VIDEO: Blair lacrosse drops season opener to Whitman, 13-3

The varsity boys' lacrosse team (0-1) fell to the Whitman Vikings (1-0) by a score of 13-3 in the season opener on Monday night.

Whitman's offense was too much for a depleted Blazer defensive line, which was without starting D-Pole Matt Whitney due to sickness. Whitney's absence would prove to be a huge blow to Blair's chances, as senior goalie Kit Durban was under constant fire from Viking offense.

Even with a new coach in Brown and a cast of exciting new players like freshman attackman Michael Reilly, the Blazers weren't expected to turn things around completely in their first game following a 2-12 finish in 2010. But a 13-3 loss wasn't quite what the team was hoping for, either. "We were confident going in," senior attackman Vishnu Rao said. "But it was pretty obvious from the start that they were the better team."

The varsity boys' lacrosse team will play their next home game on Tuesday, Mar. 29 against B-CC at 7 p.m.
