(ATLANTA, GA- April 5, 2019) The San Diego Seals saw their five-game win-streak come to an end on Friday night with a 17-10 loss to the Georgia Swarm at Infinite Energy Center.
“They were really well prepared,” said general manager and head coach Patrick Merrill. “Right from the opening whistle they played with a purpose and put us on our heels. They out-competed us and executed all night. They’re a good lacrosse team. We can’t play like that if we expect to beat a team like that. We need to rebound quickly and think about New England to get a split on the weekend.”
Dan Dawson lead the Seals’ offensive efforts with a hat trick and three assists. Forward Casey Jackson added two goals, and forward Garrett Billings finished with four helpers. Defenseman Brandon Clelland won 74% of the faceoffs on the night, while transition player Drew Belgrave netted his first goal as a Seal.
“It obviously wasn’t the result we wanted,” said forward Austin Staats. “We’re going to have to have a short memory and be ready for tomorrow night. Every game is big at this point. We know what we have to do to get it done tomorrow.”
The San Diego Seals are back in action tomorrow night as the team heads to Mohegan Sun Arena to face the New England Black Wolves on Saturday night at 4:00 PM PT. San Diego returns home to Pechanga Arena San Diego on Friday, April 12 for the season-series finale against the Saskatchewan Rush. Reserve your seats today at SealsLax.com.
