and it was great to see a couple of new players playing their first game. The opposition was quite a talented squad, but we held our own against them even if we were a little scrappy at times. I would love to see more games at UNSW. Whether it be day or night it is a great venue.”
