Lady Laxers take down Soaring Eagles 18-3

I took the afternoon off and drove up to watch Alex's game today. They played great. The weather was horrible and there were 2 lyco fans and 2 Elmira fans!!!!!! Very funny. I yelled a lot. Alex started and played very well despite the cold rain! We went to the Bull Frog afterwards for a quick sandwich before I came home. Well worth the 6 hours on the road!!!!!
