First Game, first Victory

After a nervous start and losing the first quarter 0-1 Maastricht Lacrosse cruised to a 12-1 victory in their first match of the season against Nijmegen 2.

The newly composed squad was battling their nerves in the opening quarter creating a lot of turnovers in midfield. Nijmegen capitalized on a bad change by the Lamas to take the lead early in the first quarter.
Thanks to the Veteran effort of some of the more experienced players on the team, play settled down and the offense began to gain momentum in the game.

After several nice feeds by American Exchange student Jason Monroe and his fellow teammate from Muhlenberg Daniel Thomas, Adrian Hoffstädter scored the first goal of the season from close range.
From then on, momentum was on Maastricht's side. Two quick goals extended the lead.

Jeremie Jochmans, Paul Ehret, Matt Gallo, Daniel Thomas, Jason Monroe, Moritz Tengelmann and Adrian Hoffstädter scored the rest of the goals against a resigning Nijmegen team. 

All in all, a great way to start the season. There is still a lot of work to do.

Autum has risen and the long road has begun.
