LXM PRO: Sacramento Recap
This past weekend the LXM ATS returned to California. Maverik United and Team STX were tied 2 – 2 in the series, which would set a competitive battle to take the series lead in Sacramento.
Back and forth goals throughout the fist half made for an evenly matched fight. Just before the half Maverik United’s Nick Tintle was out on a cross-checking penalty, giving Team STX the advantage at the start of the second half.
Team STX led 5 – 4 as the players headed into the third quarter. STX maintained their command through the quarter, but never exceeded a two goal lead. For every STX goal, Maverik United responded with a goal of their own. Entering the fourth quarter, Team STX was up 9 – 8. Crucial saves from Matt Russell in combination with a pair of goals from Davy Emala and Sam Bradman would put Team STX up, 12 – 9. STX closed out the game with a 12 – 10 win.
Post-win, Matt Russell, Team STX goalie, tended to a broken thumb, a mid-game injury! The rest of the players made their way to the official Knockaround Autograph Session. They met with fans, signed LXM x Knockaround posters, and handed out custom LXM x Knockaround sunglasses to a few lucky youth players.
Next stop, Atlanta.
