Okemos Girls Lacrosse Falls Short to East Grand Rapids
OKEMOS - The Okemos High School girls lacrosse team had a tough matchup against one of the top teams in the state Wednesday night.
The Lady Chieftains played East Grand Rapids, a team who lost in last years Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) Division II girls lacrosse final.
OHS allowed East Grand Rapids to gain an early lead in the first half with a good cushion to build on as the Okemos girls would go into halftime down 4-9.
In the second half the Chieftains came out and challenged the Pioneers to play and win that came. OHS would come out and and go on a early 4-0 run cutting the lead down to one. However, the Pioneers would come back and win the game 14-11.
“The second half is everything the coaching staff needs to know about this team that heart that determination we can work with that,” said Okemos girls lacrosse head coach Brandon Schwind. “So we just want to keep moving forward. I thought we played better tonight in the second half than I thought we did monday night against bloomfield. So we just keep making that upward trend we’ll be in good shape.”
Their next game is Tuesday, April 10 against Holt High School.
