Homecoming losses for city’s new lacrosse team

The Philadelphia Waterdogs played its first Homecoming Weekend as Philly’s new men’s professional field lacrosse team over the weekend. Despite a pair of overtime losses, the crowd at Villanova Stadium got a thrilling showcase of the sport.

Dresher native and Waterdogs star Michael Sowers looked visibly dejected after the team’s two losses, but said he still drew pride from getting to represent his city for the first time in the Premier Lacrosse League.

“To be able to play in front of family and friends at 26 years old and just seeing that all come together and in the city as a whole, it’s obviously super special,” Sowers said. “Obviously wish we could have given them two wins, but I know we’re gonna be back.”

On Saturday, Philly faced the Boston Cannons, a team that has emerged as a regular rival for the Dogs. Sowers set up Ryan Conrad to score and tie up the game 11-11 with just 0.8 seconds left in regular time.
