Hartland lacrosse fell to Haslett-Williamston in season opener, 12-14.
Hartland Boy's Lacrosse hosted Haslett-Williamston Wednesday night and according to Coach Trenton Gafner, it was a "great" first game to the 2013 season because once the game got going it was a battle to the end. Haslett took the lead to start. Then Hartland had an 8 to 5 lead going into half. But Haslett came out strong in the second half and edged Hartland 14 to 12 to earn a great win. Both teams played with class and was a fun game. We just let it away from us. They seem to capitalize on our mistakes more in the second half and that is what got them the win. "We learned a lot about who we are as a team," Gafner said. "We are excited to get back on the practice field to fix our mistakes. Seasons aren't won in March they are determined …
