BC Struggles Through Back-to-Back Losses to Olympic Club

BC faced off against Olympic Club twice in one week with a pair of Friday night games which featured a highly-talented, efficient O.Club offense and "less-than-exemplary" performances from BC. Barbary fell short in each game, losing 9-6 and 11-6, respectively.  In a sullen turn of events, BC is presently challenged to ride-out this season's low-point, 3 straight losses, and double-digit injuries in the hope of keeping their record above .500. Despite internal obstacles, BC has been challenged to match the 2017 Olympic Club team - among the best the Club has fielded in several seasons.  OC's...

BC Slips to 4-2 After Marin Loss

Barbary Coast and Marin Lacrosse Club had their first encounter of the 2017 season in a Saturday morning game held at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, CA.  The game got off to a balanced start, with each team playing hard between the lines and trading early goals in the first quarter.  In the first half BC was led by a strong defensive performance from Matt Levy in cage and Frank Cuneo, who generated six caused turnovers in the first quarter alone. The BC offense saw goals from attackmen Skyler Hopkins and Dan Vilar, yet Marin led 5-2 going into half. BC continued its defensive stand...

BC Moves to 2-1 in Rainy Win over East Bay

The previous weekend's California sunshine was not to continue as Barbary Coast and East Bay Athletics took the field on a windy, rainy evening at Beach Chalet Fields (located in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park at Ocean Beach).  Both teams showed up ready to play, getting off to hard-hitting start in-between the lines.  Strong play by BC's Yosef Becher at the face-off X afforded BC numerous possessions but the East Bay defense was up to the task, both East Bay goalies were solid in cage and their defense won the ground ball game over the course of the evening.  However, deliberate offensive...

2017 Season Kick Off: BC Goes 1-1 to Start Season

Barbary Coast began it's 2017 NCLA season with a double-header weekend, playing league games against Olympic Club and Palo Alto Lacrosse Club. BC took on Olympic Club in the first game of the weekend on Friday night, jumping out to any early lead with Olympic Club tallying back immediately after.  The first half favored Barbary Coast, but only slightly.  Both teams went goal-for-goal, with BC leading 5-4 going into halftime.  Strong transition play and an effective ride allowed Olympic Club to outscore Barbary 4-1 in the second half and ultimately end up on top, winning 9-6 when it was all said...

Spring Break: Seattle

The 2017 Spring trip saw Barbary Coast head North to the city of Seattle, Washington for some vacation, team-bonding, and an opportunity to meet more out-of-state opponents - KAVU Lax and Seattle Lacrosse Club. BC played two games on the weekend: a Saturday evening game against KAVU (BC 16 - KAVU 12) followed by up a midday contest against Seattle LC (BC 11 - SLC 10). Both games exhibited a spirit of friendly competition and high-quality lacrosse from all teams. A massive thank you to Team KAVU and the Seattle LC for hosting the games and being so welcoming, we will hopefully meet again in the future. BC...
