YOWZA!!!: Knights 6, Barons 5

An exciting proud moment. I'm not a sports mom. I show up when I can, but I barely follow the game. For the most part I couldn't care less if they win. I worry about boys getting hurt and standing up to the pressure. More than once I've told my son, my son, "just quit the team - it's too much time." Perhaps this is his way of rebelling - not only by continuing, but excelling beyond all expectations. Surprising all of us, even himself. Doing so great! I'm so happy for him. Sweet victory!

You read it right, boys and girls. In a stunning upset, the amazing 2007 McCallum Lacrosse Team made team history with a first-ever win over perennial lacrosse power St. Mary's Hall on a hot afternoon at Noack Fields today. The victory advances the Knights to the District Championship game at Noack Fields Sunday, Apr. 29 at 4:30 p.m. vs. the #1 seed Austin High Maroons.
MVP of the game for the Knights was Daniel Steinman, who scored 2 goals, won seven face-offs, and led the team in ground balls with a whopping 13. The Game Ball went to goalie Wyatt Pierson, who had 10 ground balls and a season-high 20 saves, including 7 in the 4th quarter when the Knights held the Barons scoreless for the final 9 1/2 minutes to preserve their 1 goal lead.
Come out tomorrow and support this remarkable team as they take on their next quest: A place in the State Championship Final Four.
Full report to follow.
