Daily Trojan file photo.The Washington, D.C.-native has produced multiple big games this season. During USC’s 11-8 win over No. 18 Notre Dame on the road, Johns recorded 11 saves. In a loss against No. 10 Northwestern, Johns managed to add four saves and four ground balls.“During practice, our main focus is to build on what we want to be both individually and as a team and fix the things from the past game,” Johns said. “Right now we are just taking it game by game, but I am excited to be back at McAlister Field with the team.” The team will face off against No. 2 Boston College at McAlister Field on March 7 in USC’s first home game of the 2018 season. This game is particularly important for the women’s lacrosse team as it doubles as a rematch of the 2017 NCAA Quarterfinals in which the Eagles eliminated the Trojans. “I am excited to play BC,” Johns said. “They are a good opponent, so it’ll be an interesting game for sure.”Before USC started competing in the Pac-12 for lacrosse for the first time this season, Johns won MPSF Defensive Player of the Week three times and was chosen on once as the league’s Rookie of the Week.Johns is one of two goalies named to the U.S. Women’s National Team roster for the 2017 FIL World Cup. She is also the the first-ever USC lacrosse player to be chosen for the U.S. senior national team and compete for Team USA in the FIL World Cup.last_img read more

Wolmer’s captain wants to end season with title

first_imgWolmer’s Boys’ captain, Kashaun Smith, said the Heroes Circle-based school should have had a more successful 2015 schoolboy football season. However, he believes that the Walker Cup KO title is worth fighting for and declared that his team would be giving everything to end with a trophy. “It is our last match and a chance to get a trophy, and we are going to do our best. We would have wanted the Manning or Super Cup more, but this is still a title, and we are going to do our best to win it,” he told The Gleaner. The right back is part of the Wolmer’s strong defence, which conceded just seven goals in 15 matches this season, three of which came against Jamaica College (3-1) in the Manning Cup quarter-final. Despite St George’s potency in attack, the defender is confident, they can nullify the threat of Alex Marshall, Shevon Stewart, Gregory Messsam Jr, and company. “They are very good footballers, scoring a lot of goals, but our strength is defence, and we are confident that we can keep a shut-out, but we have to take our chances when we get them and make as little defensive errors as possible,” he continued. “I think I have done well as captain. There is a lot more responsibility and the pressure to lead the team on the field as well as off it. But we are in a final. “This will be a very interesting match-up. The best defence against the best attack. What will decide the game, though, is who makes fewer mistakes, so we have to take our chances when we get them and make as little defensive errors as possible,” he said.last_img read more
