The schedule became clear to us today. Tomorrow we must beat the Dutch for the chance to play the Welsh once more, if we win both of these games we get 9th place. If we lose to the Dutch we play the Koreans, a fight for 11th place. This made our goal very clear – we must beat a team we have beaten to play a team who have beaten us, making both games perhaps harder mentally thanks to the history. Read More…

2012 Scotland U19 Lacrosse Blog From Turku, Finland



Today, was all about lifting team morale after yesterday’s loss against the Welsh. With the team deflated and most of our minds clearly in the wrong place, we were taken out for an unconventional training session.

The weather helped, with the sun hot enough to allow just pinnies. We reminded ourselves that although we could now only finish 9th, if we won our next game we could face the Welsh again, motivation enough to get everyone’s head back where it should be. I personally found ice cream, Subway, and muffins helped me get over the loss. Read More…
