AV Varsity game recap vs Minneapolis

It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but the Apple Valley Boys Varsity lacrosse team came away with a 12-7 win over Minneapolis on Saturday. A sluggish first quarter found the boys down 1-0, but a second quarter sprint saw them notch 4 quick goals in about a two minute span. Midfielder Kevin Cranmer led the way with a hat trick and Alex Johnson and Luke Martinson scored their first goals of the season. Sam Kotsonas was solid in goal, saving 9 of 16 shots. Both JV and Varsity teams try to keep their winning ways going as they open their conference schedule on the road against Shakopee on Tuesday, April 19th.

Not only were the Eagles of Apple Valley defeating the Eagles of Bloomington Kennedy, but Apple Valley was scoring in twos.

On the defensive side, Tanyi Besong and Adam Johnson shut down the Bloomington offense at key moments of the game. Ground balls were dominated by AV and goalie Sam Kotsonas made ten saves, none bigger as the crease stuff with seconds left in the game.
