Loveland, Ohio – Thursday, May 27th the Loveland Tigers fought hard for the regional title against Mason High School, a very even match-up. The game could’ve gone either way, but the women fought hard and won 11-10.

The game started and finished very back and forth. Just a few minutes into the game it was 2-1 Loveland. Then they were tied at 3. Every second of the game counted with Loveland and Mason constantly scoring a goal to tie or one-up the other team.

This proved true all the way to the final 5 minutes of the game with Carly Wilhoite (senior) scoring Loveland’s 10th goal and Mason scoring their 10th goal shortly after.

Josey Storm (senior) shot the team’s winning goal after the team ran the clock down to 2 minutes. These final minutes afterward were extremely frantic with Mason pushing for a goal to tie the game and Loveland trying to run the ball until the time would run out.

With just 12 seconds left, Mason’s goalie launched the ball to her teammates when Elly Steinbrunner (sophomore) jumped in from defense and intercepted the ball. Unfortunately, a time-out was called by Mason’s coach before Elly got the ball, so Mason still had the ball in their possession.

At this point, there were 7 seconds left in the game, but the time was reset back to the 12 seconds before the goalie threw the ball. Loveland and Mason huddled up to devise their strategies for the final seconds of the game. Mason still had a chance to tie the game up.

Mason ran straight to the goal, but unfortunately for them, shot the ball way too far. After being passed the ball, Maggie Nance (senior goalie) held it for the final 3 seconds. Thus, the Loveland Women’s Lacrosse Team beat Mason 11-10, winning regionals and moving on to the semi-finals.

The Tigers will be playing the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks at Mason High School on Wednesday, June 2nd. Dublin beat Upper Arlington 11-9, a major upset for the 10-time state champions.
