After the ceremony, the Panthers took the field against a very aggressive Colerain team. Within seconds D.J. Hume wrapped around the back side of the net to score the first of many goals for himself and the Panthers on the evening. Springboro was faster and more precise in their passing and racked up a 15-2 win over Colerain on the night. D.J. Hume scored 7 goals for the Panthers!! The defense shut down Colerain all night! It was a very aggressive and rough game for the Panthers but they dominated from the onset.
If you have not been able to catch a game yet this season you have absolutely missed out! The Springboro Panthers Lacrosse Club is 14-4 on the season. Springboro also has the top points scorer in the state with D.J. Hume. Points score is a combination of goals and assists. Hume has 104 goals and 37 assists in 18 games this season! Matt Garrett who missed tonights action with a seperated shoulder is ranked 8th in the state with points. Garrett has 53 goals and 39 assists in 16 games.
