Caddo Magnet falls to St. Paul’s

Eight hours of rain, lightning, and heartbreak

Sure, the St. Paul’s Wolves defeated The Caddo Magnet Mustangs 17-7 in the state semi-final game, but it took them eight hours to do so.

The game began at noon, and saw multiple lightning delays. The longest break in action coming with 5:50 remaining in the third quarter; the game was delayed for 4 hours. The score at that point was St. Paul’s 10 Magnet 4, but after the delay (and before the delay) St. Paul’s scored more points than Magnet.

Magnet had a dominate season; but on Saturday the Mustangs were matched up against the only team returning from last year’s Final Four, The St. Paul’s Wolves.

After the game, senior Jack Howell reminded his brothers (Magnet Lacrosse Team), just because it needed end incredible, doesn’t mean it wasn’t incredible. — (those Magnet kids are always so smart).

The 2019 Magnet team was the best season in school history. Those men were some serious ballers.

I enjoy covering high school sports, but unless a team wins the championship, their season ends in heartbreak. It’s always sad to see coaches hugging the seniors, juniors hugging the seniors, seniors crying with seniors— ok basically everyone is hugging and crying.
