San Diego Lulls Lull Panther City into a false sense of security with 10-4 win

On Saturday night when San Diego was 90 degrees the Seals traveled to Texas where it is 47 degrees and played the Panther City Lacrosse Club.

The Seals who were favorites coming in to the game, lulled Panther City into a false sense of security, only to rip the carpet out from under them and then proceed to beat them wih it.

But then again that is the game plan that seems to play out every week the Seals play.

Let the other team score a few times, let them get cocky then shut them down and pile on the shots from every direction and sooner or later they will go in.

The game line started off with P.C’s Mike Triolo scoring just 1:28 seconds into play off a swift feed by Dawson Theede.

Then backed it up at the 4 minute mark with a goal from Nate Grenon.

The Seals’ Wes Berg said “that’s enough”and scored on a Bang/Bang feed from Austin Staats and Noble at the 4:37 mark. Which ended the scoring in the first.

Second and Beyond

Anthony Malcolm scored the only goal in the 2nd for PC at the 5:59 mark. Staats scored at the 6:56 mark, and Leclaire Tied it up at the 8:45 mark.

The 3rd was all an Seals show. With Leclaire scoring 3:42 mark, then Berg 7:58, Staats 9:47, Dobbie 10:01, and Dobbie at the 11:24 mark.

The 4th Triolo scored for Panther City at the 4:10 mark which ended the Scoring for them. The Seals were not done with them though.

Berg scored at the 8:09 mark on a short handed goal, which was followed up with the Captain Brodie Merrill at the 10:19 mark short handed yet again going coast to coast and pumping it past Demude to finish the scoring for the game.

The Seals showed yet again why they are the team to beat in the NLL.
