April 10, 2014The Grosse Pointe North boys' lacrosse team won its third game in a row last week, beating L'Anse Creuse 10-8 on a cold, rainy evening.
"We did a lot of nice things tonight, including playing well on ground balls and working the offense to get a lot of shots on net," head coach Mark Seppala said. "We need to work on a few things, including defense, but overall this was a nice win for us as we get ready for a very tough week."
The host Norsemen were a step slow out of the gate as the Lancers built a 4-1 lead.

The Lancers once again scored the final goal of the period to take a 7-6 lead heading into the final period. The goal came in the final seconds.
