BUCKS OUTLAST VENICE LAX 17-14

     After taking some time off after their overtime loss to Olympic Club in the California Post Collegiate State Championship game it was time to start preparing for a run at the State title but it all begins with winning the SCLAX North Division and to that end the Bucks took the field on Sunday for a scrimmage against the much improved Venice Lax team.

   The Bucks started the scoring off just 2:10 into the game when  J D Johnson started a fast break clear off a Morgan Weireter save found new Buck Mike Gvozden cutting off “X” and fed him for the opening score. But after several turnovers by both teams Venice found the back of the net at the 14.05 mark and then took the lead just two minutes later with a one hopper from about ten yards out. Then, at the 7:07 mark Devon Maxwell knotted the score on a feed from Nick Smith. Still married Charlie McNeil  then drove from the midfield line intent on shooting but spotted Sean Kane cutting to the crease ahead of him and fed him for the go ahead goal. It was Beverly Hills up 3-2 at the end of one.

        Sean Kane, certainly one of the hardest working Bucks the entire game started off the second quarter right where he left off at the end of the first as he curled off the crease and fired one past the keeper at the 17:84 mark of the quarter. But Venice wasn’t going away and answered with two goals in the next three minutes to tie the score at 4’s. The score held until the 8:38 mark when Devin Maxwell drove and fired from midfield to put the Bucks back up by one. Sean Kane recorded a hat trick when he curled off the crease again less than a minute later to give the Bucks a two goal lead and after Venice answered with one at the 4:44 mark, Brock Livingston found Sean open again for a score. Sean added the final score of the quarter with a midfield rocket as Beverly Hills went into halftime with an 8-5 lead.

       Venice held 9-6 advantage at the faceoff “X” while Buck netminder Morgan Weireter had eight saves. The Venice goalie had three. Groundballs were relatively even and the long layoff from the 2016 season by both teams led to five turnovers for the bucks and ten for Venice. But the big statistical difference was takeaways as the Bucks, led by one each from Devin Maxwell, Mark Bell & Alex Marcus and three from J D Johnson outdid the Venice team total of two.

       The second half was a virtual offensive slugfest. Venice scored the first two of the third bringing them within one but Nick Smith got one back at the 15:06 mark on a feed from Conor O’toole. Venice answered twice and took their first lead of the game, 9-8 just two minutes later But Sean Kane scored his fifth goal of the afternoon in spectacular fashion by taking a rocket feed from Brock Livingston and corralling the Venice goalie’s rebound into a crease diving score to tie the score. Venice answered to take back the lead but a driving Alex Jessup spotted Sean Kane open again and the score was knotted at 10’s with 8:46 left in the quarter. Venice racked up two more but Conor O’toole answered with one of his own and Venice held a 12-11 lead at the end of three quarters.

      We all knew that Venice Lax has been a team on the rise over the past few years and the Bucks found themselves in unchartered waters as the trailed going into the final quarter. Alex Jessup, not just a defensive specialist anymore ripped one in driving from the midfield less than a minute into the quarter but again, Venice held their ground as they answered twice taking back a two goal lead. Devin Maxwell returned the favor with a solo dodge starting at the midfield and then Sean Kane picked up a rebound and fed Brock Livingston who tied the score up 14-14. The Bucks then really picked up their defensive pressure and held Venice scoreless for the remaining seven minutes of the game while on the other end, Devin Maxwell fed Brock for his second score, Brock fed Sean for his sixth goal of the afternoon and Devin fed Brock one last time giving Devin three assists and Brock a hat trick as Beverly Hills walked away with a hard fought 17-14 win.

       The second half stats mirrored the first half. Faceoffs were even at ten apiece. Morgan had six saves to Venice’s five, turnovers were even and the Bucks added five more takeaways as Stu Selonick, Conor O’toole, Alex Marcus, Shane Sweigart and Mike Gvozden each had one. The Bucks will take the rest of the month off for the Holidays. They will then travel up to San Luis Obispo on January 28th for perhaps their toughest preseason game ever as they will take on the a very strong Cal Poly team which is ranked #2 right behind Chapman University in the latest MCLA Division I preseason poll.

BUCKS PRESEASON SCHEDULE IS SET

     After completing their most successful season in their ten year history the Beverly Hills post collegiate Bucks are now gearing up for their 2017 campaign keeping their eye on the prize and hoping to get another shot at the California State Lacrosse Championship after losing to NORCAL’s Olympic Club in the 2016 state championship on the road.

     Part of “gearing up” is working new players into the lineup. This year we will be looking to absorb the loss of five standout Bucks who have left the area……five year close defender from U C Santa Barbara James Guzik…..four year middy/attack standout Skyler Hopkins…..three year attackman Kyle Peterson…..two year midfielder Zach Paz and two year standout FOGO Cyle Moskowitz. On the fence is three year starting middy Conor O’toole who famously scored the overtime goal that gave the Bucks the 2016 SCLAX SOCAL Championship.

     The other part of “gearing up” is getting back on the field and giving some new players a chance to work themselves into the rotation. To that end I am happy to announce what I think is our best preseason set of games that we have ever had. Unfortunately due to the lack of responses I have had to cancel the first scrimmage against Venice on November 27th. I will try and reschedule for early December.

     Our first scrimmage of the new year after the "holiday layoff"  will be a long trip up to San Luis Obispo to take on a very good MCLA Division I Cal Poly team on Saturday January 28th. Cal Poly is ranked #2 behind #1 Chapman in the 2017 MCLA poll and lost to Chapman in last year’s MCLA Championship game. We will figure out the car pooling for the game as it is a three and a half hour ride. The past three years we scrimmaged U C Santa Barbara but it didn’t work out this year. I am sure we will find a very good and very disciplined team in Cal Poly.

     Our final preseason scrimmage will be against another MCLA team. We will travel to Irvine to take on Concordia University who are ranked #4 in MCLA Division II. They are very well coached and lost by one goal to Grand Valley State in the 2016 MCLA DII playoffs. Grand Valley State was the eventual runner up to St. Thomas, the DII Champion.

     I know that we all have other jobs, families and in many cases we are coaching teams. Please try and adjust your work schedules to accommodate as many of these games as possible.
