The SLA boys Ultimate team beat long-time rival Archbishop Carroll 15-12 on Thursday in a tough game where Carroll gave the Rockets all they could handle. Carroll came out playing it's classic zone defense against SLA, and the Rockets struggled early, falling behind 4-1. However, junior Nate Little led the team back with three straight goals scored to tie the score at 4-4. SLA looked like they were preparing to take over the game, scoring repeatedly to take the half 8-5.
But Carroll proved to be too tough to dismiss, as they whittled away the Rocket lead as the second half wore on, pulling to within one goal at 12-11 and again at 13-12. But SLA put on one final push and scored the last two goals to clinch the win at 15-12, with Kobe Nabried, Nate Little and Jori Gerveni scoring the final goals.
The team looks to build on its win at the Radnor Invitational Tournament this Sunday. Go Rockets!
